icons

About: Buddy Putty

The essence of this wish is to be able to make picture buttons from small pictures. That is, make a picture a hyperlink just like text is now in the RTE.

This is just one way of getting just an image into the RTE box: (cant make it a link though)

Use Firefox & copy image location & use the insert file from the web button.



This is what I built in dreamweaver:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body>
<a href="http://fastblogit.com"><img src="file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/Mark/My%20Documents/MarkCSS1/psyc1.gif" width="50" height="50" border="0"></a>
</body>
</html>

seems fairly straight forward.

Works best in Firefox. Apparently IE doesn't give you the copy image location function.

Too bad you can't insert a link behind a picture & cause an icon to link to a group ...... it erases the icon with a need for text.

I like this one

I'm sure that Winnie could make some more exciting ones.

three ways to do it
  1. put another box on the hyperlink that asks for the url of a picture
  2. make a new button that is like the hyperlink but takes a picture url instead of text
  3. make the hyperlink tricky and if the text is a image url do it automatically
likes the 3 rd method.  but (1) is a close second. 

Mark de LA says
nbr 3 involves 2 steps & could have unintended consequences. Why would I want to go to the url of an image rather than use the link to go somewhere else like perhaps another item. My vote would be nbr 1 or 2 - seem easier for a newbie to understand.

Mark de LA says
Doug, Clifton - no html allowed in the comments!


Seth says
Actually you can do this now.

  1. Make a hypelink as usual ... like ... Mark
  2. Put an image in the rte box 
  3. drag the image into the hyperlink
.. Mark

It's the drag the image into the hyperlink step that's a little shaky.
Yep, reading and writing and drawing takes skill.  Sure we'd like it to be so easy that any fool could do it ... but the tools for that are simply not there yet.
