    Right now it's up to you, which resizing you like better, but in the long run external hosting is gonna hurt you.
    The platform SRP uses is going to continue changing, and with those changes things will continue to get broken.
    The closer you stay with the current platform the better chance that what you post will carry with the evolution of the software.

    The very reason for this thread illustrates the point - vbulletin is poorly maintaned by the developers to the point that security issues are being fixed by disabling vbulletin features.

    Navigate to where the file is on my computer and double click it (or click Open)
    Click Upload
    Click Insert Inline
    Click done

    I need to ensure my insertion point is at the location I want the picture to go, or else then copy and paste the HTML code
    (i.e. [ ATTACH=CONFIG]12345[/ATTACH ]) to where I want the picture. However, these days the Insert Inline and Done buttons donít work. So after doing the above, I need to close the File Upload Manager and click the little paper clip icon. The picture will be listed there and the HTML code
    (i.e. [ ATTACH=CONFIG]12345[/ATTACH ]) is then inserted.

    I'm not sue what you mean by the box with four dots.

    I'm thinking I'm over thinking all this now and making an issue out of nothing. I do hope I'm not starting to become annoying

    [EDIT] I get what you mean, you're using the Insert Image button. It worked when I used that and chose Basic Uploader. I'm not sure why I even used to go the other method now. I guess it's problem solved, thanks cudurunner!
    As I use the full site from my phone and I am essentially a ludite this is what I have always done, and generally it works, though it is a bit slow to upload sometimes.

    Try the basic uploader I find it works OK. Can you see either of the pictures in your post?

    Although I have been responsible for SOTD photos that have "gone walkabout", it was because I had them linked from what was my own domain; when personal finances could no longer allow the $110/year, I had to forgo that particular vanity -- so, too, the linked photos; however, that was on a different shaving forum, so I don't quite feel "their" pain.

    Having said that, I tend to believe that Photobucket has a greater financial stability than me, and I don't worry about my photos suddenly disappearing (of course, I have "zee negatives"). Other than as a workaround for arbitrary resizing of uploaded photos, linking a photo by URL from any external site has another advantage: if/when it becomes necessary to edit or modify a source photo, changes become immediately visible on all sites linking to it. Managing photos on vBulletin is more challenging; at least, for me.

    It's not a matter of financial stability, but of interface/policy changes both with the external and with SRP. But as I said you do these at your own risk - I personally host everything on SRP.

    Possibly there were simply still uploading. What was the time difference between uploading and them appearing? Which post was it?

    Anyway, I checked out my 'old' method of posting photos using the 'Go Advanced' and 'Manage Attachments' options and it appears it now works fine, so I guess all is fixed.
