Hi, after setting this up for the users of this forum I'd like folks to know its available for your use.

The site is at http://www.ergohost.org

Simply go there and follow the registration link to join up.

Registration goes like this :

1. Fill out the form at the site
2. Receive an email checking youre real :)
3. Follow the link in the email, you'll get a message advising you registration is confirmed.
4. Receive a second email confirming your details and assigning you a password.
5. Log in at the site and you will be redirected to your profile page
6. First off change your password to something you want
7. Use ;D

You can find the right area to upload pictures either by clicking the user panel link on the main pages or by a link displayed on th gallery tab of your profile.

There are currently roughly 240 pre-configured categories for you, I recommend "computers > gaming" for screenshots.

You can also create new categories anywhere if you so wish and make them publically or privately viewable, the former restricting visibility to registered members.

There are other features available if you wish. In your profile you will see a number of tabs, roughly these let you miniblog, comment, vote, sign a users profile guestbook, see who viewed your profile, see a gallery of a users posted pics and more.

Theres lots more the site does dynamically such as selecting images randomly for category views, showing you pictures based on certain filter criteria, the most recent pictures and so on.

For the purposes of displaying pics here, first upload and then go to the detail view of the picture and below the image itself you will see an accordion menu and some icons. One of the accordion menu options is the option to share pictures - when you expand this you will be presented with textboxes for copying code, one links an image in bbcode format to the main page, one to the detail view and one is a hyperlink to the detail page.

To display an image here just paste the copied code you chose into the postbox of the Saf forum and when you commit the post the bbcode will tell the forum to pull and display your chosen image. Its a lot simpler than it sounds here :)

Hope you like it and if its of use thank S.A.F, not me, I was just motivated to offer a service to the users here needing a way to display screenshots, and seeing this is such a great place I wanted to give something back ;D

Heres the link again in case you actually read all this :P :

If there are any support enquiries I strongly encourage you to use the image site to contact me (follow my profile link in the users list) or at least PM me here if there are issues you are experiencing.

I dont wish to upset SAF turning their forum into my support system ;D

ergohost.org has been taken down, all users and the gallery plus the files have been shifted to www.epiacum.com/Gallery.html

Ive really moved the gallery there rather than take it down, Im uncertain as to whether I'll develop it any further.

You will find your accounts and logins from epiacum.org should work on the new site.
