How to insert images and attachements to the comments

  • retag add tags

Is it possible to insert attachments to the comments?

I see that comments can have markdown editor and that it is possible to insert code blocks there. But we are trying to understand if we can use Askbot as a support forum for software products, and one of the use case is bug reporting. If a user makes post with file attached we can post an answer when we fix a bug. But what if that bug still exists and user want to add a comment with another data in file? How would you recommend to work with such use case?

Try configuring the comment editor to be the same as the editor used for the questions and answers in "settings -> data entry and display -> comment editor".

We'll make this setting default in the future.

I set it, and comments editor allows to specify formatting, but there are no buttons to add attachments or images in the comments editor

right, I see, those buttons were disabled for the comments:) something to work on.
