Posting huge inline photos is rude and can be expensive. While many of us have fast connections and unlimited data, not everyone does. In fact many forum members do not. Posting 3 meg images inline is a real hassle for them. Attach it so that if they choose to see it zoomed up, they can.

I never said I would. I just wanted to know how, since many people do it. More a curiosity. Seems that's the message that should get out, rather than everyone saying 'why not just attach them'. I've been using my preferred method of the thumbnail via attachment for years and it works fine for me.

Not that I've done a search check, but I don't recall any moderator ever scolding a member for posting large inline photos, but maybe it has been done.

Does anyone have a solution to this?
http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/forum...tachments.html

The text editting box is probably some ready made jquery code (I did this kind of things when I studied HTML programming but it's too long ago..), anyone comfortable with web programming can easily fix the problem, just remove that malfunctioning attatchment button so people are forced to use the real Attachment Manager below the text editting box.

A new reason to image-host on DIYA instead of elsewhere:

Porn company 5 Star HD Porn bought the expired domain for...Vidme .... any websites with Vidme embeds now have porn on them.

"Hereís (yet another) argument against using third-party embeds on your respectable website: Porn company 5 Star HD Porn bought the expired domain for video hosting site Vidme, which went out of business in 2017. This means that any websites with Vidme embeds now have porn on them. According to Motherboard, which reported the story first, the list of websites with unexpected porn embeds includes New York Magazine, the Washington Post, HuffPost, and others. And yes, we discovered one such embed on The Verge and have since disabled it.
"Itís a very extreme example of link rot, which is what happens when online content or images are deleted or otherwise broken, so the links donít point back to their original targets."

Be careful what you inline: Defunct video-hosting domain used to inject smut flicks into news articles, more • The Register

Photobucket seems to be trying again to to get me to pay for their changing the free account terms to prevent embedding links

I went with it early on to put the images where and at what size I wanted in message texts

I would try to scrape my Photobucket albums if the images could be hosted here and reconnected with my original posts.

I use an external hosting site, but I “[img]” them here in consideration for people who are not signed up or logged in to diyaudio. They can still see the images.

I don’t use photobucket and I don’t insert external links. I find links annoying. As far as photobucket, search any forum for that critical piece of detail you need and I can certify you will find blank photobucket images.

That's fine if you keep up your external hosting site active. But too often people ultimately close those sites and the images disappear. The only safe bet is to embed them in DIYAudio. Yes, it makes users register to see images, but I really don't see a problem with that. The more users, the more attractive the site is to advertisers (those tiny adverts) and the more robust the site is. And if we continue to donate (I donate far too erratically), even those ads aren't necessary. But the more users, the more potential donors as well.
