I'm sick of prosilver.

No, it's not because avatars are on the right. It's not because everything is round either. It's because there's no way to get large images to show properly without clipping or resizing. I've tried to get it to work, but at most I achieved side effects I didn't want, like scroll bars under each post that had big images. Too bad, really. I'm going back to subsilver2 from now on. :ugeek:

If you search on the main site a 'fix' has been posted several times. Try searching for topics where people have complained about cut off images.
But one way or another you'll have some sort of consequence of stretching the page width.

I've searched the site a dozen times and all I find are resize mods.

That's a resize mod.

twisi, you have several options of dealing with oversize images:

1) you can just disallow images completely.
2) you can allow images, and let oversize ones to trash the site appearance (phpbb2 way).
2a) you can allow images, and let oversize ones to trash the appearance, but only that of a single post (phpbb3 subsilver2 way).
3) allow images, and truncate the ones which are too large (prosilver way)
4) allow images, and resize the ones which are too wide (the various resize mods)
5) allow images, and contain the ones which are too large in a scroll-box.

if you want to use #5, which i don't think any of the resize mods supports, you do the following:
in includes/bbcode.php, find the line
'img' => '<img src="$1" alt="' . $user->lang['IMAGE'] . '" />',
and change it to
'img' => '<div style="overflow:auto;"><img src="$1" alt="' . $user->lang['IMAGE'] . '" /></div>',


otherwise, i'd like to understand how would you rather prosilver behaved with oversize images?
if you prefer just displaying the full-size image, i would like to point out that once the image is wider than your screen, you get a horizontal scrollbar anyway, except that instead of scrolling just the image, you now have to scroll the entire page. i can't see the advantage.

The reason why I want full size images is simple - if a user posts screenshots of any game or video to judge the graphics or image quality, the last thing we want is scaling artifacts to get in the way, which are inevitable in any browser resizing. Also it's a huge advantage for the whole page to have to be scrolled when lots of such images are posted, as you can do side by side (or rather top/bottom) comparisons more easily.

But yea, what I want is 2a of the list you posted...

you should try to change the value of the overflow attribute of the .content class from hidden to none.

it may not do what you want exactly, but i think it's a good first step.
you may also want to move the mini-profile to the left-hand side. there are numerous explanations of how to do that, both here and on the main site.

good luck.
