    Hi,
    How can I link an image file from my webfiles to another site?
    I have a "pix" folder.

    By using an absolute address in your code rather than a relative one. In other words, you need to punch in <img src="http://yourserver/pix/pic.jpg">. I'll not insult your intelligence by explaining how to modify it.

    If you are trying to get an image from another server, however, remember that they may have features in place to prevent it.

    Hi Corrosive,
    Thanks for the response. That is the code (url) that I tried but it wouldn't work.
    I just solved the problem...

    Notice my image attached to my original post; I moved the pix folder into public_html and it worked.
    Thanks again,
    You were right-on. (I never linked before and put my file in the wrong place) Duh:rolleyes:
    zzz(y) Enjoy;)
