I have added two custom BBcodes in the forum to make adding linked thumbnails and previews for Gallery items easy and reliable to place in forum posts.

Because these codes retrieve the current images from the gallery on each page display they will not break, unlike using the IMG (Insert Image) tag to link images often does, generally due to gallery item replacements, which often changes the file name.

One of the new codes inserts a linked Thumbnail in the post, the other inserts a linked Preview image in the post.

The new BBcodes require only the PID of the item to be displayed, it does the rest of the formatting and linking for you.

Here is a step by step how-to using both.

I'm going to use Kernie's Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox for my example and create a post showing the cover using the Preview BBcode and the disc label using the Thumbnail bbcode.

Before I start my new topic in the forum I need the Picture ID number or PID for each item, they can be found in the gallery here:

Attached File  PID_location.jpg ( 686.09K ) Number of downloads: 1


The Cover PID is 101218 and the label is 101217

Now in any forum section these will work, so just open a new topic or reply to get the editor like this:

Attached File  New_Topic_With_Gallery_Link_BBcodes_1.jpg ( 278.94K ) Number of downloads: 0


Clicking the new Gallery Preview BBcode under Quick Access opens this popup:

Attached File  New_Topic_With_Gallery_Link_BBcodes_2.jpg ( 325.06K ) Number of downloads: 0


I enter the PID 101218 in the box and click OK my new code is inserted at the cursor location in my post:

Attached File  New_Topic_With_Gallery_Link_BBcodes_3.jpg ( 286.46K ) Number of downloads: 0


I enter the disc label text and move my cursor down:

Attached File  New_Topic_With_Gallery_Link_BBcodes_4.jpg ( 287.92K ) Number of downloads: 0


Clicking the new Gallery Thumb BBcode under Quick Access opens this popup:

Attached File  New_Topic_With_Gallery_Link_BBcodes_5.jpg ( 334.56K ) Number of downloads: 0


I enter the PID 101217 in the box and click OK my new code is inserted at the cursor location in my post:

Attached File  New_Topic_With_Gallery_Link_BBcodes_6.jpg ( 293.3K ) Number of downloads: 0


The final post will be exactly like this:

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox by Kernie



Disc Label




Note: This is the best and preferred way to link gallery images to the forum like those used in the Guess The Cover Game etc.

This is a example of a recent post in Guess The Cover Game where I guess Bunny updated the cover and now the post was showing the broken image icon becasue the file name had changed, the item is still there but the preview image was not as a new one with a new name had been created.

Attached File  broken_image.jpg ( 214.28K ) Number of downloads: 0


I updated it with the new Gallery Preview bbcode and now that can't happen again.

There is also a Gallery Download Button BBcode it creates a button link you can use with your own custom previews to create the link to download the item.

It uses the PID of the item as well, just like the previous two, looks like this in the post:

CODE
[download]101218[/download] to center it use this [center][download]101218[/download][/center]


Attached File  flashpointparadox.jpg ( 1.14MB ) Number of downloads: 2


The result is rendered as a clickable ^ button ^ shown here below the attached preview image.

I used the one wrapped center tags in order to center it under the preview image.
