Hello guys!

Hi, I installed this mod and do not let me select External Images, I select it but change only Internal Images.

Could you send me access to your ACP? I never got this error.

1. Does this mod require any hacks (edits of IPS files) ?

2. Are the thumbs created by resizing the image to a new smaller image, or by adding width and height attributes to the original image?

Ad 1 - unfortunatelly yes - if IPS will allow add new form items into forums edit then I'll try do this without edits.
Ad 2 - by adding.

This mod is for 3.x series.

Great work!
Im interested in buying but I just want to know what is happening when type of image is set to internal and there are only external images in post? Is thumbnail than generated with external image?

And one more... Does the image keep proportions after resizing or it fit in given width and height?

I hope u understand what I am asking :)

Open file: admin/applications/forums/modules_public/forums/forums.php

if ( $dp3_settings['adt_enable'] AND in_array( $this->memberData['member_group_id'], explode(',', $dp3_settings['adt_groups'] ) ) )

Change to:

if ( $dp3_settings['adt_enable'] AND in_array( $this->memberData['member_group_id'], explode(',', $dp3_settings['adt_groups'] ) ) AND count( $topic_ids ) )

I don't understand what is meant by INTERNAL image? What are they exactly?

Can this be set up automatically use the original posters PROFILE PICTURE?

EXTRA CREDIT: Could it be made to allow the poster to select a thumbnail from their Gallery (4.01)?
