  • One thing I hate about these forums . . .

    One thing that really bugs me about the miller forums, and maybe you can help me fix the issue (assuming it is fixable). I hate having to open every single one of the links to the pictures.

    Firefox and IE both have the same issue. Anyone have a way around this (to show all the photos inline without having to open them)?

    I am tired of having to click on
    link to pic 1
    link to pic 2
    link to pic 3

    and so on.

    Use a hosting site like Photobucket, Tiny Pic, etc. I'm no computer whiz & I figured it out. Pretty self explanatory, just size the pic for the application, upload it & copy/paste to the post your are making.

    Easy.

      My browser shows the pics the way that they were entered in the response. If they were entered with the [img]...........[/img] tags then they show as the pic, but if they were loaded as a link then the link shows. I load my pics to the site so if I happen to break the link from Picassa or photo bucket, my pic still shows.

      I type the img code since one of my other sites shows pics like Welding Web and shows a thumbnail that you still have to click on if it was loaded with the insert img tab. Its a few more key strokes but not a real big issue.

        The reason this is done this way in so many forums is download speeds are not equal. Someone like myself who has fiber optic to the home, I can watch you tube videos with no buffering, it is a pain in the butt to click to see an image. However a lot of people still have a dial up or slow DSL internet connection. When the photos are loaded up with the thred the time they have to spend waiting for the download is horrendous.

        It's a pain in the butt for us. But it's an absolute nightmare for them.

          Dial-up SUCKS but for some of us, it's as good as it gets, nothing else is available.

            I wonder if there is a firefox plugin that will open up all hyperlinked images. I thought I found one, but it doesn't work with the latest version of firefox.
