VB Image Hosting Version 1.0.1

This is the port for my hack to vb 3.6.x
check it for vb 3.5.x here

A New installer replaced the old one so you should not face any problems with database

People who were using vbimghost in vb 3.5.x and moved to vb 3.6.0 MAKE sure that you have vbimghost 1.4.1 Since this port will only support upgrading from that ver only
People who do a fresh install use this ver.

  1. requires GD 2.0.1 or later (2.0.28 or later is recommended).
  2. PHP ver 4.3.x or later (newer ver is better).

What does it do ?
VB Image Hosting is a similar feature to imageshak and photopoket and online free image hosting, but this is for your members. it will allow them to upload and host their images on your servers, you can still manage the permissions and set the number of files for each group.

  • fix some minor mysql problems.
Download Tracking:

Known Issues:
no known issues.


before you post any error here :
Set that path to your forums correctly in the vbimghost options.
if you getting the error "
"supplied argument is not a valid"
that's because you didn't set the path correctly

And for all the people asking when is the next release it will be in 2007 not this month .. due to some problems in real life ..

Great Hack!

I can upload images. they do appear in the respective directory (including the thumbnail) but they do not appear on the page when I view either my iamges or all user images - I can see the images have uploaded into the directory but that is all ... any suggestions?

Working now It was a path error with the host - great hack - thanks

I posted about some errors but they were unrelated to this mod and i posted them in the 3.5.4 thread...oops. Anyway this is working flawlessly except the Text Watermark size 4 doesn't seem to work but that could be my board and I'm using and image so no worries.

Where would I find the code that actually gets added to the posts? I want to add a "Click Image to see Full Size Image" or something like it.

It would be nice to have Image Description and some options to use other tags like Floating Image (IMGL and IMGR) although that's easy to add the L or R to the tags and maybe HTML code option so that ALT tags could be used on the full size view.

It's too bad the old VBAgallery and now the new Photopost VBGalley didn't do something like this so that adding pics to posts wasn't such a chore. Think there might be a way to tie this in with it?

I have this installed and it is great but I have one small problem. The option to open your images does not appear in the signature or PM creation screen. Instead you're left with a simple [] where the [open] should be. It is explained in more detail by one of my users:


k I've tracked down that bug (it's also identical on the create sig page)

this is what the error looks like in both cases (probably same template)

as you can see there's nothing between the []'s for open as in post reply:

the bad code set looks like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Note you see there's just a spacer (;nbsp) and not the word 'Open' hence you can't open your image gallery for hot linking) Also I'd recomend in all templates a <br> tag thrown in between the 2 as the 'quick uplink' tends to wrap in the space given.


Has anyone else encountered this issue and if so how did you fix it?

The phrase "open" is in the "Thread Management" phrasetype, and the sig editor don't use this phrasetype. Two possible solutions:
  • Ranma2k updates his mod by adding a new vbphrase especially for the mod (for display "Open" correctly in the sig editor).
  • Add the 'threadmanage' in the profile.php file. Search this:
    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    And modify to this:
    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The better way to correct this is the second for the moment.


So, I've found a little thing to fix (very trivial). When you see your images (vbimghost.php?do=myimages), for the file size, the 'KB' is missing (not missing from the admincp when you see images for all users). If the 'KB' expression can be added into the language system...

Or... just go into the phrase manger (languages and Phrases) and do the following:

Open Global (should be the default opened)
add new phrase
variable = open
Text = Open

Save and enjoy

I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but if someone hosts an image on my fourms, can they hotlink that image elsewhere? I'd prefer the images to only be viewable on my forums.

Also it would be nice if forum Admins and/or Mods could browse through all the images, regardless of whether or not they're set to public.
