The many photobucket images on your forum are blurred with a watermark over them, basically useless due to a change in photobucket's usage policy. You have plenty of host storage for your forum.

Quote from: airdave on November 14, 2019, 09:17:30 AMThanks GL....but, 8 mods just for Image handling?Doesn't so many mods result in conflicts and errors?
QuoteBut it concerns me (probably needlessly) to see so many mods just for the same problem.
Quote.........Okay...re your list of Mods...New Hooks...searched, no result, can't find it.Custom View of Attachments...searched, no result, can't find it.Highslide Image Viewer...not sure I want this mod.PM Attachments...not interested.Improved Attachment Error Handling...probably beyond the needs of my forum.Post and PM Inline Attachments...again, probably beyond the needs of my forum.Image Processing Memory Limit...I'll wait to see how many images are being posted. I have a feeling loads will be very low.Automatic Attachment Rotation (and Resize)...this looks like what I want to use.
Quote from: Tricky-Ricky on November 14, 2019, 08:25:34 PMI find it a little strange that smf still does not have an image upload system like most of the big players in this day. I think for most forums its a must people want to see the content and to be honest a forum full of image host images is a turn off.
