On my forum (3.2.1/ProSilver) its the thumbnails that are put in the lightbox, instead of the original images.
I think I tried all the lightbox options by now.
The + zoom buttom does nothing different than clicking on the thumbnail itself.
Only when clicking on that (ugly) yellow boxed download-link is when the full size (huge) image is shown, and only as a single image in the same browser screen, in effect leaving the forum.
Resize images in signatures:
Apply ReIMG zoom method to all posted images:
still places a yellow box at a signature image.
Anyway to get rid of that yellow box all together, or at least place it outside the image-box?
About image resizing (not refitting to screen);
The phpBB attachment-function might have been offered for years, perhaps in a time when photocamera images and computer screensizes where smaller, but it has never been fully worked out properly as to how people would use it in real life; simple image uploading without having to know how large the image is or how the resize it manually.
Especially not these days when phones and cameras put out huge image-files.
That where good thought-out software comes into play and takes these kinda problems away from users.
Image size 'checking' is nice to prevent possible problems, but it also 'slaps' an (unexperienced) user in the face when the forum comes back with an error that says "Image size too large" (and maybe even leave orphaned imagefiles on the server in the process for the admin to clean up.
With this I agree with poster "dtleahy " above.
FB (probably) doesn't pose these kind of 'show stopping issues' for their sheep
, eh users as they want to grow.
Serverside image re-'sizing' would have been a good step in the right direction for usability.
(IMO it should be a standard option of the phpBB attachment function).
phpBB's attachment function's usability is still not userfriendly enough. (And the lack of serverside resizing is also not user AND admin/webhoster-friendly.) ;
While the drag&drop-into-replyscreen uploadfunction is a nice touch, the actual File-Upload button (what most people will look for/expect to see) is still obscured in a non-active Attachment-tab below the postwindow.
Needing extra clicks to be found and function.
IMO, the Options-Tab and the Attachment-Tab could very well be fused together into one.
I'm sure you have the coding-skills present, why not implement an actual image resizing into your ReIMG-extention?
It's a really missed option, even if most forumadmins don't even know they need it.
For years I've been implementing this mod into function_upload.php on my forums, which worked exactly as desired;
But phpBB's code has changed much since then and function_uploads.php doesn't even exist anymore.
just my 2 cents.
just noticed this topic here; viewtopic.php?f=496&t=2275566
which has the exact same 'wishes' posted of others.
Signatures are overrated...
