though my default image for the links are not showing. It was saved but i have a feeling that it was not uploaded on the server due to permissions.

Which folder do I set my permission to so that default image will be shown?

Morgan thanks.

I was trying to get the "default" image to show for the links and now it works. But my "upload a new image" option seems to have disappeared in "posting a link/thread" page. How di i get it back? thanks.

Checked in permission that administrators can upload images to the gallery.. but when posting a link there is no such option to upload an image.. I know I had this feature on at first but something went wrong and I dont have the option anymore. Please help.

Please don't double post. It doesn't make me answer any faster. Thanks. As to your question, posts to the link directory don't show the upload box, as the link directory add-on fetches the thumbnail for you from whatever thumbnail service provider you use. If no thumbnail is available, then the default image is used.

Morgan. I'm sorry for the double posts.

I contacted my webhosting if they can turn on "allow_url_fopen", the answer was unfortunately no due to security. I contacted Brian if his product 'vBa link directory' uses the same way to generate thumbnails from thumbshots. He explained as follows.

Quote:
vBa Links does not use fopen() to call the thumbnails, so there should not be any way that you would have that problem.
So I would like to know what could be an alternative way to generate thumbnails as I can't turn on the function on my server.

Also it would be handy to know how I can upload a custom image for header for links if method above fails.

Thanks morgan.

1: Untested but you might try editing the code to use cURL instead, near the following in the /mods/persist/snap.php file:
Code:
			if (!($handle = @fopen(unhtmlspecialchars($location), 'rb')))
			{
				$errors[] = $location . " is invalid";
			}
2: Untested but you might try switching the true to false and the false to true in the /mods/edit/snap.php file.

Morgan thanks..

1. what exactly do I need to change in the file? Do I switch @fopen to @curl
[result] changing @fopen to @curl caused a black page after clicking a submit button.

thanks.

There is more involved than switching the name. Please visit the PHP cURL page for examples.
