Just use the image resize bbcode..... for example (quote this post to see how it's done)

What I can probably easily do is write a bbcode that avoids having to wrap the URL BBCODE, so it's a one stop operation.


That sounds like a plan. :thumb:

To stop firefox resizing them. :mad:

Type about:config in the address bar

In the filter bar type browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing

Double click the entry under that to set it to false

Close the tab/window

You can still click an image that is too large to shrink it.

I don't quite get the "similar topics" * section Smeggy
How is this - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10511
similar to this - viewtopic.php?f=17&t=7371

Made me smile though!

I presume it works by comparing threads with similar words in the title/posts.

(* Don't know whether it's a new feature, but I only just noticed it)

Yup that's how it works :) - It's a simple alogorithm. It's difficultto get a computer to work out whether a topic is similar or not. But although it could be improved it would slow the forum down so I decided to keep it simple and it's cool to throw up random topics that we forgot about. :)

Greetings folks. You may have noticed the new orange button displayed on every post. I realised that there was a red button to take us to the top of the page, and a green button to take us to the index page, but no button to take us back to the sub-forum itself. It's orange and it's a button. Click it!!!

:colin: :colin: :obama: says: "yes we can!"

Do you mean where it says 'forum' next to the red and green button?
Mine's not orange.
It's a darker shade of grey than the box it's in.
Sorry for being a pain. ;)

I know what you're gonna ask me lol.

Cheers :)

Yeah I've been thinking about a forum tools menu of sorts. Although the 3 icons across the top is suggesting this area is a great place for a tool bar. I mean it is a tool bar already really :)

Don't forget the feature that's at the top of the topic view on the same line as Topic reply/Search This topic to the right where it says 72 posts • Page 4 of 4 • 1 2 3 4

Click on 72 posts and you'll see who posted in the thread and the number of posts. I could easily add a button to the right of the green button to show this, thus extending the post toolbar.

Any other functions you can think off please post them and I'll see what I can do. :thumb:

Good idea Gumbs! I'd use that lots too.

Another one - unless I've totally missed it, is there a 'empty all PMs' button? It seems to be an awful lot of clicks to empty the inbox & sent box, I don't tidy up often cos it's such a fag!

Yup great Idea! :thumb: :thumb: I did already put the black view new posts bar at the bottom of the topic page, but having it on all posts would save a lot of scrolling indeed!

Consider it done (after I eat :) )
