    In vBulletin Mods, there is a mod that will add Forums to your title bar. I think it's called Add Forum to Title Bar, or something like that.

    This helps when a person is finished looking at the new posts, but they want to then post something in a specific Category or sub-category.
    Look at the line below the black print it has

    Pictures can often tell a lot more than words. For example all the above could be replaced with



    Guy there are plenty of free hosting sites on the web. One of the problems with pictures is how long do you keep those posted on a forum and how much server space do you allocate to store pictures on a forum with so many members and quests. I often offer to post pictures for those that can't, the question I am running into is how long do I maintain them before they fill my account.

    That's the issue...you don't HAVE to host any pictures on your server.

    You would click on the Insert Image icon at the top, and then enter the URL of the pic. The pic is then "called" from that URL server when the post is viewed. Problem is: that icon is disabled.
    You can go to spyderchat.com, and click on Community Forums. Go to any thread and you'll see plenty of pics in the posts - and not one is hosted on that server (except for mine as I am the owner of the site). They are called from flicker and other photo-hosting sites.

    This is an example. I was able to post it using vBulletin code: [img]url of picture[/url]

    When you do that you will see


    Click on the symbol beside the SEARCH and it will take you to the full board list.

    I will notify the Admin that the insert photo is not working.

    It would appear, any post with a URL is moderated now. The post above was and I had to go through the process of approving it before it would display.I think they have decided to put the full load on those of us that are active moderators.
