    Hi All,

    I'm having a little with the Image Url.

    When I use this:
    <CENTER><a href="[WM-Field: Website_URL]" [WM-ImagePath: IMAGE_URL] width="130" height="130"></a>

    I get this:
    <CENTER><a href="[WM-Field: Website_URL]" [WM-ImagePath: IMAGE_URL border="0"> width="130" height="130"></a>

    Where is the border="0"> coming from????

    It's causing my image not to show, and the extra > is causing the width="130" height="130"> to print on the page.

    This sounds simple enough, but I can't get it. Can anyone help with this.

    Thanks a lot,

    Ken

    Sorry you are having trouble Ken.

    I would use this WM tag first, configured this way before I tried anything else:

    <a href="[WM-Field: Websire_URL]"><img src="[WM-Field: IMAGE_URL]"></a>

    Skip the "image URL" tag, and just use a normal WM field tag. If you have to have the size specification in there (Not neccessary, unless you have something special going on), then you can always add it. You could even have the border spec in there ahead of time, it shouldn't do anything bad.

    Try that, and see what happens. You can look at some detail template references here if you like.

    buy_online,

    Hey, Thanks a lot!! That did it.

    It also solves the problem I was having with the ALT not working properly.

    I do need to use the size spec because I'm reducing the size of a graphic to fit a specific spot on my site.

    Thanks again.

    Ken

    The WM-ImagePath tag is just a convenience for quickly adding images to a template. For more control writing the full IMG tag yourself with WM-Field to insert the url gives you total control, as Fred wisely pointed out.
