  • Posting Images on sidebar

    I for the life of me can't find how how I was uploading images that I would put into advertisement modules on my sidebar when I was using the cloud version. Did this move or is it non existant for VB5? There used to be an area where I could upload images to the database and then copy that URL to be inserted into some coding that I have for my ad module to make it display.

    I feel like I am going crazy looking for it...

    On vBulletin Cloud, you would use the vBulletin Cloud File Manager in the AdminCP. This is not available on the download version. You would have to upload the images view your favorite SFTP client or cPanel and then reference their URL within vBulletin. I suggest creating a directory within /images to hold your custom images/advertising. And then using it in your HTML for the ads. Something like "images/ads/image1.jpg" would allow you to reference them in the Ad Module.

      So I just create a new folder under images titled whatever I want and put the images into there. How do I get the url to use in the ad module? Or is that what you mean by images/ads/image1.jpg ? In other words I would take images/(folder I create)/(name of image).jpg

      And then I would put that into the following?

      core/css/0/0/3/4/5/5/images/(folder I create)/(name of image).jpg

      Or do I have that all wrong?
