Wide image display problems

Post by HazelGod » Mon May 18, 2009 5:23 am

I'm using Dirtyboard2.0 as my style, but I'd imagine this same problem exists in any style that puts user info and avatars on the right side of the screen.

The issue is that wide images posted inline get clipped horizontally.

How are you guys working around this problem?

I see two basic approaches: either change the style to put user info on the left edge (where it really should be anyhow), or have the board automatically scale the displayed image using a browser directive.

Post them as attachments and enable image resizing in attachment settings.

Yes, that works, I'm sure...but it seems like an unnecessarily complicated means of getting around a problem that shouldn't exist.

So many people are accustomed to using the IMG tag, I really can't see expecting them to change their behavior.

Install an Image resizer MOD! like this:
[ABD] Reimg Image Resizer (+ lightbox) 0.0.B8

Or this one:
[Beta] Easy Resize Posted Images - phpbb3.0.4

Note that both of them are still in development!

Much appreciated...I got this latest version of this mod installed and it works beautifully for both attached images and linked images.
