  • Posting multiple photos in a thread reply

    Hi All. I'm hoping someone could help with what is probably a simple question. I am on the hosted version of vBulletin, which means we are on version 5.6.1

    When making a post, if a user hits the "Image" icon to insert an image into the reply, they are only able to click one photo and then they have to hit the "Upload to server" and then do the same thing again if they want to insert another photo in the reply.

    I saw in some of my research that you are supposed to be able to use "shift" or "ctrl" to select multiple images to be uploaded but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Is that a setting I need to change in the admin tool?

    To be clear, I'm not talking about uploading multiple photos into your personal profile photo album - that seems to allow multiple photos to be added at once. I'm talking about making a post just like I'm doing right now (I confirmed I couldn't do it on this reply either)

    Any help or advice is very appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I looked at the HELP link from our hosted forum and this is the excerpt from the help files regarding photos. It certainly doesn't seem to working in this manner:

    To upload new photos press the Upload button and browse to the images you wish to upload. You may add multiple images by using standard "shift & click" or "control & click" options to select multiple files. To upload additional images press Upload More, otherwise press Continue.

      The insert image inline tool allows one image at a time.

      Multiple Images can be uploaded by...

      1. Click on the Camera (Top Left) to create a Photo Gallery post and gain the ability to upload multiple images at one time. Photos in a Gallery cannot be used inline.
      2. Click the Attachment icon (Top Right) to allow attachments that can be inserted inline. This will open the Attachments panel that allows multiple images/files to be uploaded at once.
      3. Click on the images in your operating systems file browsing tool (i.e. File Explorer or Finder) and drag them over an vBulletin Editor. Drop the files and they will be uploaded.

        Thanks Wayne. I think I understand. Is there anyway to update the help directions as they seem misleading?

          You can edit the help text in your AdminCP under "Help (User Manual)".

            Wayne,

            When I started writing a "tutorial" for my forum regarding how to upload multiple pictures and update the user manual per your suggestion above - I realized there is a 5 picture/attachment limit per post on my forum that I can't seem to find a setting for anywhere. Is that something I can change or is that hardcoded somewhere?

            As a reminder, I'm on the hosted version. I'd really like to get that to at least 10 but I can't find the setting anywhere.
