I've installed the TinyMCE plug-in. When I comment on my forum and select the 'Insert Image' button, the box opens but I am not able to select the folder that I want to insert an image from. Basically I need to know how can I insert images into my forum posts. (Not the Attach File option) Thanks

Hi mysisterskeeper,

You don't need to install TinyMCE plug-in, it'll affect wpForo editor. We'll add image inserting button in next releases.

I had the TinyMCE Advanced plugin installed already and I'm just curious; how does it adversely affect the wpForo's editor? It seems mostly compatible - I don't see the toolbars but the right-click functions and menu are intact.

Hi Teratoma,

wpForo uses WordPress built-in functions to display TinyMCE editor. It comes with all necessary WordPress hooks so it should be extended by other plugins which support front-end mode.

WordPress only displays Image Button on |Text| mode, it doesn't show image button on |View| mode. wpForo has only View mode, the HTML source is only available in popup textarea once you click on {:} source button. Image button adds <img src="".... HTML code, it can't be added in View mode, all "<" symbols  will be replaced to "&lt;" and it'll not work.

Hmm, I'm not sure I follow. In view mode, I cannot enter HTML, but that is true all over Wordpress, so I wouldn't try that anyway.

TinyMCE Advanced doesn't seem to break anything, but lets me insert and format linked images by URL, tables and a few other useful features. It definitely saves time - am I missing something?
