2GN hosting pictures?

Post by BlackRoseRacing » Thu Jan 04, 2018 3:43 am

Here's one.....
What about the chances of 2GN hosting or at least saving pictures? It would be so much easier for some of us to upload pictures to the forum
Vs linking pictures to the forum. I'm a member of AvengerForumz.com and we are able to upload photos to there sight Vs having to worry about linking photos.....
Just a thought

The feature does exist in phpBB3 but I have it turned off. It still goes back to I don't have unlimited space on the the server. In fact it's only 40GB. There might be an extension for phpBB3 though that might incorporate some sort of upload to a 3rd party. I think I found one so I'll do some research on how well it works...

Speaking of pictures, was an upload size setting changed recently? I added a new picture to my build thread, but I had to resize it like three times to get it to fit. The previous images are larger and I was never asked to resize them.

I was messing with the settings to see if the forum would resize the images automatically like I had the previous version do. Sounds like it didn't work.

It had me manually downsize it to 600x600 before allowing me to post it.
