BBCode & Php Image Links

Post by Techit »

Alright there everyone,

Right i have a slight problem, ive tried to edit the bbcode myself and ive also tried to search on the site if its already been asked on this forum but the search is down.

Anyway, is there anyway to allow a url like this:
http://www.swiftowners.co.uk/modules/ga ... alNumber=1

to display as an image?

Cheers

Couple of things(if that link is your board):

1) That is "Nuke which is not supported here

2) In stock phpbb, .php images are not allowed as it is a security risk

Any info or advice you get here may well mess up your 'Nuke board, or take it down completely.

Best advice is to seek support from the 'Nuke forums, or where you got your board from.

Ok then.

Stock phpbb has restricted the images to .gif .jpg and .png.

Using a php file someone could insert a script and compromise your board. There are ways to do it, and workarounds, but you have to do some digging.

Here's a link to another discussion about this:
