first of all, sorry for the lack of a descriptive thread title, i just did not know the correct terminology to use. all i want to do it host a picture on my site, and do stuff like link to it from MR. so lets say my address is www.address.com. then how do i have a picture so you can type www.address.com/picture and have just the picture open in a browser window? do i just put the picture on the server in the same directory as index.html? and how would i have a sub-section of a site? like address.com/stuff that would open another index.html file? is that a sub-domain? sorry i don't really know any of the proper terminology... thanks for your help. i hope i explained that properly. edit> has something changed with the way the forums work. now you can just type a URL with 'www' infront and it will automatically link. this is new isn't it? very handy, won't have to hit the 'http://' button as much now.
