There should be an image icon next to images that treats them like images (they pop up in a gallery or just view the image if you open in new tab) clicking on the name would download it just like other attachments.

 

It may be that, that functionality isn't very obvious and user friendly but there have been no comments so far about it.

 

(Also i've just spotted a bug that files with extension PNG rather than png weren't being detected as images, will fix that now

It just comes up saying "quote_comment_######" for me now. I presume this is because I switched to the old editor to still enable easy posting of images from Imgur? I was able to edit quoted posts in the old editor previously though. Is there not just one option that allows you to do everything easily rather than needing to find workarounds to everything? 

 

It's impossible to convert the HTML to BBCode unfortunately which is why you can't edit a HTML quote if you're using the BBCode editor (what happens if you quote something that has custom HTML and try to edit it?).

 

I think you're thinking about this the wrong way. The main point here seems to be “enable easy posting of images from Imgur” I have no idea what the problem is here or why you don't find it easy to post images from Imgur with the HTML editor. Can you describe what the issue so it can be fixed?

Maybe it was a .PNG attachment that I most recently tried then. I just found a non-.PNG and tested it and it now works (clicking the name opened the image in the same tab, clicking the icon opened it in a new tab).

View post on imgur.com

 

So the only option I can see to easily copy/paste the links from Imgur is to use the HTML embed option. None of the others show up in the html editor (just copying the link makes the link but doesn't show the images, the BBCode and Reddit markup just paste the code (as might be expected really)). The html embed option doesn't work well though, it has additional extraneous bits that aren't usually there and make it less easy for a user to then view and save the image from the post, as in the example above.

 

Also once I've pasted the code, the rest of my post is now in white text against black, which I can change in the text edit functions of the post, but shouldn't need to. Hopefully it's all just something I'm missing, but I've had a play around with the options I can see and I'm not finding anything.

 

Cheers 🙂

Can you possibly screenshot what it is you're pasting in? It's difficult to tell as it converts to something else once it's pasted.

 

I'm looking at the HTML bit of this but it doesn't do what you're describing for me?

 

Also I would normally embed an imgur post like this: 

If you find using the toolbar button annoying and just want pasting in “https://i.imgur.com/GOC08SL.png” to instantly turn into an image that could be enabled butI don't know if that would sometimes be annoying? e.g. if you just wanted to link to a large image rather than embedding it.

Aww man… When I do it, it looks like this: 

I tried the embed toolbar button as the option, but from the options I have above, there's no filename, so I'd have to manually add in the .png to it. So now it's not your area, as it looks like it's differences in Imgur. Any ideas on why that is then? Otherwise, it's going back to the old editor but missing out on other functionality, like being able to edit quoted posts.

You might be sharing an “album” link rather than an image. From just that screenshot it's hard to tell where you're clicking.

 

You should be able to copy a link to any image by right clicking the same as any image on the internet.

Would it be possible to add a section to the download graphics landing page https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics that links to our “other FM graphics” section https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/20/other-football-manager-graphics

 

There is a lot of good stuff in there and it would make it easier for people to find.

Here, specific to images, not an album:

I'll give a try with right-click and copy image address, that might be the way to go, though I still think it's all a bit odd… 

 

Cheers.

@Footygamer and @murrayg  I think you might be suffering from a case of miscommunication. 

 

In the old bbc-editor you could just copy a bbc-link directly in to the comment field.

 

In the new htlm-editor that is not possible any more.

 

So @murrayg there are (at least) two ways to add a image in the new editor.

 

  1. choose the htlm link instead of the bbcode link and copy the link directly in comment field, Just as you are use to (from imgur.com).
  2. you can also push the button “inset image” in heading of the commentary field and inset a picture directly from your computer or push the small arrow just to the right and inset a link directly to the image (right clicking on the image to get the link).

Trying to embed a streamable video (this one) doesn't work for me, I get a “This media URL is not supported” message. Additionally, the box for inputting the media URL is cut off at the edge of the comment box:

@weeniehutjr i've added streamable now. I have to manually add each service so if there's any others let me know 🙂

 

@murrayg  I've added new functionality so if you copy and paste a link to an image into the editor it will automatically become an image.

 

e.g. if you copy a link in such as “https://sortitoutsi.net/logo.png” it will automatically embed the image. 

 

If you don't want it to then just ctrl+z after it turns into a link.

Thanks, just tested it and it worked fine. Is there any option to embed images inline rather than centred by default? For me it works better inline, at least if there are multiple images, but I don't know if I'm in the minority thinking that and everyone else prefers centred.

Yeah there should be 4 options inline, left, right, center when you click on the image.
