Craigslist posting help please?

I have an ad on CL now, and I'm running into some trouble with it. I have the image on Flickr, and if you click on the image in the CL ad, it takes you to my flickr page. I don't want that to happen, I want the image to link to a different site.

here's the CL ad: http://albany.craigslist.org/grd/1159274083.html

here's the site I want the link to take people to: http://www.airshowjumping.com/airsjnewyork.html


What do I need to do to make this happen? Thanks!

When you create the ad it gives you option to upload up to 4 images. LET CL host it.

Otherwise, you could always host it on www.image-shack.us and link that way.

Those are too small, in the link I posted above, the entire ad is the image. How will Imageshack be different from Flickr?

That is how it is now, but the entire image links back to my flickr page. The image on Flickr is not open to the public so people can't browse everything.

I'm looking for a way to have the image I posted link to a site that is not my flickr page.

Can I do this?

I don't know why image-shack won't work (or any free picture hosting). If you don't want it linked to your Flickr, then use image-shack (or similar) free public image hosting and then code it like huhenio showed.

Thank you artifice!

Although, when I copy and paste that into the ad, after I update it, it becomes this:

<a target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3624/3511008928_b46d43ba18_b.jpg"></a>

It no longer links to my Flickr page, but is CL not allowing me to link where I want?

I just put the pic on my desktop and upload it from there. No linking required.
Do it all the time.

prob is, it uploads really tiny and poor quality. what the OP is trying to do is create a nice sized graphic that takes you to a specified URL when clicked.

I am very interested in your item and will give you $50 more than you are asking if you will remove the listing and agree to meet with my agent. Give me your address, phone number, full name and birthdate and I will send you an International Bank check.

no, you've got it all wrong!

Hello There, Could you keep a straight face if your wallet got
fatter with cash every time someone filled their tank at the gas
station around the corner? See what David did to take home an extra
$1683.59 last week.. with no experience and only an hour a day out of
his regular routine. For less than a coke a day.. find out how
(with no experience) you can be your own boss and take control of your
life.. Just tell us when and where to call. Please.. 18+ only Your
future depends on it.
Less than a coke a day! What kind of coke? Wow. $1,683 a week with no experience? I'm clearly doing this work thing wrong

That turned into this:

<a rel="nofollow"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3624/3511008928_b46d43ba18_b.jpg"></a>

I appreciate the help, I guess I will just leave it as is. It looks good, the website address is there, and it no longer links to my Flickr. Can't be too picky!

Thanks again.

No problem. Looks like CL just doesn't like the code, and is going to change it anyway. GRR.

If you have a nice image somewhere - why not just save it to your computer, and then dump it on CL?

Ya, just upload four photos. That is what my father in law does. And his monitor resolution is 400x600, so I don't see the problem...
