Copy and Paste - UK Sentinel - 2016-03-22

Hi All

I have had a look through the Forums, but could not find a match, I am setting up a new Forum via MyBB 1.8.6 and using an iAndrew skin, could somebody tell/explain to me if copying an image (not text) from say word or say a screen dump is possible, I know how to insert URL and insert an actual image file, but the copy and paste option when posted turns into a high number of back end coding?

Does MyBB support Copy and Paste?

Any guidance most welcomed

Many thanks for response, does that also apply for say screen dumps?

Is there a plugin available or does copy and paste present security issues etc?

I am unable to recall if there is any method of image pasting from clipboard to MyBB editor ..

however if you can make a temporary image on your computer then that image can be
uploaded to a image host (like imgur) and automatically inserted into MyBB editor.

Understood, that was what I had noticed in other forums, thank you for all prompt advise and i will make a note upon my forum that images can be uploaded to imgur as you have described.
