TB HTML problem

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Mike Flynn, Mar 2, 2005.


  1. Can anyone help me switch my HTML back on please?

    EG when I do this:

    <img src=http://www.munkio.com/music/basses%20&%20ting/webready/fretless_stand_sun450.jpg>

    - it doesn't pick up the code -

    PM me and and I'll delete this thread as soon as I'm sorted - thanks lovely people

    The IMG tags are working, at least when I load the file onto my photobucket account.

    Have you published any other images from the basses%20&%20ting directory? Either the spaces (%20) or the ampersand character could be throwing the codes used on this board off when they try to show the image.

    Try moving it to a different location or renaming the directory basses-and-ting or something similar (being careful, of course, about other HTML links you have got working).

  6. Yeah - that's the fella - how did you do that - IMG /IMG either side of the URL?

    And Wulf - yes - plenty and they all work on my website - http://www.munkio.com/jeffchapman/brighton_bass_gallery.html - which is why I don't understand why TB doesn't pick them up - I am hosting the images after all...

    Yup, I used the IMG tags (with square brackets).

    These tags aren't html, they're integral to the board. The board software must automatically convert them to html. Your ampersands must, as wulf suggested, be upsetting this.

    Either the ampersands or the %20 (space) characters - as Mr Lloyd said, it's not HTML, so the rules might be different!
