How to add each forum image!?

Post by kittykatt » Wed Nov 12, 2008 2:37 pm

I would like to add an IMG to each forum .

Forum image:
Location, relative to the phpBB root directory, of an additional image to associate with this forum.

But i have tried to upload on a different site and add it but its not working.
I would like to know where or what I should do to add my forum images, please.

It says relative to the forum URL, so it has to be on your server :)

Let's say you upload to images to images/forums/, then you would enter ./images/forums/forumimage.gif in the field.

Forum icons are adding the forum management.

You can upload the png, gif or jpg where ever you like as long as you put the right path in.

For simplicity, lets say you call it icon.gif and put it into the images folder.

Put the path in as
images/icon.gif

It has to be somewhere on the dogs-world.org site. It does not matter which folder.

Hi. I hope I'm not intruding but I too am having the same difficulties, but when I followed the guidance from above, all I got when I checked the forum was a blank rectangle where an image should be, with a red circle which has a red line running diagonally through it. The image I'm looking to place is on my server, in my images folder. This is quite frustrating and has annoyed me on and off for several months. Can the support team consider producing a few more flash tutorials for some of these setting we're able to access, including one for forum images please?

Thanks :)

Hi Kevin :)

Here is the link:

http://upstaterenegadeproductions.com/m ... c9234578fc

If you scroll down to; Marguerite Maria Rivas on Sensitize you can see. I'm thinking this is something completely lame and related to the size of the image. All I need are tiles, preferably clickable tiles of images made from the artist's own photographs and which they have agreed I can use.

I would appreciate any/all guidance in this.

Thanks again :)

The address it's linked to is

Code: Select all

http://upstaterenegadeproductions.com/messageboard/http://www.upstaterenegadeproductions.com/Images/shots_by_marguerite_m_rivas/Sunset_Lake_Vermont_2009_by_Marguerite_Maria_Rivas_All_rights_reserved.jpg

That's obviously wrong as you have a second http:// in the middle.

You need to put it in to the messageboard/images folder.

Then the link for the admin panel would be

Code: Select all

images/shots_by_marguerite_m_rivas/Sunset_Lake_Vermont_2009_by_Marguerite_Maria_Rivas_All_rights_reserved.jpg
Or just put the image itself into /images and then it would be

Code: Select all

images/Sunset_Lake_Vermont_2009_by_Marguerite_Maria_Rivas_All_rights_reserved.jpg

Hi Kevin :)

I followed your guidance from above and thanks to you, I now know all about messageboard images because I've become aware of:

http://www.upstaterenegadeproductions.c ... avatar.jpg

However, it's still not displaying and that's a compressed image (151 x 101 / 13.2kb) shot. I've even tried purging the cache but still, nothing.

I'm sure it's something simple and most probably a mistake at my end lol :lol:

Can you think of what I could possibly be doing wrong please Kevin and team?

Best wishes and thanks :)

What exactly have you typed in to the forum image field?

I just pasted the entire link in. I believe I've assumed it was just like posting a link to an image for profile pics. Am I wrong?

I'm also really confused by your examples from above. When I look at them here I see the words 'CODE: SELECT ALL' - yet haven't got a clue where I find that in my admin control panel (ACP) or edit forum's selections.

Sorry for the confusion. Can you please assist further because I'm clearly missing what you're saying and I accept that this is my fault.

Thanks again mate :oops: ...

admin panel
general
manage forums
click the green cog icon to edit the forum you want.

What is in the forum image field for that forum. That's what's incorrect.
