Title: Picture Posting
Post by: Zee09 on June 28, 2022, 03:59:25 pm


Is there a way to post pictures with no message content.
I have to post a . (period) or an emoji to post a picture with no text.
Thanks all.

I assume it give the message body was left empty error? 

Seems like we could add a check for attachments + text before setting that notification.  I think it would require edits to both the form submittal function (JS) as well as the post controller.  But right now you need to add some text.

Not exactly what you are asking but you can post your picture as inline attachment

@spuds  yes I use a period, but it is no issue except for new members who come from other forums like Xenforo.
Yes, I get an error until I correct it with something in the text line

I put a "hidden message" in the text - "hidden", by changing the text color to white to match the background.

Shhhhh... don't tell anyone.. Let them find it.

Might as well have some fun with it..

You got me wondering... I hate signatures where people list 50 things on every post, but they could
directly post a picture without any issue..right?
Edit
Just tried it- it did not work..

Probably because the code for making it "inline" is considered "text"?
