Post subject: make a photo appear BESIDE text???

Hi guys...great to see a forum like this standing behind phpbb2!

So I was wondering....what options do I have to make a picture appear BESIDE text in phpbb2? I want to do the equivalent of what this does in HTML:

Code:
<IMG hspace=8 align=left
src="http://www.myimage.com/myimage.jpg">Here's where all my text goes.


With that, the text would appear all the way to the TOP LEFT space just to the right of the image.....rather than the text appearing totally below the image, or to the BOTTOM LEFT space to the right of the image (which is what using my installed [align=left] tag did).

So, how can I make the text appear NEXT TO the image instead of below it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe this is the Mod that does it:

That was for RC3 of phpBB2.0.0 so is a very old mod. The pattern numbers would need to be looked at very carefully as several bbcodes have been added since then.

However that is not what he is wanting to do.
When you place an image into a post with the image tags and then enter text the image is treated just as text in the way it is aligned. The text that follows is in line with the bottom of the image.
What he wants is to be able to post an image and then start the text that follows it in line with the top of the image.
The sort of thing you would create a table to do this, with the image in the first cell and the text top and left aligned in the next cell.

And, because I already had it added to my board, I knew exactly what he wanted and that this did just that:

Image link

Image link

So, unless I linked to the wrong Mod, that should do the trick.


(And sorry if I came off as bitchy there. It's 6:00am, my dog won't shut up, and I have cramps like you can't imagine...)

Yes, I was indeed linking to the wrong Mod. Looked at my files and found that this

http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/8628

is the correct Mod to install.

Yes I see. I had downloaded and read the blurb on the first you posted and that did just allow to align the image left or right.
This new one you have posted looks interesting and certainly allows for creating a more professional look to posts.
Going to take a look at that one and decide whether to add it myself.

I had long ago decided that enough was enough with adding mods but still they are very tempting aren't they?
