I've tried a couple of times to display a picture in one of my posts with no luck. I checked out the FAQ section and it said if Markup is enabled, use the following format:

url

I used both [], lowercase, and included the full URL, but I still can't get a picture to be displayed. Last time I checked, Markup was enabled. Has anything changed? Can anyone help? Thanks.

2 possible problems for you bishir:

1.) Geocities usually blocks direct links to pictures.
2.) You need http:// in the address.

Bishir: First, you left out the "http://". Second, there seems to be something wrong with your URL (you sure the JPG is all caps?).

Broken image above is from your URL, with http:// added in front. Here's the same link except with an image of mine:

Yup... Geocities is awful... You would have the same problem on eBay. There are a bunch of better free hosts out there that don't block it.

I simple way to confirm that your host does not allow direct linking is by trying it here. If it does not load try copying the url you entered in your post to your address bar. If you can go to it this way then your host is blocking this type of traffic.
