Garmanma My good man,

Please excuse my weak moment of b_tc_ing and moaning, I'm, have a sore wrist, and tired eyes, . .

but I would have to decide from here which is the URL

This is from the web site you referred me to, I know you mean well, and it is very considerate of you, but, . . . ?

Abbreviation of Uniform Resource Locator, the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web.

The first part of the address is called a protocol identifier and it indicates what protocol to use, and the second part is called a resource name and it specifies the IP address or the domain name where the resource is located. The protocol identifier and the resource name are separated by a colon and two forward slashes.

For example, the two URLs below point to two different files at the domain pcwebopedia.com. The first specifies an executable file that should be fetched using the FTP protocol; the second specifies a Web page that should be fetched using the HTTP protocol:
# ftp://www.pcwebopedia.com/stuff.exe
# http://www.pcwebopedia.com/index.html

I still don't know which one to post in a forum that is asking for the image URL, and there is no
preview at this forum.

Sorry, I looked it up in a Webster's New World Dictionary of Computer terms, before I posted,

I'm not entirely lazy but I am spent.

I apologize, but I still don't know which one it is ?

Hey I know there are no dumb questions, but they are easier to answer !

I mean at Photo Bucket there is the direct link, . . . the Image Code

and the HTML.

So, I guess that the HTML is the URL ? correct ?

Anybody ?

I just joined this forum there is no preview, it is a military forum,

I'd hate to look really dumb !

Ok! , I'm really dumb !

Just don't jump own me !

For security reasons we do not utilize HTML Links on this forum. You would use the [img] version url from photobucket. It's the bottom one of the four under each image in your gallery.

Thanks animal,
I felt ridiculous asking, and don't understand the reasoning in your answer, but don't bother yourself, I'll get it through trial and error.

Let me see if I can explain. I feel it's helpful for you to understand in this instance. HTML can be used in malicious ways. With this in mind, and for the security of our members. We have disabled the use of HTML formatting of links for our website.

Since HTML is not a format compatible here, do not use that link in your photobucket account when adding links. You may be able to use it elsewhere however. For this forum, use the bottom link in your photobucket account that says IMG Code It's the fourth and last one in the list of, Email & IM, Direct Link, HTML Code and IMG Code, that are underneath each image in you photobucket account.

Does that make a little more sense now?

Which is the URL


And to further answer... they are all URLs. All of them are valid addresses. Which you use in any given circumstance depends on the medium you are using to communicate.

I basically have an Idea of what Animal is talking about a security issue, that somehow HTML,

provides the kind of information, (and I am assuming it is from the properties info, that can be obtained from the image posted), that BC would like not to use. OK if that is not altogether correct, that's OK I'll review it with a little research.

But for now, I think that Galadriel, has pretty much answered my question, . . .

the site I arrived is a Military related site, where I was going to post some, search and rescue aviation information's, there are so many cookies there I'm not sure I want to be there any more,

I have issues here I need to deal with first.

But, they ask in the image insertion to paste the URL, I would have easily done that, excepting there was no Preview function there and I decided I better get the right one first.

I think I recall posting images that we not the regular Image URL as you have described for use here, so I'm not sure what they use, I'll just have to try to contact them and find out.
I have a little more knowledge now !

Thanks much for your time and efforts.
