Unable to link Sigs in phpbb

Postby rogue329 » Tue Aug 15, 2006 1:05 am

Everything seems to be set correctly but the images are not showing up in user signature areas.

Siggen appears to be creating the images correctly from the roster because I can view them in IE and Firefox by just typing the link into the address window. However when I attempt to add them to my profiles using the [img]call%20in%20phpbb%20I%20just%20see%20'[img]http://myrosteraddress.com/addons/siggen/siggen.php?name=rogue329[/img].

We can link to the saved images but then they are not updated unless the administrator goes in and hits update. I know that we had this working on a previous site but for the life of me I cannot remember what the catch is.

I ran rosterdiag and these are the results.
PHP Settings phpinfo() page

PHP Version 5.0.4
PHP API Type cgi
safe_mode Off

GD Support

GD Status On
GD Version bundled (2.0.28 compatible)
FreeType Support Yes
FreeType Linkage with freetype
T1Lib Support No
GIF Read Support Yes
GIF Create Support Yes
JPG Support Yes
PNG Support Yes

Config Values Show Entire $roster_conf array

version 1.7.0

Not sure what we are missing.....any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

From what I remeber phpbb does not allow showing of image links with ".php" etc in them, as in they have to be solid image files, eg .png.gif etc. If that's not what your problem is then I apologise.

Alternatively, you can try to use these:
Signature: http://www.yoursite.com/roster/addons/s ... hp/Bob.png
Avatar: http://www.yoursite.com/roster/addons/s ... hp/Bob.png
NOTE: This method for accessing siggen does not work on all servers

If that doesn't work, read the additional info in this section of the WiKi:

You can also try enabling HTML in the PHPBB admin forum config and then use <img src="http://www..."></img> - that works for me

I setup mine to generate when the CP.lua was uploaded and save them to a directory. Then all of my people point to their saved images directly instead of to the php file. This also saved on some of the processing time that each call to get the image viewed took. If you have a small guild this might not matter, but I have 350 members and that is a lot of generating all the time when they are all using them (well some of them do anyway. :) ).
