Image problems

Postby SmorgasBorgnine » Wed Feb 20, 2008 9:32 am

Admins, my signature has been having some issues. It keeps saying It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. I took it off, just so my sig looks decent, but this could be causing others problems, as well. I'm sure you have bigger fish to fry at the moment with the board upgrade, but it is something that you might want to address down the road. It seems to be an issue with one of the board settings, see below:

Happ, are you referring to your signature or avatar?

Because as far as I'm aware that's only an error when you're trying to upload an image for your avatar. In testing the board, I've discovered that can be potentially overcome by manually entering the image dimensions on the upload. This forum is currently set that avatar images must at least be 20 pixels (width) by 20 pixels (height) but no more than 200 x 150.

For signatures, I've set it up so that people can't add signature images exceeding 990 x 330.

It was signature, my avatar is fine. I had a gif(http://img293.imageshack.us/img293/4562 ... 533ja0.gif) 350x19 signature image, also attempted to do a .png image as well...neither one would show up.

Happ, I fixed the problem. I think it had to do with the fact that it was an animated GIF. What I did was create a custom BBcode just for you in which it automatically set the dimensions for the image (350 x 19) when you used it. You are welcome to edit the image's placement by going to your signature. Just make sure you wrap the images URL with the BBcode:

[happ]image[/happ]

Others of course can let me know if they're having image difficulties, as I can create similarly temporary fixes until at a later date I take the effort to fix it on a more "universal" scale by tweaking whatever code.

Thanks, Pudge, it really wasn't a big deal, just trying to give you a heads up. You're the man!
