    Does anyone now how AIM subprofiles stay inside of the profile window. Every other link opens into a new window. This would be a cool thing to be able to do so if anyone knows....

    The answer is:

    target="_self"

    For example:
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.techguy.org/" target="_self">This is the coolest site ever... only in AIM!</a>
    
    Of course, AIM doesn't really act as a very good browser -- no pics, etc. But that's how it's done.

    I had tried that and it didn't seem to work. After further investigation I realized that and html tag needed to be added before the link. Just in case anyone else has the desire to do this. Thanks for the help techguy

    Depending on your version, and how the AIM servers are feeling, sometimes you can put pics in by editing the info.htm file.
