I am so Embarassed can't seem to figure out how to post images I have created or URLs to them. These are specifically maps that are being created for an upcoming series of articles based in the Dramidj.

Whenevever I try; I get - [img]map name[/img] or [url]map name[/url] in words.

Do I have add a certain .something to the image name or what?

A step by step instruction would be appreciated - If successful you all get a sneak peek at a map from the project.

I know the solution is simple and incredibly obvious, be kind commenting on my stupidity.

You need to type the complete URL of where the image is stored between the [img][/img] tags. For example, typing
Code:
[img]http://members.cox.net/dmprata/Sunndi.gif[/img]
displays this image from my personal campaign map:

You need to upload it to the internet before you can embed it in a forum. Photobucket.com and mediafire.com are both good free hosting choices.

Lets put another "dumb" question in this thread. How do you link an actual website link to a word, as in

You may find a version of that map HERE.

I'm always forgetting the correct code to do this the right way! D'oh! Embarassed
