photo album forum - 02/19/07 02:50 PM

Two things:

1. How does one do a search here within one forum? Like for topics specific to Ubb classic?

2. Photo album: I'd like to find a way to have members post images into one forum since the one album (Album.pl...very ackward) I've used that merges with Ubb classic isn't very professional looking or behaving. Can images be uploaded to a forum and somehow be linked to show within the page using the image brackets automatically? Has anyone a suggestion for a photo album that uses membership password?

Well, I'm not so sure about classic. I do have a classic license but it has been forever since I used it.

Now, on the other hand, I do have a current threads license and with 7.0.2 you can upload photos to posts. You can also have the display inline by setting the inline file size and telling your users they must upload images smaller then this limit. You will also need to set the "allow file attachments" in your options tab.

I know this info wont help with the classic server, but if you are thinking about going to UBBt it is possible todo what you wish.

If you click on the Search link in the top nav, you can specify which forum(s) you'd like to search, and other options as well...

Thanks for quick replies. I can't find any option in the cp to allow attachments so I guess this isn't an option for me. Still would appreciate any recommendations for improving our photo album offering.

See Feature Settings in your control pannel you can upload images in to posts.

You can decide which forum to use this feature as in on or off.

Rumour is 7.2 could have a gallery feature?
No statments only on the grape vine?

ubb.classic didn't have an option to upload files smile

phoebe, you can either add a mod from ubbdev to upload files (there's one available), or you can spend some money for imagefolio - does the job but is pretty expensive as scripts go. It does integrate with .classic's members (at least their 2.x version did). I managed to get it to migrate to photopost when I changed from .classic to .threads, but it was a lot of work.

I figured phoebe needed someone to actually give her a straight answer and not tell her to use a feature in threads that isn't in classic wink

http://www.imagefolio.com - decent, but expensive and the support has been abysmal for years now.
