That is correct. It is completly made from scratch, at this stage.
EDIT!!!
Just fit the link of the image between what is mentioned in the "FORUM CODE" img link /img


Sven is talking about the [img] / [/img] tags that are loaded on the system. I just went through the configuration on the system and enabled images in posts about three-four days ago. This was not a recommended addition because it allows for alot of malicious posts. We will leave the images enabled until someone pushes it too far, and then will be forced to turn them back off. I wish everyone luck, and if you want images in posts, don't link to porn images [}:)].

Anyway, the new tags allow people to include images in their signatures such like mine and SDS Mike's. I think HUSSRAINBOW has one, too although it's a little large... We would like to keep images in signatures no taller than 100px and no wider than 500px. This keeps the message lengths down to a dull roar when everyone is posting with their new 'signatures'.

You can use them just like this:
[IMG]http://servername.com/pathto/filename.jpg[/IMG]

To make the image a link, use like this:
[URL="http://servername.com/pathto/link][IMG]http://servername.com/pathto/filename.jpg[/IMG][/URL]


For more help in the [img] / [/img] tags, click the Forum Code  link next to the editor window while you are posting a message. If you are trying to learn how to use the tags, be sure to test in the Testing Forum.

PLEASE NOTE: If you link to images from another website, you should (out of respect alone) make sure you give credit to the original author of the image if it is not your own (or a website where it came from).

Cool feature, I've been noticing the difference here since it was enabled. Only issue that I have seen so far is that the pages are a bit slower to load here on my dialup connection. Guess that's another reason to upgrade to DSL.[:D]

Now a couple of questions:

1. Is it safe to say that this feature can be used to link to video files in additon to still photo files?

2. Can this feature be used to link to an audio file?

3. Are there any safeguards in place to prevent this feature from being a conduit to transmit a virus or worm?

I'm not trying to give anyone ideas on how to abuse the feature, but just trying to see what can and cannot be done, so I'm not surprised when someone does something new with the feature. (Kinda like that ringing phone ad from the old board -- it had a lot of us scratching our heads, if you remember it.[;)])

The only supported image types for the IMG tags are JPG, GIF, & BMP. If somebody wishes to link to videos, they should use the URL tag, but this will not allow for streaming media links right in the message. To be quite honest, with the number of video types, codecs, etc -- it's better that we do not support it in the 'live view' or 'preview' fashions directly inline with the messages. As for virus code, if you ever click on a link on this forum, and it asks you if you would like to open/save something, be leary of it. We do not distribute any kind of code on this site, nor anything you can really download. If a link is prompting you to download something, be leary of it, and report it to us (either PM me or email forum@carnivalwarehouse.com . ** PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME MOVIE FILES THAT ARE LINKED WILL REQUIRE DOWNLOAD TO YOUR COMPUTER. THIS IS AN EXCEPTION TO THE MOVIE RULE, so no reporting Pinetars movies as virii!!!. If you're afraid of the file, scan it with a virus scanner before you open it. Better safe than sorry. Because we don't support file storage & downloading, the risk of a virus is much less, although not 100% eliminated. 90% of all virus infections are caused by people downloading something without discretion, or handling infected email (both while running a machine without virus protection, or without updated virus data files.

I had to add the (") after the link to get it to work after following your example:

This example is linked to a movie; no, it is not about bubs. Tell me if it streams or not, that is a feature I should be able to control.

In order to use an image tag, do you have to use a link from a web page? Can you use a picture or image of your own? If so how do you
go about posting it ?

The image to be linked to has to be on the internet, usually the easiest way to do it is to upload the image to your webspace that comes with your internet service.
