Code to insert an image without stretching: (ORIGINAL CODE)

<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat"><br><img src="URL"/></div></div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox"><br>Body text here..</div>

<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat"><br><img width="1000" height="1600" src="URL"/></div></div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox"><br>Body text here..</div>

Mine used to work, but when I went to change it, I redid the whole thing and it turned out to be way too small. Please help me.

I couldn't get this to work for some reason
CypherVisor Featured By Owner 3 hours ago
Umm, what's wrong? Most of the times it is due to incorrect image URLs. Check the code for links properly.

This works on normal groups! I just cant place text over the background image (only above or under the actual image).
< div class= "gr-box gr-genericbox" >
does not work for normal groups :(
