    The test thread

    A thread to experiment with functionality. Feel free to test stuff out here yourself.

    how did you add the photo? Did you first have to upload it to a remote server, and the put the whole URL in? Or did you get a way to get the WYSIWYG editor to upload the photo to the forum?

    I took this one from one of the photo albums on my personal profile - at http://www.theforumsa.co.za/forums/p...=1&pictureid=8

    If you follow the link (as a member you've got access) you will see below the picture two link codes - the ordinary URL I've used here, and the BB image code version which lets you see the image inline as in the first post.

    What is interesting is that because the image comes from member only content, only members can see that image. If you're not logged in, the image doesn't show.

    is that what you were testing? I thought you were testing a way to easily add images.

    P.S. I don't see the code? Only a photo?

    If you ever want to check the BB code used for a post, just hit the Quote button and look at what's in the quote tags

    Here is an interesting twist. The photo shows up in the RSS feed. Now the RSS feed is supposed to show open-to-public content only. It certainly only shows public threads.

    Another odd little bug to report to the development team at vBulletin.

    Maybe you only get the code below the photo for stuff from your own profile.

    SoftDux, (or anyone else feeling like playing) - try uploading a photo in a photo album for your profile. I'd like to check if this is an Admin related permission feature, or something designed to specifically give the profile owner the information.

    OK. Just in case anyone is wondering, all you put in is the video number between the tags - as in D60yjEbQnDg in the following URL
