I can only Thank you both for being Honest.

And that both of you are 100% correct in your analysis.

I built something and no one understands exactly what it is and how it works.

And when asking for help no one wants to help or even attempt to see what I it is that I think I need.

And thanks for helping and giving me advise. I shall shut the door on my way out and not knock again.

It has been a priviledge and a honor to meet you both and thanks for the advise.

Albert D.

even if you had the knowledge or someone that would do it for you, you can NOT do it on your free forum host account. as I said above, you would need the minimum of ftp access to the actual files. this sort of thing can not be done from within the phpbb admin panel, etc.

luck,

Again Thank you for your analysis of my situation.
As I could not sleep thinking about it all night.
One thing that might be a solution to not having access to ftp files is the Forum itself.

Forum's operate off BBCode.

Take for example I made a Thread-Board and in that Post I used BBCode to make a Response Form.
As I was looking at it this morning and by using a string of BBCode to start out with

[imgage of checkbox, followed by the image link with "Text" defining the name of the Post I want it to go to]

"thread link thread-id board-id" Then I am not sure how to enclose this to make it work.
then I would have to be able to enable the Post by some sort. Maybe: ??

[img]http://www._____________.com/images/ardodd/checkboximage.jpg]%20[thread-link%20thread-56%20board-39]%20["class=quick%20reply"%20href="/user/1"%20class="user-link%20user-1%20group-1"%20title="@admin"][href="/post/new][/img]

In your opinion would something like this work?

As it is universal on most Forums. All I am trying to do instead of chaging files or CSS Code is use what i have access to.

And that is Forum Thread and Post option using BBCode to make a Response Form that a member can check box's to what they do and then have it go to Thread Board and Post for that kind of person.

BBCodes are used inside of a post, such as this one.
I do not know what you are trying to accomplish by putting an image of a checkbox inside of a post. Images are only images. They are photographs, not actual forms that a user would be able to type anything into.

and there is nothing you can put into a post ( with or without bbcode ) that will automatically send it to somewhere else on your board and create a new post etc. think about the security issues of that.
