IMAGE THUMBNAILS

Post by Buddha01 on April 11th 2012, 6:32 pm

Hi

i have images hosted on Photobucket. i have the full sized image and a smaller thumbnail version of each image also hosted on photobucket.

Is there a way i can create a post on my forum thread whereby the images are shown in a table form showing the thumbnail versions which can then be individually clicked on to rediret/link to or open up the full sized version of the image?

The thumbnail version would be displayed as suggested in a table form with lets say 5 or so images or more horizontally by x amount of images vertically.

I have been trying but cannot get anything which seems to work.

I would appreciate any help and any appropiate code.

Hmmm... I don't think you can use it in posts (would to be possible only in HTML pages, templates). Smile

dose it matter if it opens on the same page.
You can always use thumbnails from image host like imagebam, then when you click the image it will open full size/redirect to thire page to view. http://www.imagebam.com/


Other then that you do have the option to resize images on your forum, then it will enlarge full size when clicked.

Im not really bothered if the larger image opens up in seperate window as long as i can place thumbnails in a table form i.e rows and columns which open to the larger version when the thumbnail is clicked.

Alternatively if this cant be done you say it can be achieved by resizing images on forum? I apologise but im kinda new and getting to grips with the forums. Would appreciate if u explained where and how this was done.

Thanks for the help so far too Wink

Thanks alot!!! Tried the image resize but obviously this alters all images on the forums even the ones i wanted to remain with the original size so this was an acceptable compromise but not ideal.

Therefore tried imagebam and this was just perfect. Was able to use the ALL BB code to get the effect i wanted.

Thanks again for all the help peeps.

Your welcome,
Well that's the whole idea for the image re-size, all images would be re-sized to the dimensions you choose. But if imagebam works for you then thats cool Smile
