User Image Hosting
We have implemented user Image hosting for members of this site.
The limitations are as follows:
Each image cannot be larger than 10000k (which sould be plenty big) nor can it be larger than 1024 x 768 pixels.
Each user can upload 100 images. If it's determined that we need a higher limit, well take another look. Each user can upload 10 images at a atime.
To get to this feature go to the UserCP drop down and click on "Upload and Image":
From here, you will be taken to a page like the image below:
From this point, it's pretty self explanitory.
Some other features you may have noticed floating around:
- In your profile (UserCP) you will now notice a filmstrip down at the bottom that shows your 3 most recent uploaded images.
- Underneath your post count, you will find "My Photos (#)". Click on this number for yourself or someone else and you will be taken to the users hosted images.
- When you are in the "Quick Reply" box click on "Go Advanced", or when you are starting a new thread, below the smilies, you will find a new box called "My Photos". Within this box you be able to either pick one of your previously uploaded images or use the quick upload feature.
- Under the "Member Menu" drop down in the Nav bar, you will find a "Member Images" link where you can see a listing of all of the users who have uploaded images. Click on a users name and you will be taken to their image gallery.
awesome! I noticed that in the profile but was wondering when we would be able to upload..
Totally dig the hosting, but isn't 10,000 KB a little on the large side? Especially if the dimensions are capped at 1024x768? Wouldn't 500k (instead of 9.7MB) be more appropriate?
It was more of a fail safe to make sure people could host what they needed to host.
Disk space is cheap. We discussed it and didn't want to limit folks very much.
Cool, I was just afraid that it could be abused, but I see that isn't the case http://dosshell.com/images/smilies/dblthumb2.gif
Question: Can I move my attachments to my photos and re-reference the posts?
EDIT: Maybe not all but a select few. And how would I accomplish this if its possible?
Nope - you'll have to manually do it yourself.
