View Full Version : Image Display Problem

22-12-2006, 12:13
I am a new subscriber (as of today, yay!!), but very experienced vBulletin user.

One of the primary reasons I decided to purchase my subscription (other than the fact that AT is just too darn cool) was to be able to view images directly.

I have looked my control panel options page. The "Show Images" button is checked, so that's not the problem.

I have logged out and back in, and also closed my browser completely and logged back in, with no change. I still get the box with text in it that I have to click to see images, or in the case of IMG tags, just see the URL.

Any suggestions?

Additional attempt to diagnose problem ... different computer, different browser (now on firefox) still no pics.

Also, should the GUI control panel be showing on the reply screen?

Are you trying to view images directly in a post?

For example:

Text text text text text


Text text text

I believe that's only available if the original poster intended it to be viewed that way. I could only remember one post that worked like that: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=70257

I know being a subscriber, let's you add an image to your post, but I always do that as an attachment.

In my experience, under vBulletin both attached images and inline images (using the IMG bbCode tags) should display the image.

I moderate boards using vBulletin and administrate and moderate in phpBB.

I'm stumped for the time being.


using IMG tags

(edit to add: I cannot see either image)

Hi blackstormhawk,

[ IMG ] code (http://www.tarotforum.net/misc.php?do=bbcode#imgcode) is off in most forums here, so that threads will be mostly text and download quickly. Images will appear as a link, or can be posted as an attachment, rather than being embedded in the thread itself.

You can also see if [ IMG ] code is on or off in a particular forum by checking the 'Posting Rules' box in the bottom left of the page.

So I shouldn't see images at all, whether they are posted as attachments or by using IMG tags?

No, an image won't appear directly embedded in a thread, but you can still view it by clicking on the link or the attachment.
