Large Images and Download Links

Post by richard » Wed Oct 25, 2006 8:44 pm

This has been half-implemented for a couple of weeks, but I've been too busy to check things properly, fix problems etc.

Anyway, all images greater than 600x400px in size now appear as download links.

This makes the forums easier to read; reduces bandwidth problems for those who still have dialup connections; and stops forum text stretching to the wide of the widest picture (often bigger than a screen!).

I may modify the image size threshold. 600x400 seems a good start. Images that are higher break up the forums. Images that are wider will upset small browsers and older computer screens.
