First off Dawn... love the coop, pictures, and descriptions.
1) insert the thumbnail image from photobucket (like you already have it)
2) Select the image in the editor and then click the link icon (looks like a chain link) to link it to the larger version of the image.
See an example by clicking on the first image here:
Please let us know how it works as this would be a GREAT thing for others to do, especially if they want to use bigger images of their coops (because we shouldn't post pictures bigger than 500 pixels wide and 150 kb's in size).
You don't have to save seperate thumbnail images in your Photobucket album, Photobucket can generate them automatically. By prefixing the file name with "th_" it generates a thumbnail, i.e., th_mac.jpg versus mac.jpg.
Photobucket can generate the code for the thumbnails in IMG format or HTML format. When you place a checkmark on a photo or photos and click "Generate HTML and IMG Code" at the bottom of the page it takes you to a page where you can copy the IMG or HTML code that give you clickable thumbnails. For the BYC pages a person can copy the HTML code and use the HTML function in the page editor to insert the code.
Take a look here:
I checked three photos in my album, copied the code for HTML clickable thumbnails, and pasted it there.
