    so i know that images can be inserted using their urls, but i was wondering if it would be possible to directly upload and insert images for the sake of convenience

    the other options we currently have are to

    a: upload the image onto some other site, grab the link, then paste link into the insert image prompt, which is tedious and annoying


    b: upload the image as an attached file, where it must be opened in a new tab to be viewed, which doesn't come close to looking as nice as an image embedded in a post

    i'm not really fond of either alternative

    furthermore i'm not sure the attachments are even possible using the mobile version of the website

    it is possible, using the upload file button at the bottom of the page, to then insert either a thumbnail or the full image...

    huh, i never noticed that was an option

    guess there's no reason for this thread then

    i think you are right about attachments not being possible with mobile (unless you type the code in and, well, that's no fun). and also i only noticed the inserty thing literally like last week, i was SO CONFUSED as to how people were doing it (i only knew about the url insert)... so at least now confused people have a place to look.

    You can also literally cut and paste shit into the post box and it'll be uploaded here and put in your post at that place.

    (that's what i've been doing for my undertale liveblog)

    @Wiwaxia neat, didn't know that.

    Currently the 'Upload a File' button is not functioning correctly. It lets me select a file and uploads it, but they used to then show up below the posting text box and could be selected and inserted into the post as either thumbnail or full size; currently I'm not seeing that and thus can't use them.

    However if I click 'post', I will see the files below the text. So they are going up, just the compose bit isn't working right.

    The "upload a file" option is still there on mobile, it's just a bit fiddly. I can attach images from my phone, but they tend to turn out HUGE when I look at them on my laptop browser. So if you see me posting antisocially enormous pics, sorry, it looks fine on my phone screen.

    Although I was there a reason to limit pics hosted here out of courtesy? Because I don't know jack about web hosting, and I don't want to...yanno...break Kintsugi, or something, by uploading too many files. (I am only half kidding.)
