I apologize if this problem has been discussed before, but I just noticed that when I click on all but the most recent photo attachments (anything up to at least Oct 20), the image becomes even smaller instead of larger.

humm, I haven't noticed this problem. When the picture opens in a new browser window, are you in turn enlarging the window??

What skin are you using?

Usually clicking on the photo would immediately make a bigger photo pop up. Now nearly all photos pop up in a teeny-tiny window. From your tip I just discovered that I can then maximize the window and the photo will get bigger, but it was much nicer before to not have to do the additional step!

It happens in each of the 3 skins, and I'm using Firefox.

Yeah, Jeanne. I notice it too. Pretty annoying, actually... requiring an extra click or two to get the pic window to open up to the appropriate size.

It's another glitch in the software update that we did a couple of weeks ago... Hopefully our programmer can fix it... cheaply!!

I'm not having this problem at all.
  • operating system: Windows XP SP2
  • browser: Firefox 2.0.0.9
  • skin: IPB 2.2.0 Default
The thumbnails show with the new frame (which reports the size and reduction ratio), and when clicked the full image opens at full size (i.e. window fitted to actual image size) in a separate window. Previously, images would open in another tab of the same browser window, which I preferred, but this way is okay too.

I am currently using the Default skin, but I tried it in the other two, with the same results.

I suspect that this may be due to a user's browser preference settings, but I don't know one(s) would be the culprit. It may also be related to a browser version issue: I let Firefox update itself whenever it wants and thus am generally current.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I have the problem, too, the clicked-on photo becomes postage-stamp sized.

I'm using Firefox, OS 10.4 (Mac.) On Safari I get a postage-stamp insert but I can enlarge it to see the photo, but on Firefox the photo IS the postage stamp size, much smaller than the small one shown on the web page.

Okay, you people cursed me... now I'm seeing this problem!
Perhaps it's more likely that I had not been looking at old enough posts.

Examples from Show Us Your Rigs:

Terry's post on 2007 Oct 21
  • top of thumbnail frame says only "Image Reduced"
  • bottom of frame gives file size only (in brackets)
  • photo opens in separate window, always small regardless of image size, with scroll bars which then disappear as browser scales image down to fit window
  • when image window is stretched, image expands to fill window, but only up to correct size
Ricky's post on 2007 Nov 04
  • top of thumbnail frame provides reduction ratio (e.g. "Reduced 50%")
  • bottom of frame gives actual dimensions (e.g. "316 x 240") and file size (in brackets)
  • photo opens in separate window, correctly sized for image

Images of both vintages open correctly when I right-click and choose "Open Link in New Window" or "Open Link in New Tab".

It appears that the older attachments are stored with an incorrect specified window size, while the new ones have no size (and thus let the browser correctly choose), or have the right size specified. I note that the URL associated with the thumbnail hotspot is identically formatted for both cases (http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/in...&type=post&id=...) My guess is that this was introduced in the conversion of data from the previous IPB version to the new one, so only pre-upgrade attachments are affected.

Thanks, Brian, it does that for me, too, if I expand the stamp window I get the regular picture size.

Exactly, Brian.
