Forum improvements phase 2!

Post by broady_6 » 5th July 2019 - 7:28am

Hello all you lovely forum members, in a bid to make your lives at little easier and to continue on from the last announcement. We have made a further improvement. You are now able to upload photos directly to the forum, much like you would to social media sites and many other forums. Files will automatically be compressed and resized when you upload them, the original file needs to be less than 2.9Mb. You can upload up to 3 photos per post.

If you wish to take advantage of this great new feature. When replying to a post, click the full editor option at the bottom of the text box. On the following page under the text box you will see a tab labelled “attachments”. Following on from that click on add files, when the file has uploaded the icon will turn green. You can then simply submit or preview the post and the photo will appear after any message you have written. Alternatively if you click “place inline” some code will appear in the text box and you can continue to write more text after the photo. You can then preview the post and edit it again, or submit the post.

Currently space is limited, so if you are updating a build thread with lots of photos, it would be appreciated you continue to use the external hosting sites. But for all other posts this will be ideal. Providing this is successful, we plan to offer more space.

If you have any questions or problems please get in touch with one of the admin team and we will be more than happy to help you out.

Happy snapping
