I'm using the following which works on other forums. Sorry I am not very computer savy. TYIA

The pic is online, so the problem is the image statement tag in this forum.
Just click on the IMG button, and paste in the full URL (the IMG box inserts the "http://" prefix for you) looks like an extra "SRC=" or stored responce chain is in there that is hosing it up.




Edit: Hmmm... I thought that would do it. The pic is working as a link, but isn't self-loading. I noticed your file is not *.JPG

I went in to Frequently Asked Questions section and it says:
"Only certain types of files may be attached: these are the valid file extensions for files to be attached to this board: gif jpg png txt zip bmp jpeg."

The problem is that the link you are trying to post is not actually a link to an image file. Apparently the hosting site you are using uses a .dll file to call up a picture ID number rather than linking directly to it. The only way I see around it is to save the picture onto another server that will give you access to the actual image file rather than using a .dll to mask its location.

Forgot to mention: The reason that this might work for other sites is that the code you are using in your post is HTML rather than the vB Code that we use here for posting images and links. It is similar to HTML, but very limited. Many forums allow posting using true HTML, but this forum does not give the user permission to activate that feature. The HTML code might be able to display the image using the .dll as a pointer, but vB Code is limited to only displaying a picture when it is given a direct link.
