Displaying a CopperMine photo in a phpbb post

Post by Vegas Joanne »

Hi all,

I have installed CopperMine on my server and am having a problem trying to figure out how to display a photo within a phpbb 2.0.21 post.

Here's what I tried: I displayed a photo in Coppermine then captured the URL. I then copied that URL into a post using the [ img ] tag. After looking at the URL a bit closer it because obvious that it was a valid link to the coppermine page, but not a valid link to an image. I want the users to be able to have the photo right in the post (like what the Smartor mod provides).

Is there a mod that will allow "in-line" photos using CopperMine?

I would have used the Smartor mod, but the apparent lack of support scared me away from it. I don't want to be using obsolete software that may quit working when my host upgrades php or mysql.
