would be great to have a screenshot or a description of your personal use of the script... because for now... vague!
(there is no such tool in the db right now, so it's a good thing to have this, but!)

Is this secure? IE what's the chances of someone manipulating it to upload php files?

cool idea! add this to the "add watermark" hack and it could be a great way to advertise your site!

Great idea! The only suggestion I would have would be to limit users to max total upload size instead of number of uploads.

I'd like this merged as awards, or with the Ushop hack. Would be nice.

Good job coding, but couldn't this bring a hosting account down quickly?

I think if someone hosted an 800KB file and then linked to it on a busy forum in their signature, your bandwitch would be gone in no time.

10GB/800KB=12500 Downloads or displays to use 10GB of bandwidth.
12500/50=250 Downloads or displays each for 50 users to use up 10GB bandwidth.

This is the extreme, but as you can see it adds up fast. This will make the hosts that offer unlimited BW for $8.00 cringe I bet!

On the other hand, limiting pics to 64K...
10GB/64KB=156250 Downloads or displays to use 10GB of bandwidth.
That is alot more views per 10GB, but certainly possible to use up.

Ok, I'll put the calculator away now.

Have you seen the usage go up on your site with remote hits to the database to retrive the images? I'm wondering if this would be a great front end for uploading to a folder via php and just using a url for the link eliminating the DB calls for the vB backend and image retrival. You'd have all the security for uploading and managing images and none of the DB overhead on displays or storage.

Just some thoughts to consider.

Cheers!

Another reason to limit upload file size instead of number of uploads. I think that the increase in bandwidth should be expected with this sort of hack, as with any other image hosting or gallery script would. Although it would be great if some sort of bandwidth limit or vB's built-in server load limit could be integrated with this hack.

Also, what dependable host offers true unlimited bandwidth for $8?

Great addition. I will install on my test board to check it out.

He says that you can restrict number of uploads as well as file size so in effect you can limit the amount of space each user has. If you don't have the bandwidth then you shouldn't be offering this hack to all your users anyway.

If you want to offer this for your board but are afraid of crazy bandwidth usage, I see from his screenshot that this has a separate admin selectable folder for the images. You can easily just disable hot linking via .htaccess for that folder.

Again, nice hack sir and I look forward to new developments.

I think you missed the point of my suggestions. It's all good though, if it works, don't fix it.

i have a suggestion for your subsequent versions. You should make these images moderatable before they go live.
