[code][url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=11829] [img]http://flightrising.com/render/avatars/11829.png[/img] [/url][/code] Which makes this: [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=11829] [img]http://flightrising.com/render/avatars/11829.png[/img] [/url] [b]If you're still curious how I did it...[/b] The long explanation is that I right click->copy image URL for the dragon I wanted, and deleted the question mark and numbers at the end to get the small image url.

I figured I'd post this here for other people to use, since I went through the trouble of typing it up for someone who PMed me.

There are two ways to do it, but the easier way is to just copy and paste this code:
Code:
[url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=1234] [img]http://flightrising.com/render/avatars/1234.png[/img] [/url]

And replace number 1234 with your dragon's ID # (the id # shows up in the url as &did=#### -- the #### part is your dragon's ID) -- Keep in mind the number 1234 that you have to replace shows up TWO times.



Here is an example with my dragon Aveth.

This is Aveth's dragon page URL:
http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=3406&tab=dragon&did=11829

So her ID number ("did" stands for dragon id) is 11829.

So I copy the code I showed you above, and replace 1234 with 11829.
Code:
[url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=11829] [img]http://flightrising.com/render/avatars/11829.png[/img] [/url]

Which makes this:

11829.png



If you're still curious how I did it...

The long explanation is that I right click->copy image URL for the dragon I wanted, and deleted the question mark and numbers at the end to get the small image url. Then I linked it into a post with the image button, highlighted all of that, and clicked the link button to link it to my dragon's page.

Now that I've done it, though, you don't have to. ;) Just copy/paste what I've already got and replace the numbers with your dragon's ID.

:o Neat! Thank you for sharing, the way the big images don't fit side by side in the forums was driving me nuts. xD

I'm back, but life is being complicated. It probably will take awhile for me to reply, because I log on irratically.

Just remember, if you want them side by side you have to put all the code on one line (otherwise the "enters" in the code count as new paragraphs)

The like button isn't working right now for some reason for me. But I definitely do! Thanks a bunch.

How to make the little dragon icons.

I didn't click to go to the dragon's page; instead I [i]copied the image url.[/i] Paste it between the image brackets and cut off the ?mtime=U15YcwAAScU. I had thought the random numbers were the ID for the original owner's lair, but after a little investigating that theory is bunk.

Pinging myself so I can find this again. This work-around has been a lifesaver.

Don't ask me why I do what I do, just understand that I do it with a smile.
