    Default Is there an html code to link pictures?

    I know we can insert small pictures by attachment, but is there a way to link them from another website using html like other forums?

    Hi, Burgandy. Thanks for the feedback. That's called 'Image Hot linking'. I have the feature turned off because if someone ‘Hot links' to an image to which they don't have permission to link, we're basically stealing bandwidth from that other server. Since our forums allow you to attach an image to a post, this is unnecessary anyway.

    For those who are unsure of how to add pictures, here are some instructions on how to add pictures to your post:

    Step 1 - On the New Topic or Post Reply pages, click the “Browse” button next to the “Attachments” window. This opens a pop-up where you can find the file on your local hard drive that contains the image that you'd like to upload.

    Step 2 - Once this is complete, click the “Submit Post” button at the bottom of the form.

    Okay, thanks. I was basically just going to link my own dslr photos around town, from either Flickr or Imageshack/photobucket. They were too large to shrink without losing quality.

    Burgandy, because you're totally awesome, I enabled the "image hot linking" feature.

    Here are some instructions on how to hot link images hosted on other websites...

    Step 1 - On the New Topic or Post Reply pages, paste the url (website address) of where the image is saved into the "Message" table.

    Step 2 - Highlight the url and click the <img> button. After you click the button, the code should look like this:

    Code:

    You rock, thanks Gus!
    I always link my own images through imageshack, so to not steal bandwidth or photos from others.
