LONG BLOG : tip on linking to pictures without hotlinking

the jack thompson post was filled with image shack failure [the fault is imageshack, not its users]

something i was informed about should really help anyone who can't get a image to show up on forums or cblogs because of hot linking

check it out. all you have to do is put "" before the image link address. for example

bbcode example
instead of:


what that does is makes it so when ever anyone clicks on a page that has that code showing the piture, imgred servers view the picture, cache it on their servers, then continue to serve it from then on out. [well for a while, but from what i can tell, if the picture has been cleared from their cache, the link will refresh if the picture is still at the original address.] its free. sorry let me try that again its free and there is nothing more to it than putting a little extra in the address to the picture. hell it will even do thumbnails if you want to view something along that line instead. [check out their website for the explanation on that.]

so go ahead have fun, it will make the internet a little easier to manage when it comes to picture placement in blogs/forums.

enjoy! [:
