Hi Mike nice to hear from you.

CLick on the http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Help.gif icon above. It explains that this board uses an easier version of
html called IB. Instead of <img src=http://www.yourweb.com/ya_sure.jpg>
use http://www.yourweb.com/ya_sure.jpg (close with a ).
for a link just add a \ in front of a url.

Terry

PS. hey mike, clave alert

Hi Mike! In addition to Terry's good advice,

IMAGES:

I cut and paste URLs from a second browser window - first type in <font color="008800"> [<!--no-->img= </font><!--color-->

then go find the image i want in a second browser window...
copy the URL out of the Location window, then paste it into the message (above) and close it with a <font color="008800"><!--no-->] </font><!--color-->

so it becomes... <font color="008800"> [<!--no-->img=http://www.flyfishingforum.com/images/chum1.jpg<!--no-->]
</font><!--color-->
which produces:
http://www.flyfishingforum.com/images/chum1.jpg

LINKS

You open with <font color="008800"> [<!--no-->url= </font><!--color-->

then provide the URL itself, close with <font color="008800"> <!--no-->] </font><!--color-->

example: <font color="008800"> [<!--no-->url=http://www.stripers101.com<!--no-->] STRIPAH [<!--no-->/url] </font><!--color-->

Produces... <!--http--><a href="http://www.stripers101.com" target="_blank"> STRIPAH </a><!--url-->

The difference is, you can give it a text string which becomes the link!

More in the help file as Terry says.

That's it! For links, use URL instead
