I tried adding the icons, but they didn't show up. The url was seen instead.
What can be done that will show the icons on the forum and not the url?
Thanks.

did you use the correct url, that ended in something like .jpg?

Ive used this before and it worked fine just by placing the url in there

Posting consecutively is not tolerated unless separated by 24 hours since the last post. In future, please use the edit button to avoid receiving warnings. Wink

You don't need to use any BBCodes or HTML in the URL, simply paste the direct link to the image and it should work.

That's why it didn't work then

You need to use the one that looks like this: https://i22.servimg.com/../../../../../../010.jpg

I think you used the BB Code, which wont work in this instance

Also what lisa said is right you dont have the right URL to place on the boxk best thing to do is uplaod the images tp you pc/laptop then use tinypic.com to get a free host to host your url you must use the direct link one

Hope i was of help to you
