Picture Links

on: March 31, 2011, 06:04:57 pm
Well, time to play noob again  :P I can't seem to find out how to have a link and a picture (when you click on the picture it directs you to a certain webpage)  :mean:. I've tried the normal BBC (BCC?) code and nest the picture in a url, but that didn't work. Help?

Edit: Hang on. Worked in preview, then seemed to change.  :-[

Edit2: Now I'm curious. This (long url format):
Code: [Select]
[ url =www.google.com][img]http://i.imgur.com/me5uZ.png[/img][/ url ] (remove the spaces before and after url)
works when the post is previewed, but then turns into this
Code: [Select]
[img]http://i.imgur.com/me5uZ.png[/img]

When the post is actually made.

Are picture links removed because of the image scaling? I know I've seen at least one linked image in a signature, though.

Edit 3: Nevermind. Putting a single character before and after the image tags makes the link work. Which... seems odd to me, but I can live with that. That fact that it's possible to get a different actual post than what appears in the preview with the same message text is very strange.

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.google.com] [img]http://i.imgur.com/me5uZ.png[/img] [/url]gives:

I make actual NES games. Thus, I'm the unofficial forum dealer of too much information about the NES

[ img ]  link to file on website [ / img ]

Remove the spaces and replace the insides of those tags with the http://www.yourwebsite.com/image.jpg or whatever you need.   That works for me across multiple forums.
