Pictures

Postby mpbrockman » August 31st, 2010, 8:23 pm

This has probably been covered before, but...

Is there a way to load some of my Scotland pics from my computer to the forum? I could fetch them from the Sprint site but that seems silly and besides, they'll expire and disappear after either 30 or 60 days (I can't remember which).

Does my inability to accomplish this have anything to do with the fact that under Options HTML is listed as OFF in my current settings?

And why is there no apparent button for "attachments" as many other similar sites I deal with have?

Thanks guys. -MPB

Just upload your images to a site like imgur.com and use the img BBcode commands in your post to link to images you'd like to share.

Permanently hosting lots of attachments on our end can be very resource intensive over time. I'd imagine that's the reason why we don't do it, but I can't speak for sure (I don't handle the back-end stuff).

As for HTML, it's off to prevent potential exploits. Embedding HTML and Javascript in posts opens the door to a wide variety of potential abuse.

Thanks, Brad. I'll take a look at imgur. I may also think about using picasa since I'm at least vaguely familiar with it. Kacey S. puts the GGG stuff there, so I suppose if I get stymied I could ask her for an assist.
