I'm actually holding off on the reply because the answer is going to depend on something else I'm working on. The images are uploading to an Amazon S3 (think cloud) account but I might not keep it that way so don't want to send you in the wrong direction yet :)

K...basically, in order to post an image to any forum one needs the actual link to the image so it can be used to show it. A lot of images on the internet you can just right click on it and you can copy the link address. Right now if you right click on an image in the new albums you create it won't give you an image address...has to do with a couple things in the design. The way to get the image address if you go to your profile and click on the name of your album (not the picture of it) so it opens up into a view of the individual pictures you uploaded into the album. On each picture is a little gear(settings) and if you open that it will show an open for "view original". If you click on that the image opens up and the url in your address bar (or you can right click here as well) will give you the address.

Code: Select all

It's currently a tradeoff between how the albums/photos work and taking an extra step to get the url of the image. Might work on that later but that's how you get it for now.
