Inline Images in Topical Forums Enabled Can't Post

Heya all,

We're now allowing the posting of inline images to topical forums.

This feature was created to allow for the enhancement of the forum experience and for easier information sharing. Inline image posts consisting merely of memes, off-topic images or spam will be removed. We'll also have zero tolerance for pornographic images - see the Forum Rules in this regard. Any individual who abuse this feature will lose his/her permissions to post attachments.

Images that are shown in the forums are all sized to be a maximum of 640 pixels on the x-axis. This is done to preserve the design integrity of the site. If you upload a 2000x3000 pixel image, it will be resized to be displayed at 640 pixels. Clicking on the image or the attachment name will bring up the full size image.

How to Post and Inline Image?

In order to post an inline image attachment, simply submit an attachment as normal, and then use the following piece of shortcode:

Code:
[inline your_attachment_filename.jpg]

File Naming Convention

When you name your images, avoid using spaces, punctuation (other than dashes or underscores) and special characters. The inline scripting doesn't seem to be happy with those. Suggested naming convention would be to either concatenate everything or separate alphanumerical characters with underscores or dashes only. i.e.

picture_of_my_cat.jpg


Larger Upload Sizes

We have also increased the size allowance for attachments. The maximum file size in most forums used to be 300KB - we've moved that up to 1MB.

Which forums has inline images enabled?

General Skydiving Discussions, Safety and Training, Gear and Rigging, Instructors, Tandem Skydiving, Wind Tunnels, Swooping and Canopy Control, Relative Work, Freeflying, Canopy Relative Work, Wing Suit Flying, Photography and Video, (All International topics), Security and Scam Alerts, Premier Membership Support, Suggestions and Feedback, Error and Bug Reports.

Depending on how well this new functionality is received, and used- we will then look at moving it into other areas of the forum.

Use it well, and enjoy Smile

LaughLaughLaugh No worries.... The inline feature is not available in The Bonfire. Give Sangiro some credit, he knows better. Sly
