How to “link” pictures from other sites

Please post your pictures that you take on FIBC. We have lots of room for you to do this and it makes the pages load faster.

If you are posting a joke picture or a picture that the group might find interesting here is another way to post it in your thread.

Step one:
Go to the webpage were the image is. Right click on the picture and go down to properties
rightclick.jpg

Step two:
Find where is reads address (url) and highlight the link that starts with http. You can highlight the link by a click and hold of your mouse button and drag it across the text until the link is highlighted in blue.

Step three:
Now that the link is highlighted hold down your Ctrl and letter C button to copy the link


Step four:
Come back to FIBC and in your post look for the image button at the top of the post you are making. Click on the image button and a box will come up that say “please enter your the URL of your image”. Click on the white space in the box and then hold down your Ctrl and Letter V to paste the link

Now you have linked an image from another site and pulled it into your post.


Hope this helps

sweet, so now there will be even more red X's on the site!!!








a lot of site's don't allow hotlinking. Especially the one's with 'joke pictures' etc. However the pic will usually show up for the person who posts it due to it already being in their cache so they won't notice, but everyone else will get a red X (or nothing in FF).

Not to mention that a lot of images are indirectly displayed through a script (such as most forums including ours), so even if they do allow remote linking it won't show up because the script usualy won't execute unless it originates from the same domain.


Some people may know what will & won't work for remote linking, but chances are those people don't need instructions on how to do it.


I know you're trying to reduce disk space and bandwidth, but there's more efficient way to do it than this

Maybe there is a forum hack out there that will apply a quota to images that people upload in certain forums (jokes, around the bonfire, etc), but let others go unlimited (ie no limit to pics posted in events debriefing, carnage, etc). Or install one of those image optimizers we talked about waaay back when

thats because the other site doesn't allow hotlinking



kev, you're right that it will work sometimes if you're careful enough to know which sites allow hotlinking or not

how can you tell if it allowed or not Aaron?? I had it up for months before the message showed up, so I presumed it was this site not the hosts. But I guess i was wrong???

you can't really tell for sure. Usually the joke type sites don't allow it because they want you to come visit their site and in turn view their ads which make them money.

the only real way to tell is to post it, and then clear your cache and refresh the post and see if it shows up or not.


other times they will allow it at first, but then they might notice in their logs after a while that that pic is getting downloaded huge number of times, and then either delete the pic or replace it with something else.

I know in the past when I've run other websites and noticed people hotlinking my images I'll replace the pic with something nasty along the lines of the Most Discusting pic thread so people will all of a sudden get some nasty tubgirl pic on their site instead of the image they had origianlly wanted. That'll teach those bastards for stealing my bandwidth

thats why I personally avoid hotlinking. If its not something that needs to be on the fibc server then I'll just throw it on my shaw webspace (where I know it is allowed) and hotlink it from there.

But please remember to post your pictures here. We have TONS of room for you to do this and will make the pages load faster. It will also allow old post to still have pictures in them as there will be no need to delete them where you are hosting your pictures.

This was just another way to post your pics. I do it all the time and it works well
