Affects Version/s: 7.0.0 DXP SP1, Master
When using the Alloy Editor, images can be dragged and dropped into the text field in order to attach them to the comment/post/etc. However, when using this editor for the Message Boards portlet, images in posts are not saved. Note that they are saved in other areas of the platform, e.g. Web Content.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the following in portal-ext.properties for a clean Liferay DXP bundle:
2. Start up the bundle and add a Message Boards portlet to any page.
3. Create a new thread and drag and drop an image into the Alloy Editor.
Image is not saved in the MB post.

To reach full d&d support we need some extra infrastructure at the back-end. It's not enough to allow d&d at the editor level.
Solution for this LPS
Disable drag&drop in Message Board alloy editor.
It's planned to implement full support for this in a new LPS
