Franco I've never done the "picture link" before but it has to be easy. lol. try it this way and see what happens....

Normal syntax....

[url=*www*.something.com*][img*]insert image file from PB or the Shack here[*/img][/url*]

DO all of that w/o the * and you should have a linkable picture. :grin:

YEP it works.. I actually may have helped someone. :)

CLICK the HELLO of course ... it'll take you to a google search for the image HELLO....

If you like you can "quote" this post and see how I did the "clickable picture"....

GOOD LUCK mate!!!

No, it can be any picture.

I think you might be getting caught by the Astrix's in Greenmans post as he may have used them to stop it from actually displaying as a photo?

His code is correct but you must discount (do not use the * symbol)

HTML:
[url=www.yoursitehere][img]insert url from PB/image Shack here[/img][/url]

Delete the www.yoursitehere and input your own.

Delete the insert url from PB/image Shack here and after you have uploaded the picture to your host it will give you a URL link, insert that there.

Thanks for the help guys- This is what I am doing



Trying to use a photo from my Flickr account to post on my myspace account to link to my magazine site. It's not working for me- is it a bad url?

Try this

<a href="http://www.vgpromo.com/">
<img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2439/3609270528_1f91959fe9.jpg" width="333" height="500" border="2" alt="enter your link in text" />
</a>

Replace "enter your link in text" with whatever you want it to show.
