I honestly have no idea how UTF-8 got disabled. I've been trying to fix it for a while, but nothing seems to work. It's been half a year since I last attempted anything, so maybe I can give it another go.

Is there a way you guys can implement an image scaler for this forum?

Other forums have a tendency to scale down images if they're too big for the page.



AR doesn't do that. If an image uploaded here is too large, we have to do the dreaded horizontal scrolling.

Is there something we can do about this?

I don't think so, unfortunately.

Normally, when am image is too large, I just reformat it myself and then upload it in a smaller size using Photobucket.It's kind of a pain to do, but it works.

Here's a suggestion for those who wish to try it. It's a simple bbcode image size tag.

Using this coding will reduce my sig image size to 200 pixels wide and still keep it proportional...


The image width number can be specified as any number you wish for any reduction..
Code: [Select]
[img width=200]http://i.imgur.com/5Ewmua4.png[/img]
Now let's make it clickable for full size!
<---Click for full size!

How is this done? As you'll see below, the original image size url has been wrapped around the reduced image coding which I showed above..
Code: [Select]
[url=http://i.imgur.com/5Ewmua4.png][img width=200]http://i.imgur.com/5Ewmua4.png[/img][/url]

It'd be nice if the forum could do that automatically for large images, but I think your suggestion could be helpful in the future.

Thanks, Lord Il. :thumbup:

Awesome discovery, Il! Maybe I'll see if I can find a way to work that into the UI somehow. :joy:

Glad to help!  :e_hail:

I know it's a bit of a pain as is, but perhaps a copy, paste and save of that coding example somewhere on everyones comps will help reduce some hassle for any image resizing you would like to do.

Mozilla announced on their blog that their Firefox browser will soon phase out access to non-secure HTTP websites. Any website that isn't HTTPS could be blocked. Pretty soon, AR could see a decrease in visits by Firefox users who are unaware of the upcoming change. Is there a way to encrypt the URL to this site?

I already switched to Chrome. FireFox kept on crashing on me and moving way too slow.
