    I enabled an option for our theme which adds a button to the bottom of the screen on mobile which takes you to the top of the page just like the desktop version. I could just make the header stick to the top like it does on desktop but that really closes up the screen space with useless clutter!

    Next time you go to navigate to the top of the page click the dark gray button in the bottom right!

    Thanks Zack!  They also makes it easier to go and log in… a lot of times I read a thread and then decide i actually do want to post, but as john described I have to go “all the way back to the top”……so that helped that for me!  Great work Zack! thanks

    I love going on adventures in our bus!!!

    I always tap the top of the screen where the time is displayed once, then again after that and it zips me to the top of the screen.

    Basically double tap the top we’re the time is displayed (iPhone)

    Do something

    I see that the thread page count is at the bottom of each page. Sometimes I’ll want to skip through pages looking for a specific post on a page. I have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to the page count buttons. Would it be a pain to also add the page count to the top of each page as well as the bottom?

    Zack… How about adding a project to the gallery?  This single cab I am working on… does not have a folder…  we have just been uploading to the forums the whole project…     soon… I’m gonna want to get all those pics off my computer and loaded into a gallery….  we used to link to the gallery on the old site…..  are we doing double uploads this way?  taking twice as much space?

    Justin – I went ahead and added the navigation to the top of the page on replies to topics, took me ahwile to find the right code to add that!

     

    Dad – Im gonna make that my project for this week, I dont think we will run into any storage issues anytime soon. Since the site was put up (~6 months ago) we have only used 8GB of space on top of what we started with (125GB). This leaves us with nearly 300GB of space to use up! Eventually I would like to figure out how i can just grab all of the uploads anybody who works at the shop uploads to a thread and then link each picture to the gallery automatically. That will be a very involved proccess.

    As for the gallery uploads, I will make it so you (and any other administrators) can:

    • create a new project folder anywhere in the gallery
    • Upload as many images as you want to a project folder all at once with simple drag and drop.
    • Delete images from the gallery.
      • I will not allow deletion of folders because the entire gallery could be deleted in one click that way.

     

    For everyone – I urge you to start using the new image upload feature, i have not seen any images that use it yet! I promise it is better and I will fix issues that are reported. Keep in mind you can use it weather or not you are on a computer by tapping the box instead of dragging media into it. To use it just click the second image icon on the reply toolbar and drag your media into the box or select it from your file system by tapping the box.

    I just did one of those multiple uploads and they were not in order, numerically, and didn’t work one time, and I didn’t get to pick the pictures one ontop of the other… seems easier for me to do it one at a time…..   maybe cause it’s a PC??

    When images are drag and droped all at once there is no inherent order to them, so they are added as they are uploaded to the server but they can be drug around in the text box if their order is not exactly how you like. You can still do one drag and drop upload at a time to ensure they are in the order you want them to be in. Also, I just revised my code to insert images at the cursor in the box instead of at the top of the text, so when you go to insert an image make sure your cursor is where you want the image!

    It is definatly easier to do one upload at time, the multiple uploads at once is honestly just a nice feature to have; It is not a super usefull feature for forums. I would not be surprised if mac might handle the dragging an dropping of files a little bit differently than windows, but I have used this same script on another website which I used a mac to access most of the time and it worked just fine. Mac Vs. PC should not matter on most levels, assuming you are using chrome, and NOT safari. If you are using safari the only fix is the absolutly never touch safari again; Chrome or firefox are light years better in terms of support.

    You said one time the upload just didnt work at all, how big were the images and what were their files types (png/jpg/gif/…)? I can up the allowed size of files or add file types easily. Also, was an error displayed? I think I have one for files being invalid one for images being too big. If neither of those showed up then perhaps the server was restarting right when an image was being uploaded… which is really unfortunate. Maybe i should add a banner up top 10 minutes prior to a server restart ???

    Looking good Zack. The refinements are making this better and better.

    I’ve tried uploading jpegs with the new upload feature with little success. It take at least two tries to get them to upload. It acts like its uploading the fist time, but the pictures do not appear. I made sure to have the cursor in the right spot. I also like the older uploader because I can constrain the proportions to make the images small and appear side by side collage style.

    I tried a video today. It would not allow the upload. So I went with youtube. you can see it under parkway projects if you think its something with size or format. It looks like you’ve taken the embed feature off? It just shows the link now.

    Also the right click to upload to the gallery is nice…but now does not allow cut, paste, edit or spelling corrections.

    Edit, nevermind I figured out how to paste and copy if I change the post box from visual to text.

    But like John said, totally unimportant. I can make due with anything. Thankful just to have a website.

    Thanks for the feedback! It really helps me change things for the better! I have no way of knowing if something seems off or doesn’t work for everyone if nobody notifies me! I am always welcome to more posts explaining little issues, as long as the expectation of them being fixed in a timely manner is low ????

    Yesterday I (for whatever reason) decided to turn on the option for right clicking in the text area to bring up a different menu, but I just disabled it since it sounds like copy and paste is more common than I thought! The normal right click menu should be showing up after a day or two when everyone’s cache clears (or you can clear it manually).

    The embed feature has been really finicky for everyone (including me), I think it really likes straight up links, so with YouTube you can just grab the link right from your url bar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM8bTdBs-cw

    It looks like YouTube also puts a ?feature=youtu.be at the end of url when you open the link from an embedded link, remove that from the url too. If you are okay with just uploading videos to YouTube, that is going to be 10,000 time better than uploading here. They can be nearly infinitely long, super high quality (I.E. Really big files), easy to upload, and easy to access. I definitely endorse using YouTube and linking here!

    Or on instagram you can just pull the link to the image right out of the browser: https://www.instagram.com/p/BeryGkVH1I5/?taken-by=kustomcoachwerksco

    Crazy day today on #sst2018

    A post shared by John Jones (@kustomcoachwerksco) on

    Since it sounds like the multiple uploads feature isn’t entirely relevant in this context, I might just recreate the other plugin and include all of those options, or finally give in and buy the plugin so I can easily edit it to my hearts content

     

    Thanks again for the feedback Franz!

    The plugin in used to have the emojis on the bar appears to have stopped working since updating WordPress last night… Ill have to find a new one!

    As for emojis on phones, there is a second keyboard which lets you select emojis to insert into what ever you are typing. You’ll have to ask mom where it is on your phone but that should make it 10x easier to insert emojis
