If you sign up to somewhere free like http://www.photobucket.com you can upload pictures there. You copy the url and paste it in here, bob's your uncle.

Would be good to have a system in place where you don't have to depend on a 3rd party host imo tho...

I had someone on here ask me how to post pics, here is what i wrote, hope it makes sense. May need a bit of editiing to make sense???

Quote:
OK, what you should have from photobucket or imageshack is a string of text for the photo that looks like this

http://img92.imageshack.us/img92/9015/pickuprl4.jpg

But to post it in a message you need to hit the IMG button,
So, hit the 'New Topic' button, or 'Reply' to thread button, you then have a white box you can type text into.
Just above this box is a list of buttons, the Bold, Italic, Underline buttons, then a bit further to the right an IMG button. Hit this and it will add this
[img']

and then you cut and past the picture link after the square bracket so then you have this

[img']http://img92.imageshack.us/img92/9015/pickuprl4.jpg

But then you need to hit the IMG button again to add the [img'] at the end of the text.

so you are left with this

[img']http://img92.imageshack.us/img92/9015/pickuprl4.jpg[img']

Or some hosting sites will already give you the string of text with the [img'] already at the ends, so no need to hit the IMG button at all.

Then if you hit the PREVIEW button it should show you what the post looks like with your picture shown.

I hope that helps.

Also i have added some appostrophees, in the [img'] bits above, this is only to stop my picture showing as i needed to show you what the text looks like.

Hope that helps,
Steve

The idea is nice but it'll suck bandwidth up like nobody's business. I don't know the details of how CC's site is hosted besides what was mentioned at stanford but by the sounds of it it's not likely to be the sort of arrangement that can't deliver the type of service you get on FF without it costing the club a lot of money.

bandwidth isnt an issue - we have 300gigs of storage and 3,000gigs of monthly transfer.

this idea is something the moderators are currently investigating and will implement if feasible.

we will update you once we have more information.

delivering 'better service' than the ff is not a problem for Clubcento :)
we have the resources from a paid membership to put into improving all aspects of the club for the mutual benefit of all members and do not have to rely on 'donations' or similar to make things happen.

as we said at the committee meeting - any ideas for improvement we will look into, and if feasible implement. it is your club and we have transparency in all that we do so don't ever hesitate to comment or make constructive suggestions. 8)

This I understand, however my experience with a project I was involved in a few years back was we had a forum going and realised we were only utilising about 10% to 15% of our paid for bandwidth, we as a group decided to host images and other bits n' pieces on the server only to find we were running out of monthly bandwidth quota inside 2 weeks & simply couldn't afford to pay the upgrade fees so killed that idea.

As I said I was working on impressions not real details, I just have had experience of how much bandwidth a simple idea like this can can take up. However don't forget FF uses advertising and if properly managed should let a big site break or better. It's swings an roundabouts.

I'm all for this idea I just hope it doesn't come and bite back with unexpected bills :wink:. I hate it when things go wrong like that.

EDIT: forgot to mention I got the impression the hosting was a lot 'lighter' than what was outlined above.

To be fair, until something is implemented and tested it is impossible to see how much bandwith is going to be used by a project. 3,000 gigs a month is a HUGE amount of data transfer. If picture size was limited to 200kb, that would equate to 15,360,000 picture downloads to even come close :shock:

The link the simian one posted up has details in it, you can have the image system edit pictures to give maximum file sizes of whatever we specify - which takes away a lot of the problem 8)

Shaun,

Your suggested mod has now been installed and is available to all club members. I would like to point out at this point that the team of moderators do not support this mod and cannot make any improvements to its functionality (as its not the most intuitive of updates!!)

Nice one Matt. How was it to install as I've not used it before?

The main reason why I have backed up this idea is because all of the pictures that I have posted in the past have now disappeared thanks to UK2 messing up my server.

Shaun


Cheeky test....
