Please post the code you used so that we can see what you did.

edit:   actually change the www in the star image url to images like this:

I am an admin on the forum, but don't have access to the back end to add new images.  Can I use pics from a hosted file sharing site?

On the manage membergroups page i tried to place a URL such as to http://www.snapdrive.net/files/Stuff/mystar.gif and i get the broken link image.  Is the "star" too large, wrong format, or am i forced to place this file inside the image directory on the backend?

Thanks,

LK

PS the link above is purposely invalid.  I wasn't going to post the real link here.

You can not put an external link there -    you have to use a swapper code to do it.. 
Follow the directions in the first post in this thread as it tells you how to change your rank images.

I'm an admin, but not the owner.  I don't have this option in my admin menu:

Paste it into your Footer   (Admin > Manage Styles > Edit HEader/Footer)

Here is what i have: http://www.snapdrive.net/files/577388/NWNStuff/admin%20page.JPG

Possibly you are not using a forum hosted by this service then.
What is your forum's url please?

You'll need to use http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php for support.   They will tell you there how you can change your rank images.   Hosting the forum yourself is very different then using a hosting service.   We do support here only for forums hosted by our service.

Thanks for the thread. Me and friend are working on putting all the URL's and stuff in. If either of us have any problems then we'll make sure to put them on this thread. Once again thanks.

You used the wrong url for the original image:

Quote
IMPORTANT:  It is important that you have the CORRECT url or this will not work.  It has to be the url of the image that is displayed on the starfile image page OR in a post NOT the one on the Membergroup page. 


Change http://www.smfboards.com/ranks/3cyan.gif to http://images.smfboards.com/ranks/3cyan.gif

Did you set 3cyan.gif in the Admin Membergroup as the starfile image and it DID show up before you put the code in?
