This plugin adds a pixel editor to your forum so that guests and members can create pixel art master pieces. If the user is logged in to the forum, then they can drag and drop their art to their posts to show them off.
To access the pixel editor, look in the Yootil plugin bar (usually bottom left).
- Yootil is required (link)
- Uses a post key

- Basic help dialog
- - How do I open the options dialog?
Double click on the image you wish to edit. If you are the owner or have permission, you will have extra options, otherwise it will show the data dialog. This feature is kinda hidden, so let your members know about it please.
- - How do I delete an image from a post?
If you are staff, or are the original owner of the image, then double click and choose "Delete Art" option. This feature is kinda hidden, so let your members know about it please.
- - How can I set the default scale of images?
This can be done in the plugin settings. Default is 0.
- - My theme is causing the content in the dialogs to be cut off, how can I fix this?
In the plugin settings I have included a global width and height to increase all dialogs by those amounts set.
- - How many images can I save?
Images are stored in localStorage for the browser being used, so it depends on the browser settings. For posts, only 1 image can be save due to key size limit.
- - Can I attach more than one image to a post?
No, because the data for images can reach just under 4,000 characters which nearly hits the key limit, and the rest of the space is used for other data.
- - My member cannot remove an image from their post.
If the image was replaced by a member of staff, then this is the reason. Staff images cannot be removed by members, even if they own the post. This is by design.
- - Can I customise any of the styling?
Yes, mostly everything is styled using CSS in a stylesheet, so you can overwrite those rules. Have a look at the stylesheet on GitHub for class and id names.
- - Can you add X feature?
Probably not, this plugin was meant to be a weekend project, but turned out to take much longer than I would have liked. Maybe in the future.
- - I can't drag and drop my image to a post, why?
Chances are, the plugin can not find the user ID to go along with the post. To verify (staff not included) a post is owned by the user, the user link is required so that it can be matched again the user adding the image. This is a theme issue on your end, though there is an easy solution; Add the user link back, but hide it.
