You should not have pressed enter after pasting it, make sure the [/img] comes right after the url :wink:

And I think it has to start with http://www. or something like that

Look at Laz's point 2 :wink:

The wee red cross signifies the image can't be found, does not exist on that location, so you must've used the wrong url then, I guess...

It can also mean that you're trying to direct link from a website that has disallowed that option. (If that link doesn't give a helpful definition you can always do a simple google search yourself.)

Sorry; I only know this because I come from an online pixel graphics "community" that basically lists direct linking (mainly from small sites) as a cardinal sin. A lot of well-known sites on the internet have disallowed direct linking because of the bandwidth issues. For example, pictures on a Geocities account--at least on geocities.com accounts--cannot be direct linked to.

Yup, I'll go back to lurking now. :D

How would I hide a URL behind a word, eg; "clicky" or "Here"?.

alternatively, get a Photobucket account, copy and paste the images to your HD and upload them from there :D
