    He wants to do like this post:
    http://www.terraforums.com/ib312....t=20128
    I don't know how and don't have time to check it out....

    Here is the coding for the first picture in that post.... (minus the spaces)

    [URL=ht tp://img35.imageshack.us/my.php?image=p10101144uf.jpg][im g]ht tp://img35.imageshack.us/img35/1338/p10101144uf.th.jp g[/im g][/ URL]

    so copy paste that somewhere and subtract the spaces to see the coding...

    Hi
    Thanks all for the replies!

    Adnedarn: That's exactly the way i do it on other forums. Interestingly if i copy the code from above, it works. But it doesn't work with my own pictures. Could it be a problem of my webaccount?

    I know Phil recently made changes to the forums so people could use links for photos. Not sure if that's what you're talking about. But I've certainly seen other people do it here but can't remember who it was.

    I think image shack does it automatically, no?

    In any case, most photo hosters offer you a smaller version and a larger version of the photos you upload, you should be able to pust the smaller one (whether it be a very small thumbnail, or only a little big smaller than the original) and use that to link to your host space. From there, people should be able to easily get to the larger version.

    You could always get a program that makes thumbnails for pictures in mass, then use them as the link to the large photo. Make sense?

    Your code is wrong... The img code you used when I checked is
    http://www.utricularia.net/tn....mg
    Obviously some stuff is missing there it should not have .... in the file name... there should be more file info there....

    His coding is right, just:

    There is a length limit. If you shorten the length of the link it will work. The forum automaticaly crops link text strings that would stretch the page, and since you are really making a text link with a image instead of text it crops the thumbnails url.

    I had major problems with it, until I shortened up the length of all my file names.

    Hello,

    Many thanks for the replies!

    The problem is really the length limit! I am using my pictures on my homepage as well as sometimes on forums. I will not be able to rename any filename just to show them here. Besides this, i can not really understand why there is such a limit. If a link is posted, that streches the page, it would be very easy for a moderator to change it. I think, such a limit is absolutely not necessary.

    There isn't really an option to change this behavior in the control panel (that I see). I think it's a bug with the forum software. It may be fixed in a future version.
