    Hi,

    I have a website with some pics on, but not sure how to put the link into my text so they show in a thread.

    Can anyone help?

    Ta mucho

    doesnt just typing the web address of where the pics are work? Am I being dumb now? :oops:

    If not - save the pictures to a host site like www.photobucket.com and the paste the TAG into the text when you write a post

    HTH xx

    To get the url of the pic, right mouse click it and go to "properties"
    Copy the text that appears, for example


    http://www.photowebsite.co.uk/babypic1.jpg

    Then you need to use the Img tag (the button above the text box where you type when posting) if you don't want to use the Img button, just type the right thing:

    you need [​IMG] at the end

    so it looks like this

    [​IMG]

    Hope that helps someone!

    Thanks got it, I am a pro at hosting pics now. Perhaps there should be a thread in the Useful Information to get you started forum??
