    Adding pictures hosted elsewhere

    There have been a lot of issues today with people trying to post pictures and violating the limit and then trying to post the link to photobucket.

    When you click the picture to paste in the image URL, there is a box that is checked that says "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" ... I think this means it is trying to upload the picture to here which then violates the limit again. Is there a way to make that box default to UNchecked? ... if that is indeed what the box means.

    I will look into this more.......and send an email over to Jason, however.......

    I do not think it is possible to do this without re-writing the code of the software. I do believe however it is possible to do away with the "attachment" button that is currently there now, and change it to one that adds the [IMG] code instead.

    I think I fixed it. Please try again and see if it defaults off now.

    Yup, defaults off now ... that should help with some of the confusion.
    I was telling Lee that we need to update a tutorial on how to host and post pictures before the summer rush.
