A few website tweaks

The web pixies have been busy with a few minor tweaks to our site. The biggest change is the addition of a new "one click image upload" button.

This will enable you to add a picture to a post by clicking the button and selecting the file from your local drive. No need to upload it to the site first. The picture is reduced to 640px across preserving the aspect ratio - I welcome feedback on whether that is about right. It seems to work OK on an iPhone as well but I haven't got an Android device to test on.

Secondly, search results will now default to date order, most recent first.

Other changes are minor tidy ups to some unrequired icon keys in the forums.

Automatic resizing - well done.  Essential for when we are looking at BC on mobile devices.

When is this happening?  My PC and iPad don't have the new button, my Android phone has nothing but a grey box saying "Text formats options" which does nothing.  (I don't recall ever trying to post from my phone.)

Might be a permission issue. I can see it as an admin but not on my test account. Will get it fixed.

I found the setting so hopefully the button is visible now. Please try and let me know if it works.

Because the image is resized, it can take several seconds before the image is displayed so please be patient :-)
