Externally linked images

Post by Tarmaque » Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:34 pm

Would it be possible to change the externally linked image size to 1020x1020 pixels? I keep bumping up against the limit.

I also know there's a way (don't ask me how) to have the site resize them automatically down to something reasonable.

Again, no hurry. Just a thought.

I can take a look, but I don't remember seeing a setting for that. It's possible I overlooked it, there are a lot of options in there.

I just tried to link an image that was more than 750 pixels tall. Never had a problem at the other site. It's no big deal of course, but I thought it was strange.

So it's not a size thing then. I'll take a look

I've been playing around with this. The only time I run into this is when it's not a direct link to an image. What is the link you are using? Does it end in .gif, .jpeg or .png?

Any external image that is more than 750 pixels tall or wide is rejected. Most have been .jpeg images, but I've also seen it on .gif images and .png images.

For instance this image works:

But this image does not:

Fixed. We will have to see if this causes other issues though with people over over sizing their posts.

OMG totally off-topic but this so hit a chord with me - I started stressing over a job not done well last night, but thank goodness didn't react then. This morning, it's not all better but at least I can deal with it as an adult :-O
Thanxs Tarmaque

Oh, so *that's* why sometimes the image shows & other times the link shows.

Understanding is good.
