Help needed for showing thumbnail pics here.
« on: April 30, 2009, 03:54:44 PM »
I have found the options thingy in photobucket, that allows the user (me) to select to show [IMG] as a thumbnail, and when clicked on, it goes to full size...

But when I click on a thumbnail in one of my posts, it goes to my photobucket album that allows the viewer (you) to see everything !!

How do I stop this ability to see all my stuff (other than posting nothing)

Cheers

Barny, have you marked your photobucket account as 'private'.

If you have you will still see your other photos because you are logged in the same as you can see your email letter here but no one else can.  Does that sound right?

Hey prim - thanks for answering my question about the email address!

ANd thanks for the heads up with the PB problems - I thought that may have been the problem but I was sure enough to make that comment

Hi Ewok, I can't even remember the email question, I have been back and forth to so many posts I am getting dizzy. Usually most answers have already been given by the time I get there, but I have read a lot of 'em.

Isn't it nice to post without fear. I never ponder what I am going to say here. I think that even if I did say the wrong thing I would just get a gentle nudge, not a slap hard enough to get a pink botty LOL

I think I might have it...

I have been logged in to photobucket during all this testing..

Now I have logged out, it still goes to photobucket, instead of just showing the full sized image, but at least nothing else is visible.

But it still isn't working as I have seen others doing it here...

I'm really confuddled about this

Cheers

Prim,

I have seen other members post thumbnail size that you click on, and it then shows the image full size, but appears not to go to photobucket.

But when I post a thumbnail and you click on it, it then logs into photobucket and shows the full size image in my PB album.. like this



Click on image to enlarge

What do you see ???

Cheers

Barny, is your query that it is showing a background of your photobucket as well as your photo. If it is I think I can help.

Exactly Prim,

I would prefer that nothing to do with photobucket shows, even though the pic is hosted there.

Barny, Yesterday Wheels posted

Use the code under the title "Bulletin Boards/Forums"

I don't have that wording in my photobucket and the one I use does the same as yours, gives me the photobucket background. We might have to wait until Wheels come back online. sorry I could not help further.

I'm baack! 'Live' Help at your service  :D

If you use photobucket, you can choose to upload a clickable thumbnail pic instead of the full size pic.

Just go to Link Options at the bottom of the 4 link choices, click, and then select the thumbnail link under IMG for Bulletin Boards/Forums

full size


clickable thumbnail


OR

you can attach a pic without going through photobucket and it will appear as a clickable image. Click on Additional Options (to the bottom left) of this message box and attach.

If you only want a thumbnail from photobucket, barny. Right click on the image, click "properties" then copy & paste the URL in properties.

Barny, maybe you should write a How To guide and get the Countess to pin it because as the site grows we will have to try and keep pic sizes to a minimum

Wheels, are you sure you are "Live help" ?

I mean positively sure? Is there not a possibility you are a typeface activated bot who then searches the universe for correct answers then posts the relevant response?
