I am using your add-on to manage all my picasa gallery and image links and it is much easier to setup than the old method I was using on my phpBB forum. There is one thing I would like to fix and that is to stop the [picasa]url here[/picasa] showing up on the thread pop-ups. I am in the habit of linking a gallery to the top of a thread before any text and so they always show up. Not a disaster but it would be great to be able to hide it.
Sorry I wasn't describing it very well I should have used the word 'tooltip' and not pop-up. When you hover over a thread that contains a picasa BBcode at the very beginning of a post (or anywhere in the preview text) it shows up in full: [picasa]somepicasaurl/user/album/etc[/picasa]
Preview text here...

Is it possible to have that displayed in some other way or hidden altogether?

It's the normal behaviour for bbcodes ^^ It's possible to hide it, I've done it with premium bbcodes, but it's quite complicated... For sensitive data, I understand, for a slideshow, well... ^^
But if the url is sensitive and you want to hide it, you can still wrap your slideshow inside a premium bbcode ;)
It wasn't from a privacy viewpoint – I am stickler for detail and it simply spoils the aesthetics, but there are more important things to worry about :) I can either live with it or more likely place the picasa BBcode further down the post. Thanks for the input!
