We don't want a gallery from threads, but the existing gallery popup window to display all of the users images in their gallery and attachments to allow them to click on an image to insert it into their post (inline).
@Chris D has there been any more thought given to this? If its not something that's in the cards I was going to throw out a request to have someone develop it. They've got a similar feature on a forum like ours, different platform of course, and a few of my members have been asking about it.
We also need this feature. The flow must basically look like this.
1) An "Image/video" button close to the quickreply form (could be the same as the "Upload a File" button, then it just needs to be renamed).
2) Images and videos uploaded this way must also be visible in the media gallery automatically.
What I am trying to say is that it must be easier to upload images and videos for end users at the same time as they are writing a post. They should not need to go via "Media" first.
If the problem is that the media must be categorized then why not just categorize these images and videos as uncategorized?
Could you create a thread on the request forum (sonnb.com) about the detail? There are some ideas around this thread. For the original idea I do not think it will be available. Thread attachments are separated from the XenGallery. If you wish to see them in XenGallery, you can import at anytime.
