    Where did you read that? FC does not have limits on pixel size? So, if for example on vBulletin, I post a full size image from my smartphone that is say about 3,000pixels width X 1,500 pixels height> uh, have you seen what this does to readability? <<<Good thing I do not have a 50MP Canon 5DR(will fit just fine on the 32" 8K resolution Dell just announced, lol). I do have a desktop screen @32", but I do not use that computer as much as a smartphone & laptop (pretty big these days @15+" diagonal)...and 3k pixel width images means you have to scrowl back N forth just to read the text of the post(and all other posts on that page are thrown off)...major PITA.

    http://www.infobarrel.com/XenForo_Forum_Software-_Embed_Photos_and_Center
    ^from 2010, has Xenforo changed since then?
    "
    Uploading Images into XenForo
    When making a thread on a XenForo forum you will have the option of embedding the image into the post as a clickable thumbnail or a full size image. If you choose the thumbnail option the readers can easily click on the image thumbnail and get the full size image.

    If you choose to embed the image into the forum, you will not have to resize the image at all. If the image is larger then what is allowed by the width of the forum, the image will automatically be re-sized to fit within the forum, and it is a smooth, clean, and flawless fit.

    If you click on an embedded image then the image will enlarge to a full size, as with some other forum software. The difference is the image will be centered on where they click on the image at. This is another way that XenForo saves people time from scrolling. If there is a picture of a beautiful beach, but you want to concentrate on the girl in the bikini, then you click the image where the girl in the bikini is and then the full-sized image will pop up, with the girl in the bikini centered.
    "

    The ppl that made VBul 3.0. also worked on XenForo, so you would expect BBcode like so to work:

    uh oh, that didn't work....let me add an asterisk here or there so the image(s) does not get served up:

    The following bbcode:
    Including an image
    [​IMG]
    Resizing the image
    [img=100x50]*https://www.bbcode.org/images/lubeck_small.jpg[/img]
    Making the image clickable (in this case linking to the original image)
    [*url=https://www.bbcode.org/images/lubeck.jpg][​IMG][/url]
    Resizing and adding meta information for the image
    [img width="100" height="50" alt="Lubeck city gate" title="This is one of the medieval city gates of Lubeck"]*https://www.bbcode.org/images/lubeck_small.jpg[/img]

    Since ^above *did* display & allow for a clickable thumbnail, let me try it myself here for practice. Maybe u Mods might learn something new ;p

    If vtac did put limits in, then I will resize using Photoshop to 800 pixel width, as PS probably has better algorithm for resizing than XenForo.

    ^hmm, doesn't display in the actual text window box, but does display the larger image(resized to 800 pixel width by forum software?) on the preview, as 800 pixel width, that you can click on, which gets you the larger image that you need to click on again to go from 800px width, to full size image>not exactly what I'm trying to do yet, but close. vBulletin was easier to do clickable thumbnails, but it is good on XenForo as the forum software *always* resizes to 800pixel width, no matter what the orig image size served up is...avoids that PITA scrowling backNforth you get from a huge image size. Just have to tell ppl to click on the images for the full size, then click on the image again. (image is not very sharp @full res, since

    I'm going to keep trying, see what else can be done with images :-) <LOL, just clicked on the image above, and it takes you right to my account photostream where you can view all of the concentrate pr0n I might be posting to some threads here. Have to figure out how to make the album viewable, yet private to only FC and me...do not think I could do that. Maybe have to use another image sharing host that works differently than Flickr.

    As far as I know, thumbnail support does not exist without using an add-on. vtac does not implement add-ons for his own reasons.

    And if @vtac has his reasons, we are NOT ethically in a position to question this or to try to convince him to change. He has been generous to a fault in providing this forum, and making upgrades where he feels they are warranted. We're conversing right now on his dime! (or on dimes that he manages.)

    Can you link a story with no hint? Why, of course...

    Can you make a spoiler a link?
    Ahhh, yes, but it won't open automaticly. There should be a way. Any ideas?

    I can't find a way. I give up.

    Is there a way to embed media from someplace other than the 6 sites listed?

    "
    You may embed media from the following sites:
    Damnit!

    Well, you can do it that way. Just embed a link.

    Yes, I did. :)

    That IS very cool, tho, that the spoiler tool works just fine in a reply.

    Will one of these disappear?

    Sure as fuck. Something has been changed in the software. Images need to be resized if they are too big, but what the cutoff is I do not know. Does anyone else?

    This is likely the result of recent complaints from folks who pay more for bandwidth.
    --------------------------------------------------

    Nope nope nope. Problem was local not with software. I should have known better... :(
