Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Whatever change has been made, now photos show up absolutely massive and destroy the ability to browse the forum on mobile... Before, it would scale the images to the width of the screen, now, the images are massive and all the text is small.

Not sure why.  No change has been made to the mobile theme in terms of image spacing

What about this one?

Spokes,
Specifically, what's happening, is that "attached images" are showing up massively wide in the mobile theme.  
If the images are embedded in the post, it's fine (they end up 50% of the column width).  If the images are not embedded in the post, then they show up in the "Attached images" section, and are rendered full size, which is already rather large for desktop, and positively massive for mobile.



Everyone else seeing this?  It's set to not go over 100% so I'm not sure why that's happening for you.

Looks good for me.

Still crazy sized.

See attached. Also, apparently the "insert [image] into post" button doesn't work for me on mobile...

Even on desktop, (Firefox 41.0.2,) you can see that the image is being displayed full size, and is bleeding past the boundary of the page container.

(Embedding this image into the post, so that it doesn't also get cut off on the right hand side)

Do you mean that the upload limit is 1 MB?  If the pictures are being resized anyway, why not allow larger ones?  Phone camera ones are typically 2-3 MB, at least we should allow those to be uploaded (and resized) as is.  Full DSLR image sizes may be impractical in terms of upload and resizing time though.

Ahhh got it.

I was making changes to posted images rather than the attached images.  How's that?

The image is resized within the frame.  The file size doesn't get adjusted when it's attached and uploaded onto the server.

Oooh ... so it's just an HTML resize, it doesn't actually process the image! So it won't help reduce people's data usage or speed up page load times. Sad

Oh excellent!
Attached images are now the correct width on mobile. (They still overflow on Desktop, but that's a very minor issue) Also, I see that embedded images are 100% width too, which is great!

Tom, this whole thing started when I asked if they could be shrunk by the forum software! It was never a feature. Things got confusing because a bunch of people chimed in talking about the display size of images.

Yes ... "resizing" is confusing because there is both a file size and a display size, and it's not clear which one is being resized. Changing display size results in an easier to view site, high-resolution images are still available (within the file size limit). Changing the file size results in the same view as display size, but with faster load times and less Internet bandwidth, but original images won't be available.

We now have display resizing, not file resizing.

That's correct.  MyBB doesn't provide image resizing as far as I know

Maybe that's an issue in Firefox.  I'm using chrome right now and it's a non issue.  I'll try firefox at home tonight.
