Quick Post Widget
standard image upload option (6 posts)

    I'd like to add a simple feature outside of the editor that allows the user to upload an image like the basic "choose file" button that comes with most forms. Is it possible to add some code to the plugin that will create this option. I want to use that instead of the visual editor so it's easier to disinguish.

    Also looking for the same option. Really love the widget, but the visual editor offers too many options for standard users. A simple upload image or use HTML would be brilliant!

    I Agree

    A simple upload and attach to the post function would be great. From there all attached images can be displayed in a gallery with the [gallery] shortcode or slimbox...

    LOVE this plugin but the upload and insert image function is unfortunately too cumbersome for my site users (though it is ingenious more than adequate for most internet savvy users).

    Please Please Please include a simpler "Upload and Attach" to post function in future upgrades of this fantastic plugin.

    Something more to add - which make the problem stated above a bit more serious.

    I think it would be important to limit the image sizes and file types that could be uploaded to save on server space and bandwidth. As it stands I can not find a way of limiting uploads and I am afraid site users may abuse this. It is for instance possible to upload large image files, videos even .pdf's etc. without admin being able to stop it apart from manually reviewing media content and possibly banning those who abuse it (though I think this plugin was intended for more intimate groups of collaborators, not a CMS type thing,..)

    Something like the file up-loader of "User Submitted Post" or the old, now depracted "TDO Mini Forms" where admin can limit the file type, sizes and number of files and it automatically attach images to the post will make this plugin sublime.

    Keep up the good work :)

    OK I got something that will work for me.

    It involves using the equally excellent PhotoSmash Gallery Plugin for the uploading and attaching of images to the post in question. The user would then create a post using the "Quick Post Widget" plugin in step 1 and upload images to that new post using "PhotoSmash Gallery" in step 2.

    You may need to tweak it a bit though if you want to allow only Post Authors to submit to their post so that the upload form is seperate from the image gallery but I did write a forum article about it. This would allow the post author to submit images to their post with a very simple browse and upload function into a phot gallery configuration. If on the other hand you want to allow them the ability to insert and manipulate images to sit inside the post content you are probably better off using "Quick Post Widget's" build in image handeling functions.

    Hope this helps.
