    I just got word that we have an upgrade coming to the site Wednesday.
    • Automatic resizing of pictures
    • BB code parsing
    • Threads started by X user
    You asked for these things and it is obvious that Huddler is listening. We are testing these features now in a sandbox edition of the forum and it should go live sometime tomorrow afternoon.

    Awesome deal on the pic resize issue, its has always been fustrating to have to wait for a post to load due to super giant file size.

    Thanks for listening.

    BTW what is BB code parsing?

    BB code is a code or form of markup language that vBulletin and some other bulletin boards use to format text, display images, etc. The parsing just means this piece of software (Huddler) will be able to look at the BB code and understand it so it can display it properly in HTML.

    Here is a wiki that I found online that explains it a lot better if you are interested:

    I never used Photobucket---Never work right for me.

    I used "TinyURL", until this platform changed. Since that I just use the "insert image" in this box.

    I use photobucket still. I like that I can have one page with all the links ready to cut and paste, and the automatic resizing when I upload the pics.
