Can’t get “Allow Images” to work???

  • Hi Guys!

    Not having any joy with this either??

    Followed the brief instructions, copied the php into plugins and tried my own image test <img src=”bla/bla.gif” />

    .. but no joy!

    What am i doing wrong?

    All the best,

    Cal :)

    What is the actual code you are using to get an image into your post? Post it here in backticks (upper left of most keyboards, beneath the ESC key.) Does it look like this?

    <img src="" />

    Or, how about a link to your forum so someone can try it out.

    I have it exactly as you have above, a typical HTML Image Tag! … I even tried bbCode in desperation, but no joy either way.

    I uploaded the “allow-images.pgp” to the plugin directory on my FTP, so I wonder if I am missing some other procedure out, that I’ve overlooked?

    When you activated it on the admin plugins page, did it throw any errors?

    If I am following this correctly, I’ve created a directory in my bbPress route directory called “my-plugins” and placed the “allow-images.php” in that folder (both locally and uploaded with FTP)

    I’ve even Ctrl-F5’d my forum .. with no joy!

    Stuck! ;(

    DING!!!! … I feel like an idiot now, that’s exactly what I forgot to do. Too busy trying to get the coding/FTP side of things right, I completely forgot to activate it.

    Thank You so much!


    Sometimes the simple things elude us :)

    Okay, now that I have my appetite back, can I manipulate the “allow-images.php” to restrict images to a certain width/scaling?

    I know I could simply post with “width=250” on the image tag, but in order to make it easy for members, I’d like to do all the hard work for them.
