Adding Images in private message (PM)?


#1

As you have read in the title,
my question is: Are we able to add an image/picture in our PMs? If so, How?


#2

Yes. Don’t you see all the notifications by channel managers when promoting a new drama, asking us to file a request or when they are looking for collaborators? They have pictures and even moving ones. There is a code for that.
Ask @piranna.

These codes work for pm and for team/fan notifications:

For pic:

First, you need the url of the pic.
If the pic is already on the net, just copy paste the link.
If the pic is not on internet, you have to upload the pic first on the internet to have a link (to upload a link on the internet for free and for unlimited time: use https://imgbb.com/, https://www.zupimages.net/ (or you can obtain a link if you upload on Disqus or on this forum).

<img src="your link .png, .jpeg, .gif" style="height: 100%; width: 100%;">

You can change the height and width with a number of px, but to keep the ratio, it’s best to work with %.
(Thanks to MaryK who made me work on this, we were testing the codes to know which one would finally work!)

To add a link to a text:

<a href="your link">your text</a>

To add a link to a pic (combine pic+text codes):

<a href="your link"><img src="your link .png, .jpeg, .gif" style="height: 100%; width: 100%;"></a>

To add more space between paragraphs:
in the lines where you would like a blank space, you type the space bar once.

To add emojis or different styles of writing:

You can have this in your message:
▀▄▀▄▀▄ ℙ𝕣𝕖𝕧𝕚𝕖𝕨 𝕋𝕖𝕩𝕥 ▄▀▄▀▄▀

In Team Notes, it’s also possible to have this fancy text, change size, color text, add emojis.

(Irmar, pleeeaaase, forget me! I’m going to add interests :p)

I knew you would come! Thanks a lot, saving this.

@irmar
@piranna

Thank you so much.

I tried, but it doesn’t work. Is it still relevant? :grin:


#7

The Viki inbox is good for nothing. I use this Discussion’s inbox to communicate with my teams, it’s way better than any SNS too.


#8

I haven’t thought about this alternative yet, but it’s a good idea. Now, the only problem is convincing those I team up with. I noticed that one thing doesn’t work: adding / removing members in the discussion.

As for the Inbox, it’s a shame that Viki doesn’t do anything with it. I sent them feedback and asked them to at least add the ability to send pictures and add / remove members from a conversation.


#9

The only downside of the Discussion PMs I’ve seen so far is that the conversation automatically gets closed after 500 messages. But then you just start a new message so it’s not a big issue. In any case, it’s a far better alternative than Viki Mail.
Oh, and people who have their account set on private can’t be messages here. And not everyone even has an account here.

I once removed myself out of a PM with a bot and that did work. :joy:

You can add or remove people when you get to Trust Level 2 or become a Member in Discussions. I see that you’re still at Trust Level 1 so for now, you can only remove yourself from a group chat.

Thank you so much for the explication. I’ll work hard. :smiley:
