i have a blog on YOLA, i used to upload an image directly to the post, but today i noticed that you have changed the File manager/image uploader
now i'm frustrated and i can't upload directly images to my blog posts :(, i have thousands of photos, which makes selecting an image vey hard and time consumer..

I agree with you AbdelrahmanI. If this change is a permanent one, I shant be blogging anymore. For those of us who love to blog on a daily basis it's just too time consuming.

for example i just uploaded an image to place it in a post, the name of the image is 2.jpg, i searched for it...
417 results found for "2.jpg" in My Files!!!!
and guess what it's not the first one among the results! and even the results are not ordered alphabetically...effffff :(

I just realised, I have an online shop with Yola too. This " new system " renders my shop impossible to update stock. I have not long bought a domain for the shop too.
I am really a very unhappy bunny right now. If things don't improve by tomorrow, and enable to to add pictures from my desktop, I shall have to close the shop too.

Hey guys,

We decided to add back in the menu pictured below when uploading images in the blog widget or using the text widget, so we think that should help. We're testing this now and will let you know once we release it.



Further to that we logged a couple of other feature requests based on your feedback to add different sorting options in the future.
