Attachments

Quite frequently we see new users posting with images that they have uploaded to bitbucket or similar - because they haven't found the option to attach images in Additional Options.
I wonder if changing it to:
Additional Options and Attachments...
might help more people find it?

Re: Attachments

Could someone from Plusnet make a comment please.
There's been more people posting images that they've uploaded elsewhere in the last few days. A moderator thought it was worth a try.

...and so did another as some of the images uploaded to sites and linked to in a post are unreadable without resorting to 'CTRL +'

Re: Attachments

Not a bad suggestion Jelv, I'll see if I can find out how easy it would be to make that change.

We *should* be able to do this after we've made the forum layout changes within the next couple of weeks.

Re: Attachments

Great - we'll be watching to see whether people are still uploading images elsewhere - hopefully they'll see this and won't.

I sometimes upload images elsewhere where I want things  displayed inline with my post content. Well I say elsewhere but I still tend to upload the images to the Community servers Wink

Re: Attachments

Agreed, there are occasions when displaying images in-line is appropriate. But we do see a lot of posts where an attached image would be far more suitable - if only because of the automatic thumbnail.

Re: Attachments

and one of our original moans is that a lot of inline posts are so small its impossible to read anything, I often post photo's in line but I think always post screen shots of text as attachments
