Hi there,

This just came up as an issue on my Ansel post yesterday when Crystalizer quoted my post. It had an image in it, but instead of the quote showing said image, it just had the image name listed. Here's the post in question: https://anz.forums.geforce.com/viewtopic.php?p=17086#p17086

Is it possible to make the forum show pics in quotes? As you can see, it's confusing otherwise.

Cheers,

Jim

honestly, and especially for larger pictures like ANSEL shots, it saves a lot of space per page by just having the image name listed than having the image quoted as well

automatically turning IMG bbcode tags into URL tags upon quoting is the preferred method.

What really needs to happen is something I suggested a while back - quotes linking back to the quoted post. Then you can just click the quote to go back to the original and see the full context of the post.

Yeah this is something that is a major QoL improvement for the forums and should definitely be implemented

I like this idea!
Solves the initial problem here where uploaded attachments can't be quoted, if you quoted IMG tags, it still works.

I was thinking the Spoiler feature that you often see on some other forums would be handy to have too ... less applicable in this instance, but it made me think of it when Nomming mentioned "saving space" lol

Thanks Jim,

Great idea and makes sense. We have passed this on to our Web Team and hopefully will have this included in the next update.

Thanks for sharing.
