Good day folks,

I have created a catalogue for FAQ's. I want to add images to the FAQ's but, even though I get this message when clicking the image icon:

You will be taken to add a raw image. Note that the website has an attachments feature (underneath the editor, the Attachments section). Attachments come with an easy upload and sophisticated document display settings.

... There is no 'Attachment Section' underneath the editor.

It's no great problem because I've uploaded the images first and reference them by URL.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

TQ

Ah. That's a small bug, an incorrect assumption. Will fix.

There's a catalogue field type that supports attachments if you do want it ("A block of Comcode, with attachment support").

There's also an "an uploaded picture" field type for regular individual images.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks for the feedback Chris, no problem to me right now as I said in my post.

I want to use in-line images ie text, example image, text, example image etc so the 'Field' methods may not be my best option. However, I forgot about the 'Block' method which would make it a tad easier for me in future.

Thanks again...

TQ
