Quick question, are you able to send photos via PMs? I think I have tried before and couldn't figure it out. I don't believe there was a "Go Advanced" option when I was sending a PM. Thanks for yalls help

Not in the same way that you'd add a picture to a thread. If you have photobucket, you can use their IMG option to embed the picture in a PM.

In case you don't know what I mean, here's a screenshot. The link outlined in red is the one that'll put the picture directly into the PM. The other options provide a link that will open a browser window/tab to your photobucket library, which will allow the PM's recipient to scroll through the rest of the pictures you have in there.
Attached Images

Sorry, I just can't remember all of the options available in vBulletin, but I don't believe there is any option to allow or disallow attached files along with private messages. Best you can do, as has been suggested, is to use the IMG tag to embed images from a file storage facility directly into your messages.

Syntax would be:

[IMG] ** photo URL ** [/IMG]

Ok, thanks you two. That helps!

By the way, you can use the Photo Gallery here to host photographs, in case you didn't realize that.

Thanks, I have seen the photo gallery but never really thought about what it's used for besides showing off your animals

for the past week every time I try to post a classified, the picture upload comes back with a http 500 error and will not let me. I can embed them, but it does not show a thumbnail on the ad. Is there a way around this?
Old 07-16-2016, 01:10 PM   #19
I haven't heard of this problem from anyone else. And it looks like there have been a goodly number of ads placed here using file attachments within this past week. I also created one of my own to test the functionality ->

So it seems to be working for me. And as far as I can tell, a lot of other people.

Anyone else experiencing this problem?

I'm not familiar with that error; but one of the most common issues people have is the image size being too large
