Default onsite image hosting auto-reduce

the forum no longer auto-reduces images, now it gives an error instead.

is there anyone we can ask to turn the auto reduce feature back on? that was one of theeee most convenient features here, IMO

Good catch, Rob. Since I rarely post pictures, I had no idea!

Yep.

I had to degrade this photo by 50% to get it small enough to work. That's going to really suck if we have to do this every time we upload a photo. And it means needing software I don't have access to away from home. Auto-reduction is really the way to go.

Going through every pic is going to take forever to re-edit.

One reason I haven't been around much is the whole Photobucket fiasko. Now with this I'm thinking no way to fix with this problem as well. For me it's like never been here. The things I'm most proud of don't make sence or helpful any more. Maybe it's run it's course.

I seem to recall the ImageMagick PHP library was disabled recently due to a security issue, but as far as I can tell it's been fixed?. Probably just a switch somewhere in the forum software's backend settings page

this was the issue:

Addendum: vBulletin Security Issues

The following issues exist in vBulletin itself, reported by us to vBulletin support over 60 days ago. Since vBulletin has not patched or disclosed the issues since that time, we now do so here:

An image decompression bomb vulnerability exists when vBulletin Options > Message Attachment Options > Resize Images = Yes. Disable it to protect your site.

An image decompression bomb vulnerability exists when allowing user uploads for avatars and profile pictures. To protect your site, change your forum's permissions so that users cannot upload custom avatars or profile pics.

An image decompression bomb vulnerability exists when using ImageMagick for images and allowing uploads. Currently known issues are for PDFs and TIFFs; however, because the filename of the incoming upload is not trustworthy, removing entries from the Attachment Manager or changing Attachment Permissions are not viable options.

The following mitigation options exist:
Change vBulletin Options > Image Settings > Image Processing Library = GD, OR
Change your forum's permissions so that no users can upload anything.


Probably we're just waiting on a patch from vBulletin, before this can be re-enabled...

I wrote to the moderator(s) weeks ago after I tried to post a for sale ad and found that not only can I no longer use photo bucket, but that a direct attachment of a photo of a simple sun visor was like 5x too big for what is allowed to be posted. I have received NO response. And I still can't post pics. Does anyone know if there are moderators for this site anymore? Is the site dying a slow death? Any information would be very appreciated. Thanks!!!

I have been using imgbb.com. it's very simple. Not ideal, but it's only temporary.

Modetator has taken a sudden leave of absence which can't be good, and most of us are wishing him the best and anxiously awaiting his return.

Okay, thanks for the info. Does this site really only have a single moderator? That is crazy!!!
