[RC] Posted Image Resizer v1.10

Post by Read My Message » Tue Oct 07, 2008 11:25 pm

Modification Name: Posted Image Resizer v1.10 - also known as PIR (pronounced peer)
Author: Ashley Taylor - ashley@getdarker.co.uk

Modification Description:: Very small MOD that will fix the known issue of images over flowing outside of the forum. Very handy MOD for gaming and computer related websites with alot of screenshots etc.
Modification Version:: Version 1.10 - released

Requirements: This mod is compatible with a fresh install.

Features: Simple JavaScript that automatically resizes the images in posts and signatures (any image that is rendered by the BBCode [IMG] tag).

Screenshots:
This is the image I posted:
http://www.planet-mu.com/image/discogra ... stance.jpg
This is a screenshot of it working:
http://img.getdarker.com/uploads/2008/1 ... -image.jpg

Demo URL: http://getdarker.com/forums/viewtopic.p ... =633#p1461

Modification Download: Download soon to come. Please follow the instructions below meanwhile.

------------------------------------------

I give you..the greatest image resizer of all time!!

DEMO: http://getdarker.com/forums/viewtopic.p ... =633#p1461

Update: Fixed the JS. If you found it was opening other images then please re download and overwrite the old one.

Problem/Scenario:
You have your fixed width forum, and someone decides to post an image that is 6 and a half billion pixels wide - and what happens? You can't see it. The forum doesn't stretch and most importantly the image is still half hidden. So what do you do? You install PIR! Posted Image Resizer. This also works for signatures too!

Solution:
PIR uses JavaScript to iterate through every image and checks if it's width is greater than a specified value. If it is, then boy oh boy do we have a suprise! PIR will resize the image and make it clickable. PIR will also display a neat bar down the side that has the text, "Click to enlarge". PIR also display's the pointer cursor icon so it looks like a normal link.

WTF HOW DO I USE IT?
Simple! Follow the easy steps below to install PIR.

-------------

Step 1, includes/bbcode.php
Open includes/bbcode.php

FIND

Code: Select all

<img src="$1" alt="' . $user->lang['IMAGE']
(Line 410 hopefully)

REPLACE THE WHOLE LINE WITH:

Code: Select all

				'img'		=> '<img src="$1" alt="' . $user->lang['IMAGE'] . '" class="posted_image" />',
(basically just adding the class here, this is the most vital piece!)

SAVE FILE AND UPLOAD

-------

Step 2, the side-bar.jpg and pir.js!
side-bar.jpg - Right click the link below and save target as and save it to your machine,
http://getdarker.com/forums/images/pir/side-bar.jpg

pir.js - Right click the link below and save target as and save it to your machine,
http://getdarker.com/forums/images/pir/pir.js

Note: You might want to edit the pir.js file if you want to increase your maximum width past 600 pixels.

-------

Step 3, the upload!
Upload these files to

Code: Select all

images/pir/
This is relative to your forum path, so if your forum is at http://mysite.com/forums/ then it would be http://mysite.com/forums/images/pir/ - comprende?

-------

Step 4, editing the templates!
Log into your admin control panel, click the styles tab at the top, click templates under style components. Edit your current theme.

Select overall_header.html from the drop down list.

Now copy this:

Code: Select all

<style type="text/css">
.posted_image_resized { background-image:url(/forums/images/pir/side-bar.jpg);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-position:left center;background-align:middle;padding-left:22px;cursor:pointer;border:0px;margin:2px;background-color:transparent; }
.posted_image_resized_hover { background-image:url(/forums/images/pir/side-bar.jpg);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-position:left center;background-align:middle;padding-left:22px;cursor:pointer;border:2px solid #cccccc;margin:0px;background-color:#cccccc; }
</style>
<script src="/forums/images/pir/pir.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
Note: You might need to change the paths to the image and the javascript depending on your set up.

Paste this above the </head> tag.

Then on the body tag, add this:

Code: Select all

onload="updatePostedImages();"
So your body tag should look like this:

Code: Select all

<body id="phpbb" class="section-{SCRIPT_NAME} {S_CONTENT_DIRECTION}" onload="updatePostedImages();">
Click submit

--------

Step 5, PURGEEEEEE!

In the admin control panel click the general tab, and then find the button "Purge the cache" and click the Run Now button, then click yes.

Sorted.

Installed.

Go find a huge ass image and post it on your forum to see what happens!

Has anyone installed this and got it working?

I'm after something along these lines and this one sounds like it could be a winner if it works ;)

Once it's packaged up neatly, I may give it a shot. :)

I wrote the guide as I installed it onto my own forum.

Want a screenshot of it working?

This is the image I posted:

Hi,

Can I point you to the MODs In Development forum guidelines, particularly 3a regarding topic prefixes and 5b regarding posting the changes directly in the topic (you should have a download instead).

Thanks,

Also please be sure to use a proper topic prefix, start post format as well as a proper topic title.

The image itself is clickable - but will open the image at a larger size. I am working on a solution that will resize the image, and add a link to view it enlarged but still retains the link defined at first.

Well done for noticing though!

Isn't working with subsilver based themes...It just breaks the size of the forum. Fix?

Works perfectly! Thank you so much! :D

Edit: I've noticed that when you reply in a forum with the large image, that it isn't resized. The page to reply becomes very wide.

Is there any way to sort this?
