|How to use Images and Links|
An image can be used as a forum background, or in a forum's
header, description, or footer. You may place your own Image-links or
clickable-Links right into your forum. Additionally, if a forum is
configured for it, users may place images and links within their messages.
We provide three options to dis/allow HTML in a message's subject, author
name, and body.
To use images or make links requires a bit of knowledge of HTML (the
language webpages are made of). If you are wishing to link to a certain
location, you need to know the destination URL (address) - VoyForum's
homepage is at:
Images are also located at URLs. To place an image somewhere you must
have that image available on "the web" and know the URL directly to the
image file. For instance, VoyForums has a logo at
Now for the actual HTML...
Now, if you wished to provide a link to the VoyForums homepage, you would
type the following HTML where you wished the link to be:
- Forum background image: Just place the URL to your
image directly into the option
Display Settings -> URL to Background Image - VoyForums
handles the rest of the work for you.
- "Header image" (at the top of your forum):
Just like the background, above, but use the option
Display Settings -> URL to Header Image instead.
- Images in custom locations:
To place images in your forum's Header, Description, Footer, or within
messages, use an <IMG> tag (image tag) placed right within your
text, like this:
- Links in custom locations:
To make a clickable link, use an <A> tag (anchor tag) anywhere
you wish the link to be placed, like:
<A href="url_here">Click here to visit my URL</A>.
Please note that you must close the <A> with a closing
(The text "Click here..." can be replaced with any text you wish to be
clickable -- you may even place an IMG tag there to have a clickable
- E-mail links:
An e-mail link is just like a normal link, but the URL is different.
A URL to send an e-mail looks like:
Thus, a link to send mail looks something like this:
<A href="mailto:email@example.com">E-mail me</A>.
<A href="http://www.voy.com/">VoyForums Homepage</A>
To put the VoyForums small logo somewhere, you would use:
<IMG border=0 src="http://www.voy.com/images/logocol.little.gif">
(The "border=0" removes the border placed around the image, you can put
any number there for the width of the border.)
If you wished, you could have an image be the clickable portion
of the link by placing the IMG tag within the Anchor tag like this:
<A href="http://www.voy.com/"><IMG border=0 src="http://www.voy.com/images/logocol.little.gif"></A>
