Free onboard Image Hosting - "photobucket" for your board.
Mod Version: 1.00, by Max Taxable (Coder/Designer) Max Taxable is offline

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 15
Released: 01 Feb 2014 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Supported Template Edits  

Should be same install on any vBulletin board, versions 3.0 and up to 3.8.7. I have not tried this yet on vBulletin 4 and up.

This uses NO:
  • Plugins
  • Auto template
  • Files to upload (except one icon image)
  • DB changes

Take a test drive here:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Simply go to any thread and have a look at quick reply and click the icon.




I've had this "hack" on my board for a few years and recently installed it on a couple other fellas boards and decided it was time to share the secret. Have your own image hosting tool that is independent of 3rd party ones that like to block hotlinking and take images down after awhile.

The software used is by another author and is not my code. The template edits to integrate it to your vBulletin installation however, is.

First of all go to: http://codefuture.co.uk/projects/imagehost/ and download the free image hosting software.

Upload this package to root level of your server using a clever name for the folder, like "imagemagic" or something related to your board's topic. For a baseball board recently, I styled this "picturecatcher."

You should now be able to use and administer this by going to the URL, yourboard.com/yournameforthis

Once it is installed and working and you have done the setup and configuration to your liking, it is time to integrate this to your board. The best place to do this is in the WYSIWYG editors and the quick editors throughout.

Use "Search In Templates" to find all templates that have the word "separator" or "separator.gif" in them. This will populate the list of all the editor templates in your style. The list looks like this:



And you want to edit the templates you see in red, above.

In these templates find:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And add after that:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You'll want to experiment with this, as not all styles have the same templates for the editors. But most do.

Upload this image to your server at location / and style it "uploadimage.png."



Do this edit for each template indicated on the populated list above that are in red.

The result is, every member who is logged in will see the icon in the posting editors and on click, will give them a popup with the uploader loaded and ready for their images. You and your members will see this in your editors:



And that's it! The uploader itself is very user friendly and intuitive, not much different at all from photobucket, ImageShack, or any other image hosting feature including vBulletin's own attachment uploader. So your membership should have no problems with it.


I posted all images in this post, using this very same image uploader, on my board! So as you can see it can be used anywhere to post images. There are also links provided after upload, for direct sharing, email sharing, and so on.

Enjoy!

Sweet!
First thought ...How to set up so that only members can use it?
... so that unregistered can not view script pages?

That's built in, if you do not allow visitors to post they won't see the editor and therefore won't see the button for this - not even if viewing the script via page source reader..

You can also put a <if> conditional on the button, so they won't see it if you do allow visitors to post.

I was thinking about search engines finding and indexing it...also if the URL is known.

I have it set up on 4.2.2 p1 but trying to figure out the editor button as the only two templates I have found so far are...


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This is all the code

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


As far as the button ...it's probably ...totally different but could the button be set up as a custom bbcode?
Perhaps, I know the answer to that but I thought I throw it out there...LOL...need sleep

I've never installed this in a version 4 vBulletin so I must defer to others who have more experience with it - stay tuned.

Hi,

I have uploaded the files as per the instructions, however when I go to the URL to do the initial install all I get is a blank screen.

Any ideas?

D.

You can install this on any host you use. Doesn't have to be the same one the board is hosted on.

That sounds awesome, thanks, will give it a try.

Cheeky request, but I have this mod at the moment - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123481 and it automatically inserts the links into the post without having to copy and paste, any chance you would be able to incorporate that feature into this mod?

Does the user still has control over the images he uploaded? Can he delete the image afterwards?
