I understand but I'm now very confused ...

for example (look here http://www.paranormal.wien/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=52&p=60:
both option are set to 200px.

the first picture in this topic is a link to the picture.
the second is an uploaded picture as attachment with original-width of 261px (what appears strangely as 104px in width). and therefore it does not "use" the lightbox.
You probably missed what I said about this earlier in this thread, but the second image in your link was a thumbnail that was created at some point in the past, when your settings for thumbnail attachments was smaller than 200px (looks like it was 100px).

Once a thumbnail attachment is posted, it remains forever at what the thumbnail size setting was when it was posted.

So that old small thumbnail is going to be stuck at that size, and will behave like a regular old thumbnail as far as opening in a new window, since it is too small to be affected by this plug in.

So the bottom line is:
1. Set the lightbox resize width to the same setting as your current attachment thumbnails
2. All img tag images ever posted on your board bigger than the lb setting will be lightboxed
3. All thumbnails ever posted on your board bigger than the lb setting will be lightboxed
4. All future thumbnails and img tag images bigger than the lb setting wil be lightboxed
5. All thumbnails previously posted with a setting smaller than the lb setting will behave like legacy thumbnails

PS: The only images that can be ligthboxed, are the ones that are resized by this plug in.

hi again ...

ok, please don't hate me !!!
I don't want to bother you in any way, ok ?

But can you please look at this topic: http://www.paranormal.wien/viewtopic.ph ... 7&p=55#p55
I have uploaded the image as attachment (the original-size is 843x1500) seconds ago and now it appears at 112px × 199px.
For me it looks like that the image-height is applied but I don't know if this is from phpbb itself or from the lightbox (as I wrote: both option are set to 200px).

P.S.: Yes ... you can call me stupid if you like :roll:

I can't explain why the thumbnails made by phpBB are making the height max out at the setting you defined for width. I can't find any height settings. Maybe it's a bug. (This plugin only deals with width)

But to be honest, you're better off just using IMG tags. Those always work great, don't have any of these issues, and you don't become responsible for the storage and bandwidth concerns of hosting other peoples images.

And 1 year later the topic is ruined because the images are deleted from imageshack and other services.

I don't see an option to set it up after I activated it.

Same here

After 2 Months in our developer forum for Wing Commander Saga Deutsch/Plus our betatesters and developers found no single bug/problem. It works perfectly. :)
May the backup be with you. Always.

Would like to append an earlier statement/observation.

This extensions plays nice with Extensions Inline images in attachment
BUT, Only to a point.

Apparently with a long list of image attachments only some of the largest images make it to Lightbox, and the others are simply reduced, and do not even have a link.

I have uninstalled Inline images in attachment until hopefully something gets ironed out.

I will be posting to Inline images in attachment as well.

With these 2 extensions side by side....I was getting a beautiful gallery mode of images :/
