The way pictures are handled in posts...


I'd like you to take a look at is sizing of pictures.

Take a look at this thread: Is My Contractor Ripping Me Off???

The OP put a LARGE picture in as a post and the whole page scales to the width of the picture making the post difficult to read scrolling left and right. Could the be scaled or show a clickable thumbnail?

I like the quick reply box width change.

Thanks much...

I'll second the idea to limit picture width. What also widens the screen are long user names.

This is just annoying, but otherwise a great site and thanks to the folks who make it work.

If they attach the image to the site we have control over the image and resize it... but when they link to another site we can't control the size and we have to take what we are given.

Disable the img tag, forcing people to attach?
