Addons are custom features that you can add to your Vanilla forum. Addons are created by our community of developers and people like you!
These addons are for people who downloaded and set up their own Vanilla forum. Compare your downloaded version with the version requirements on the right.
If your Vanilla forum is hosted at VanillaForums.com, this addon may already be installed there.

ImgurUpload is a tool that allows users to drag images into their comment box. They will be uploaded via AJAX using the Imgur v3 API. You need to register for API access - see the plugin's settings page for the link to do this.
The front-end of the plugin has code to detect touch-enabled devices and add a fallback "Add Images" button.
Caveat emptor: I have only set this up and tested it on my own forum, but I will be *very receptive* to any feedback provided from users of other forums.
You may also contribute pull requests directly, if you so wish. The repository is at https://github.com/jamesinc/imgur-upload
NB: (2017-08-27) it has come to my attention that the plugin in its current form is not compliant with Imgur TOS. I will be releasing an update shortly that adds a TOS-compliance option to use Imgur's "embed" code instead. Imgur have been pretty friendly so I don't think there's any need to panic unless your forum receives truly massive traffic.
* NB the packaged version of dropzone.js is modified to remove some default request headers that Imgur rejects.
