You have to wrap the images actual URL in the img bbcode tags. Remember, you must use the URL of the image, not the URL of a page in which the image happens to be embedded.

For example, the following code:

Code: Select all

[img]http://scotthughes.biz/images/index.7.gif[/img]
would display as:

Image

Remember to make sure the image isn't too big for the screen.

Thanks,
Scott

Is there a way to place an image on this website and then refer to it?

Aside from avatars, no user images would be held on the forum's server. Rather, links will refer to offsite images.

Note that if I try to post this as an image I receive the message "Your images may only be up to 500 pixels wide" http://study.com/cimages/multimages/16/gastrulation.png

So the Image
