I don't understand these new fangled computers...

I want to post a picture that I've found on the internet into a thread...but can't for the life of me work out how to do it.



Can anyone help?

Posted:heh i love 'walking wounded', that etbg song got me into drum n bass!

okay to UBB post an online image, put the URL of the image between two img tags like:
[img] URL [/img]
note that the second img tag has a slash to denote that it's a closing tag.
it's important not to leave a space character between the tags, or it will break.

Posted:great its really easy. Click reply on my post. A box will come up with lots of stuff under it. Click on 'image' and another box will appear. In this new box you put the address of an image..... not the site as a whole that you find the image on but the image adress.

Posted:Lillie Frog, only if you put it up on the net somewhere other than the HoP gallery. You can get free photo galleries to put them up in many places.

Here are a few to try, but remember to check out the terms and conditions of posting.

Village photos
Photo Navy
Photobucket

I hope that helps smile

Posted:Thank you Skully

It's not what I wanted the answer to be, but if it's the way it is then there is nothing to be done about it.

At the momment I don't have enough pics to bother dealing with photo bucket or whoever, there was just a curious little pic someone sent me.

Oh well.
