I want non-registered users to be able to post in HTML (including inserting images into the post).
So, I've updated the message_control macro to allow HTML posts for non-registered users (by removing the If check on registered user). However, the Insert Image button is not working properly. All it brings up is a tiny blank dropdown box below the insert Image button instead of the normal drop down box that allows you to select the image to be uploaded. Can you help me fix this so non-registered users can post pictures?
I found the problem. Nabble was no designed that way. The file table in the database requires a user_id and anonymous users don't have that information. Changing this part of the code isn't easy and would require many hours of work.
You can keep it for the registered users, which I think will be the mostly on your site, or we can make a button like the "link" button: A button that create an img tag where the user can save the address for a outside image.
I was trying to keep from requiring my users to register and thus have two logins (one to access our website and then another one to access nabble). My site is a creative site, so posting pictures is essential.

I don't think most of my users have a place to load an image that they would link to. Too sophisticated for most of my users (many of them have a hard time even finding the image on their OWN computer).
What is the format of the user_id? Would it be possible to assign a user_id based on the name they enter when they go to post? (as shown here):
Or maybe add a email address field in the same location and use that (you'd know it would be unique to each user that way).
Another idea to explore... Is there a way in the file table in the database to set a default user_id for anonymous users? What I mean by that is say EVERY anonymous user is given the user_id of ANON (or something that is consistent with what the format of the user_id is).
This functionality is VERY HIGH on my priority list of trying to get to work.
Nabble is embedded on my website here: http://www.sudsol.org/members/nabble.php I sent you a login/password via email for you to be able to access this page as it's behind my password protection area.
