    Not honestly sure why it's not already there, but I imagine it wouldn't be to difficult to do.

    On the post WYSIWYG Editor system, if you click on the photo icon right after the smile icon it seems you can only get an image from a url, it can get annoying after a while to reference and upload to a s3 host instance.

    Just a nice to have really.

    Thanks.

    What you're asking for I think, is to be able to directly upload media from your computer or phone, to a post or PM. This is a packaged site, not a hand coded one. It's a software package made by XenForo®, bought and installed, settings configured and then run. The coding can't be rewritten or changed; only existing settings can be configured and I know of no setting that would enable direct media uploads. Most things you see here, such as the "likes" feature, etc., are addons that have to be purchased and installed separately as plugins. Things that look to be "built in" actually aren't. It's a modular system and many features are purchased as modules and added to it. I'm on quite a few XenForo® based forums and none have direct upload to posts or PMs. You either link to media stored elsewhere or upload photos to your own albums here and use those. That's how XenForo® designed it.
