    Dumb Question: Help Needed Posting Images

    I am so Embarassed can't seem to figure out how to post images I have created or URLs to them. These are specifically maps that are being created for an upcoming series of articles based in the Dramidj.

    Whenevever I try; I get - [img]map name[/img] or [url]map name[/url] in words.

    Do I have add a certain .something to the image name or what?

    A step by step instruction would be appreciated - If successful you all get a sneak peek at a map from the project.

    I know the solution is simple and incredibly obvious, be kind commenting on my stupidity.

    You need to type the complete URL of where the image is stored between the [img][/img] tags. For example, typing
    Code:
    [img]http://members.cox.net/dmprata/Sunndi.gif[/img]
    displays this image from my personal campaign map:

    You need to upload it to the internet before you can embed it in a forum. Photobucket.com and mediafire.com are both good free hosting choices.

    Lets put another "dumb" question in this thread. How do you link an actual website link to a word, as in

    You may find a version of that map HERE.

    I'm always forgetting the correct code to do this the right way! D'oh! Embarassed
