Re: Integrating automatic image resizing

Is the request about [img]-Images or attachment-images? For attachments, there is already a resizing for the optionally generated thumbnails, so maybe this code can be used during upload-process. For [img], any kind of resizing can only be done in the browser (eg. by width/height - Parameter for the...

Re: [RFC] Attachments in subfolders

The problem with this is on boards that have thousands of attachments the attachment id may very well have been expanded to a full 32-bit field. So, those boards are modded, and the subfolder-attachment function has also the need be modded like in other cases board owners decide to change default d...

Re: [RFC] Attachments in subfolders

This has the advantage that given a filename hash, it is easily possible to figure out the path to the filename without prior knowledge of how many levels of subdirectories exist. Oleg, thank you for your suggestion. Following your syntax, we will have a flood of new folders on the first attachment...

Re: [RFC] Attachments in subfolders

I would guess this is just a problem because you are using ancient technology (i.e. probably FTP) for creating backups. For example rsync would just work fine and wouldn't care about it at all. I think its a problem for nearly all "normal" website owners residing on shared hosting: They normally do...

Re: Stop cutting off images when "too" wide...

Personally, i dislike large images in post at all for different reasons. But in my opinion resizing is much better than having a scrollbar It should have no effect on browser performance, because in both cases the browser has to load the image complete. Having full-size images, it will break the des...

Re: [RFC] Attachments in subfolders

but a single mechanism that is always used should be enough. Which one would you prefer? My personal opinion: the folder should have a limited "lifetime", so after a defined point (date or number of files) no more files go in that folder. It makes it easier to have complete backups of a folder. so,...

Re: [RFC] Attachments in subfolders

For performance reasons, you're best off keeping the field as a varchar. Especially because I'm having trouble seeing a use case where strlen(directory name(s) + 32 char hash) > 255 Yes, your right, i just wanted to show a possible risk. But, when looking at the way thumbnail file names are build, ...

Re: Signature Preview by Default

Isn't it the same behaviour as the preview button on "normal" posting? So, if there sometimes will be a WYSIWYG-editor for posting, this editor can also be used for the signature. In this case, is there still a need for a preview button (except for fallback reason) or a live preview? An extra javasc...
