Inserting photos into posts in the forum

Ccom got rid of one of the ways to post photos to the forum, the easy way.  You can still do it but you have to click on the photo icon in the tool bar above the text box you type your message in and then either drag and drop your photo in or click the Choose Files box and pick your picture.  This is also the same way you can post GIFs and web images copied into the Image URL box.

On the plus site, this method seems to insert the photo without having to delete the thumbnail as a second operation.  It's just a pain on mobile.

See below.

    Copy paste still works

    I hate myself, and I don't regret any of it.

    At any given time the urge to sing "In The Jungle" is just a whim away... A whim away... A whim away...

    How are you doing copy paste?

    Just into the body?  Does that work?  Guess it does.  Been brewing coffee in this old stovetop Vesuviana lately.

    Copy and paste doesn't work for me anymore with gifs. I'm not enjoying this change.

    Didn't work at all.  Drat, and I'd just learned this.  :/

    I did it the way shown above by @Yakster , which was how I was doing it anyway, and it went through all the motions, appeared to be loading, and then...Nothing.

    Oh, wait, there it is.  I wasn't waiting long enough, I think.

    Hmm... seems to work for me for this one at least.

    Copied the link (ending in .gif) into the Image URL text box after clicking the Image toolbar icon.

    I was able to do it with a cut and paste, right click on image and chose select image, and then go back and paste it into the text box.

    Hey, Chris @Yakster, here's something interesting - when you use CCom's button to insert a photo from your albums it completely ignores any videos. 

    I checked before before I posted the photo of the CAO Colombia and my videos were there. Once I clicked their button and selected photo albums the videos didn't appear. Odd, huh??
  • YaksterYakster I'm on a Buying Freeze / I sent the Coffee Filters!Posts: 13,217 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Frankly, I'm not surprised.  I've only been able to post videos on any forums that I've used by uploading them to Youtube or some other site first.

    Testing...
  • jlmartajlmarta 50 miles from ParadisePosts: 7,599 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Okay, so which method did you use, @CharlieHeis?  I'm thinking I'll have to go via Photobucket for a URL to any video I might want to post.

    I just copied from Giphy.com and pasted into the image url box. @jlmarta

    Not sure about posting a video, other than youtube.

    ...plain ol' copy/paste seems to work...  Here's one from my days with the Lakers.

    I learned that you can select and insert multiple photos with the insert image icon. Also, if you use the insert file icon to the left the image will only appear as a small thumbnail.
