Site annoyances and bugs

Recommended Posts

I have a few small issues with the forum which I think can easily be fixed:

On wide-screen the column for main content is just way too wide making it hard to read sentences 

Twitter embedding is broken and just display a cloudflare error 

When linking to an image which was previously posted but got updated without changing the name/url, the correct image is shown as preview in the compose box but changes to an old version after posting

Hi ArHu, thanks for posting this. 

Regarding number 1 - can I ask which skin you are using, is it the default or netweather simple?

The twitter embeds should be fixed now. The old images being are related to browser and cdn caching, I'm actually considering switching off the functionality to link to remote images due to this (and the fact that many aren't able to be loaded through https). I'd recommend that instead of linking to images, you download them to your pc and upload them into your post, then they'll always show correctly.

It's now too narrow and where do you change the skin.

It's a max 1400px, which for the majority of screens is pretty optimal. The skin changer is at the bottom of the page.

I've switched the forum back to it's standard fluid width setup. For those who want a fixed max width, I've made a new theme imaginatively titled: Netweather (fixed max width), which you can select from the bottom of the page. 

Re Extra, it's coming, no eta currently, but a new version is definitely in the pipeline.

Thanks for change. Much better and easier to read. Much better than having a little squashed up bit in the middle of screen which is basically a waste of space when you have a 4k screen. Didn't work very well on laptops either.
