Default Members' Gallery

After much mucking about with templates and so forth I've managed to institute a picture gallery. You can read about how to post your pictures in the instructions under BB Rules.

Because this method uses the Attachment to Message method there are some oddities about what you can and can't do, for example you can't post a message with the picture but you can post a message to the thread. So, when posting a picture all forum users will see is the Thread Title. Keep this short and sweet or it will be truncated in the Gallery view.

NOTE: If you want to add a comment to the picture, post the picture and then add a Reply to the thread you have created with all the picture details in it.

There is a limit to the disk space that this forum can occupy so the Gallery will be the first to be pruned if that limit is reached. It will be pruned on a first in, first out basis.

Any attachments to normal message posts will also add to this disk space overhead. So I would rather you all continued to keep images in your Main Forum message posts on your own, or free picture, websites and use the <IMG> </IMG> tags either side of the picture's web address to display it in posts instead of using the attachment method.

I hope you all find the Gallery useful.
