Pictures management on the forum

The forum software seems to reduce the width of the large pictures to 690 pixels.

The software also limits the height to 500 pixels.

When a large picture is reduced to 690 pixels wide at a height of more than 500 pixels, the displayed picture can be zoomed in with a click. The file name is also displayed when moving the mouse over the picture.

Here is an example :

If, against a large picture once reduced to 690 pixels wide has a height less than 500 pixels, it is not possible to zoom in and the file name is not indicated.

Here is an example :

So as you can see, in the first case it has the handy feature to zoom the picture, but not in the second case.

It seems to me imperative that any image that has been reduced by the system to be posted on the forum has the possibility to be zoomed.

And considering the type of screen copies with small numbers, etc. this problem is important for the ergonomics of the forum I think.

I do not understand anything. My beautiful theory on the previous post is false. The two images can be zoomed.

But not in this case:

I try to find the cause of this bug. So I’m forced to do tests on the forum.

Here are screens copies of the text of both posts before.

I see no evidence in the code of the files.

And in this post, the problem is also present, the first picture can be zoomed, not the second.

I’m going crazy :frowning:

There I copy and paste the post in which the two images can be zoomed, and … it does not work.

Lightbox images are created when the image is too large (wider than 690 px or higher than 500 px) to fit in a post. When it is not loo large, no lightbox image gets created.

Does this explain the behaviour you have been observing?

Hi Bianka,

If you pass your mouse over the images on my first post, you can see the following:

1609126_Portofolio_B.png · 1155×765 133 KB

It’s always the same pictures.

Therefore the two pictures should be zoomable in all cases.

Except that it is not the case.

And I can not find the whys it works in the first post it, and not on others.

The problem is very visible here.

The first picture is zoomable, not the second.

You are right, the second image does not get lightboxed for some reason. We’ll look into this, thank you for reporting it!

It’s really a vicious bug!

In my previous post, I downloaded two times the same test picture from my computer.

And therefore the first is ‘lightboxed’ but not the second.

The fact that the images are surrounded by text or not does not seem to have any influence.

The crazy thing is that I can not explain why on my first post, the problem does not occur.

I’ve asked on the Discourse Meta forum. Hopefully somebody knows the answer!

I had asked them by email showing them this subject to read, sadly they replied that I was not a paying customer :slight_smile:

This test was performed since my server running Windows Server 2012, whereas normally I work from my Mac Book Pro running OSX El Capitan.

Same problem. So we can exclude a file format problem, operating system, etc.

@bianka,

I opened a profile on the test Forum of Discourse. On their forum, no problem !!

This is a problem of the Darwinex forum !!

A small up for this problem to make sure it is not put under the carpet :wink:

I spent hours on it.

So the problem seems to be on the Darwinex side, and not a bug of the Discourse software.

I guess it’s an IT engineer who installed Discourse on the Darwinex website. If he could try to fix this bug ?

Thank you for your investigation! Our engineers will look into this though I’m afraid we won’t be able to tackle it as a priority issue. What I have observed over the last days is that when uploading the image again, it often does get lightboxed. Thank you again for your effort!

YES !

I found a trick to fool the bug!

As this is the second image that is the problem, but not a third, etc.

I created a small white picture a few pixels tall.

And I insert this little picture almost invisible between the two large images and it works :slight_smile:

This is a game changer you found :laughing:

Are you ready to please share with us your white on white invisible image for re-use ? :eyes:

Very good idea !

Trying to do a test with this code, I wonder if another user can access Direct output to the database of my pictures.
