    Hi Krem,

    The problem is that image hosting ended up being a significant cost in running the service for free and so I had to turn it off.

    You can easily use another upload service to add images to, and then just paste the link in your wiki page. This will make it so the image is displayed.

    For an example, view the wiki source of this page:
    http://editthis.info/wiki/Image_example

    If you would be willing to pay a subscription of $5 per month for 100MB of uploads per month to be added to your wiki, feel free to let me know via the bug tracker (http://bugs.editthis.info).

    Thanks,
    Rob

        I think a great name for "Create your own story" would be something like "XXX...AND THEN U" OR "Begins with "Pussy".....& Cock.... the rest....
        is up to you!

        @robkohr It would be great if we could at least link, but with the 20 minute per image cap, it doesn't work. Why? Because, when I put an image link in, then hit save page, it gives me the captcha. Unfortunately, after completing the captcha, it says we can only put one link per 20 minutes...effectively making it so we cannot use pictures at all: Not upload and not link...

        @Solar Dragon - I am sorry that this is a problem. The cost of maintaining image uploads was too much to handle, and I had to shut it off to keep the free service going. For $10 per month I can turn image uploads on for a wiki and provide 1GB of space.

        Okay now, removing uploads was stupid. Images are an important source of any wiki. To remove uploads is just plain stupid. Also, uploading from an external source is not a plausible option. Many images would be good in thumbnails which is not possible with external images, neither is galleries.

        There are free image hosting services out there. Check out postimage.org.

        Thanks for the tip on how to insert external images, but is there any way to put them in a "Thumbnail" (I think that's what it's called) format, such as the way Wikipedia and other wikis that CAN upload images do it? I really like the way those work - especially the captions.

        Yes there is a way to show an image from another site. Photobucket alows you to upload an image to the server. You can click on the image after it is uploaded and then click on the share box in the menu that shows up. Thsi will give you the url of the image on your clipboard. In the coding for the page type <img src="image location" height="image height" width="image width" style="position: absolute; top: vertical location in pixels; float: left or right;" image location is the urland needs to have the url pasted in from the clipboard. with the height and width just replace those with a number. this also applies to how far up or down the page, verically, that you want the image. floating an image left or right allows you to float an image to the left or right with the text flowing around it.

        Is there a way to specify image sizes apart from uploading a resized image?

      • Krem commented  · 

        If the issue with image uploads involoves vandalism, then you could make it so that only admins can upload images, but we really need to be able to upload images. Please?

        On another note, is there a way around image uploading? If there's a way to just show an image from some image hosting site, I'd be satisfied with that.
