Your url's are incomplete -- the first half is missing. You can copy the entire url, even if only part of it is visible. Begin at the end of the url and highlight what you can see, then -- still holding down the mouse button -- hover over the first part you can see until it scrolls to the right (or down, depending on the shape of the window) and you can see the http:// at the beginning of the url -- you'll need that part too.

Here's the FAQ on picture-posting:
http://faq.gardenweb.com/faq/lists/pepper/2002072150000611.html

I use a free Firefox add-on called BBCodeXtra to post multiple links, format text, etc. [Of the three sets of codes included in the add-on, this forum uses the xhtml set.] I only know about this because someone posted it on the Tomato forum; my computer skills are only adequate.

There are similar programs (sometimes called macros) for IE, but I don't know them.

If I'm dissecting this correctly, my add-on would put this before your url:
[a href="

after the url, this would appear:
"]

then your url would be repeated

and after that:
[/a]

But in all cases, where I used [ above, it would say <

And where I used ] above, it would say >

I can't use the < and > in the examples above, because the site's software tries to convert that to a link (even if it doesn't work as a link).

Where the url is repeated a second time, you can put instead a name for the url. For example, I could give my link above the name "Picture-posting FAQ" and it would look like this:

Picture-posting FAQ

Same exact link, but this one has a name instead of showing the url.

Good luck!

When you click the "Preview Message" button, your links should show up as actual links, and you can click on them to make sure they work before clicking on "Submit Message."
