Hey Variaas,

This looks really cool.
Probably needs it’s own thread…as not to confuse things here.

iblastoff,

Loving the plugin so far. Installed it on a live site that has a major content update in the works.
It really speeds things up…everyone is stoked!

Thanks Again!

Re: lam_image_uploader v0.6c (improved upload images from the write tab)

thanks all.

although to be quite honest all i’m really doing is hacking/mashing up other plugins and pulling useful parts from here and there. all the credit goes to the original authors stanislav, mary and bastian.

v0.3 is out and should fix an “Attach Article Image” bug that caused it not to work at all :P

What about adding ability to upload img by url? Just past img src to the field and txp will automaticly download it with all further manipulations?

@the_ghost – that’s a good one. Steve, I wrote a function to do this for asv_tumblelog, so feel free to use that to import a url.

Excellent work Steve, you’re on a tear!

I like the function, but had a simple thought for presentation… how about moving it to the sidebar with a collapsible “h3” to integrate more tightly with the rest of the UI.

Currently, the “alt-text” “caption” and “category” use a lot of horizontal space. If you put them in the sidebar they’ll be narrower and you could even give the caption a couple of lines. People could hide or show without losing the obviousness of it’s function.

I started on a hack for this which is pretty simple as you’ve used an iframe, but I wanted to see if you or anyone else thought this would be a good idea.

Once again, many thanks for some great work.

I’ll second that. Works fine for me as-is, but moved to the sidebar would be ideal.

Re: lam_image_uploader v0.6c (improved upload images from the write tab)

mrdale and renobird

I had inquired about the same relocation as well, but at that time Steve was going to leave it at the bottom. If there are enough requests, perhaps he’ll add it as a preference or even make it the default install :). Each of you probably already know this, but in case there is someone who doe not, and would like to move it to the sidebar in the meantime:

The quick fix to move it to the left sidebar is to edit the plugin.

  • Near the top find the part that begins with “function setup_picture_upload”.
  • Below that, look for the line that begins with “echo”.
  • At the end of that line there is a “document.getElementById(“article-main”)”.
  • Replace “article-main” with “article-col-1”.
  • Repeat each time you update the plugin
  • It needs a bit of styling to look right.

I was just beginning to research a collapsible h3 like mrdale suggested, but have never done one before. (I’m almost javascript illiterate at the moment). Also, Amit has an interesting take on integrating it into the UI using thick box. He has started a separate thread about it.
