Why no simple upload button for images? (4 posts)

    Nice plugin, but senseless for all Internet Explorers (like me) - and don´t force us to change the browser - thanks. I want to choose by my own, which browser I like to use.

    With the Internet Explorer (I am using IE9) it is NOT possible to drag & drop images into the textfield. In WordPress it is the same problem with uploading pictures into the mediafolders...

    Why are you not delivering a simple Upload-button? The drag & drop functionality can still be alive, but for all those who a) are not able to drag & drop because of their browser or b) just don´t WANT to drag & drop and like to stay on the page and use an button it would be a nice (and usual) feature.

    Another question: How about some buttons for BOLD text or italic text and so on?

    Will you update that to the next version, please?

    P.S.: And YES, it would be the greatest feature if it were possible to fill that liveblog using an (iPhone, iPad, Android?) app. Not everyone is using a laptop or so... and the option to tweet new posts and so on :-)

    Hey meerderideen,

    Better upload methods and formatting are on the roadmap for the next version: https://github.com/Automattic/liveblog/issues?milestone=5&state=open

    but I cannot find something about uploading pictures using the desktop-computer on your roadmap. Just something about mobile uploading. Will there be an upload-button for usual browsers soon?

    I suspect most of my live blogging will be done from an Android phone in one hand with a placard or flag in the other. Image uploads from Android would be pretty essential.

    It's good to know it's planned (or 'on the roadmap' if you prefer) for the next version.
