How do you get your pictures to show in the thread, all I get is links and pics at the bottom in Thumb nails???
I believe it's just the difference between when I am uploading a picture from my phone using the Tapatalk app, or when I'm on my PC and using the Impalas.net site tools for picture uploading.
I noticed that when I use Tapatalk, that the picture seems to still be held in the Tapatalk content-delivery-network within my threads. So, that is in essence, an "externally hosted" picture.
When we use the built-in Impalas.net tools to "manage attachments", the picture gets hosted locally at the Impalas.net server and by default, the thread shows those mini-thumb-nails that have to be clicked on to get the (resized) full view.
Externally hosted pictures, whether they be via Tapatalk, or a Godaddy server location, or any Photo-hosting business, those will all get the full picture display like you noticed from me in this thread.
By the way, since you like pictures, take note that there are ultimate storage limits depending upon when membership you've selected. At some point - you may reach your limit and either need to remove very old ones, or host externally, or compress them before posting, etc.
