Ok here is where I show my lack of pc talent. On our profile page it says that you can use a URL. Swell. How do I do that? I have a pic I want to put on my personal page. All of my pics are on photobucket. I see direct link letters, HTML letters IMG code's. Is there an easy explanation for how to do this or should I just live with no pic on my persoanl page ? MW

I'm obviously not an expert here yet, but i don't see an option for inserting an image on your profile.  It does not seem to be either BB code or HTML enabled.  Where do you see "direct link letters, HTML letters IMG code's" when editing your profile?

I even tried just pasting BB code and HTML in to my interests block, but it just displays the actual code and not the link or image.

When editing your profile you can select a personal photo by entering a URL of an image.  I've uploaded the design for my nickel fronts.  The same image I have on my GC profile.  This would appear to be the only image you can display an image on your profile page, here.

Go to PhotoBucket and right click the image you want and select properties. You should see the URL for that image. Highlight the URL, right click and select Copy.

No go to the Navicache Forums (you must be logged in) and click on 'Your Control Panel' in the menu below the navicache logo. In your control panel select 'Personal Info' and then 'Edit Your Profile'. Next scroll to the box titled 'You may enter a URL for a personal photograph' and right-click. Select 'Past' and save your changes.

Of course if you know the URL you can simply type it in the same box.

This image will then appear in both your Forum profile page and your MyNavicache Home page.

I am a little more confused with your question. I see you have a 'Don't Tread On Me' image in your profile now.
Did you figure out how to do this or is that not the image you wanted?

By the way, I changed the title of the topic to more appropriately match the questions.

I think he means placing pictures on some of the profile areas with the HTML Tag
Code Sample
<img src="image1.jpg">
so you can add things like your local Geo Org. such as:

That would be a no if that is the case. Profile is for one image (code placed in the box indicated) which is generally meant to be your photo so that other cachers can get to know what everyone looks like.

I was actually replying to the good Mother Wolf.  My question was in reply to what she was saying she saw.  I didn't see the same thing and was wondering what area she was referring to.

I'm sorry I confused anyone. I was refering to looking at my photobucket page. When I went on my NC profile page to add an avatar for the threads there was a place to put in or cut & paste the different codes: HTML, code, something else but on the NC location none of those worked.
I do have an avatar up for the threads now so thats cool. Sorry for the confusion. It happens when I think faster than I type. MW
