I was just informed that there is no way for IP.Content to check for duplicate database entries. This is certainly an option which would be very useful to avoid repetitiveness. It would be a great idea to add an ajax option like you have for when choosing a username at registration ;)
Would it be possible to add a bbcode which would allow for users to browse through an album from within the forum?
Let's say someone published an entire album and creates a topic on the forums to inform members of it, instead of adding a link which takes them to the gallery, inserts a bbcode which would allow users to view a preview of the album? in could be a quick flash preview of all the pictures or Java even and if one of the pictures is clicked, the member would be taken to the actual location of photo within the gallery for them to view it in original size or comment on it.
This would make the gallery a lot more active in many forums because lots of people don't usually go there unless they're looking for a picture, this idea would allow more and more traffic to be directed towards the gallery. That's just my opinion and according to how i see it on my community.
[quote name='bfarber' date='13 May 2010 - 06:36 PM'] A setting has been added to allow administrators who do not wish for this functionality to happen to turn it off (referring to the automatic media tag parsing).
