This is one of those things where I will always link a pic into a thread for the OP, when required.
It's the simple matter of changing tags when using offsite images, and sooooo easy to do.
Let's say you want to link a Snoopy pic:
Honestly, it's easier to outlink a pic, rather than download it off the webz, upload it to your ATS space, and then post the link in your post.
In this example, you clicked the "image" button above your comment box, and posted the valid URL:
That's where you get that annoying "link to external image" image, instead of the pic you wanted. If I had a nickel for everytime I saw
that......well, I just sigh.
Here's the solution:
[ img]http://a66c7b.medialib.glogster.com/media/b4/b46b7e6aab6272d6a5c2c043a6b32c629895d335f4dc977dcd27af89b80c53ea/snoopy-love.jpg[ /img]
That's the offsite link for that Snoopy image. (BTW, Valentine's day is coming up soon!)
In those brackets, the img needs to be changed to ats. Remember to change both the beginning and ending tags. It's that simple. That's all you
have to do. (remove the spaces, of course.)
The correct format is:
[ ats]http://a66c7b.medialib.glogster.com/media/b4/b46b7e6aab6272d6a5c2c043a6b32c629895d335f4dc977dcd27af89b80c53ea/snoopy-love.jpg[ /ats]
Once I remove the spaces, I get this, once again:
Summary: When posting external images, simply change the "img" tags to "ats". A very simple edit gets your images to show up in your post. It
really is that easy.
