Stovebolters,

At long last, we've finally worked out (most of) the bugs with servers, bandwidth, forum software to have images posted in our forums. Just a few things to remember as we bring this capability on line over the next few hours:

1. Posted images are called "attachments" and will be limited in size to 300k. Anything bigger than that will get rejected.
2. Limit of 5 images per post.
3. Images/attachments are only enabled in the technical forums and the Swap Meet.

Please read the full policy, guidelines and instructions here

Please be patient while I set the codes and the permissions. This could take a few hours to fully implement and there may be spotty performance in the meantime. Please hold all issues and questions for 24 hours while I get things set up.

This is NOT a substitute for 3rd party image hosting (photobucket, snapfish, picasa, etc) so please curb your urge to upload your entire photo directory to my server -- that's not what this is for. Please take it easy on the moderators smile

Thank you,
John

Wow, thanks John

Let's see how long it takes to hear the moaning about how to adjust image sizes. It will be worth it.

Testing
Works very good.
I resized using MS paint
The attached image was 436k as shown at very bottom of MS paint window
Clicked on resize, dropped percentage 26%
Clicked on save.
After save it showed 293k at very bottom of MS paint window. (Images must be 300k or less to upload) (Max of 5 images per post)
Uploaded with no problem.
Completely painless
Thanks,

I just posted a test picture in the 1 ton forum THANK YOU John and the crew!
For the most part resizing is painless.
This should be perfect for those quick head scratching moments when you need to ask what did I do wrong or here's how I did it, LOL.
Thanks again.

This is a very nice feature/enhancement to Stovebolt.com

What is the size limit in various fora?

I can sometimes post images larger than 300K and sometimes not.

Thanks,

Depends on which forum you are in and if you are logged in as the username by which you moderate (if you have multiple accounts...) Moderators get to post larger images ... wink
