Adding images to posts - how to do it. (General)

Hi Peter (and everyone)

This is clearly a tour de force in explaining how to place images into posts. However we (admins) remain concerned about the various implications of doing so. There are security issues both for Forum users and our hosting arrangements as well as the concerns about rights explained in my earlier posts.

The current Forum software does not allow fine grain control of the way in which different insertions can be included. We want to review all of this in more detail.

Can we therefore ask that:

if there is a need to exchange images that are relevant to specific identification of individuals then please do that via direct emails between those discussing the point and not post them to the Forum;

if images are of more general interest then send them to us and we will arrange to place them on the website.

We are happy to hear views about what is needed - use replies to this thread.

We will post further when we have made further checks on how the software can best handle this and considered the wider issues.
