Hey Guys,

First of all, please excuse my ignorance in all things bb. I'm sure these are questions that get asked all the time. As a matter of fact, if there is a good general FAQ ( i noticed yours was listed as "coming soon") somewhere that you can point me to I'd really appreciate it. Otherwise you'll just have to field my newbie questions.

I'm wondering about the posting of images. I notice that a lot of people just simply add links ( i.e. "http://mywebsite/mypic") where as others are some sort of attachment. Sometimes these attachments just load up in the browser while other times you have to click and download (they've got the little paperclip icon). I'd like to attach a pic so the user doesn't have to click, but how is that done? Is it simply an <IMG SRC> tag around an absolute URL? Can you put html directly into the Message textbox, or do you use the vB code thingie? I noticed at the bottom of the page the Forum rules note that HTML code is off. Is that significant in this case?

Thanks for your help....and your patience.
