    We intend the Resource Manager to generate some income by putting Amazon.com products in some of the categories and having them click on the images and then go to our Amazon.com store.

    I don't see a way to embed the code so that the images show up. Is there a way to do that?

    Where are you trying to embed them? Inside of the actual resource descriptions?

    Are these resources in of themselves, or do you want to embed Amazon ads into actual resources on your website?

    There's going to be a section called Books. I'd like to put a description of the book, etc. in there and an image downloaded from Amazon.com that people can click on to buy the book if they want.

    Well, if you are downloading the image, you could attach the image and then surround the attachment with a URL tag that links to Amazon.

    I guess there's no way to insert html or code into the Resource Manager or the Forums. I've never understood this. Wordpress has this nice text option and you just plop it in there...

    I will try the option you suggested.

    Unmanaged HTML isn't a good idea on any site. Wordpress whitelists certain HTML elements, since it does not use a BB Code system that translates to HTML. XenForo uses BB Codes, so any HTML is automatically converted to web-safe and not executed. If you need HTML in posts (and extended to resource descriptions), there is an HTML bbcode add-on in the resource manager here that allows you to arbitrarily place HTML onto your site.
