Picture & URL questions

  • Hi,

    I've just started with my demo of v5.2 and have a few questions:

    1. Can you limit the size of attachments, both in file size and dimensions (for pictures)?

    2. Can you resize a picture once it has been added to a post?

    3. If you paste a link to a Youtube video, the video appears embedded in you post. Can the same be done for links to websites so that a preview of the content is shown?

    That's all for now, but I'm sure I'll have more questions as I work through the demo.


  • Hello,

    You can limit the filesize of attachments. Limiting the dimensions of images is possible through the client side scaling, however this is currently disabled in Chrome due to a bug in the browser. Images are non resizable in the editor, though fullsize images are limited to the width of the message.

    Pasting links to non media websites does not yield rich embedds due to legal concerns with the upcoming EU Directive on "Copyright in the Digital Single Market". We're keeping an eye on the directive to make sure that we deliver a product that is safe for our customers to use.
