The TR Add/Edit pages now have a PREVIEW button under the report text box. This should save time when editing your report since you no longer have to Save...View...Edit, Save...View...Edit...

I'm pretty sure this one will be helpful :-D

The same type of preview has been added to the TR comments section

Bill, I like the preview button option when posting a report.

Are there plans to add a float (image) center option in the future?

Done.

I added a "center" button on the TR Add/Edit pages and it can be used to center a block of text or one or more images on a single line. Keep in mind that FLOAT LEFT and RIGHT tags will always override centering so they should probably not be used inside center tags. Here's the sample trip report where I've centered 3 images

When editing, here's the help info for centering:

One small thing I noticed that there was no pink font available in the TR menu. I used "violet" which was the closest on the color scheme.

P.S. Magic :) Thank you Mr. Bill.

Vimeo videos can now be inserted into trip reports, in addition to YouTube.

I try to use canned plug-ins and not reinvent the wheel when I can, but this time it would have required too much customization due to the way the TR images are attached and a few other things. Since these plug-ins often release updates, I didn't want to have to re-apply and test that customization each time a new plug-in version was released.


Is a text editor plug-in something that would allow text breaks or text boxes?

I've been toying with the enhancements in a couple of my reports, and making my text flow with the photos has been the main challenge. I have to hit 'enter' multiple times to get the text placed in the report where it will have a proper appearance, or at least to me.

Also, in the preview page, it doesn't recognize certain characters (e.g., an end ' will have the question mark icon, as will a -- mark).
