Hi All

Is it possible to add links to photos on a hosting site, such as Photobucket?

Thanks

Malcolm

Malcom hi,

I am not a member of Photo Bucket so not sure if it will work on that particular  site but tried this method on a photo that exists on my site and worked OK.

Right click on the photo
Select open link in new window
Left click to select the URL/address at the top (should go blue)
Example = http://www.mynorfolkbroadsboating.co.uk/Lovely%20Girl.jpg
Right hand mouse and copy.
Paste the URL into your post.

Hope this works for you.




Kind Regards
Alan...

Yes you can.  There is an add hyperlink button on the toolbar.  It looks like a globe with googles.  You can give the hyperlink a short name if you want then copy and paste the link address into the next box.

I'm sure I've also just pasted a link directly into a message at some time.

Editted to add - yes I tried the direct paste method and it worked - link removed at this edit.

Hmmm...

I am not sure that fully answers the question. I know a link can be added but were you asking if HTML can be added in the reply?

I am going to try a few experiments in this reply to see what works:

first a link:

https://flic.kr/p/o4yDkY

now HTML

DSC03196

now embed a frame



Now my own bit of code:

https://flic.kr/p/o4yDkY

Now to test it

OK. So the answer is that you can add a link or a frame or embed HTML but the "img" (in triangular brackets) which works on most forums does not seem to work on here.

The image used is on Flickr by the way but I assume you could use photobucket or anything else.

The top image is just a single still, but if you hover your mouse over the lower one you should see arrows which allow you to step through all the pictures in that album (which is the Forum meet by the way).

Thinking about this a bit more, it raises a number of interesting possibilities which I will experiment with a bit more:

You can have multiple images in a single post.

It does not use as much of Richard's bandwidth which seems certain to be much faster than normal Forum pictures.

You can have a slide show in a post.

Maybe I could use this method to post images in the History Section. (This does not work at the moment)

You retain control of photographs rather than uploading them to the Forum. So, of example, if you are likely to throw your teddies out at some time in the future, you could use this method and then just delete all your pictures on the Forum when you go off in a huff.

The downside is that it relies on the picture staying on Photobucket or Flickr. If you move it, the link will fail.

I can't post the code I used as the Forum will think it is a command and will turn it into a picture. I got the code from Flickr and I expect you can do the same with Photobucket.

Further tests:

The onions were strong that year

It seemed funny at the time.

OK. The whopper picture is not a very good idea (sorry if you are viewing this on a phone).

It might be a good idea to stick to 640 x 480.

I have also tried this in the History Section and I can confirm it works.

I hope this is what you were asking for.
