hi MathsisFun,

The upgrade seems to be working well now. I've waited before making this request as you had some debugging keeping you busy.

(1) The 'post an image' facility seems to have gone (or I cannot figure how to use it). Any chance it could be resurrected?

(2) Similarly the top of page tabs (index, rules, search etc) were repeated at the bottom. That was really handy when a thread got very long.

(3) Ditto the Topics: Posted | New | Active | Unanswered links.

If any of this is possible, I'd be grateful if you could tweak it for me.

Bob

Solution:

(1)For MIF: Use the Simple Image Upload mod or an upload mod. I've tested these and already shown you that they work.

Workaround for Bob: Use imgur.com

Better workaround: convince MIF to install it.

(2) and (3): that would require tweaking some of the fluxBB files but it is not impossible.

Workaround: use keyboard shortcuts

I don't understand 1. You can't post images right now?

(1) is a suggestion for MIF

You cannot upload pictures, Shivam.

I have been using Imgur so far.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for that, I will look into how I might be able to repeat the tabs in this version.

I think imgur (or the like) is the best solution for image hosting at the moment.

It is a cumbersome solution

hi MathsisFun,

Thanks for that. With the old version, I would try to keep my diagrams small and use the upload. I used imgur.com for larger diagrams. Now I use imgur all the time; so maybe that's for the best as it means I don't compromise on quality .
