Plugin allow-images.php, how do I get it to work?

  • I am trying to figure out how to allow people to embed images and flash code in our forums.

    I came across the allow-images.php plug-in, and installed it in “bb-plugins” and “my-plugins” under the forum directory.

    I then went to admin and activated the plug-in.

    What I can’t figure out is how to get it to work. I can’t figure out how one inserts an image still, or if what I installed and activated actually made a difference.

    Once I get this resolved, I will move on to allowing embedded flash objects.

    thank for helping…

    You just type in a complete image tag, the full html, and it should work. Like this:

    <img src="" />

    The plugin was sort of particular about the case of the file extensions; JPG did not work (IIRC) but jpg did. Also, some image hosting services that show images but don’t have an image extension on the URI won’t work with the plugin. The plugin looks for filenames ending in common image formats and allows those.

    Also, the image needs to already be on the Internet already, hosted somewhere. If that’s not possible for your users, then you probably want the bbPress Attachments plugin:



    I’ve added a new plugin as allow-images is now deprecated:

    get it from here :



    forget my last post. I’ve updated the allow-images plugin instead of creating a new one.
