A number of my family members and some college buddies want to close out their accounts with laxpower.I want to instruct them on how THEY can do this.Thank you.

So, i've seen some pictures posted that run off the page to the right, but that have a "slide bar" that allows you to pan the picture to the left to see it the hidden portion of the picture...

Is there some manual process to accomplish this? It seems that the upward limit of pixel size needed to get a whole picture into the standard LP Forum frame is about 480x480 or so, up to maybe 600x600-ish.

How to get that "slider bar" in there for a picture that spills out of the standard frame...

Anyone?

Top image is a direct link to an image hosted somewhere else and bottom image is same one though done as an uploaded attachment.

Before posting I know the top one will be cut pretty dramatically to not "break" the message div but we'll see on the attachment one. I run a pretty busy forum using the same phpBB forum software and there's multiple ways to set up to display images.

[edit]...hm, that was a bit unexpected on how they have the attachment view. breaks way out horizontally. Is that what you are talking about dislaxxic?[/edit]

yes! That is what i was wondering about. I'll have to experiment...so you're saying that simply uploading a file (image or otherwise) will get it to display in it's entirety, apparently telescoping out to screen right to do that...i wonder what, if any, limitations come with this technique. :think:

Also, if any of the Board Mods would care to chime in...does uploading a larger image or file have any kind of deleterious or negative effect on the board generally...using up storage space or effecting performance in any way?

Thanks, Zenpig...that's what i was looking for. Sometimes you can only find one size of a given image...and i've been unable (til now) to find a way to get them posted... :mrgreen:

There is a size limitation on what you can upload, 256Kb if I remember right, to prevent their server from filling up with large image files. There's some pretty cool modifications to the message board which would display the images full size when linked to from somewhere else but don't know if they are unaware of them or there is some technical reason they are not being used.

How do I... complain to the ACTIVE folks?

Is there a thread around here somewhere to talk about ways to increase traffic to the LaxPower website??
