Direct upload photos on the forum
« on: January 17, 2018, 04:39:58 AM »
I would like to check if there is a way to upload pictures directly to the site? Found this mod: https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=205 is there something else?

i use the Gallery mod sometimes but simply adding them as attachments (like from my phone) is the quickest.

i have made a small modification to make bulk attachments in one go.

does that help ?

Are you talking about Attachments and other options? I disabled this option and looking for some mod which will allow members to upload pictures directly. It would really improve performance of the forum.

There are a couple of mods I found with a fast search on the cust. site, but I have not tested any one of them myself.

Simple Image Upload
Tinypic Plugin
Simple Image Upload by Tectonny
ImageShack Syndicate

There may be others available too, if you take a look at https://custom.simplemachines.org/
Or if you don't find one suitable, perhaps post in Mod Requests

What is the "the best" would depend on your specific needs really.

Our members upload a lot of pictures on the site and many of them use mobile phones so it is not really convenient to upload on third site first and then add a link to the forum. That's why I was looking for better direct image uploading.

And all the mods I linked, do that in one way or the other.
