How To Upload Pics To The Forum.
« on: December 28, 2011, 11:38:21 PM »
Uploading using photobucket

Step 1 - Go to www.photobucket.com and create an account if you dont already have one.
Step 2 - Create an album and upload the pictures you want.
Step 3 - View the images you want to upload and paste in the [img] code to your thread or post.
Step 4 - Hit post and youre done

Pros:
- No downsizing (but if its big you have to do some scrolling)
- No limits (that I know of)
- Can put the pictures in any order
- Image is displayed in full

Cons:
More time consuming
- If you remove the online version the version on the forum will also disappear.
- There may also be restrictions but ill have to look into that

The forum will be getting a place for pictures but not just yet. All you are doing at the moment is using up all the bandwidth so the Forum will get slower and slower. This is why I am hosting the mug shots on my site.

It is for this very reason some forums (like the BBS, for example) do not allow pics to be loaded directly onto the site, they have to be done through a separate host such as Photobucket.

As I have said numerous times already, please THINK before loading 'non-necessary' pics onto the Planet, at least until I can speak to our Hosting people when they return from the Christmas/New Year break about our bandwidth usage/possible upgrade.

Thanks.

Can you consider adding software which automatically resizes the uploaded pictures in the future, as I'm sure that more users will add photo's then.

Thanks
