    If possible I think if we could have the option of turning the text above our post to a link of a pic of our trucks that would be sweet. I am forever reading about what trucks the guys have, and what mods they've done, and I go to click on the mods because it is the blue/bold link color, thinking it is a link, and then I remember oh yeah, I need to go to the photos and search for that username to see what the truck actually looks like, and I, like other people, am too lazy to bother. I know I would be forever clicking on that mod-text to see a picture of the truck that those mods pertain to if I had the option.

    Thanks

    But that only takes you to the persons photoalbum, imagine if you could go straight to the most updated pic of their truck. For example i just clicked yours, and I had to look through a number of pictures that were not your truck, just pics you had added of showtrucks/parts ect, just like other peoples photo albums. You ahve to sort through to find a good picture of their truck and if they dont put anything in the description you can't be sure that it is their truck (they should enter something into the description but not everyone does.)

    People could update their profile pic in their usercp w/truck pic... however, that is traditionally where you'd put a pic of yourself... works either way... and you could click a person's avatar to go straight to their pic...

    The only problem is there's no way to enforce it. People could have a link in their sig line to their truck pic in the album.. again, no way to force the issue..

    It's a great idea!!

    In fact, along that same idea.... How can I put a LINK of my own personal photo gallery of my truck within the gallery of the forum's?
    I have a website of my own that I host my pictures on. Instead of uploading pictures to the forum and using up disc space here - I'd rather just post a link up and not duplicate the efforts. I'd tried briefly adding a link - without success. Not that I tried very hard.....

    I guess it doesn't allow for html (or pbb or whatever this forum uses) code in the profile box. That'd be cool.


    I guess the only way to do that is add it to your signature - cuz it'll allow code but only certain people will use it that way.
