You can make a custom block widget and either add it to your portal or just as a widget on the forum itself.

You can do this simply :

Admin Panel >

Modules tab >

Forum Widgets Management >

Scroll down a bit and select Create A Custom Block. When the page comes up, name both Title Tables as "Picture Of The Week", then paste the picture's image code into the description. Save the new settings. >

Navigate back to Forum Widgets Management. Then, scroll down and click Personal Widgets, find your "Picture Of The Week" widget, and drag it up to the blue-outlined Forum Widgets Display box (you can select what side of the forum you want the widget to appear on). Save the new settings.



You use these steps everytime you make a new widget to appear on your forum/portal.

Hope I helped,

You got it to work (as I can see on your forum), but you should just take the test off and add the real picture lol. It should work fine.

...but when they click the link a new browser window opens displaying the linked page inside. Here's the code...

<p>
Visit <a href="http://www.fontstuff.com" target="_blank">Fontstuff</a> today!
</p>
The addition of the TARGET attribute to a hyperlink lets you dictate where the linked page opens. To open a new page I have used target="_blank" but there are others...

target="_blank" Opens the linked page in a new window.

target="_self" Opens the linked page in the same window. This is the default for ordinary pages and doesn't need to be specified. It has a use when working with frames.

target="_parent" Opens the linked page in the parent frame in a frames page.

target="_top" Opens the linked page in a full (i.e. top level) window when used in frames pages. This one is useful for letting a linked page 'break out' of a frame.

i think you would have to use target blank for new window.
Code:
<a href="your URL here" target="_blank"><img src="URL of image"></a>
