Default External images for Reviews

How can I incorporate including an external image for my review? i.e. How/where I can type in "http://www.someimageserver.com/trackmy/image/impressions.gif" instead of using a locally uploaded gallery image ( I don't want to download the image to my server because I'm using a tracking service and it has to be called remotely)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've searched this forums, but the answers are inconclusive.

er, there is no way to specify a URL to an image. I can look into it, but Im not sure it would make the gold release.

Dear Senor Geek,

putting the url in the header_image field of the vb_gars database for the record seems to works fine (using phpMyAdmin) soooo.... This should be cake, just need a html input box on the "Post Review" page and alter the INSERT sql at line 1090 of gars_class_core.php to insert the value.

I think specifying an externally linked image will be one of the most requested "feature" suggestions - also would look good on the "Features" page of your promo stuff..... (did I twist your arm enough to get it in asap? LOL )

Cheers,

-John

Sure, the back end (and much of the plumbing) is easy enough, however it would require a lot of rewrite of existing code. Im more than happy to look into it, its just that im slowly getting feature creep during the last mile of development

And this actually was the first time in the history of GAS or GARS that its been requested

Ill see what I can do - Im just not keen to promise anything at this stage.

Hope you understand!

Np - I definately can relate....been trying to launch my new project for the last 2 months...now I've just ripped out my CMS and put in vbAdvanced along with GARS so I'll probably be another few weeks.....(so close but yet so far! been on this for almost 6 months!)

G/L with Gold!

Sounds scarily familiar..

vBadvanced CMPS + GARS really does seem like an ideal solution, with a couple of custom addons.
