Here are some suggestions that might make the Gallery easier to use (for me Wink ).
Hopefully for others too.
Satisfaction is where it's at.

If easier..... and members are more satisfied with their posts....they might post more often. 👍🏽🙏🏽👍🏽🙏🏽


======================


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

I'd use this feature.

If you can identify the post that the user was working on, an option that says "click <here> to put these links "directly in my current post" would be useful too.

Even better to put the link at the cursor position (of the post that the person is working on). I have no idea know if "cursor location" is feasible.



=======================

A "copy" link would make the gallery easier/faster to use on an iPhone.



===========================

Here's another way to make it easier/faster to insert pics from the Gallery.
Especially on an iPhone.

When the link is at the bottom, it takes some work to select it and move it around.
If the member just leaves all the pics piled up at the bottom, it can result in a "lower quality" post that the member is not as happy with, nor the readers.

==============

Ok -- hope these suggestions help somehow. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

First, nice work on the screen editing and images you created.

#1:
Unfortunately I don't know what post you are working on when uploading pics.
This is not impossible but it's easier to simply click all the "Insert" buttons on the Forums post message screen quickly to insert anything you just posted?
The upload screen also auto-refreshes so I would have to either stop that or you would have to click it really fast. Cool

#2:
I could add that but you know you can click the box with the text and it copies it, right?

This is weird, it looks like I tried to do that when I first made all of those insert buttons but apparently I couldn't figure it out so I made it insert everything at the end. It works now. Very Happy

The devil is in the details, right?

I know that it 'selects' all the text but never knew that it put the text into the copy buffer.
That would have been very handy to know (over the years).👍🏽👍🏽
But sometimes I already have something in my copy buffer, and with a phantom overwriting my copy buffer I could lose something that took awhile to compose (especially on the iPhone).
Which may have happened many times over the years but I likely thought I was just insane.
My preference to have the "copy" function user-initiated.
The copy button is 100% self-explanatory to new users (and old Embarassed ).

I tested the "INSERT" button and Cool like very much Cool that it inserts at the cursor.

Thanks Everett, I'm glad that you found my suggestions useful.
I will try the new features!

TheSamba keeps a lot of VWs viable and on the road!

I don't think it does. Formerly, on Linux only, selecting text would also "copy" it, but recent
versions of Firefox have disabled that function on Linux. It never put the selected text
on the clipboard (aka "copy buffer") in any Windows I ever used.

Also, I believe some browsers allow users to deny access by websited to the system clipboard.
Lots of users do not know what that setting is or how to change it.

It works in Chrome and Firefox on Windows 10 right now - I just tried it.

To be specific it's not copying the text because you are selecting it...
It's copying the text because I'm using a Javascript command to make it copy the text to the clipboard when you click on it.

I don't know about Linux and whether it works there.

I believe you are correct about the clipboard setting but you have to specifically turn it off.
I have never turned it on and it works for me.

I'd like to repeat that I often have something in my copy buffer, and the browser doing a 'phantom overwrite' is not my preference.
Sometimes I have a lot of 'work' on a reply, in the copy buffer.

My preference is a user-initiated 'copy' link.
Users will understand it entirely upon seeing the copy link.
It "suggests the next action" which is "copy this and paste it into your post" and voila, your pic will appear.

I think.....users will have more success and satisfaction in using the gallery and this is a fairly simple way to teach this step of inserting a pic.

I really like the way the imager insert works (at the cursor) now.
That almost precludes the need to copy from the gallery.
But when I'm _in the gallery_ I do wanna copy it right there.

I agree it might have been confusing to users and overwriting the clipboard without notice could be annoying.

I have changed it to have a copy link instead.

Thank you.
