It would be neat to see some more formatting options for text. I'd like to be able to wrap text around an image to be able to personalize/customize the pages more with graphics. :D

Already available! http://www.rprepository.com/help/bbcode.php

In fact there's even more than what I've gotten around to adding to the help files so far, including color options for text. You can probably guess what it is. ;)

GASP! Then I propose there is a link above each textarea that links to the full BBCode! :D I thought the things that are visible are the only things (b/i/u, size and numbered lists)!

Actually, come to think of it, I'm not sure if the current codes handle text wrapping around images. If not let me know and I'll add it to my list of things to look into.

I'll go right now and slip in a link in text widgets to see how that helps people. It may take a few days to show up; most things spend some time lurking around the test server before they get released into the wilds. ;)

I just tried it and it doesn't wrap around images, no. BUT. I can center all my stuff now which makes me happyyyy.
I never managed to get text to wrap around images, either, although I thought that was caused by my lack of understanding of codes. Anyway, if it ever becomes possible, I would very much like to see the code and explanation added to the bbcode help page of this site, to help poor souls like me. XD It would definitely be neat if, in the case of an image that is not very wide but rather long, it would be able to be displayed on the left or right side of the text within the widget.

This is now available. Visit the BBCode page again and look under images for a demo. Be warned, the text wrap is VERY powerful and will wrap everything and the kitchen sink. ;)

Ahahah! :D This opens up a lot of possibilities! Thank you! ... *nods solemnly* I shall endeavor to use this power wisely. XD

Behold the image text wrap!!

Kinda sucks having a ginormous resolution (1920*1080) because the texts stretches out reaaaallly far for me.

NEW SUGGESTION! Make the text-area on templates a fixed width for those who prefer it? This is more a suggestion for myself though. <.<

Making that image text-wrapped really kicks that profile up a notch. Awesome!

Different templates have different designs. Most of them are "liquid" to take advantage of ridiculous monitor sizes (I too have a monitor so epic, it is named Goliath) and to prevent people whose screens are an incredibly high resolution from seeing the site as too tiny to read, but others exist and more are on the way. I think the current fixed width templates are the parchment and the stone series. :) Probably not what you're looking for for Femke, though!

If I were going to make an individually tweakable template, I'd probably do a series of templates that could be custom colored before I did ones that could be changed from liquid to fixed because I think that would help more people.
