Hi 86chvs10,

It doesn't look like the host you're currently using to host your banner allows 'remote linking', so your banner shows up as a Red X. :smile: You might want to check out this thread here for advice on setting up images like from your ISP's webspace-most folks don't even know that included in the monthly fee they pay for net access is usually between 5-15 megs of webspace they can take advatage of to link images and things off of. You could always upgrade to Fixed and be able to use our image hosting service here. :smile:

That image is being hosted on freewebs.com, 86chvs10. Here's what I found in their FAQ about hotlinking:

Can I hotlink images? Can I put Images or files on my FreeWebs account and have them available from other sites?
Hotlinking means storing an image on one web account and linking directly to it from another website. This is also referred to as Image hosting. Some users wish to have their images available to link to from other webpages such as eBay or from their discussion boards. FreeWebs prevents this type of use as our primary purpose is to provide web hosting. However, for those users who do wish to use FreeWebs as an image host as well, we have made available Webzoom which will permit your files to be hotlinked and will also increase their bandwidth speed. You can sign up for Webzoom from your Premium Services area after logging into your FreeWebs account.

That's what you'll need to do in order to have images hosted there show.

Re: banner
Just one more quick note. If that's a paid service (Webzoom), and I suspect it may be, you may want to consider just changing to a Fixed plan here like Nick suggested and host your images on your own board. It's generally quicker loading on your board too to do it that way. :smile:
