Ah, OK. Thanks.

You have to take the 'borders' in to account as well as the space allowed for the image.

Edit: too late again! :)
Thanks anyway. :)

Oh, one more question. If I set a certain width in the maximum avatar dimensions in the ACP, and someone tries uploading/linking to an image that's wider, will the image be automatically resized to the set width, or will the user have to resize it themselves and try again?

It will be rejected back to the user. I suspect someone will make an extension to auto-resize the avatar but I don't see one at this time.

Thanks. I'm having more trouble now. I can't remember exactly what it was I did that caused the content of my post to overlap with my avatar last night. I've tried a few different manouvres now and all that keeps happening is my avatar expands to full size but gets cut off on the right side. I'm trying to recreate the overlapping effect so I can figure out from there what I should change those percentages to.

Re: Why are avatars being automatically resized?

I've figured it out. I had to change this piece of code

Code: Select all

/* Post-profile avatars */
.postprofile .has-avatar .avatar-container {
	margin-bottom: 3px;
	overflow: hidden;
}
to

Code: Select all

/* Post-profile avatars */
.postprofile .has-avatar .avatar-container {
	margin-bottom: 3px;
	overflow: visible;
}
But although I can now see the overlap, I can't seem to do anything about it. I changed those postprofile and postbody percentages. Just swapped them around, from 22 and 76 to 76 and 22. But that didn't seem to make the postbit any wider. What am I doing wrong?

You would need to change it to 25 and 73 for example, to make the profile width increase.

I'm really not understanding this at all. No matter what I change those percentages to, it's having no effect. I tried changing them from 22 and 76 to 25 and 73. I'm now up to 38 and 60. Still nothing. The postbit isn't getting ANY wider.

Are you leaving the percent sign on the number ex. 25% 73% because it works for me using firefox web developer tools to change it.

This is at 53% postbody and 45% postprofile

Oh yeah, I wouldn't take the percent sign off. It's just not working. Nothing's happening. There must be something else I should change as well but haven't.

Here's what I've tried:

Changing

Code: Select all

.postprofile .avatar img {
	display: block;
	height: auto !important;
	max-width: 100%;
}
to

Code: Select all

.postprofile .avatar img {
	display: block;
	height: auto !important;
}
changing

Code: Select all

.postprofile {
	/* Also see tweaks.css */
	margin: 5px 0 10px 0;
	min-height: 80px;
	border: 1px solid transparent;
	border-width: 0 0 0 1px;
	width: 22%;
	float: right;
	display: inline;
}
to

Code: Select all

.postprofile {
	/* Also see tweaks.css */
	margin: 5px 0 10px 0;
	min-height: 80px;
	border: 1px solid transparent;
	border-width: 0 0 0 1px;
	width: 38%;
	float: right;
	display: inline;
}
and

Code: Select all

.postbody {
	padding: 0;
	line-height: 1.48em;
	width: 76%;
	float: left;
	position: relative;
}
to

Code: Select all

.postbody {
	padding: 0;
	line-height: 1.48em;
	width: 60%;
	float: left;
	position: relative;
}

You also have to clear the board cache in the admin panel before the changes will show up. Also ctrl + f5 will force the browser to reload and clear the browser cache

Nope, it isn't working. I purged the board cache, force cleared the browser cache. Nothing. Tried in two different browsers. Nothing. No difference. Except for the avatar enlarging to full size. That's the only thing that works. It's still cut off though on the right side. No matter what percentages I enter, the postbit will NOT get any wider.
