(Mobile) pics or it didn't happen January 30, 2012 10:10 AM   Subscribe

Pony-on-the-go request: Can we get a link to photos for a given meetup on the mobile IRL site? I know this was discussed as a potential addition when IRL was first rolled out, but I haven't been able to find any mention of it since then.

Yeah, I think we can find a way to add that. In the meantime you can switch to the standard view at the bottom of the page.

This would be awesome.

I just added a couple links to a new page that shows the photo info you see in the standard sidebar. Here's what the links look like on the page.

It works the same way as the standard sidebar. As the event date gets close (within 6 hours or so I think), the ability for members to add photos shows up. If you're logged in you can click the "Add Photos" link to do that. If photo links have already been added there will be an additional "Event Photos" link that lets you know that. Click that to see the list of photo links.

The two links take you to the same page, but separating them like this will let everyone know what's available—just like we do with the attending sidebar stuff in the mobile view.

W00t! Thanks! (Although I don't see the link on the page at the moment. Should it be showing up already, or does it still have to be pushed live?)

Yay pb is a bacon-wrapped angel.

I thought recliners and blunts were what it looked like when pigs fly. But okay, to each, own.

Awesome! Look forward to using this (if I remember) at tomorrow's Chicago meetup.

I'd never wish that anyone who might enjoy it would not have the joy I receive from Metafilter, but I'm very tempted to steer any professional acquaintances way from here. I would never want to work with a client or manager whose entire basis for "how those Internetty things work" comes from watching pb respond to requests. Because I'd never be able to clear that bar.
