Free onboard Image Hosting - "photobucket" for your board.

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 15
Released: 01 Feb 2014 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Supported Template Edits  

Should be same install on any vBulletin board, versions 3.0 and up to 3.8.7. I have not tried this yet on vBulletin 4 and up.

This uses NO:
  • Plugins
  • Auto template
  • Files to upload (except one icon image)
  • DB changes

Take a test drive here:


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

Simply go to any thread and have a look at quick reply and click the icon.




I've had this "hack" on my board for a few years and recently installed it on a couple other fellas boards and decided it was time to share the secret. Have your own image hosting tool that is independent of 3rd party ones that like to block hotlinking and take images down after awhile.

The software used is by another author and is not my code. The template edits to integrate it to your vBulletin installation however, is.

First of all go to: http://codefuture.co.uk/projects/imagehost/ and download the free image hosting software.

Upload this package to root level of your server using a clever name for the folder, like "imagemagic" or something related to your board's topic. For a baseball board recently, I styled this "picturecatcher."

You should now be able to use and administer this by going to the URL, yourboard.com/yournameforthis

Once it is installed and working and you have done the setup and configuration to your liking, it is time to integrate this to your board. The best place to do this is in the WYSIWYG editors and the quick editors throughout.

Use "Search In Templates" to find all templates that have the word "separator" or "separator.gif" in them. This will populate the list of all the editor templates in your style. The list looks like this:



And you want to edit the templates you see in red, above.

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

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

You'll want to experiment with this, as not all styles have the same templates for the editors. But most do.

Upload this image to your server at location / and style it "uploadimage.png."



Do this edit for each template indicated on the populated list above that are in red.

The result is, every member who is logged in will see the icon in the posting editors and on click, will give them a popup with the uploader loaded and ready for their images. You and your members will see this in your editors:



And that's it! The uploader itself is very user friendly and intuitive, not much different at all from photobucket, ImageShack, or any other image hosting feature including vBulletin's own attachment uploader. So your membership should have no problems with it.


I posted all images in this post, using this very same image uploader, on my board! So as you can see it can be used anywhere to post images. There are also links provided after upload, for direct sharing, email sharing, and so on.

Enjoy!

And now it works just fine!

Here is everything I did to make this work on VB 4.2.2 in the ckeditor

1. Install the image software as described above. I got the 1.6.5 download and it was working fine for me. All set up and good to go.

2. I followed the guide to add a button here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=278828, as was already pointed out.

3. And the thing that made it all work for me:
Replace

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

With

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

Aside from renaming all the 'celButtonDemo' into something else, that is all I can recall changing from his provided code. Didn't have much luck with changing where the button appeared. Replacing "Quote" with "Image" broke things for me.
I won't say the the setup is perfect, but it works. For example, by button is off center. Would love to know how to fix that.
Please, share modification

Security

Does anyone know how secure this option is? I'd love to install it on my board but run my own server and don't want to open it up to security risks...?

Thanks in advance,

Andy

I haven't had any issues, but yes it winds up being publicly accessible independently of the vB installation, if someone knows the link. As far as exploits, there are none that I know of or have heard of. You might ask the developer, at his site linked in the OP.
