We have tweaked the Forum / Message macro tags in the following ways:

1) For parts, the color of the image may now be specified by adding a comma and
the BrickLink part number after the Item Number:

 
Part No: 4085d  Name: Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
* 
4085d Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
Parts: Plate, Modified {Blue}
 
Part No: 4085d  Name: Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
* 
4085d Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
Parts: Plate, Modified {Medium Blue}
 
Part No: 4085d  Name: Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
* 
4085d Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
Parts: Plate, Modified {Dark Bluish Gray}
 
Part No: 4085d  Name: Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
* 
4085d Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Vertical - Type 4 (thick open O clip)
Parts: Plate, Modified {Light Bluish Gray}

2) For sets, instructions and original boxes, the suffix is only needed when
it is not "-1":

 
Set No: 493  Name: Space Command Center (Flatplate version)
* 
493-1 (Inv) Space Command Center (Flatplate version)
161 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 1979
Sets: Space: Classic Space
 
Set No: 493  Name: Space Command Center (Craterplate version)
* 
493-3 (Inv) Space Command Center (Craterplate version)
145 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 1979
Sets: Space: Classic Space

I have a hard time understanding the sentence, in fact, we should read "a comma
and the BL color number" and not "BL part number".

Still, a direct link to color codes would be welcome, I doubt anyone knows them
all perfectly.

This bug has already been fixed but it isn't live yet. We are also adding
the color name to the macro tag.
