I still can not figure out how to get my forum avatar to work...and have fiddled for like an!

The avatar is different than post in a thread.

profile pics need a link like this

so for photobucket copy the HTML code

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Then paste it in a text editor.  Then remove the unwanted bits. saving only the section after img src="
leaving you with

The rest of the forum needs [] IMG tags

Re: How to post a Picture - FLICKR USERS

i inquired with a MAC user friend and  was suggested[/b]

As a Flickr user, I hope anyone else that uses them knows their guideline for posting pictures outside of that site.  If you "physically show" your pictures from Flickr on a site (such as this one), your picture must serve as a link back to your photostream/set.

To do this, use this command  - [*url=XXXX][*img]####[/img][/url]
1) Remove the "*".  They were placed so you could see the full command.  Note the use of brackets, not parenthesis.
2) XXXX=photostream url  (I tend to actually use the one from a specific photoset)
3)####=photo url <--- To obtain this, make sure you're logged into Flickr and looking at one of your pictures.  Above the photo, one of the options listed is "All Sizes".  Whichever size you click on and the photo reappears in that new size, the url will appear underneath the photo.  Each size has its own url.

Click on the photo below to see what I mean.  The photo url I used is for my "large" (not original) photo.

You should have been directed to my photoset from the 2009 Central Coast Renaissance Festival, rather than my entire photostream.
