Editing posts to include IMG tags

Post by paulham » 05 Jan 2014, 15:35

A suggestion from me.

I browse the forum and I like to checkout all the builds, I love to see the write up and then the photos of the builds on the same page. Some guys are totally new to the site and haven't yet worked out how to inbed their images into the forum using the IMG tags so they put a link to their photobucket libary.
I rarely ever click on the libary links, perhaps there are more guys like me out there. If the images were on the same page as the write up I would check it all out and perhaps be able to advise on something.

Not sure if its possible but could the mods edit the photos into the post for them, or even at least ask the person to do it and send them a link on how to do it?

Cheers
Paul

In fairness, Paul, this has been up there since the early days:

Yeah it's there. But still people are only putting links to their library's.
perhaps direct people to that link and ask to edit the post.

I just want this place to be the best it can be

It is possible with some forum systems to make picture URLs `imbed` automatically. Would be under image/picture settings in the admin control panel :thumbup:
