Hi,

Have you already tried the installation "blog_images_mod"?
I followed all the instructions, but nothing to make the icon is not displayed

If you mean it doesn't show in the admin, then yes. I uploaded the wrong package that never included the icon for the admin.

Download the package again and upload the bbcode icon image provided in the package's admin folder to the "admin/skin/images/" folder.

With a little delay ^^ thanks Maverick it works with the new package.
However, if the module works with your template, this is not the case with PLEXI from KHDEV.
An idea to make it compatible?

Sorry can't offer much help with the PLEXI template by KHDev because I don't have access to the code and unable to view the bbcode icons in the demo.

If the problem is that the icon doesn't appear in the front end it could be a matter of the size of the custom bbcode icon set that he created, and/or the CSS code for bbcodes is different. As mentioned in the instructions .... "If you're using another 3rd party template you will have to create your own to match the icon set they're using."

If you need help with it try posting your problem directly in KHDev's thread for the Plexi template:

Thanks Maverick, I posted a message.
In the meantime I will take a closer look at how he changed the code^^.

I found! It was quite simple in fact, since KHDev had the good idea to fill all the codes of "FontAwesome" in font-awesome.min. css.
More than adding the code in skin_site/def/bootstrap/bbcode.js. And here it is!

It's because bbode images were only coded to accept the HTTP protocol and not the HTTPS protocol.

Download this file ...
http://datemill.com/extras/bog_image_https.zip

and upload the included general_functions.inc.php file and replace it with the one located here ... includes/general_functions.inc.php

This will now allow both the HTTP and HTTPS protocols to be used for bbcode images.

Hi,

There would be a way to upload a photo from a PC rather than from a URL for blogs?

I knew you'd eventually get around to asking this.

I've looked into this a number of times over the years and could never come up with a viable solution.

The problem isn't being able to upload images for blogs, the problem is with managing the images. In order for images to be manageable they would need to be added to an individual user based private photo album that users could access and manage their blog images and do things such as get the URL link code for the image to include in a blog post, and edit or delete images, etc.

For example, say a user uploads an image then decides they want to change the image or if they uploaded the wrong image and instead upload a different one, without the user being able to manage their images ALL images including old or redundant images won't automatically get deleted and will remain on your server.

In order to host images for blogs you would need to develop a special private photo album attached to each user's account where you'd basically be providing image hosting, which would be far too complex and not very practical just for being able to add images to blog posts.

I've researched this rather extensively and found that being able to upload and self-host images for bbcode based blogs and forums has been asked and requested many times across the web. I discovered that most use and recommend exactly what the "Etano blog_images_mod" does, which is adding a link to the image from another source, such as image hosting sites like Imgur, Free Image Hosting, Flickr, etc. Which are far more feature rich and capable of managing photos than what you could provide.

The bottom line is ... not everything is always as simple as one may think.

:D

Indeed, I had not thought about what the server overload problem. Thank you for this essential info and for your reply Maverick.
Therefore, I will let the URL manage the display of hosted images.
