There have also been some changes/fixes to the way that images are handled on the boards.
Previously, when someone embedded a big image file, it would 'break the board' in many web browsers/operating systems and cover up whatever was on the right side of the screen. With the PHPBB 3.0.10 update, that was fixed - now the image will be cropped and won't cover up the mini-profiles. Hooray, now I don't need to mess around with adding an image resizer plugin.
Attached images were still a problem. If somebody attached/uploaded an image and then clicked the little 'place inline' button to embed it into their message, the picture would get cropped and the board would be fine in every browser, operating system, and device. But if the person uploading the image didn't
place it inline (and most people don't), then we'd still end up with big images messing things up on the right side of the screen for a lot of users. As a solution, I made some changes to the board's settings. When you upload an attached image, the board will automatically make a thumbnail of up to 600 pixels wide. That size seems to be a sweet spot for ePlaya's layout - it works on anything ranging from most smartphones and tablets to netbooks and their smaller screen sizes, but it's still big enough to look respectable on machines with bigger screens. And it keeps your full-size image - when you click on an attached image, it opens the image up at the original resolution it was uploaded. Take a look at the attached image below for an example.
