Post subject: Picture upload to external hosting service while posting

Hi,

what's the best phpBB2 Mod for picture upload to an external hosting service while posting?

Which external free service is reliable? There are so many picture upload sites on the web.
I don't want to host pictures on my own server, it's traffic is dedicated to phpBB.

The Mod should allow to upload pictures while posting as simple as Facebook does, link in viewtopic to the uploaded pictures at the end of the respective post and all should be responsive for mobile devices.

Regards,

Reinhard

Hi,

I only know old phpBB2 mods for that, and there's really no guarantee that they work with any kind of image uploading service that exist nowadays...

I will try all of them. Do you have a respective list/overview of these mods (titles used in phpbbhacks mods archive)?

I went to look because I thought some premods I saved on github had such a mod, but I can't find it anymore... Maybe UltimArena had it but I can't find the zip anymore.

I went to look in the phpbbhacks archive, but it has FasterUpload.com (down), FileAnchor.com (down), uploadpic.com (down). icon_sad.gif

Thank you for your answer.

I am planning a CDN cached static content (file and image) upload feature on my own server to reduce these dependencies.

It should be responsive (just a link to select a file/image from a PC or from any kind of smartphone for upload) and the bbcode (link or img) should be inserted during posting after upload automatically. Images should be compressed on the fly.

Can you recommend any mod which is the best to base this uploading feature on? For example, which mod is used at phpbb2refugees.com for attachments, if this is the best one?

Best Regards

Reinhard

The mod installed here is Attachment Mod by AcydBurn.
It's a pretty heavy mod, and does a lot of things (it has its own folder by default, though you can move things to includes/ of course).

I'm not sure for phpBB2 there's a drag-to-upload mod, but it's doable for sure.

Part of the request from the OP was to upload to an external hosting site...I assumed that meant somewhere other than where their board was being hosted.
