Thanks Bob, I've never been able to get [url] to work, I've been using [img] instead. I've tried [url] several different ways but it never works.
btw, here's my flickr url if you want to poke around:
EDIT added by Bob Andersson
I'll use my superhero Moderator powers to edit this post and add a clickable image to it so you can see what's happening by clicking the Edit button.
I use the Firefox browser but where appropriate I will give the IE procedures as well.
On page http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=2119467245&size=m
I right-clicked the image and copied the "Image Location" to the clipboard (in IE right-click, select "Add to Favorites" and copy the URL to the clipboard before dismissing the dialog). The resultant URL is http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2208/211 ... f2fe3e.jpg
and surrounding this with the usual [img]..[/img] tags gives:
So how to make this object "clickable"? Let's step back a bit and think about the [url]..[/url] and [/url=..]..[/url] tags. Let's say we want to create a hyperlink to the CameraLabs site. Just surrounding the URL with [url]..[/url] does the trick of course - http://www.cameralabs.com/
- but for more complicated URLs this rapidly becomes unreadable. To get a readable hyperlink move the actual URL address inside the first tag, modified to include an '=' sign (the only trick here is that the URL must not
contain spaces so if it does then replace each space with %20
). So now we get Camera Labs
. The descriptive text between the [url=..]..[/url] tags can be whatever you want. In fact you can even replace it entirely with an image bracketed with the [img]..[/img] tags as above like so:
For this "clickable" image the URL I used in the "[url]tag was simply the address of your "Santa Cruz 163" page ([url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/14355823@N02/2119467245/[/url]) plucked from my browser's address bar.
Once you've got the hang of this then as a reward (
) click on the Edit button to see how to do this:
Yet another layer of complication, I know, but provided the right-hand edge of the image stays within the normal forum width I think it can help frame a photo. Good luck!
Gorgeous picture, by the way.
