How to post an ImageShack upload properly in PCA

I sometimes post an Imageshack upload to PCA but as there is NO preview feature I can't see if it comes out okay before posting.
It normally comes out as:


[URL=click here][IMG]click here[/IMG][/URL]


so I will try another method:


[url=click here][img=click here][/url]


p.s. I don't know whether the second method works until posting it so I will just have to wait and see!

Both methods work but leave a mess on the reply screen :0(


Any advice on doing it properly please?
Thanks.

CurlyWhirly,

when you post an image, are you clicking on the thumbnail, to see the full size image.?

You don't need the [IMG] and [URL] bits

CurlyWhirly,

that last link was just created by, copying your url, in your first link.

I usually pick the 'Thumbnail for forums (1)' or 'Thumbnail for forums (2)' as the other option is for websites.
I haven't tried that one so I don't know if it will work properly or not.
Cheers.

Thanks VoG™ & Joe R


As I now know that I *don't* need the [IMG] and [URL] bits, I will leave them out in future to avoid posting a mess!
Thanks to you both. :0)
