This may be beyond the scope of this discussion board.

1. What I would like to do is add an image selector to the Quick News Post page. I would like for this image selector to choose an image from the /Upload folder

I then want to save this as a string and then use the image as a link, with the "Title" text displayed over the image. Any ideas on where to begin?

2. Another poster told me to simply limit the length of the <# NewsShortContent #> tag. This is not quite as elegant as I want it to be. Unless, is it possible to display a tag like <# NewsShortContent #> in a <background="..."> or <img src="..."> If this is possible, how would I accomplish this?

Thanks again excellent support thus far.

Hi Nicholas,

let me give you few guide lines but note that his is custom development and it's beyond the scope of this support as you mentioned.

1. You will need to 
- Amend FileGallery WebPart in order to have events necessary for you to choose the images
- setup FileGallery to display only wanted images (Note: there are many WebParts saving images to Upload folder so you need to specify what to choose by setting ParetnEntityId) 
- edit Quick news post WebPart and add FileGallery in order to choose an image from uploads

2. You will need to choose from two approaches
- Amend News WebPart in order to support different tags
- user NVelocity ( syntax to trim down the chars

Let us know if you need more information.
