I have some menu icons. I made a folder in default theme images called menu_icons, install a bunch of images. I have tried a few different ways of getting then into the forum boards, they do not show, just the link.

Any idea to what I doing wrong.

Sounds like you're not using the correct url to the images.

EDIT: Right-click on the link and click "View Image Info". What do you see? Is it the correct url?

Doesn't show any link.

Don't forget these images are in the cPanel database.

It should look something like this: https://seniorforums.net/Themes/default/images/ambulance.png  when I do this the link shows and not the image.

Steve got it figured out: <img src="https://yourforumurl/Themes/default/images/menu_icons/ambulance.png"/a> I left the a in for it to show.

Dam you, I knew you'd say that. I don't know about you Steve, but I'll forgive you, only because you were gased.
