I generated a code for the image using Microsoft FrontPage. I guess the code it generated was the classical code used to add images on a website. (as seen on fig 1.)
I wanted to see if the code worked for embedding images, so first I tired using the code to post the image in on my hi5 profile, and it worked. I could see the image.
So basically, the formula for the code for adding an image to your website would be the one on fig. 2. I guess
Then I did what I wanted to do in the first place, I sent the code as a hi5 photo comment so that it would show as a banner. I sent the comment and I got the confirmation message "Your comment has been sent! It will appear after it has been approved"; you know, the message that appears after you send a comment on hi5.
But the thing is that I never received the confirmation mail form hi5 telling me that the comment was approved; you see, the hi5 account I sent it to is set to automatically approve all comments sent. I always send photo comments to this account and they always get automatically approved. so there is obviously something wrong with the code I sent.
I checked some pages, they advice things like uploading the images on pages like imageshack, which makes me think that probably Geocities is not suitable for this purposes.
I'd like to know how I can send the images I make as banners. If there's a formula for a code, it would be just great.
