    Strange it didn't render for you. There is never any filedata that would cause it to actually upload for me, only the embedded inline. Everyone's computer works different I guess.

    Good luck

    Vbulletin is a great product and I hope you find what you need.

    Here is an example. As you can see there are no attachments below the image. I simply copied and pasted the image into the editor. My site doesn't have any current plugins. Not sure why it wouldn't work for you.

If for some reason you believe it's not supported, it's always worked for me. Even when it includes text with it, I simply copy and paste. It always works for me.

    It would also be nice if image pasting is supported. That way, if you take a screenshot and you want to attach it to a post, you don't have to save it in a file. You can just copy it and paste it into the editor. That would be convenient for the users. This is how it works on Github issue tracking system.

    There is already a JIRA for this here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-11488

    So far it hasn't received a lot of votes to raise its priority as an improvement request.

    I use google+ for image hosting. When I'm posting an image, I drag the image from google into the editor and it works perfect. Other image hosting may do the same thing. Drag and drop for uploading attachments and photos to the database would be a nice plugin though.

    vBulletin uses CKEditor as the third-party rich text editor. There are a lot of CKEditor plugins that you can use to implement drag and drop image uploads.

    started a topic Drag and drop image uploads

    Drag and drop image uploads

    So many online services are using a drag and drop interface for uploading images. I tried the VB5 demo, and it doesn't have this feature. Does anyone know of a forum software that has that?
