    I do not want to allow image uploads on my forum, just URL links. The process of clicking the 'From URL' tab and then un-ticking the 'retrieve file and reference locally' confuses users.

    I would like to remove the 'From computer' tab and also remove the 'retrieve file and reference locally' checkbox, so default behaviour goes straight to pasting in a URL.

    There seems to be a lot of other people who have asked for this too.

    I'm using v 4.1.4 and the solution of editing 'editor_upload_overlay' template doesn't seem to work any more as I can't see the label or checkbox in that template.

    I have tried other solutions in the control panel:

    Usergroups: Can upload attachments = No
    Options: Message Attachment Options 'Attachment Upload Inputs' = 0

    but neither seems to make any difference.

    Please advise

    Find the template editor_upload_overlay


    Code:
    <label for="urlretrieve"><input type="checkbox" value="1" name="urlretrieve" id="urlretrieve" checked="checked" tabindex="1" />  {vb:rawphrase retrieve_remote_file_and_ref_local}</label>
    Replace With

    Code:
    <label for="urlretrieve"><input type="checkbox" value="1" name="urlretrieve" id="urlretrieve" tabindex="1" /> {vb:rawphrase retrieve_remote_file_and_ref_local}</label>
    Is not selected but default.

    I did not upgrade to 4.04 but I can't find this option in 4.05

    When can we have the option to disable this? The old way how inserting an img works was much better than this. Once your forum grows so big and every images people link has to store into our local server then it would use up too much server resource.

    Please make an option to disable this asap. Because this just won't work on bigger forums.

    when is 4.04 coming? because my server hdd is growing bigger and bigger everyday. And it would take a lot of time and effort to clean unwanted images.

The problem is, we are not sure how many users want this option. So please, if you are reading this thread and would find such an option useful, respond here and let us know.

    The option would still allow users to upload images from a website and store them locally using the attachment manager. But it would force the "Insert Image" button to only allow external URL image references (like 3.x).

    So what do you think?
    More control is always good. I say yes to this option.

    Hmmm, I don't believe there is a way in vB4 to disable attaching images from URL completely.

    If the instructions in the thread don't work, you'll need to go to vBulletin.org.

    Does this mean that the option in the ACP will be enabled only in v4.04?

    Any idea when this is slated for release? I'm thinking whether to implement the code hack above, or to wait for 4.04.
