Group SubForums by First Letter

I have a "Showcase" Forum for models of the '59 Plymouth, and a page for each owner of a particular model: http://59plymouth.net/59forum/viewforum.php?f=22 In that particular example, you can see that the list of subforums - one per owner - gets to be quite long. What would be great, is if I could s...

Re: Plupload and Image Orientation Redux

If someone posts a picture, say, 1024x768, and I've got the maximum dimensions set to 1280x1024 - will plupload fail to do its thing? In other words - if no scaling of images are required because the dimensions are under the maximum, is plupload not invoked (and hence, that image won't get rotated ...

Re: Plupload and Image Orientation Redux

Out of interest. Your thumbnail is 3.45 Mib. What is the file size of the original image? When you hover over a thumbnail, phpBB reports the size of the image that will pop up when you click the thumbnail, which is 3.45MB. If you right-click the thumb, save it and examine it, you will see that the ...

Re: Plupload and Image Orientation Redux

OK, well *I* had a thought. How can it be that it's working for some, and not for me? So I cobbled together a little plupload webpage from the example here , and uploaded a file; it did not change the orientation. Then I edited the html to include: resize: { preserve_headers: false } And doncha know...

Re: Plupload and Image Orientation Redux

Ah, I see. OK until you 'expand'. Over to KYPREO. Good way of presenting images though - particularly for technical shots that users want to 'zoom'. I'd be interested in a 'how to' - particularly if the orientation issue can be resolved. Yeah, the thumbnail on the page was produced on the fly using...

Re: Oversized Image Resizing (Server Side)

Hmmm... My mileage varies with regard to orientation. Check this post.

Re: Plupload and Image Orientation Redux

I made the edit you suggested, purged the cache, and uploaded the image in my previous example again - still no love:

Plupload and Image Orientation Redux

I'm running 3.2.7 in production. When I produce thumbnails with ImageMagick on image upload, I use the -auto-orient flag to reorient any non-horizontal images and reset the EXIF tag. When the thumbnail is clicked and the full image is presented, I've been relying on the browser to present in the cor...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

As far as you issue goes a quick check for compatibility in browsers for h.265 and there is only partial support in IE and Edge if there is hardware support, in other words you need onboard hardware decoder. Only Safari 11 and above has full support. No other browser supports it. This explains ever...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

That said, your utility proves useful. Here's the analysis of the file uploaded from my iPhone, and downloaded to Windows: uploaded from iphone.JPG HEVC is apparently an H.265 compression standard, a successor to AVC, on which H.264 is based. Which, is the attribute of the file copied to Windows, up...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

But for .mov's uploaded from iPhones, it only plays on the iPhone! Here's the story... You can use this to analyze both videos: https://www.videohelp.com/software/MediaInfo The context of my quote above, is with regard to my customized code, which tells the browser that it is an .mp4, whether the u...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

For the record, in Firefox on linux the are all working. Interesting! Firefox on my Windows desktop exhibits the same behavior as Chrome; (2) will not play. I suspect it has less to do with the browser, than it does with the default player for the OS. And in my case, Firefox gave me the option to d...
