[img] and local image

Post by BossDK » Fri Feb 16, 2007 1:10 pm

Hi all,

I hope one of you might be able to help me out. In phpbb 2.0.18 you were able to link to a local server path with in the bbcode [img] tag, and the parsing of the tag would turn out fine.

Code: Select all

[img]/images/smilies/icon_question.gif[/img]
In my copy of Olympus beta 5, however the parsing bypasses the tag, redering a lot of converted posts image less.... does anyone have a solution for this??

[img]/images/smilies/icon_question.gif[/img] <-- neither on this board :(

Thanks!

Image <-- works for me.. maybe because you are trying to access a forbidden area of your forum. try checking on your .htaccess

As a last resort, I suppose you could get around this by using the word filter to turn common paths (eg /images/smilies/) into http://domain.com/images/smilies/

I haven't used the word filter recently on Olympus and maybe things are different now, but it should work.

The "word filter" can be disabled by users (if the admin allows it) so some people would have broken paths. :|
Don't give me my freedom out of pity!

That won't work,
For example, a post that contains:

Code: Select all

/path/to/images/image.gif
/path/to/another/image/image.gif
/path/to/gallery/image.gif
If we setup three new word filters:

Code: Select all

/path/to/images/    --> http://domain.com/path/to/images/
/path/to/another/image/* --> http://domain.com/path/to/another/image/
/path/to/gallery/*             --> http://domain.com/path/to/gallery/*
Those will output as:

Code: Select all

/path/to/images/image.gif
http://domain.com/path/to/another/image/.gif
http://domain.com/path/to/gallery/*.gif
So using the word filter will not work.

But let me test something here...
[img]/styles/subSilver/imageset/site_logo.gif[/img]
test2
[img]styles/subSilver/imageset/site_logo.gif[/img]
Hmm, yep, that won't work.

I suppose in the end, you have to consider what you want more; posts containing

Code: Select all

/path/to/images/image.gif
/path/to/another/image/image.gif
/path/to/gallery/image.gif
to stay as is, or converting the images.

So, the only thing i can do is edit all the existing posts coutaining local posts... That's not going to be pretty and im sure a lot of phpbb2 user will get very annoyed about this, once Olympus is released ...

(editing my own post, that is not the initial thread one 5 minutes after original post time, do I recieve a post edited tag??)
