Here I am again...fine tuning things...love all that i'm seeing unfold with setting up threads 7.4 but the users of our Classic have been around for years and are used to certain things.

Most of them use something like "Photobucket" for their images.
Many like to post videos. Our old Classic friendly album let them do that.

QUESTIONS FOR 7.4:

1. How do I enable a video with .avi or .mpeg to be uploaded and embedded into a Gallery forum? Also, can I increase the 8m maximum?

2. How do I keep the Gallery forums from insisting on an attachment even though the image url tag is used to grab a photo from a remote location?

Any help appreciated.

You cannot (via stock) upload videos; the gallery is image oly at this point.

Well, the attachment IS the image; so it's insisting that there BE an image FOR a gallery posting...

but..but...but...

What if their image is at another location (photobucket) and they want to embed it in the gallery rather than the regular forum?


I guess one could create two forums under a Gallery category, one a gallery forum the other a regular forum specified for remote links?

You are correct. The "Gallery Forums" work with the built in gallery functions; basically, attachments are listed in the gallery format, and only those of "image types" are allowed; the only real difference in a gallery forum and a normal forum is that the attachments are assumed images (since they're the only allowed attachment types) and are listed embedded in the page vs called via a link...
