Can HipChat use inline images more flexibly


When you insert an image into HipChat it forces it to show up before your comments.  You also seem to be restricted to a single image.

Sometimes I want to send a comment with multiple images shown inline rather than just have my comments serve as a caption to a single image.

For example, I might want to do a comment like this:

I might go to eiffel_tower.jpeg or even pyramid.jpg this year.

I can do that here, but not in HipChat.  Is there a way I don't know about?

Can I check if you are on Cloud or Server offering of HipChat?

Hi, David.

Gotcha. In that case, I would recommend you to check in with the HipChat Cloud Support team to verify the status of your group, whether it has been migrated to Stride yet. Else, hold on to your seat as you will be able to enjoy this feature once your migration is completed and utilize the inline images on Stride. Let me know if you have any other concerns. Happy to help.
