Solved Increasing Signature Limits and Image Resizing

Post by Col. StaR on August 5th 2010, 6:06 am

Two things that my forumers hate are the limiting factors in Signature creation, and Images getting cut off.

Signature-wise, the 300 character limit is very limiting, particularly when they try to cram links to other pages in (which is somewhat of a norm). I'm wondering how I could increase or eliminate the character limit for the signatures.

Image-wise, some of the hosted images on the forums get cut off, depending on the size of the image and the style selected. However, some styles are able to shrink the images to fit automatically, while our previous forums were able to host the image full size, and it would expand the forum window to show it all. I'd like to know how to set either method; the latter option is preferred, but we can live with the former as well.

Thanks.

Signature limits have lately been upgraded to 1000 characters in the latest updated.

Well that's good. I hadn't noticed.

Now, regarding those images...

phpBB3 (prosilver)

Also, if there's a way to increase Signature Limits anyways, that'd be appreciated too, just in case 1000 isn't enough. Laughing

For phpbb3, there is no code to resize the images IMO.
For other versions, check here

Are you sure? I just tried out this style, and it resizes pictures to fit within the forum's borders.

It didn't work for any of the other styles, so I guess something in the CSS here makes it work.

Well, i just feel all phpbb3 styles do. I am unaware of what you were using.
My phpbb3 forum does, but there is no specific code to resize them.

Well, the other phpbb3 styles I tried would cut off the pictures. This is the only one that would resize them.

Since both of my questions were more or less answered, I think this thread can be closed.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
