testing....





you have to mind your HTML tags. thats the bits in the square brackets. one IMG starts the image, and the /IMG ends it.
you can see that you have one with a partial url  which the board software cant parse. after that it just gives up.


You are a star !!! Many thanks again - I 've learned something today  :wave:

Just as an extra aid to this thread here is what you should be aiming for in posting pictures using links from Photobucket or other upload sites:-

Code: [Select]
[img]http://i894.photobucket.com/albums/ac147/Jonathan_Clapp/tags.jpg[/img]
will display the picture above, or

Code: [Select]
[img]http://premium1.uploadit.org/Sprintex//res-090321-tunnel.JPG[/img]
to give:-



Hope that helps someone  :)

Please remember that when typing the post, all you will see is the pasted link in text.
Only when the "Post" button has been hit does the pic/jpeg etc reveal itself to the world.
(You can always check by going back into your post to see if it's there) :thumbsup:

Do you mean the avatar (pic on left under your name and details) or in the signature (text at the bottom of your posts)?

If you go into your Profile and click on 'Forum Profile Information' you can upload an avatar straight from your PC. If it's a picture in your signature that you want then you use the same code stated above for posting pictures in threads using the 'img' tags.

For instance, my little HST at the bottom of my posts appears due to the following:-
Code: [Select]
[img]http://premium1.uploadit.org/Sprintex//hst-intercity.gif[/img]
Hope that helps  :thumbsup:

Well, correct link, but not the right format to show it the way I want to...

You're almost there. :)

On this forum when you are creating a post, click the Image tab (hover over the buttons until you see a picture frame that says Insert Image).  Click it, and some coding will appear in the box, and you just insert your URL or link between the codes.  As shown below....

Code: [Select]
[img]INSERT YOUR LINK HERE[/img]

As a suggestion, could the forum admin not install the mod from PostImage.org ... available here ... http://www.postimage.org/mod.php which allows you to upload an image to their website and automatically link it (or a thumbnail if its too big) into the forum post.

I use it successfully on my phpBB forum at Making Tracks and it works a treat. Appears to be available for SMF as well though :-)

Regards, Tony

Thanks Tony, I had looked into it already on the SMF website and installed it, but it clashed with another modification.  I appreciate the suggestion though. :thumbsup:  I'm hoping to get more advertisements on here so that I can afford the webspace and allow members to upload photo's to our host.

It also shows in preview so you can see if it's okay before you post, just in case you've accidentally put a link to some personal pictures. :o ;D
