and assuming I'm using the correct terminology, such things are not working.

I'm working on a site for my father-in-law's church. I've used Blogspot (partly because I'm restricted on webspace, secondly, it gets good ranking via Google), I've used photobucket for storing and linking the photos (F-I-L seems to want hundreds of photos for people to see. And naturally, I'm using SS for everything else

A friend, who did the logo for me, gave me a link to his website (including his logo) but this would not work The pic disappeared but a link stayed.

Secondly, I'm trying to add a link to a daily bible quote, and for whatever reason, the code gets stripped off and nothing seems to work. Again, the pic disappeared but the link stayed to be clicked on.

I'm no expert, so please forgive any ignorance displayed!

Can you tell us exactly how you are adding these links/bible quotes to your site?

Are you just entering them in the CMS? Or coding them onto the page?

Where sites have been generating code to C&P into the site, I have been clicking on the HTML tab, and inserting the code in the relevant place.

Sometimes this works (as in linking photos from photobucket) but trying to link a bible quotes page doesn't.

SilverStripe CMS strips out unsafe content such as javacscript; this might be the reason that you're having problems.

It might be less error prone if you create a TextareaField in your page class, which is included in your template somewhere appropriate. The TextareaField won't alter your content like the WYSIWYG editor.
