The burger is still not working or is it me?
My ForumAvatar has gone missing?
Also,the "Images" Folder?
Image resize in the forums doesn't work (the one where it says "click this image to show the full size version") - it just expands over all the posts below it. Take a look here for an example - click the Lion King image to see what happens.
It enlarged for me :/
Same for me with that Lion King image at least. It does this:

Same on Edge, Chrome and Firefox.
I guess it could be argued that it does the job, effectively overlaying the expanded image over the background thread. If that is the intended effect it would probably work better if the expanded imaged looked like it was in a window rather than just overlaid like it is.
I'm not saying that the enlargement doesn't happen, I'm questioning whether it should expand over the posts beneath it.
Maybe it's just me being funny, but I don't like the way that it overlays the other posts - perhaps it's just that I was expecting the old forum way of doing it, which was to expand the image in-line so that the post it was contained within grew in size as well, rather than just the image.
If it is supposed to grow like that, I like your idea of putting some kind of border around it, or even just dimming the background behind the image.
I don't know if this has been reported but why do I need to login twice, once for the main site once for the forum?
aaah, my mistake, I read what you were saying incorrectly. It is working as intended, but no doubt @MLyons will try and take your ideas on board if he can
Did the swear filter not make it across to the new forums? I'm seeing a few of our more passionate members with a lot fewer asterisks in their posts than usual.
Looking into it.
Should be fixed now
Will see if it can be done better. It due to a security thing i thought we needed but i can look into it.
EDIT: Ok this is easy to do but if you know how you can make the forums a PIA to use. I'll see if i can come up with a better way of doing it and if not I'll just disable to feature i put in.
No it didnt. I'll speak to DR, Matt and Matt about it.
Currently known and intended. Will look into it.
Made changes to the way images are resized and it should work unless you have some really weird or stupid image. Message me or comment here if you find an example of it not working properly
Just to report that the RSS feed images, which used to work, now only display a bit-tech graphic instead.
which RSS? can you link me.
On the main site. http://bit-tech.net/rss/
Hmm, it may be a change in my app as re-adding the bit-tech.net feed has got an image to load on one of the articles (it hasn't affected any of my other feeds but it just might be bad luck on that count )
So i can mark this as fixed?
'fraid not (don't hate me): the same issue occurs with Twitter previews. Instead of the article image, you get an all-the-JPEG cut-off jacked-up version of the bit-tech logo.
Is that linking the website or the thread on the forums?
EDIT: just worked out it's for the website. See this is tricky as it works perfectly on FB then when i change it so it works good on twitter it breaks on facebook. proper bamboozled
Article images don't work properly on facebook either tbh, fb scrapes the bit-tech logo rather than the main article image like it should do
I just add them manually.
Good guy dave. . I'll work on this again
