it's working now for me. This is the same image I tried loading last week that didn't work.
Good deal.

Yes! The only glitch is that, even when the pictures upload, pressing the "Load More Images" button results in the " There are no albums for this user." error message.
I can't believe I missed this one. I think I have it fixed now. Clicking "Upload More Images" should take you back to the upload form.

Is there a way to link to the entire album itself, instead of inserting single pics?
At the risk of confusing some users who just want to include an image in a Forum post, we've added this functionality. When you're logged in and viewing one of your albums--other than your Private album--you'll see a "Direct Link" which you can use to link to a visitors' page where someone can view the album even if they aren't a Forum user or logged in. It should work pretty well for showing off a car you want to sell, for example.

Once at the visitors' page for the album, it's possible to view a list of all a user's albums by clicking on their hyperlinked username, or to view individual images by clicking on the image. The visitors' page uses regular URLs, so all the pages are direct links. Here's an example link to 1969eliminator's 1969 Eliminator Restoration so you can see how it works.

I found a bug in the Gallery that came up when you tried to add some PNG images. If you encountered the bug, you would have seen a success message after adding the image, then if you tried to view the image, you'd get a "File Not Found" message and no link for the image.

I just fixed the bug, so you should be able to upload PNGs now. The Gallery will convert them to JPGs, which take up far less space, and all will be good. If you had PNG images fail, take a look in the album you added them to and see if the images are there now. If so, you're good to go; if not, I added the ability to delete a "File Not Found" image. You can just delete any "File Not Found" images and try again with much better (I hope) results.

HMM,
Trying to add a test pic when I was down in DC a few weeks ago. All I did was make a link, and a small pic is the best that I could do. Seemed easy to attach the pic but not getting it full size in the post. Obviously missing doing something.

Yes, you are missing out on how this works. You might want to read the walkthrough here. Basically, you're using the URL for the image instead of putting the image link in CCCGallery tags, which would look something like this, though the numbers will vary based on the image you pick:

Code: Select all
