Search “HTML Sandbox” in the FR search engine.

See the keyword "html" above your first post? Click on it and you will find many threads explaining how to do it.

Since you don’t want to get dirty in FR Sandbox, perhaps going to Google and typing “html” in the search box would do the trick for you. There are literally hundreds of tutorials.

Use html IMG SRC - right click on the image to copy its url location.

enclose the following line in left and right arrows <........> - remember the quotation marks as well

IMG SRC=”paste copy of the link location url - might need editing”

easy - squeezy

One way to find out how to code just about anything, is to look at the source code for a page that has the effects you want to use.

For instance, to find out how to insert an image, simply:
*go to a thread with an image;
*In Internet Explorer, click on “Source”, under the “View” menu;
*Find code used for inserting the image (look for nearby text);
*copy the code, and substitute the address for your picture (you’ll find it under “properties”)

The html really is not that difficult. Use [img src=”XXX”] where XXX is the URL of the photo you want to insert. Also, substitute < > for [ ]. I could not do it here or all you would have seen would have been a red “X”

If it is an image you have on your hard drive, the easiest way is to open an account with Photobucket . Once you upload a photo, it gives you various options for inserting the image including img src or IMG, or the direct link.

Thank you very much! I did not look at the sandbox, since it means something different to me. Plus, since this would be a common activity, why didn’t “they” simply put it at the top?

Thx again.

1.) The image must already be hosted on the Internet.

2.) Copy the URL of the image. In Firefox, you would right click the image and select "Copy Image Location".

3.) Paste the image URL in place of [image] in the following code:

<img src="[image]">

You can upload photos to photobucket.com. Once there, they provide the HTML code under each photo for you to paste into your post.

Because HTML coding is a basic skill common to all websites. You might as well ask why a fitness center doesn't put a sign on the front door with instructions on how to tie your shoes.

Why remember all these HTML commands, especially the more complex ones, when you want to insert a picture or link to an article??

Get the Firefox browser and install these two extensions/add-ons:

BBCode and/or BBCodeXtra

Both can insert your HTML code with just a click. And they have bulletin board codes too ( [ ] vs. < > )
