Hi guys,

I run an image hosting site and have prepared a special integration module that lets forum owners add it to their site as an 'UPLOAD IMAGE' button in the regular post options.

It's fast, free, registration free and very simple to use.

The images are optimized for forums, thumbnails are generated, the images themselves are resized to a user-specified width etc.

Other features include a multiple file uploader, so users can upload up to 5 images at once.

All of this is done simply through a tidy little pop-up that launches if they click the 'UPLOAD IMAGE' button.

If you're interested in adding it to your forum there's a few ways you can do so:

Invision Power Board

Add this to your "Footer".  The rest is entirely automatic!  If you're using a free IPB host, you may need the instructions below this.
<script language="javascript" src="http://forum.imgfree.net/uploadpop.js"></script>
<noscript><a href="http://www.imgfree.net">Image Hosting</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">
var b = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
var numb = b.length;
for(i=0;i<numb; i++)
{
if(b[i].name == "img")
{
// get the parent element
var c = b[i].parentNode;

br = ((c.innerHTML.indexOf("<BR>") > 0) ? "<BR>" : ((c.innerHTML.indexOf("<br>") > 0) ? "<br>" : "<BR/>"));

// internet explorer
var ctextarr = c.innerHTML.split(br);

  // put the inner text back together with the new button
  c.innerHTML = ctextarr[0] + br + ctextarr[1];
  c.innerHTML += "<input type=\"button\" class=\"codebuttons\" value=\"UPLOAD IMAGE\" onclick=\"LaunchImgFree();\" title=\"Upload Image\" />";
  c.innerHTML += br + ctextarr[2];
  break;
}
}
</script>

OR

Navigate to your template html editing section in your admin control panel, find the post options, then within that html locate:

<input type='button' accesskey='g' value=' IMG ' onclick='tag_image()' class='codebuttons' name='img' onmouseover="hstat('img')" />

and just after it add:

<input type='button' value='UPLOAD IMG' onclick='LaunchImgFree();' class='codebuttons' />
<script language="javascript" src="http://forum.imgfree.net/uploadpop.js"></script>
<noscript><a href="http://www.imgfree.net">Image Hosting</a></noscript>

vBulletin
I haven't seen or heard of anyone integrating it on vBulletin before, so I'm really not sure of what that involves.

Basically you need to include a JS file located on my server, and then add a button.

If someone would like to have a go, the codes are:
JS

<script language="javascript" src="http://forum.imgfree.net/uploadpop.js"></script>
<noscript><a href="http://www.imgfree.net">Image Hosting</a></noscript>

Button

<input type="button" value="UPLOAD IMAGE" class="codebuttons" onclick="LaunchImgFree();" />

Adding images to boost your SERP is a good way to bring traffic to the site - as long as the images are tagged with the proper keywords.
