Embedding Photo Albums

Hello,

I've come across multiple vbulletin based websites that incorporate the ability to embed imgur photo albums.

Imgur is an image sharing website where I store many of my rebuild efforts and pretty much everything.

I thought it would be nice to be able to just embed the photo album rather than a link that takes users to a new page.

Here is an example:

Aye. I do understand your point. That is the very reason why I paid for the yearly subscription to imgur. My photos never go away and I get to upload the high quality versions too.

Here is an example of one:

I believe recently this site added the ability to embed videos (youtube) and the like. Your argument could be extended to that as well. They are subject to the same issues.

I do understand what you mean about website's and its value but I dont think any value is lost by implementing embedded albums, especially if no better alternative (from the forum's software) exists.

This is much more helpful for future members, as nothing is more frustrating than going to an illustrated post where there are nothing but blank holes where the images (or embedded photos linked externally) used to be but are long gone.

So much of a site's value is in the photos that it has...��

Cheers,

..... but Heaven help you and your data if you ever decide to quit a site and an admin deletes your posts/threads in retaliation.......
