The following features have been introduced. Pl. check the relevant screenshots.
1. While Posting News, a new "Fetch Article" button has been added. After you paste the URL in the box, clicking the button will fetch the News Title, Article and all the pics from the page. The Article and Title will need to be cleaned up and edited in some cases - removing irrelevant material. One of the pics may be chosen to add to the News Article. If the News Article has already been added, a box will alert you - so there is no need to paste the entire content, before finding out. (Screenshots 1, 2, 3 and 4).
.

2. While adding Attachments to Blogs, a new Paste URL box/Fetch Pics button have been added. You may paste the URL of the page containing pics, and on clicking the Fetch Pics button, all the Pics in the URL will be shown. You may select one or more pics to be directly posted in the Forum. So, now there is no need to download and re-upload pictures. Also, the source link of the page will be added to the blog text - so that source credit is not missed. (Screenshots 5, 6 and 7)
.
3. IRI also has a Chrome Extension available in the Chrome webstore If you install this on your Chrome browser, you may go to any webpage, right-click the mouse button and directly upload News Articles or Post Blog Pics. (Screenshots 8 and 9)
.
4. Now you can directly Rate News Articles. After Rating, that particular News Entry will come to the top. News Articles have full blog features. Hereafter, they won't appear in the main Blog Forum.
.
Thanks.

The article and pic fetching will work in about 80% of the cases. For the rest, a case-by-case modification will be made. In this case, the pic is not being fetched because it is a png image. We are currently fetching only jpg/jpeg images. The reason for this is that most websites have dozens of ads, logos, etc. in the png format and there will a clutter of dozens to choose from.
.
Once we are able to filter out irrelevant info, we shall also add png fetching.
Thanks.

    @all: There are some changes coming to the PNR Forum. 1. All PNRs will be anonymized, i.e. you won't see who posted the PNRs or search PNRs by Traveller.
