    PLEASE USE THE ATTACHMENT MANAGER and NOT IMG tags.

    We need to have the images uploaded directly to the site. IMG tags end up as red x eventually which ruins the quality of the forums archives. Also, attachments get thumbnails.

    Ca Now Hosts All User Images For Free

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the interest of preserving images in important threads and throughout the site, Conceptart.org now has an attachment manager set for all registered members. Rather than use your own host, uploading the images to ftp and using IMG tags etc...you may now upload images directly to conceptart.org through the ATTACHMENT MANAGER located below the text input window in the "new thread" or "reply" to thread areas of the site. Quick reply does not show the attachment manager. You must "go advanced" or use the reply or new thread buttons to access it.

    Thanks to the workshop, we are able to afford goodies like this. I hope this makes things a little easier around here as well.

    Cheers!



    Jason Manley

    Exactly Our space would run out really quickly if we did that, and we can't add any captions or further comments below them. It would make our posts less organised...

    ok, go to your first thread and hit "attach file" make sure its no bigger than 100px and 29.3 kb. once you attach it to your first thread it will pop up in the forum

    Okay, the thread thumbnails are really cool, but why the heck can't I attach full pictures inside my threads anymore? I see either links or little thumbs, which is stupid inside the thread as it makes the "don't link to your images" rule rather hypocritical.

    I hope that's a temporary issue that will be resolved, because if not I'm going back to my own hosting. My internet access is slow so I just open up a thread, draw while it loads and then go and enjoy the arty goodness, that doesn't work when I have to click on every separate thing. I'd rather the viewers actually see the stuff without constant clicking.

    No dudes, the thumbnail feature is for thumbnails of art work, not avatars (I just did that 'cos)
    When you make a new post in your sketchbook, and attach your art, the first image you attach in that post will update the small thumbnail beside your thread title.
    Then when you make a new post, and upload more images, again, the first imagie in that post will update the thumbnail next to your sketchbook title in the forum.

    Got it?

    Oh thank goodness, I was getting worried for a moment.

    The thumbnails are pretty sweet though. I'll be too lazy to use them most of the time though

    Lame,,, you have to delete all attachments to see that little thumbnail... so people can't see the improvement anymore... LAME..

    Just make a new selection in the profile section.. works a lot better i think..

    hmmm...thanks for the input...we are still working this out....if it doesnt end up working out we will disable it...however the biggest problem is not whether you can type text next to your images it is the fact that older great threads are now missing images because people clear their ftp spaces and thus ruin the archives of this site.

    we will see if we can find some solutions..thnx for the patience as we grow.

    yeah, having to click every single image just isn't cool, i see where yer comin from though. i wish more of marco djurduevisbiggbogvic's thread still worked, i think some of the images died tho.

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    My biggest beef isn't the thumbnails, but the fact that the larger image opens up in a new window. It's a pain in the ass to click a thumbnail, close it down, click a thumbnail, close it down, blah.

    On the whole, though, I do really appreciate the attachment manager as it keeps me from having to upload to my FTP everytime I want to post an image.

  • d I think a good idea would be to upload the tumbnail itself seperately, if there isnt a way to go around it easy otherways.

    However, I already seen two sketchbooks who have used animated gif pictures as for their thumbs... and seriously if all 60 sb's that is on first page gonna start jump around and move, i prefer whatever other forum... please
    dont make this happned...

    Heya,

    Any particular reason that only a portion of the sketchbooks are showing the thumbnail? I'm curious if I attached my images incorrectly...

    Thanks,
    ~Shane

    Oregano: I had the same problem when I first tried it but then I attached my image and pressed the save button under the text instead of the save button under the attach part.. and then it worked..

    so I dont get this at all.. are we not alowd to just Imagetags at all or what? can we attach images and then have an image tag from that picture in the same post?

    It would show the first image of the last post to give a fast visual cue that something has changed.
    Anyway I've just tried it and it doesn´t work anyway. What's more, the images that I've uploaded before using this attachment method don´t show as thumnails but hiperlinks.

    I'm sure they are temporary problems. Good idea!

    This is most certianly not the place for this post but I need to figure this out.

    I want to track my sketchbook post and I can't figure out how to use my user cp to jump to it. Right now I have to siphon through tons of other sketchbooks to find my own to update it...

    I know this is easily fixed so anyone able to enlighten me would roxxor...

    No there's no "find sketchbook" feature.
    Just find it and add it to your browser favourates.
    You can "subscribe" however, which will email you every time someone posts in your sketchbook...

    Peace

    Another way to do it that you can do in CP: Edit your signature to have your sketchbook url in it and then you can go to the last place you remember posting and click on your sketchbook link that will be at the bottom of your post. This is actually more work than the way Cartoon Fox says to do it, but if you've got Norton, it saves you from being hassled by a computer program about something getting added to your favorites when you added it on purpose. I hate that personally.
