does the site iq or iq meta support msConvertURL? so that I can paste image directly from my pc on the site when posting with out having to upload the image on the web.

if you do not know what I am talking about here is a link.

will also add that you need a new browser to do this like internet explorer 11, I do not know if google browser newest version support this yet or other brand of browser.

if you try to copie paste from your pc to the web on the test page in the link you will see if your browser is up for it.

as for my question is those the site support it iq or iq meta?

I did not try it to not cause problem to the site in case it is not up for it.

having the capability to do this save you many step to bring a photo from pc on the web.

other wise you need to upload the picture to the web then find the url to put the picture in your post.

here is the coding to do it if you ever decide to try it:

<html> <head> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge"> <title>Improved Web Paste</title> <style> #pasteZone { width: 75%; border: 1px solid black; padding: 1em; } </style> </head> <body>

Paste in some HTML that references one or more local images (i.e., on the local file system).
<script> var blobList = [];

document.getElementById("pasteZone").addEventListener('paste', handlePaste, false);

function handlePaste(evt) {
  var fileList = window.clipboardData.files; // Note that window.DataTransfer.files is not applicable.

  if (!fileList) {
    console.log("fileList is null.");

  for (var i = 0; i < fileList.length; i++) {
    var file = fileList[i];
    var url = URL.createObjectURL(file);

    if (evt.convertURL) { // Use standard if available.
      evt.convertURL(file, "specified", url);
    } else {
      evt.msConvertURL(file, "specified", url);

    console.log("Local file: " + + " (" + file.size + ")");
  } // for
} // handlePaste

</script> </body> </html>

I believe it does or something like it. I think my Jaianniah uploaded pictures directly from her laptop.

thanks @wade Casildi for the answer but did she upload it to the web using a web service or a cloud service then import the url to get the photo in the post. or did she copie paste it from a clipboard, Microsoft word or a photo program and paste it directly in the post?

@whitetiger Yes, you can add pictures directly from your computer w/o using a web based service. Just click the image icon. Then click "choose file" & select the picture you want to insert from your own computer & press ok.

thank you @ele for your comment I know that. I am asking if I can copie paste directly from my computer to the web page.

@white tiger Sorry I misunderstood. Not to my knowledge. I tried that myself & it did not work. It would be nice if it was an option & someone could tell us how to do this.

@ele well I have sent what I have find so far but I am just a user so Simon will have to do is job to make it work since he made the web site and owns it. you probably need to input some coding for data url or blob to work. to be able to paste directly on the web page. I have found some coding from ms about this and wiki that I have posted in the question:

No, we do not support that and I don't see a viable reason to invest resources in developing support for it. At present, any user can already upload an image from their computer to be hosted directly on Inward Quest (or Meta) in a few mouse clicks.
