    Image Question

    Wasn't sure where to put this and it's more of a curiosity than a need.

    I'm looking for the BB code to use one link to an image, but specify the image size so it's small enough for the forum. I want to make it a link also, that way if you click on the image you will go to the full size image.

    What I'm trying to accomplish is when you see an add with a photo and you click the photo for a larger view.

    Thanks,

    Not sure this is what your looking for...

    Place the large image after the first "http" then the thumbnail image in the second "http"




    PHP Code:
    [URL=http://xxxxxxxx.jpg][IMG]http://xxxxxxxxxx.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    Never thought of that, I'll have to try it. It should accomplish what I was trying to do.

    I'm really trying to get away without having to upload 2 separate images. In html you can link to a single image, but define the size the image with the code to display at a certain size. Once clicked, you go to the original sized image.

    Thanks, very inventive.

    Or you could just use the DefensiveCarry Gallery , upload your photos there, and use the "linked thumbnail" option, like this:

    I seem to have it working now (post #4)

    image cache can mess up what I can see and what others can or can't

    is it working for you?

    This is what I'm talking about.

    When you first go to the page, the image is (should be) 50% of your screen. When you click on the image it takes you to the full size image. (Beware- large file)

    I don't think we can use HTML on the forum too much risk.

    In this example did you have to upload 2 separate images? This is exactly what I want to do, but only upload one image.

    Geez, had to pull out the book to remember how to do my example...

    Yes, the code worked fine in post #4, I hadn't thought of that method. Other than having to use 2 images it's exactly what I was trying to do. I was just trying to avoid resizing the image and uploading twice.

    Thanks for the ideas!
