    I know how to post a link. (I learned that on this very forum!:))

    I've seen where other posters have a link that is part of their post. You don't have to click on it, it is open when you scroll down to their post. How do you do that?

    For instance if I wanted this picture of this :eek:beautiful pistol:eek: to be open as part of my post how would I do that?

    Thanks!

    Other than copying the picture, and putting it on your own picture hosting site, then posting here..........

    It is called hot linking. Some sites do not like/allow you to do it.

    First "right" click "on" the picture.
    A box should pop up, last choice being....properties....click that.
    Another box will pop up with.....location....on it.
    Highlight and copy that line, make sure you get the whole thing.
    Bring that line here, and paste as an image.
    Repeat for each picture.

    Higher ups will spank me if I did wrong here. ;):eek:
