Ok, I'll try to elaborate on how it is designed to work.
In the Marketplace, when creating (or editing) a classified ad you can:
1- Upload some images
2- Drag and drop images in the desired order
3- Hit save and your images should display in your ad, exactly as you ordered them
4- Not ordering images will result in images getting sorted by their filename.
Dragging and dropping uploaded images in any desired order
In the forum (regular forum posts, not marketplace ads), things are slightly more complicated, because images actually get inserted into the post text via an image attachment code, which looks like this:
An image attachment code looks like this
So for forum posts, it works like this:
- Upload some images
- Drag and drop images in the desired order (only possible for new posts or when editing posts that had no images before)
- Hit "send post" and your images should be auto-inserted into your post in the order you specified. Note (by editing the post you just made) how the Pinside system has automatically inserted image attachment code(s) at the bottom of your post, in the order you specified by dragging, or by the default (filename sorted). You can move these codes around in your post text, as you wish.
- Or, before hitting "send post", you can insert uploaded images into the post yourself, using the + button when mousing over an image. In that case the system will no longer auto-insert an attachment code for that image (since you already did that). Any images you do not insert into the post text yourself will automatically get added to your post in the specified sort order (or by the image filename).
Using the + icon to insert an images somewhere in your post
Only new posts (or posts that had no images before you edited them) can be re-ordered via drag and drop
Once a post has images attached to it, you can no longer re-order via drag drop. Any new uploads to that post will have to be inserted manually in the order you desire (or the system will do it for you, based on filename).
It's all fairly simple, but kind of hard to explain. I hope the above does the trick.
