Title: Picture display possibility - feedback sought please
Post by: VladTepes on Tuesday, 31 January 2017, 04:37 PM
The admin of another motorcycle forum (of which I am a mod) has graciously granted us a temporary login so that we can see the picture management on posts in a couple of areas of that forum.

I'd appreciate if people could have a look at the following forum, view a few posts where people have attached photos and provide me with some feedback as to whether they'd prefer that approach to be in place on this forum.

Essentially attachments are shown as thumbnails below the posts, they can be clicked on to view larger and then viewed in a  slide-show format  (forward and back arrows to flick through them)

I also would like people to do this from mobile devices, as well as their desktops, to let me know how / if it works for them.

Thanks

Also, a mobile theme is active on the forum, you might need to go to the bottom of the page and click on the 'Go to the full site' link to view the photos using FancyBox. (the attachment software in question)

looks good
got in from my samsung S5
didnt see many posts as wasnt totally sure what i was looking for.
anyway the ones i did that have pics looked good as pics were easy to see at the size shown in the post and could be clicked on to see them bigger .
is this what i was supposed to be checking and if so would be great for here as pics in posts can be to big here to see the whole thing .

hope that makes sence.

Ok... got in...I really must pay more attention to instructions :lol:

Looked at the gallery and also some pics in post.  Both looked good. Thumbprints in post looked fine when double clicked... perfectly viewable on iPad.

Thank you.  Keep it coming.

At this time I have no intentions to change the gallery- its working pretty fine.. it's the attachments that appear to be causing issues especially for mobile device users.

Updated original post with threads to point you in the right direction. Please re-read the latter half of that post for the new information.  Cheers

Hi had a look around on my iPad and my iPhone this worked ok on both as you said ref the phone I had to go to the bottom of the page but other than that it was all good
Got to say there back ground pic of the pistons was a nice little touch

Ive just logged in from my laptop okay

Im not a fan of the thumbnails if im to be honest  -but I can see there use if someone posts a lot of photos then takes a but of scrolling to get past them - so the thumbnails make this easier

If the thumbnails could be made larger then would work well for my tuppence worth

OK so seems opinions are mixed.

I am looking at another option too, which I will trial in the next few days.

Will have to trial it 'live' though so you may notice a change it appearance of photos - in that they might resize... time will tell.  As always, when I do anything I'll make an announcement post so everyone knows what's going on and doesn't freak out.

Communication eh... can't beat it ;)  :lol:
