Hi Dave(scouse)

To add a smiley when you post a reply click on the smiley button on theFormat: row and copy the code at the side of the smiley that you want from the window that pops up. Dont forget to include the square brackets as well or it wont show. They are on your keyboard 4th row up 12th and 13th from the left.

Another way of doing it is to copy and paste the bit of code for the smiley into your post. I had trouble at first being a newbie but have now got the hang of it
still can't compete with Dave, Peter and Trogg though

Hi everyone,

The post is here http://www.maggotdrowning.com/forums/threads/111

What you find though when you try to link up to external site's images is that sometimes they do not allow linking to work in order to stop other sites from 'pinching' their bandwidth. Some others especially if hosted on free-space run out of bandwidth if popular which in turn stops the images from showing.
The ones you're on about Dave should work on here but don't for some reason so I can only think its because of the above.

Dave


Hrm, half the images on that post have stopped working now

Right the task is to find a smiley supplier that works ... hey ho orf to work we go lol

Scouse,
Sorry. i cheated by applying it to my site thus removing the smiley site bandwith. I think the big boss was talking about a system in the maggotdrowners site to allow the application of images. This arrose as my earlier attempts on fishery line were sad and worthless, or should i say workless!! Any news on that one red leader??

Cyp.

Okay Red Leader to Wanton Shoal, are you receiving


I've had a look at the site that you're on about and it appears to be a sub-domain which is a site address that uses part of a domain ie http://maggotdrowning.com is a domain, a sub could be http://you.maggotdrowning.com (dont click the links! gawd theres always one
) The chances are the server that it is hosted on doesn't allow links to content on the server such as images. This is usually the case to stop people from using their bandwidth.
BUT .... always up for a challenge,,, lets see what I can do
give me a day,,, Dave

Testing

OK Trev when you go to the site mate right click on the pic of the smilie you want to post on here.

Go down to the bottom & it will say properties, left click on that & it will show you the true URL of the pic.
Copy that & come back here then click on the IMG button on your reply box & paste the URL in between the tags.

I've done it twice now one above (the afro) & the one below

Haha, Just found the reason why the links for the images don't work, they were on a subdomain and the hosting was free but has closed its doors leaving the following message:

Due to serious abuse of my hospitality, all domain hosting
services have been terminated. It's sad, because I enjoyed
doing it, but there were too many people who thought the
rules applied to everyone but them. I may, if I really like
your site, host you. If you think I will really like your
site, feel free to send me the URL using the form below.


The images looked to have been linked to through them resulting in broken links.
