Is this a doable thing?
I know how to do thumbnails as image tags (will some smart person correct my words if I am using the wrong ones) - I store my images on my isp's server (where I'm allowed free space). You need to make a thumbnail of the picture you want to link to, then type in something like this (I have deliberately added spaces to break it so you can see my example:
.jpg[/img ][/url ]
...and this is is what everybody sees on the page:
<<<< Click On Image
Thumbnails are great, but alot of work.
The other forum I frequent doesn't host images at all, that is just one nice thing about this forum. I don't even know if thumbnails can easily be automated for us members to use when we post on threads.
I don't know for certain , but I expect Organic Hosting (aka Andy) provides these forums at his own expense - donations cheerfully accepted - and in his spare time. Both are priceless commodities, but sometimes I think we we ask more than we realize from our web masters (forum masters?), and moderators, too. Thanks Andy.
