I’m not sure you understand how HTML pages work. Images in web pages are always linked, although, often the links may be local not to external sources. You can load the image into a folder within the images folder of your phpBB installation and then just use the path to that location in the [img] tags.
I also would love the option to have members from the index page view these static pages via a tab. Does anyone know how to do this? my site is: http://www.itsallaboutmusic.net
See the tabs up top. Idea is to have a News or Featured Reviews Tab and then have the page links there. Appreciate if someone could help me on this part. I use subsilver2, hate prosilver
For the tabs you state that you are using subsilver2, but the site you link to appears to be using the X-Static Skin style that may be based on subsiver2 but is not subsilver2. The tabs are probably buttons and would be created in a similar way to the other non standard tabs you’ve created, like Arcade and Chat. The URL to point to would be whatever the one for the relevant static page is. Subsilver2 will not be supported in future versions of phpBB. It is a style based on tables which more modern page design has moved away from.
I also would like a moderator to have the ability to create a page, but as of now this can only be done via the ACP. Is there another way?
At the moment the only way is to also give the moderators administrator permissions. You could look at transferring the ACP module to the MCP, not sure how difficult that would be.
Also, the ACP instructions are not 100% correct, at least not in my case.
Finally, you need to add the module in the ACP to manage pages.
1. Go to ACP :: System :: Modules (Administration Control Panel)
2. Click the .MODs category and create a module category under it named ACP_PAGES (Do not activate)
3. From the drop-down box select the Manage Pages module - add it and enable it (but choose no parent)
4. Now just go over to the MODs tab to see your new module. (Not true, it never shows thus see my bold comments. It may show for some but from reading the posts it does not for everyone
Not sure about the install instructions being incorrect, in step 2 you “activated” the module despite the instructions not telling you to do that, same for step 3 you seem to have assigned a parent when the instructions didn’t say to do that. The instructions worked for most people, so I would say that something is, indeed, broken on your end. However, if you can now see the "Manage pages" link in the ACP and it takes you to that page then it sounds like you got it working and it should be fine.
