Posted Images Cut Off Due To Fixed Width

Post by SquaredArches » Thu Nov 20, 2008 4:37 am

The impressively long subject says it all really :oops:

My board is fixed width and when users post outside of the width parameter it cuts the image. I've encouraged users to use the attachment feature instead as this overcomes the issue, but it is a short term fix rather than a true solution.

Can someone please recommend a suitable mod that is easy to install and effective, and will automatically resize the post image whilst allowing viewing members to click to view it full size.

Thanks in advance.

In the ACP you can go to Board Configuration (left side) -> Post Settings .. and then enter a value for the Maximum Image Width (near the bottom).. this should constrain the size of the image if it is over that value..

You can also set the Maximum Image Height here, too..

On the other hand, if you want a Mod that does something fancier for images then I recommend using one of the Lightbox 2 Mods..

Thanks for that.

I've made the changes, but I'm not particularly happy that it only restricts the posting of image, no resize them.

Any other advice?

Usually the lightbox mods work with lightbox (an ajax php image viewing script) so that it creates a thumbnail of the image and clicking on the image shows the full size version (or full screen if larger than screen size)..

There are at least 3 or 4 lightbox mods here.. so you'll need to check them out to make sure they have the features that fit your board best..
