Attachments for images hosted elsewhere? (4 posts)

    Is there any way that I could use the image attachment function with images hosted elsewhere (like Photobucket)?

    Not sure if this is too simple of a response, but I believe Photobucket provides you with the necessary link to just paste into the post you want an image to appear.

    Yes, but they provide a link to the full image. What I need is to have thumbnails in a post and when you click on them, a new page would open with the full-sized image.

    Is that possible?

    maldevivre, its easy, just copy the code that say "HTML Code" , its right below "DIrect LInk", copy that code while you are in code or source mode, that way, it will let you click on the image itself, which will open in a new page, or if you use lightbox, the lightbox will be activated, if you copy the direct link code.. its just a plain image on your post, nothing else... also try selecting all the images on your gallery, and at the bottom click "generate HTML code" and choose the 1'st option of code, that works well with wordpress.. goodluck
