Always Show/Insert every image as full size

    Hello, I've been setting up an install that has a database imported from vb, I like to display images as Full Size but I cant find the option to Always Show/Insert every image as full size even if the post is old or new.

    Is there an option to always have full sized images in post by default?

    I don't have problems with bandwidth or disk space and members now that they need a least 512kb connections to surf my website as a requirement.

    There's no option for that. The attachments will have to be inserted into the post with the controls we provide.

    So it has to be done manually? for older and new post?

    If you wanted to update all exisiting posts, then I suppose you could run an SQL query to replace [attach] with [attach=full].

    That wouldn't help with new posts though.

    Oh man that would be great, could you please help me with the query? This is my second day with XenForo :unsure:

    This should do it:

    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'[ATTACH]','[ATTACH=full]')
    Make sure you take a backup first though, just in case.

    Note that will only work for any attachments which are currently displayed as thumbnails using the attach tag.

    2413 row(s) affected. ( Query took 3.2955 sec ) tested and it worked!
    0 row(s) affected. ( Query took 2.8499 sec ) second time.

    Thanks Brogan

    I would like to see an option to exclude the posting of images as thumbnails. We don't want them on the forum. And what's worse, by default images get posted as thumbnails! On a photo-based forum, this sucks.

    So now we have to go chasing after every thumbnail that's posted and/or educate the forum users, which is a royal pain.
