    Default [IMG] with a few tweaks

    Hiya!

    I know not having the ease of using images from external websites sucks (alot, indeed!).
    After much thought (from my previous thread), I've come to the conclusion that it is indeed possible to securely re-enable it securely!

    After reading through countless posts on the internet, I've come to the conclusion that hackers used non-extension URLs to "log" page views.
    So, wouldn't be the solution as easy as requiring an allowed image extension (such as .png, .jpg, .gif)?
    After all, nobody would want to download and re-upload an image (gosh, the wasted time!) just to be able to share it, adding to that the lack of the "clipboard" feature which other forums have (aka copying an image - from a website or your PC - and using CTRL V to paste it).

    What do you think? I personally would love this as it would allow for more image sharing on the forums, aka more attracting posts! Not to mention the relief of being able to use high-quality signatures (instead of the poor sigpic) and rotating signature images would be back!
    Does anyone actually read this?

    Just bring back [IMG], please. I really don't think logging page views is that big of a deal.

    I did provide solutions to counter that in the original post.

    Why was it changed in the first place? I can't remember.

    Signature v9.1

    As far as I know, some dude used the "no-image-extension" trick to fool browsers into requesting a script he programmed to log IP addresses.
    Requiring image URLs to have a valid image extension would most likely tackle that issue.

    So it's something that could be fixed using literally a single if statement lmao.

    Exact. And we'd be able to use that convenient feature again
