View Full Version : Image uploads

11 Apr 2008, 05:18
Hello there
The problem :
our members use external images /files upload centers in their posts; these links don't work after a while.

What programs can I use to establish images upload service for members.
That is in addition to the attachments function in posts.

I've seen forums have a link (upload files/pics) , browse, then it creates a link to be placed in the posts for the image or file.

All those do is upload to say photobucket. They will still get deleted. The best way is to host the images on your server.

You can always set up a imageshack.us similar script on your server and then restrict it to your userbase. Then, refuse external services being posted as images on posts (I want to do this, but I couldnt yet find the way on doing so, nor spent 5 minutes googling for a solution.
