I don’t know which of the last updates changed so much (for the better!), e.g. replaced keyboard shortcuts with the current set of shortcuts, but it makes working with the forum much easier.
CTRL+K to create hyperlinks (instead of CTRL+L) is now the same as in a lot of other office applications, the hyperlinks are formatted in a markup that is the same as on reddit and can be used on mobile phones much easier, etc.
Thanks to the forum admin for keeping the software up-to-date on a regular basis! @Ben, is that you?
I just recognized that inserting images from clipboard is no longer supported - or is it possible do try it the wrong way?
Is it possible to enable inserting images from clipboard again?
@masterOfDisaster copy and paste of images works for me. There’s an “uploading” message now with a progress indicator in the footer of the editor slide-up, so it isn’t immediately visible. You’ll see the link appear like this, first:
And once it’s done it will be replaced with the actual image tag and metadata. This was using cmd-c and cmd-v in Chrome, so I’m interested to learn if it isn’t following the same pattern on other browsers.
URL depending on if Discourse has had time to cache the picture.
Same with right-click > View Image, then Cmd-A, Cmd-C, Cmd-V.
Try pressing Ctrl-Shift-Cmd-4 and selecting a part of the screen with your mouse, then go to Imgur and press Cmd-V. For me that inserts the picture in clipboard and lets me upload it. This is how I imagine Discourse previously worked for @masterOfDisaster.
Pinned threads are at the top of the list for the category the topic is assigned to. For the general list of “latest” it wouldn’t necessarily make sense to show all pinned content by default. If you have a reasonably large forum with many categories there’s a good chance that you’d have enough pinned content to fill up the first page of a list without any new content appearing.
