Title: !!!Changes to the forum!!! - Image uploading feature added
Post by: bencuri on November 17, 2014, 01:37
Some changes were done on the forum:

Now you can upload images on a simplier way. When posting, click the "Add image to post" link on the panel, and a pop-up window will open (a Postimage.org panel), where you can upload the image, or copy it from a URL. When you finish uploading, a link will be added to your comment, and when you submit it, the thumbnail of the image will be displayed at the place of that link. Users can see the full-sized image by clicking the thumbnail.

On mobile devices, the pop-up window won't close automatically after the link is inserted, but don't worry about that, once the image upload is done by Postimage, just close the pop-up window, and continue editing your comment in the original window.

You can upload unlimited amount of images to your comment this way.

If you want to insert the full-sized image right into your post, resize the image in a photo editing software, and follow this guide (http://congovibes.com/congolese-music/attachments!!!!!!!!/) of DJ Sly to achieve that.

Shamala, the first thing is to save the image you want on the desktop or ''my desktop'' then  once you choose the file you want from your computer,click on upload it as shown in the steps above, once it uploads, it's pasted onto the forum message body directly, just wait a few seconds for it to show(depends on internet speed)

Unfortunately the installer didn't do the full job when adding this new feature. But you won't have problem from now on. I have added the image upload to the mobile theme, too. You can now use it the same way as described above. Just upload the image, when finished switch back to the tab in the browser where the message is, and the link will be there pointing to the image you uploaded.

By the way: if you want to add Youtube videos in the mobile theme, just simply insert the link of the video into your message. The video will be automatically displayed after the message has been submitted, no need for the Youtube button. It works that way, too, it is a hidden feature.
