Yeah, I know. I really need to set aside some time to redo all of the support write-ups for photos.

The 'upload attachment' tab can be found below the posting window and 'submit' button and next to the 'options' tab. Click on it, click on the 'Choose File' button and select the photo you want. Typing in a 'File Comment' gives the photo a caption. After upload you have the option to place attachments "inline" wherever you want them to appear in your post, otherwise by default they will appear where you left your cursor in the posting window and will line up in the order uploaded. File size is restricted to 2MB or less and max 12 photos/attachments can be added to a single post.

Several people have had issues 'hotlinking' photos from Google. The issue is usually related to permissions. Just make sure that the "Share Options" of the album is "Anyone who has a link" and "Does not require sign-in". From what I've heard It doesn't look like google photos lets you choose sharing permission for individual photos, only entire albums. Once you've copied the true URL path of the Google image, insert it using the 'rimg' BBCode button just above the posting window.

Reviving an old thread that may have some new answers. I have a few TRs to post, but all of my photos are much larger than the 2MB limit. What's the best way to upload these so that they are still engrained in the TR as folks read along? Does Flickr still work well? Other suggestions?

I generally just open the pics I have with paint and use the resize feature until I get the pic under the limit.

Thanks, rlown. There are also some free online options out there that accomplish basically the same: https://www.google.com/#q=free+photo+file+size+reducer

Thanks rlown and Eric. I'll use a simple resize and resave to my PC before upload if that's the easiest way. This will help me get some TRs up.

You asked about Flickr.. I'll add this : http://blog.flickr.net/en/2013/12/18/flickr-web-embeds/

I'm not saying it works (flash issues), but there might be others here who use flickr to host pictures and have successfully posted (or elsewhere, share).

As I tend to take 200+ pics and cull them after trips and share maybe 10 per trip, I just upload them to HST. I share with these folks and not so much outside HST.

Yeah. I guess my underlying question was 'are there ways to embed the photo to bypass the 2MB limit on HST?' I'm not familiar enough with this type of thing to determine this. I totally understand the 2MB limit (for webpage loading times), but was hoping that if it was embedded from another hosting site at full size, it wouldn't strain the resources of the HST domain. (And it would also remove a couple steps of having to resize and resave before uploading.)

ImagePuppet Lk 2010 063 by Russ Lown, on Flickr


Way painful, but I know how to do it now. (not necessarily a pic of Puppet btw)

Code: Select all
[url=https://flic.kr/p/R2Ay4s][img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2648/32179539784_83d1d9b045_k.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/R2Ay4s]Puppet Lk 2010 063[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/152128876@N07/]Russ Lown[/url], on Flickr


first you need a flickr acct. next you upload your pics and those you share must be public. You pick each pic you want to share and grab the BBcode (right click; share) grab that link with a copy and paste it back into the place you want to post it.

Gotcha. I just read an old TR where someone seemed to do something similar with Photobucket. Thanks very much!!

Have you tried phpbb 3.1.4 yet you can just drag and drop the pictures in the box where you type a reply to a topic (same box I am typing this reply) and it automatically uploads the pictures NO MORE selecting each attachment one at a time then clicking upload, having that annoying box popup then when its done uploading the single attachment reloading your page so you have to scroll down so you can add your next attachment.

I can add 20 pictures to a post as fast as it takes me to attach just one picture using phpbb 3.0.12. just open up Explorer (in Windows) navigate to where I keep my pictures select the pictures I want to attach to the post drag and drop them DONE.

The way phpbb 3.1.4 allows you to attach attachments is genius ! Give it a try I doubt you will still want to use something like vbulletin 3 style attachment uploading...

My hat is off to the phpbb development team job well done!


No, I haven't played with it, but it would be nice.. I know content size is important to control.

Sigh.. Yes, it's time to upgrade again. The bummer is that by doing so all of the templates have to be completely rebuilt from scratch.

No pressure.. The current site works very well. Congrats to you (and Greg) I did look at the template upgrade thing a bit for fun and it seems there are holes in the process.
