viewing photos inside the post

  • I’ve installed 2 plugins which are 1.bbPress Attachments 2.Allow Images on my bbPress site. However, when users attached image files it shows only file name. How do I make the attached image files to be viewable on the post straight away? Please advice?

    Thank you very much.

    The allow images plugin is the one you need (the attachments one just allows attachments to posts).

    Did you activate it?

    People will need to have the image posted somewhere before they can insert it into their post. It can be a flickr URL, Photobucket, ImageShack, Picasa, whatever, so long as the image is publicly available on the Internet. Once the image is accessible on the Internet, they just need to insert the HTML to embed the image. the img tag will look like this:

    <img src="" />

    If you post a URL to your forum, someone can try it to see what’s happening.

    Thank you very much. I aware of what you are trying to say, but what I meant was after users attached the image file, I’d like the file to be automatically (from my server) shown as an image on the post. Is there any way around it?

    I hope you guys could help me out.

    Thank you for your help :)



    I don’t think the attachment plugin is designed to allow those images to be inserted into the post with the allow images plugin. It could probably be done with a 2 step process.

    1. attach the image.

    2. grab that URL and then insert the image.

    It would be in the thread twice though, which is silly. I think it’s better to have the images stored elsewhere then have people insert them like that, nothing on your server.

    Is there any script that automatically show the attached image file as the image on the post instead of file?

    I hope I’m not bothering you guys.

    Thank you :)



    I don’t believe there is. If you want images embedded in the post, you want the “Allow Images” plugin, not the attachment plugin.
