No pictures here my fella, try again!!!

You need to do a -- on either sides of the image label from your hosting page.
(You can't just host a picture you have on your computer, you need to post it on a hosting page on the internet first!!)

Good luck, Paulo.

I keep trying to upload more pictures, i go to post reply, and go to manage attachments, it has a browse option so i click on it and find any picture of my caddy, i crop it so it fits within the size limits, and open it, then click upload but after that nothing happens, I have a dial- up connection and its super annoying i think this has some part in the delay, i will see what else i can do though. See ya.

For instancem you upload your pic to imageshack, photosite, etc

you copy the link and place it between the tags


for instance the pic you linked to above

{img}http://www.stripethree.net/images/800x600/IMG_3414.jpg{/img}

replacing the {}s with []s - note i did this so you could see

and WALA! here it is!

http://www.stripethree.net/images/800x600/IMG_3414.jpg

You can also, to help out those folks with dialup, to prevent them waiting for the pic to load...you can set it to a clickable preview thumbnail using the tags

like this

removed because no use in having a double pic here EDIT: looks like the tag does not work in this forum, it does in many vbulletin forums, i think imageshack has a postable clickable thumbnail you can use

Good Luck!

BTW, nice Caddy you got there! :thumbs_up

Boy oh Boy. Thanck you for all your help it makes sense to me now, I will definitly find a sit e to post them on or eventually get the images small enough to post directly to here. At least I got one on here. Thanx again.

These don't seem to always show on my computer, but other people say they can see them. If I'm being a total idiot, let me know. I will learn eventually.

Howdy, my truck is a 1982 standard transmission 1.6L diesel. The front bumper is from a ford escort, I had to cut 6 inches out of the middle because it was to wide, welded some steel to the original bumper braces so its practical. The truck had the little chrome bumpers on both sides, once I get a picture of the back youll see its gone to, I welded together a one off roll pan out of steel. The grill is the original with a face I cut out of a really light strong plastic, and put some running lights in it. I have silver star headlights so they have the blueish tint to them. My tail lights are from a full size cherolet pickup. I had to do some major trial and erroe with the cutting of the back corner. Thought it would be diffrent because I have yet to see another Caddy with custom tail lights. My exaust goes straight back with the exception of a glasspack muffler, the tip is custom to. I welded a cherrybomb to a kenworth tip so theres a small pipe next to a huge one. The sound is amazing, I love going throught town and hearing it echo of the building walls. I have the GTI wheels on it with yokohama rubber. I am going to take it down to the local dragstrip sunday to see what it will do, I doubt i will impress anyone. Ill post the times if they arent to embarrasing, I have a all audiobahn system with 2 three inchers in the dash and 2 6x9's behind the seats, havent had time to see what I can do about a subwoofer, maybe someday. Currently I am working on putting new struts in and eventually want to flip the axle. Thats about it for now. thanx for your intrest.

Problem is your trying to post the webpage you pic is on and not the image itself. Myspace does not allow direct linking to pics so host them somewhere else. They PhotoBucket I think thats what its called. I am not totaly sure since I host all mine on my personal webserver.

1st thing the tag at the end needs to be

next is you have to post to the item on the page or it just come out as a like to the page

Sorry bout that, i thought i did it right i dont know what the deal is. My computer might as well be handicaped, they werent very good pictures anyway, right now I cant drive my tuck do to my linkages desided to poop out on me last thursday and I havent found replacements or the time to fix it. I went to misssing linkz.com . but it doesnt look like an official site, its just a list of stuff. Anyone know if thats it. My main source of income(parents) said it doesnt look official enough and theres no phone number.
