From http://www.bois-blanc.com/phpBB2/faq.php?mode=bbcode
This is what it says:

What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. Whether you can actually use BBCode in your posts on the forum is determined by the administrator. In addition you can disable BBCode on a per post basis via the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML, tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. Depending on the template you are using you may find adding BBCode to your posts is made much easier through a clickable interface above the message area on the posting form. Even with this you may find the following guide useful.

Simply put, it enables you to make fancy replies, with colored fonts, or larger text or insert

pictures. Mr. Green Sorry, I couldn't resist.

No, you're not being a pest at all. You are correct. In order to insert a picture in your message, the picture must be available on the internet. The picture that doesn't show up in the above post was hosted on one of my other sites, I forgot to transfer the picture when I changed servers. Sad Most people are allotted a certain amount of web space through their internet service provider (ISP). For example, if Charter is your ISP, you should have space available at www.charter.com/~Al'sOtherSister, or something like that. Check with your ISP to find out what the details are. If that's not the case, there are some free sites where you can store photos for remote linking, which is what you would be doing here (remote linking). I'll look around tomorrow and see if I can find the site I'm thinking of.

You are correct, apparently I do get some space here at Charter. Thankx Rob! When I can fit it in to my busy shedule I will set it up.

Well, the site I was thinking about doesn't allow remote linking either. FYI the site was 50megs.com . I also know that GeoCities doesn't allow remote linking.
