Send images in OssnMessages Download 2.1

Breton Rafael Amorim 6 months ago

An improvement on OssnMessages component to allow the user to attach images. Images also appear properly into OssnChat component, but isn't possible (yet) send images through this component.

If FancyBox component is enabled, images can be open in fullscreen mode.


OSSN message system has 2 components. The OssnMessages is used in mobile version and OssnChat is the small chatbox at bottom of the page. At this version, this component only works with OssnMessage. Maybe someone here can help me to develop this part of the component :-)

The photo icon appears, I select the photo, it seems to send it to the chat partner. There is no message after that I sent the photo, no photo. OSSN 6.1

Good but one thing is you should not store those static files in

> ossn_get_userdata("tmp/photos/");

This is temporary folder and all photos may lost!

Maybe you can create new folder ossn_get_userdata("messages/photos/")

Things may become difficult for you in case message item deleted and the image file still exists :)
