    You are now able to post your own pictures in this forum

    All,

    The old RedsZone picture system that we had in place was to have the user email his or her pictures to me if the user wanted them posted in this forum. As a result, the user could not start the picture thread - I was the one who did that. I have now designed a new system that allows a user to start a new thread (with their user name as the title) and include an attachment(s) with the pictures. The only caveat to this is that all new threads must be approved by an administrator or moderator before they actually appear on the board. The way it works is that you make a post and it is automatically sent to us for approval. If it is approved, it will immediately appear in this forum. The reasoning for this is simple: to ensure that nothing obscene is attached. This only applies to new threads; replying to a thread with your comments does not require moderator approval.

    My only request is that you keep the pictures reasonably sized; for example, most digital cameras, by default, take MUCH higher resolution pictures than is required for viewing over the web. In situations like this, I'd appreciate if you'd resize them down to a more reasonable size before posting. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

    Boss

    Boss, are we supposed to be able to see the pictures that were originally posted in the threads below? All I'm seeing when I open a thread is some stray html code instead of a photo.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Yes, they're working for me. Anyone else?

    I didn't see any myself. I'm on firefox, don't know if that affects it or not though.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    They work on FF, you have to list the threads from the beginning, the option is at the bottom of the page.

    Thanks, but I already have them defaulted to the beginning. I just go into many of the threads and there are no photo's there at all, just the text stating this is Poster X at the Park or with Player Y.

    Hmmm...some work and some won't. Try the link for Roy:

    http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4190

    I see this:

    Here are some pics of me and my family. pic1 is
    me and pics 2 and 3 are the family.

    <img src="http://www.redszone.com/users/roytucker-1.jpg" alt="" />

    <img src="http://www.redszone.com/users/roytucker-2.jpg" alt="" />

    <img src="http://www.redszone.com/users/roytucker-3.jpg" alt="" />

    I can view just the picture in a browser window if I cut and paste just this part into the address bar of the browser:

    http://www.redszone.com/users/roytucker-1.jpg

    It seems that those on the first page of the photo forum work and those on the second page don't. No big deal, just curious...

    Thanks, now I see what you guys are talking about. The problem is that some of those older posts were made when we were still posting on the Ultimate Bulletin Board (UBB) system and not all of the code perfectly converts over to vBulletin. It will require manually changing the code to point to the proper URL...I'll get to it when I have a chance.

    All the picture links should be fixed now. Let me know if you find one that's not. Thanks.
