Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This hack has now been discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates as this thread is no longer monitored. I am also not interested in doing paid work requests to update this hack at all.

What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update of my v3.8.x hack available here, designed to work with vBulletin 4.

NOTE: Because of the difficulty of auto-inserting xhtml code into templates in vBulletin 4, I have gone old school and the display locations are now done via Manual Template Edits. If there was an easy, consistent and reliable way to auto-insert xhtml into templates these edits would be done automatically, so blame Internet Brands for you having to do the template edits and not me.

The v3.6.x version of this hack is listed on the official ImageShack's 3rd Party Tools page, and that links to this version - see ImageShack :: 3rdparty ::

With kind permission from Dannyloski, I have now fully updated and integrated his Photobucket Image Uploader hack (which was itself, with my permission, based on my Imageshack Image Upload hack for v3.6.x.) into this hack (as of v3.8.004).

This is a hack that adds the ability to upload images/files to the Imageshack, MEGAUPLOAD or Photobucket services and be given a url to post in your posts to show your now uploaded file(s), it is available:
  • when creating a new thread
  • when creating a new post
  • editing a post
  • creating a new private message
  • replying to a private message
  • creating a new blog entry (vBulletin Publishing Suite only)
  • editing a blog entry (vBulletin Publishing Suite only)
  • creating a new vB CMS article (vBulletin Publishing Suite only)
  • editing a vB CMS article (vBulletin Publishing Suite only)

The Imageshack, MEGAUPLOAD & Photobucket dialog box are controlled independently via usergroup permissions.

You can control the size and color of both the Imageshack (fully customisable), MEGAUPLOAD (3 sizes and 6 colors) & Photobucket (fully customisable) boxes centrally from the AdminCP.

You do NOT need a premium account to upload using either Imageshack or MEGAUPLOAD.

With MEGAUPLOAD, you can enter your premium account license key (if you have a premium account) in the AdminCP options (see post #57 @ for more information).

If you allow your members to use Photobucket, your members will need to registered with, and login to Photobucket to be able to upload files to Photobucket.

AdminCP settings for this hack available in vBulletin Options -> Imageshack, MEGAUPLOAD & Photobucket Uploader.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Imageshack iFrame properties - size of the upload input field. The width, height and color (this setting will work instantly once the Imageshack developers fix this) of the iframe
  2. MEGAUPLOAD Embedded box properties - size and color of the embedded MEGAUPLOAD box. You can also enter your premium account license key if you have one (see post #57 @ for more information).
  3. Photobucket Embedded box properties - size and color of the embedded Photobucket box.
NOTE 1: If you have highly customised templates or styles and the imageshack/MEGAUPLOAD/Photobucket dialog box does not display after usergroup permissions are set, then you may need to manually add the contents of the imageshack template to the templates where you want the dialog box to appear. If that does not work, you are on your own.

Usergroup permissions for each usergroup are available in Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Enable the Imageshack Image Upload dialog box
  2. Enbale the MEGAUPLOAD Uploader dialog box
  3. Enable the Photobuck Uploader dialog box

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.1.0.

It's not a problem with this mod - it's a problem with Photobucket. None of the photobucket addons work at all for me.

The dev. page at photobucket even refuses to upload a test image from their very own code.

Anyone successfully removed this mod then updated a usergroups permissions?

I find that if I leave this installed but disabled everything works fine but if I uninstall the mod then updating a usergroups permissions spits an error about a missing column in the SQL data base...

Anyone had this issue before??

edit: Seems that I neglected to delete the "bitfield_ms_imageshack_upload.xml" file... removing that file seems to have done the trick... when in doubt RTFM :P

Sorry for mooving up this thread. I have the same problem when removing this hack :

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'ms_imageshack_upload_permissions' in 'field list'

i do a sql requete like this :

ALTER TABLE `usergroup` ADD `ms_imageshack_upload_permissions` int (10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0 '

And then all is ok now !
