    Please help the computer dunce

    Help me please! I just cannot figure out how to put images in my posts! I put the URL in img tags, but when I preview the post, only the URL shows. What am I doing wrong?

    Sally - are you storing the pictures on a website? like photobucket?
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    I click on an image in my album so I'm viewing just that image. Then I tried copying the URL from the address bar on my browser. Didn't work. Then I right clicked and clicked Properties and copied the URL of the picture itself (I think that's what it was). Still didn't work.

    Never mind. I just registered with Photobucket, and that site makes it so much easier!

    Thanks for the help, Cuzco!

    Yeah, AFAIK, Yahoo doesn't support hotlinking.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
