Solved Images getting cut off

Post by Rat on April 3rd 2014, 1:43 am

Hi all I'm Rat

Not my first forum but my first non vb forum and I'm a complete noob.

All my images are getting cut off on the right side. Soooooo annoying I'm sure its something silly but I cant seem to find it.

Also any advice or suggestions on the easiest method of handling images? I would really prefer if i could just let my users upload them directly even if it cost me more but i cant seem to find that option.

I'll refrain from posting a link to my forum until i understand the protocol ...

If you right click one of the images in that thread and open the image in a new tab you'll see what I mean how the image is being cut off.

I'd be happy to take a screencap but It wouldn't really show a description of the problem we've been having but if you look at any image on the site such as the one in the link above or the following and actually open the image in a new tab you'll see there is a considerable portion being cropped out somehow.

TIA Kite I had to put some spaces in there because I'm not allowed to post links yet.

I think the problem is the size of the images. You can resize them with a photo editing program or Find the Insert an Image button in the text editor, and resize from there.

You will need to edit your posts and change it to any size you would like.

Go back and change every image on the forum? Is there away to auto size the image or a way to set a universal standard?

I believe you will have to manually edit them, but instead of doing that resizing you can make it like:
Code:
[img(500px,200px)] [/img]

I think perhaps this is a fatal flaw. I can't have an image rich technical forum with no pics or only very small pics. it seems to be cutting off everything over 400px

Hello Rat,

For phpbb3 the overflow is hidden on most elements to prevent the forum from being stretched. If images are too large, they will be clipped.

You can activate automatic image resize here :
Administration panel > general > messages and emails > configuration

Find images resize, and set the dimensions you want the images to be resized to.
