Make posting more awesome

When you scroll to the bottom of a thread and use the 'Quick Reply' box, at the top of that box there are icons which wrap bold, italic, underline and quote tags around selected text.
It would be even more streamlined if you added an [img] tag button to this toolbox, as it would save from typing out manually or loading up the full reply page.
The same could be done for hyperlinking, although I personally don't see this as such an important issue.

It does make sense though, considering embedding images is probably the second most used function to quoting.

If anything we could have text size up here as well, because we bypass these censors a hell of a lot.

I think that might be overkill, it still has to be a more streamlined alternative to the full reply page. That's why I don't really care about adding a hyperlink button, because it automatically adds the tags to urls anyway.

Why not just automatically embed images? (Same way links are automatically made 'hyper', and the way YouTube videos are automatically embedded now [though I'm not a fan of the latter])

Not sure about the logistics of that one. I think the YouTube one works because it's YouTube, I am not sure it could be set up for all image's wherever the source.

Just use Ctrl + I for add [img] tag for any selected text.

Any chance it could be done where your cursor is in the middle of the tags rather than at the end of it?

I often find that the [img] shortcut doesn't work and have I to enter it the old fashioned way
I'll try make a mental note of which type of posting/page that this occurs on to be more specific, just a heads up
