  • Is there a way to use attachment in few posts in the same time?

    I don't want to duplicate and upload the same images few times, but I want to show the same attachment in few other posts / threads. Is there a way to do it?

    You can use the [attach] tag to do this:

    Make sure you have "View Attachments Inline" turned on under vBulletin Options -> Message Attachment Options and in your User CP under Edit Options check, view images inline.

      I have admin set, but I can't find it in user CP.

      when I place attachment ID between [attach] tags..... it shows link only, instead of thumbnail

        I too would like to be able to put attachment images into visitor messages. Is there away to do show the attachment and not just a hyperlink in the message? I have the CP set inline and have tried the [attach] bb code and the image will not show just a link

          I will vote against this everytime it is mentioned. I would hate to see vBulletins profile turn into Myspace Clone...

            I don't mind to have it hidden for not registered users but for registered ones I want to use the same file in various posts without duplicating the source and uploading again and again

              Jose....I have to disagree....(sorry) say you would not want to see a myspace like saying there should only be "one" type of forum and posts should not include is all about functionality and options....and I for one would like to have the option to allow my users to attach images to their vistor messages

                Images from outside link source have to be resize into thumbs without having you to upload into forums database or file system. I wouold rather it use lightbox to show full size images or any images. I still say no, as it will easy break content area or you have to place scroll bars everywhere (Blah!)


                We can continue this discussion on your suggestion in the proper forum...
