bbcode and pictures from the CDRLabs database

Postby dodecahedron on Tue Feb 15, 2005 2:01 pm

unfortunately, the picture database of CDRLabs is set up in such a way that it's not possible to post images in forum topics. the bbcode tag Img won't accept them.

example:
Code: Select all
[img]http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/images-view.php3?imageid=7121[/img]

has this output:
Image

as far as i can figure it, the bbcode expexts a .jpeg/.jpg/.gif/.png etc filetype at the end.

the best workaround i've come up with is:
Code: Select all
[url=http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/images-view.php3?imageid=7121]picture!!![/url]

which gives:picture!!!

clicking on the link will give me the picture in another window (or tab). not as good as embedding the picture in the post.

is there any way to fix things so that it will be possible to use the database pics ?

There should be, since if I recall correctly, I used to do just what you are describing and it worked fine. I think something must have changed in one of the recent phpBB releases.

Where xxxx is the # of the image.

Please do so. I remember reading it and forgot where that was when I wanted to do this.
