Hi Dave and Brian,

My client just asked if it was possible to add the feuser's picture (in 
feuser db) in the blog article. Or multiple images in the form - but is 
this something that is also connected to these hooks you are going to add?

At the moment the wec_forum typoscript doesn't seem to have too many 
options to change the contents of the forum/blog - the looks of the 
forum is very nicely adjustable though :)

Anyway I just adjusted the wec_map with the description and image fields 
of the tt_address table and it was fairly easy to do with the great 

Not possible here I suppose?
