oh please god let this work, it's driving me nuts.
well obviously it didn't and i give up. can't get my signature to work. followed the directions for bbc code and still didn't get it. so mad i could spit right now.
Now i've succeeded in making it a link. But i thought the was supposed to do that. NOT [img] ???
try <img src=http://hometown.aol.com/zeemax/myhomepage/johngt.jpg>
Siragan's table of truths: (for the current board layout)
the a href html tags for linking don't work
the BBCode img tags don't work
The BBCode url tags work
The html img tags work
siragan heh, I was talkin to a coworker today who we usually call sir cause he was in the airforce etc. and I said sir we have to do it again, and suddenly I thought about you. sad isn't it? "sir...again" :roll: :lol:
Hey Siragan, thanks for your help. I copied the text you wrote and applied it but still comes up with the dreaded red X. Makes me wonder if AOL doesn't allow linking. I could upload to aol masquerading as a TXT file, but they don't allow uploading images saved as txt...
But I will succeed, oh yes I WILL.
That's it exactly - AOL doesn't allow linking. I linked to my old picture on the FordEscortOnline site and that worked. Except that they don't have my new pictures. Oh well! All I gotta do now is adjust the width and height so as not to take up the entire page.....
Ok, think I'm done now. All I have to do is find a site to host my new pictures and I'll be set.
http://www.tripod.com is an okay place to host pics. free, 20Mb, easy site to use. doesn't allow direct linking, but rename to .txt and it's fine. it lets you rename as you upload so there isn't much hassle. i've been on a tripod account for about 6 years, hasn't quit yet!
I/ve just signed up with a site called Villagephotos - managed to link out one photo which was H U G E. Resized it and now can't do anything with it at all!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Most people overlook it when seeking webspace.. but very often your ISP will already have 10 or 15 meg allocated for you on their webserver.
very good point, though usually it's only highspeed isp's that give webspace as a bonus (at least around here...). i was on a 56k dialup when i got my tripod account, so i just never had that option. plus the tripod url is a little bit shorter
