View Full Version : Problem when linking an image to a thread!?

06 June 2003, 05:00 PM
Everytime I link and image that is hosted by an outside server, the image comes up broken?!?!?

The file size is fairly small for an image, still being able to keep the detail. Usually around 30k.

Can anyone shed some sight to the blind?

What server? If its geocities or something like that, they don't allow hotlinking. You have to paste the link as just text and people will copy and paste it to the address bar.

Ya it is geocities... What about a personal server? My DNS needs to be tweaked so my domain points to the IP, but my friend who runs the server is taking forever.

So the quetions is, a link with a IP adress instead won't work as a hotlink?

Heheh im no newb =) Unless you can't post Gif's, which i would find very odd.

And yes, the only thing on that IP adress is my index.htm which has the GIf included.
