As billb says sorry for your post being ignored Sad

To post a link you just need to enclose it with the correct BBCode which the forum will interpret and display it as a link

Above the reply area are the buttons to add the standard codes, you'd want the URL one.



Or you can type it yourself using the format {URL}your link{/url} but using square brackets instead of curly. it will look like this once displayed - www.google.com
You can also do it as {url=http://www.google.com}Go to Google{/url} to remove the actual link and replace it with what ever text you want. It will end up looking like this Go to Google


As for posting pictures it's the same format but using the {img} tags. You also need to host the pictures somewhere that will let you link to them, photobucket is obviously blocking you doing that.

Try Skitch which lets you grab and annotate your images as well as offering somewhere to host them. The image I posted above was done using skitch
