Outlaw oversize pic files???
« on: November 05, 2011, 09:48:46 pm »

Would it be possible to somehow filter the attachments so oversized "post stretchers" were a no-go?  Please.......

Good point. I will investigate it. Can you provide an example?

We have installed the mod ResizeImagesToFitScreen which does just what it says, resizes images to fit the user's screen.

It doesn't seem to work. I deleted the image that brought on Dick's ire because the poster would not use his real name, but I have seen other images that were larger than the screen. When resize does work it seems to cause the screen to redraw slowing down the page load. I think a hard limit on image size (I vote for 800x600) would speed page loads and decrease file sizes. Images at that size are fine, that is the size I save images to before posting them.

Thanks, Mac.  That's what I was thinking.  I just didn't know if and how a limit could be applied.

Seems the size limit is set by filesize, not image dimensions, with max size being 512KB. The image in http://forums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/topic,134393.msg1260655.html#msg1260655 is only 90KB despite being 1024x768. I'll see what I can find to address the issue. I agree that 800x600 is ample; if a larger image is really needed (as, for instance, in the case of a detailed circuit diagram), then it should be linked, not embedded.

EDIT: Check it now! Turns out to be supremely easy: you just set the max height and width in the Admin ---> Features and Options --> Basic Features --> Maximum posted image size / width. I set the max values to 800 for both.

Well done, Code Warrior!!!  The Federation appreciates your service.
