[feedback] Image upload directly in the write tab

Hello all!

Upload the images directly in the write tab (either as a article image or just positioned left, right, center) would necessarily have to be integrated into Textpattern.

This is the biggest weakness compared to WordPress!

Is this planned?

Yes it’s planned at some point in the future.

First we will be working on a grid display view for images, then investigating modal (popup) boxes for edit screens. If that goes well then it would hopefully be easier to integrate images into the write screen.

Re: [feedback] Image upload directly in the write tab

gour, have you discovered bot_image_upload yet? The current, most popular, plugin solution. Used with abl_droploader, it really makes uploading images a breeze. Yes, in the Write panel.

No, not at all.

I must admit I’m a bit overwhelmed with Textpattern…it feels really great and very capable to solve all my present and future web needs, but, otoh, it is definitely a bit different from everything I’ve seen so far (I must say that Tiki is also unusual CMS which I still evaluate along with Textpattern), so I need some time to connect missing pieces to (better) understand how everything works. :-)

While being engaged with it, I just wonder if there are some projects for which it’s not recommended to use Textpattern? (FAQ says that practically everything is possible, but still wonder is something is recommended ‘no’.)

I’m sure that txp may be inappropriate for some sites (none come to mind). From your initial post here, all can be done. As your requirements grow nevertheless, a wall will eventually appear. That’s where the plugins come in.

Re: [feedback] Image upload directly in the write tab

I’m experimenting with FormData submit. As a byproduct, uploading images (or files) from Write tab is a few-liner plugin. If somebody wants to test:

# Name: abc_article_image v0.3 
# Type: Admin/AJAX plugin

Re: [feedback] Image upload directly in the write tab

etc wrote #299057:

uploading images (or files) from Write tab is a few-liner plugin.

OK, first of all: yes! Regardless of whether the remainder of your prefs patch manages to get squeezed into 4.6 before final release, I think this commit ought to be in core, as it continues the tradition of fixing containers to shield plugin authors from markup changes, as well as laying the foundations for plugins such as this one.

That said, the plugin needs a couple of tweaks so it works for me. Firstly to fix this error:

PHP Fatal error:  Class 'txp_thumb' not found

(just need to include_once lib/class.thumb.php; for those of us that have auto thumb creation on).

Secondly, I small possible enhancement. Could you add a check for suitable privs before rendering the file browser widget? If someone doesn’t have privs to be able to upload images (or manage their own images) then they shouldn’t be able to upload them from the Write panel at all. Otherwise, I think you’d get the situation where they could select a file for upload, hit Save and find it doesn’t get saved, which is confusing UX. Might be wrong as I’ve not stepped through the code, just glanced at it so far.

Otherwise, a worthy idea. And if your commit lands in core, this plugin is a nice stop-gap solution until we can address image additions fully. Bravo!
