Further to the above, consider these 2 images:
They are both exactly the same image, but have 1 vital difference between the 2.
The top one is Hotlinked
from Imgur.com where the second one has been uploaded to, and now hosted
directly by DonationCoder.com
I did this by doing the following:[img]http://i.imgur.com/1Rupeem.png[/img]
[ attach=1 ]
Things within the [img][/img]
tags are Hotlinked - Meaning that the forum simply pulls the image from the website where it is hosted, and shown here.
Things that are linked with the [attach=#]
tag are hosted
by DonationCoder.com itself - This is shown by having to use the "Attach" file option when making a post, which uploads the file directly to the DonationCoder.com server in order to show the file here.
