The forums are more or less a spot to post the pictures, we highly advise using smugmug, creating a album, and linking the pictures with [img] tags.

 

 

We could allow multiple file uploads although that would just take us closer and closer the the allotted webspace, and by hyperlinking images it reduces load times big time for us and limits us from hitting our hosting limits.

 

vBulletin is not coming back so ya gotta let it go... 

I know..

Could we get an official Smugmug info thread? I was under the impression Tom or another admin has to create an album. If that's not the case it would be great to have more info on expectations and privileges.

Hey guys, 

 

Yes, we have smugmug with Unlimited* uploads, java uploader pager (browser) etc.. Not widely used and at this point I'm going in and building galleries and posting links... I have a 
postit" on my todo list to build a bunch of albums (old and new) and will do this evening.  Going forward, if we adopt the use of smugmug more we can look into better protocols for making the uploads easier...

 

If the gripe is the same ol' vBulletin vs. whateverthisis... I'm not your guy ;-)

 

In the mean time...

Are we able to make albums ourselves or just you/admins?

So that still takes way too long. The end result is far to many steps to upload pictures. Bummer. Thats the main reason i dont upload a lot of the stuff i take. Im sure im not the only one.

Using imgur... or Photobucket does not take that much time -_-

 

Step 1 - Upload to Imgur

Step 2- Click copy

Step 3- Hit Paste

 

If I had to recommend any host it'd be IMGur. Extremely easy and fast to use.

Smugmug is just as easy, I'm pretty sure you can just drag and drop the whole folder and it will upload them

Nick,

 

I just uploaded two test images (Tom: pls delete) and it took three clicks and less than 1.5 seconds ....

 

1. Click on link provided

2. Click "browse"

3. Click photos to select (or "select all") -- alternatively select and drag your images

4. Upload

 

Go for coffee while it happens if you have that many photos ...

 

Not sure how much quicker and easier it can be ....

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

I know graeme, but then you need to link back to them in your posts. If I didn't care about putting them in a post I would simply upload them all to my own Picasa album. As I'm sure some would agree having to upload pictures one place and then link back to them in another to actually have them appear in a post is somewhat cumbersome. The technology to make it less cumbersome has been around for many many years which is why I don't see the point. It's probably more of a frustration for me because I used to own a vBulletin forum where this very feature was open to all members. In today's world of hosting storage is ridiculously cheap so I don't really buy the running out of storage argument as being pertinent any longer. Even if this were a feature that was only available to NCLR members who are current on their membership dues that would be okay with me.

We're extremely close to the allotted space, although the MAIN reasoning to having the members post from smugmug or a imagehost is solely that having hyperlinked images from a host that is specific to image hosting is a hell of a lot faster load times all around for the site and forum. As well as smugmug reached out and worked with tom in regards to having our club use them and get access to their software and storage space at no cost, so we should take advantage of that.

 

This forum software allows multiple media uploads, although we have the simple up loader currently enabled so it limits it to users engaging one attachment at a time and mainly used for PDF, Trip schedules, etc... 

 

The vBulletin the club was previously running was four years outdated from the actual current vBulletin that was available at the time and had numerous sql and security vulnerability's... and currently the new vBulletin is way too expensive and did not meet our requirements for what we wanted with the new website. 

 

I get that our requested method can be annoying to some, although for the time being its simply the best route for the website overall imo...

We're one major reference version behind on IP.Board.  In IPS Suite 4 they have drag and drop file uploading.

 

Anyway, something we can investigate updating to.
