Some Gallery Questions?

Some Gallery Questions? - 08/19/17 08:16 PM

Is there a way to add a photo to an existing Gallery thread (or post)?

I thought attachments were enabled for the Gallery, but I only see "image manager' not "attachment manager"
Adding a image to a post using image manager changes the thumbnail in my Gallery Island, but it does not appear in the Gallery thread (or post) itself.

see: https://www.electrical-contractor.net/forums/ubbthreads.php/galleries/218694.html


Also, is there a way to have a new reply to a gallery show up in a "recent posts" Post Island? The Gallery is not listed in the available forums dropdown menu.

1) There is a bug in 7.6.0 that allows attachments to be added to replies in Gallery Topics. The option to add attachments to gallery posts is offered, but since they are not OP's images, and are not within the OP of the Gallery Forum, they are not displayed.

Gallery Forums are intended to all be related to the main Gallery Post.
These are intended to be like a physical gallery. One where you go to this destination and see the works that an artist has created. You can go in and enjoy the works, but you cannot bring your own items and set them up next to the OP's work -- you need to make your own Gallery Topic to display your own gallery.
ex: http://www.deviantart.com/

Topic Forums are where users can contribute additional media to the OP's topic.
ex: your traditional discussion forum.

I know the distinctions between the two are a bit blurred at the moment. Its something that is being worked on as all the newly requested (by other forum admins) attachment features/tools are being added.

Along those lines I can see where it might be useful if the OP could add additional items, perhaps as attachments

Right now a new reply to a Gallery thread shows up in 'Active Threads' and 'Active Posts', but it can't show up in a 'Post Island' because Gallery is not included in the list of Forums to choose from.
