Email link using an image...

Hi all!

Tried to find an answer using the search function, but to no avail so I figured I should simply make a new topic for my question... :)

Does anyone know how to add an e-mail link to a post using an image for people to click on - rather then a text link?

Wrap the image in URL tags.

Code: Select all

[url=mailto:whatever@whaatever][img]http://www.theimagelink.com/image.jpg[/img][/url]
mm scratch that, it doesn't work.

In that case I think you'd need to request an email BBcode to use instead of [url]

...which I've been trying to do all the time, but the result always ends up like this;

Do I need to add an mail BBcode for this to work?


:mrgreen: Oh, didn't notice you updated your post as well...


Okey, so now that this topic has been moved to a new more proper place due to its outcome, does anyone know how to add a BBCode for this to work? If not, may anyone be up for a request to fix one? :)

Thanks in advance...

email bbcode is already there, just no button for it. example:

Code: Select all

[email=you@yourdomain.com][img]https://www.phpbb.com/community/images/smilies/icon_eek.gif[/img][/email]
which produces this:
