View Full Version : Image reposting

04-10-2005, 08:07 PM
I can't get images from other posts to appear in new ones without re-uploading them and thus wasting space. They show on my "edit" page, but only appear as links in the actual post. :(

Any hints?

e.g. this done with the "insert image" button:


Anybody see the RTA curve?

I noticed this a few weeks ago. I've made a post about it on Vbulletin's support forum, but have yet to gain a solution. Out of curiousity, in what forum were the images that you were trying to link to? I tried linking to images in the Project May private forums and I think that the restricted access of those forums is causing the problem.

Both the image and the new post are in the "Quick and Dirty 4430's" thread in the Technical forum.

Does the "&stc=1" have anything to do with it, maybe?

From what I can gather, the issue is a result of restricting the ability to download images to registered members. vBulletin will not display images that are links to a forum attachment since this would bypass that restriction. I prefer keeping the restriction in place since it has become a great incentive to get the many lurkers to join and become contributors to our forum.

That's fine. I'll continue to use links unless it's really, REALLY, important. :D
