The premises behind a "clickable" link in a phpBB post is comprised of two parts:

1. A "Target URL" --> What document will open when a link is clicked; and
2. A "Target Mask" --> Something "pretty" to cover the the "http://www..." link.


CREATING A CLICKABLE TEXT LINK

[URL = http://www/Image_FileName.JPG ] A Link to My Picture File [/URL]
... The above is of the format [URL = Target URL ] Target Mask [/URL]
... There are blank spaces in the prior which would be omitted when creating a clickable link of course.


CREATING A CLICKABLE THUMBNAIL LINK

This assumes that on your host server you have these two files: "Image_FileName.JPG" and "TN_ImageFileName.JPG".
... "Image_FileName.JPG" -> Your "full size image", example: 800 x 600 DPI
... "TN_ImageFileName.JPG" -> Your "thumbnail image", example: 96 x 96 DPI


So adapting from the clickable TEXT link code, we replace the text "mask" we created for the image URL which was "A Link to My Picture File" with a thumbnail "mask".

[URL = http://www/Image_FileName.JPG ] [IMG] http://www/TN_ImageFileName.JPG [/IMG] [/URL]

So, we replaced clickable text "A Link to My Picture File" link to the full size image... with a clickable thumbnail to the full size image.

Please note... if you want your thumbnails to appear in a "table" (x-amount of thumbnails in one row) instead of a "column" (one thumbnail, new line, one thumbnail, new line, etc.) you need to paste your thumbnail code lines into a text file, turn OFF "Text Wrap", then hit [END] key, then [DEL] key, the [SPACE BAR], and repeat... to eliminate the CRxLF (Carriage Return x Line Feed) between thumbnails so it appears your code is one long continuous block of text.

The easiest thing is to use a photo hosting service like the one in my sig that has preformated bbcode to do just this.

The problem is the current verison of this site has clickable thumbnails broken on SOME styles. There is no fix to this except we are in the very final cosmetic stages of an extensve rewrite of the site (2+ months in the works) and when we go live with this rewrite this issue will be fixed.

Thanks BrownBullhead & fishfreek I’m pretty adapt at using html/BBcode and the way BrownBullhead explained it makes perfect sense now. I was just hoping there was an easier way ie: the [thumbnail] code that would automatically resize the image for me. I guess that would be a bit trickier. I’ll just use photobucket or photolocker to do the code for me
