User Forum » Implementing custom image gallery - Wikipedia example

Hi team,

We noticed that attached images have their details blurred. So in case we want to add a picture of something, we might get a good rendering of it and understand what's on the picture. Nevertheless, if we attach a slide of a presentation, the text in it gets blurred and unreadable. Is it possible to add a custom gallery, alike Wikipedia one? Or maybe you have any other tips for better rendering of pictures?

Thanks,
Kevin

The scaling down of attached images is deliberate, in order not to mess up the page layout in case of large images.

What would be good to have happen is that clicking on an image opens it in full size in a new tab. That would make the text easy to read - would that help you?

I think that solution could be handy in case we had one / two images inside the same topic. Nevertheless, when we have more, it is not comfortable to switch between pages.

I was thinking about maybe an image preview when we hover over the miniature of the image. Would JForum support this kind of functionality?

You mean something like http://cssdemos.tupence.co.uk/image-popup.htm? That might make for a useful addition.

Yes, that would look neat! So I understand it is feasible with JForum?

It's software - just about everything is feasible smilie

What I meant is I can add that to the codebase. I'll probably get around to it soon, likely by next week.
