Centering images


(Rafael Solci) #1

Hi, i was loonking into more formmating options and stuck with a problem with centering things in a post.

<center></center>

Works nice on texts.

Like this

But when i put emoji or images within center tags, its breaks

This text is centered, and this emoji :D should be also centered

If i put an image link discourse doesn’t even embed the image.

Also, is there anywhere i can find the formatting options?

Thanks

Center should not be an allowed tag, anyway. @eviltrout can you make sure that’s not on the HTML whitelist please?

may i ask why?

center do something bad to de code or something? will be a way to center elements in the posts without this?


(Jeff Atwood) #4

It is unnecessary and irritating, like the blink tag. Markdown has no concept of centering.


(Luke Larris) #5

Does that mean centering text and other elements will not be available in Discourse?


(Sam Saffron) #6

It means that out-of-the-box we will not have it enabled. But, as always, on your forum your rules apply.

While not agreeing with the centralization be something annoying, I’ve read more about the definition of markdown and agree with you on that part.

Thanks of the information :smile:

Sure, it's fixed now.

So - I’m trying to showcase an image in a post I’m making.

How does one go about centering an image in a discourse post?
