  • Photo Uploads for Posts with new Forum

    We have 2 ways that photos can be added to posts. The way we did it before is more the "Attachment Upload". The new way is "Photo Upload"

    Attachment Upload:

    Screen Shot 2018-04-15 at 11.37.08 AM.pngWhen you start or reply to a post select the 3rd icon from the top right of the editor (paperclip on a sheet of paper). This will then show a new panel below the post editor with the following buttons "Upload Attachments" and "Upload from URL". Select "Upload Attachments" then select the image(s) that you want to upload. You will then see them appear with some options to Insert them into the post. Put the cursor where you want to insert the Photo and select "Medium" (this will be a 800px version of the image which will look ok on the forum.

    When a user clicks on the image it will open in a new window/tab showing the image. You can also move the images around by selecting the crosshairs when you mouse over it.

    Photo Upload:
    For this path you select the "Camera" icon at the top left of the editor. This will allow you to attached images to the post that will show up as a thumbnail. When a user clicks of these they will see a photo gallery that makes it easy to see the larger images and navigate thru them. This is a new way to do it and has some advantages but is a change so feels weird. The main advantage is that you do not have to load all the large images on load and can choose what to look at. This also help a lot of mobile.

    Please post any questions below.
