“Conversations” has always been a somewhat confusing moniker. It was chosen, admittedly before the popularity of “direct messages” being used on other services/platforms.. I think the original idea was they wanted to avoid “private messages” as it’s a bit of a misnomer given they aren’t necessarily private - you can invite others, you can have an admin who reads them via an add-on, they can be seen by moderators (partially) if messages are reported and so on.
While I'm all for WebP support (supposedly it's coming in XF 2.3), but you do know you don't have to convert an image to use a WebP image in XenForo, right?@KensonPlays I just want webp support! I'm totally gagging for it and wish they'd add it in a 2.2.14 update. Every time I link to a BBC or Yahoo article and use one of their pictures, I have to convert the sodding thing to jpeg using Paint. Same with some other sites, too. What a pita.
Beats me... definitely just worked for me. Make sure the editor is in WYSIWYG mode. Make sure you are copying the image, not the URL. Maybe try a different browser... definitely works in Chrome (what I just used), but I use it all the time on other things like Safari without issue.@digitalpoint No, I didn't know that. I just tried it and did the following steps:
Did I miss something? I'm on Firefox btw, in case that makes a difference.
- Clicked your BBC link
- Right clicked the picture and hit Copy
- Pasted it into a blank editor post
- Hit Preview and got the result below

Ok weird, it works in Chrome. I wonder if the fact I'm on XF Cloud makes any difference here.Beats me... definitely just worked for me. Make sure the editor is in WYSIWYG mode.

It's actually THE best thing about th editor XenForo uses, imo.
Probably just what Firefox is putting into the clipboard in that case. Like maybe Firefox copies an image as the URL it's at or something weird like that.Now, this is interesting: if I copy the picture from Chrome, then the paste works in Chrome and Firefox. If I copy again from Firefox, then it fails, which tells me that copy doesn't quite do the same thing between both browsers. Is this something that can be worked around, maybe? Got the latest versions of both browsers installed.
Yes. Chris D replied to me about it, saying that it's an improvement over Froala in every way. He didn't give any more details than that, unfortunately. I think it might arrive with 3.0, but don't quote me.Don't they have another editor in active development anyway? Unless I'm thinking of something else. I'm sure I read that the other day.
I don't imagine they'll put much resources in the current one if that is the case.
