    Re: Pictures in threads

    I wish somebody would come up with good photo hosting/editing software that works well with vBulletin. If such a thing ever becomes available I'll be all over it. Until then the only options are to struggle with the lame software here or find a good remote hosting site. Unfortunately I can no longer recommend photobucket as they have really started to suck.

    Re: Pictures in threads

    Do you know what version of vbulletin we use? i dont know a whole lot about it but it looks like the latest version is vbulletin 5. you could probably look around or post in their forums and see if theres something out there like that. or ask if theres someway to integrate imgur - im pretty sure imgur has an API that could make doing that possible (probably no editing, but hosting would be nice)

    of course you can always just upload to imgur first and then link it like you would with photo bucket or anything else. I've always just uploaded directly to here but i know there are limits to that.

    Or I'll probably have to fire up the iPhone 4S for photos!!!!

    mistershmi-

    thanks for for the heads up on imgur I'll check it out, I like the convenience of just posting right out my photo library. The forum is currently running vbulletin 4.2.3

    Tim-

    no worries I'll see if there's a way to reduce the picture size and maybe that'll help, maybe it's like mistershmi said that the vbulletin isn't up to date??

    tbkilb01-

    wow still sporting the 4s, i thought I was the only one!!! I had to finally move up, 3 months ago I got the iPhone SE and then just went all out last week and gave it to my son and picked up the iPhone 7... I think it's the phone that's causing the problems.

    We might be behind one or 2 revisions, but our software here is pretty current (we just brought everything up to the latest version ~ 1 year ago. I spent a lot of time researching this the last time it was brought up and posted about it in another thread. Here's a copy paste from that:

    Tim,

    Unfortunately there there are no supported advanced image manipulation add-ons available for vBulletin that I am aware of. Images being sideways and upside down is a common issue due to the way some devices embed data as to the orientation of the camera when the photo was taken and many OS's correct the orientation automatically but generally web browsers do not.

    What I have told my users to do was to start uploading images to an image hosting site like http://imgur.com They offer advanced editing tools, and after uploading they can quickly copy and paste the BBCode (Forum) text and paste it directly into a new post.

    It gives users a powerful easy to use upload option and also keeps your server disk space from getting filled with images that can be hosted elsewhere.

    I hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    URLJet Support


    So, I guess for now, users who have trouble with our on-site photo hosting should go to photobucket or one of the other remote hosting sites. I'm sorry about this as I'd prefer to have complete control of the pics, but I've played this out as far as I can. It's possible future versions of our software will include better image hosting, but for now we are running the latest version and this is as good as it gets. Thanks for understanding. Tim

    thats perfect! i forgot imgur gives you BBcode links. as mentioned, uploading them directly to the forum is better for you (you'll have long term control to keep images from breaking) but those looking for a good external hosting option it sounds like imgur would be the way to go.

    Very cool van, Ace MM! (drool, drool)

    Could you please repost that in the Van and Previa Talk subforum? I think it belongs (deserves to be) there!

    NoLime, in reviewing one of your recent posts I noticed you're using Flickr. As llamavan mentioned earlier in this thread, it's also been my experience that Flickr is not "user friendly" (as it does not offer correct tags for posting pics that display in forums). They only provide links that redirect people to their site to view pics. Photobucket has gotten messed up with other issues (mainly problems with editing pics), but at least they offer up ready made tags for the forum. If you copy/paste photobucket's third picture tag it will display the picture nicely in your post (no need for redirect). Imgur offers tags that will work, but you need to add the code "[img]" ahead of it and "[/img]" behind it (no spaces) to make it display directly in the post.

    FYI, this is all based on personal experience, and I'm far from being an expert in these areas. If anybody has better information, please share. Tim

    Re: Pictures in threads

    I like to use Lunapic. Fairly straight-forward. After a little experimenting most people should be able to use it quite easily. If I can figure it out, so can everyone else.

    Tip: I found when resizing a pic to post on the forum, size 600 x 800 seems to be a perfect size.
    This way the pic is not oversized causing people to scroll left/right to see the whole image.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had not previously heard of them. Tim

    For the benefit of anyone who has been reading this thread, Postimage broke all my photo links, and has since deleted my account and photos without notification. I definitely cannot recommend Postimage for photo hosting.
