  • [Bug / Issue] Pasting screenshots

    Is there a way to get vB5 to accept screenshots? I have tried copying and pasting images from websites with mixed success but screenshots made with browser add-ons don't seem to work. If I paste one here or on my forum, I see it while I'm making the post, however, it disappears when I preview or post.

    I've just pasted one below, I can see it now but not when I preview the post and I'm sure it'll vanish when I submit the post.

    Actually, when I clicked on Post it gave me the following error message:

    Maximum number of characters exceeded. It cannot be more than 150000 characters. The current number of characters is 270047 deleting the image to be able to post!

    You can't copy and paste screenshots. Use the Attachment tool in the upper right corner of the editor.

      It requires a plugin for CKEditor to allow drag and drop and pasting images. I created a mod for this. Watch video screencast below:
