Default Answered: Hotlinking Question

Okay, I know I already asked this before, but then I thought I found the answer on my own, so I closed the thread, but right before I closed it, I didn't see that someone replied about it. So now, I'm really confused about Hotlinking.
I've read the guide and stuff, and I'm still a little confused at this part.

Super simply put... Hot Linking to media files = bad... Linking to pages = good ;-)

And so by that, I was assuming that it meant that it was okay to post links to a certain page, for example, a pair of shoes at Target. Then people click on that link and it takes them to the actual page on Target's website. But then somebody said that that was not correct, so I'm kinda confused...

You may post links to another page as long as it's appropriate for WI. You may not copy and paste graphics from other sites

A link is only the url address which when clicked will take you to the site.

No not exactly. It is saying that if you like make a doll, click and drag it to another window, and copy it from there to insert it here, it isn't the best thing to do. It is better to either:

1. Saving it to your PC and then adding it here. (not being full size but that can change)
2. Link back to the page. (then others will know and make their own dolls )



Hope this clarifies it. If you have a question on how to change an attachment to full size ask me in a VM and I can answer it!

Oh yes totally. you could do this it works:
  1. Save the pics to your desktop/laptop
  2. Add them as attachments
  3. PREVIEW your post.
  4. Click the tiny image in the PREVIEW and copy that link.
  5. Click the icon to add a URL picture; paste it there ans OKAY it.
  6. It should be full size and fine!
  7. Make sure you don't delete the attachment though, or the bigger one won't work.



Here is the attachment:
Attachment 207129





Here is the picture:
Click the image to open in full size.
