    Newbie question

    I have been trying to determine if there is a way to access graphics files from a website other than photobucket? I have a business website and would like to post on a forum pictures that I store on my web server. These are not pictures that are displayed on my site necessarily. I use Yahoo as my web host and have uploaded some picture files there for safe keeping. Is there anyway to pull those images directly from a forum elsewhere without placing them in an html file? Thanks for any help.

    Code:
    <img src="full url of the file">
    works on any website

    as far as webforums go

    Code:
    [img]full url of the file[/img]
    is how it typically works if a forum has images allowed

    Thank you SOOOO much! I was just about to post that it would not work. I have tried both the [img] and href and a half dozen other things that I thought might work. The best I could get was a link to the image. It turns out that the img must be capitalized - [IMG] to work but without your post, I probably would not have figured it out. Very much appreciated!

    Various forums use different variations based on the type of code they use.

    [img][/img]
    [IMG][/IMG]
    <img></img>

    are the three most common. I have seen a <IMG></IMG> but only once.

    I did not realize there were so many different ways.
    From now on, if something does not work, I will try the CAP/no Cap first! Thanks for your input.
