Yeah imgur is the way to go woops, just upload there and click on the image, to get a code that ends in. jpg like this


It's a bit tricky on mobile tbh, you don't want the gallery view

Then wrap it in
tags.

Altho there's prob an easier way tbh

Putting the IMG tags round the imgur code means u don't get the horrible imgur branding. If you are on desktop, just get the bb code

I just upload it to Imgur then right-click on it, copy-image-location and paste the URL into the image-insert panel.

It seems to be impossible to select text within the editor box, or copy and paste within it, which is a real fucker when you tend to hack things about while you're writing them the way I do.

Are you on desktop or mobile? Works fine on my laptop.

One thing I miss is that the old place used to automatically strip formatting when you pasted, here you have to do shift-cmd-V.

i noticed this on the new (hacked) theme - i think the selection is made, but not displayed - the colour's not changeing
it works ok on the "default" theme - the blue one

that's a good tip

@droid i'm wondering if a cunning mysql c&p might overcome that legacy youtube links/embed issue, but tbh it's longer than my attention span right now

likewise finding the setting to fix this one: https://www.dissensus.com/index.php?threads/15443/post-443264 o_O
https://xenforo.com/community/threads/changing-text-highlight-color.176620/ sorted that

The highlight style is a CSS thing, very easily fixed, we should bundle it with theme development.
there's a whole layer of colour options, similar to the shit ones on vb, but not so shit i guess, before we get to the real css

Yeah, that could work, Id need to look at some documentation. An plugin of some kind would probably be less risky.

That "New Dissensus" style's definitely an improvement. The good bits of the default with a cooler colour scheme.

I'm not hating it. felt a little spread out at first but then I changed the default view, getting used to it. all things must change.
