Automatic image resizing to keep forums uniform
Of then when I stroll around my regular forums, there is a thread that has images, not everytime when someone posts an image is it resized, so it breaks the width of the forum template, and everything is just well, hard to read because lines contonue, the buttons to jump to next page run to the far right side so the vertical scrollbar appears and so on, it's just a mess. My suggestion is automatical resizing, I have few different ideas on how to make this, one is ofcourse the thumbnailer, if you post an image the image is automatically made as thumbnail and linked, but not always users post images, sometimes they link them from other sites, which makes this bit more tricky, without having the original image you can't resize it, so maybe an option to block linking to images, which would piss some users I'm sure. But I'm ready to accept that there is nothing to be done about the linking to images, but posted images are easier. I'd like to see options to resize the image on the fly, when you post an image, you could define it's height and width and the script automatically resizes the image, or the thumbnailing where the posted image is stored somewhere and the thumbnails are linked to the image, which is typical option on many forum softwares. Ideas?
