Feature Request: Images in Discussion Messages

I'd love to be able to let my users add images to their messages.

I understand the concern that this could turn the discussion forum into an image-hosting site. So what about letting people paste a URL to an image hosted elsewhere?

I think this would add much value to the discussion board for my users.

Hi Steve-
This is something that has been talked about before, and there is a feature request for it. We might have some difficulty with it on hosted FogBugz because of free account/bandwidth issues, but this would without a doubt be a great FogBugz plugin. Have you considered asking the FogBugz plugin developer community about this http://fogbugzplugins.uservoice.com ?
Thanks!
Brett

FWIW, this has been requested constantly since at least 2006.

Fog Creek clearly is not going to do it.

Please can we keep the tone of the discussion boards positive?

For what it's worth, custom fields have been talked about since before 2006, and they were delivered in FogBugz 7.  We are not trying to play a game here when we tell you that we want to do something.  It's just a matter of resources.

Brett, I'll take it to the plugins link you suggested. I wondered if it was possible as a plug-in myself and flicked briefly through the plug-in API docs. I didn't spot anyway obvious way of hooking into the discussion forums this way.

Happy to!

I think it is also fair to ask Fog Creek to be forthcoming.

In this case, I think Fog Creek was clear: Maybe someone will do a plugin for this.


It would be helpful, I think, to everyone, if Fog Creek was clearer vis-a-vis a road map for Fogbugz. For example, nothing has been added to discussions for what, 4 years now? 5? 

Has Fog Creek communicated that the discussions feature is on the back burner?

As it is, I have to guess at what the road map is.

Other customers may be in a similar situation.
