Thanks for reporting this. I am looking at the problem but can't see what exactly the cause is for the fact that the images aren't showing at their maximum resolution.

If I right-click on the image and open it in a new window, it is very large:
https://sp-images.summitpost.org/103075 ... 1095ff2cb5

So there must be some sort of CSS limitation with the wrapping div that is preventing the image from going to max resolution. Ah yes...I see the issue now...it is with img max-width: 100% and the outer div being set at 770px width, so the image is limited to that width as well.

Hmm, I can't think of a way to fix that off the top of my head. A change was made to the CSS so that all images are responsive now, which is very important for proper responsive display of pages on all devices and to achieve that it required setting max-width: 100%.

Let me do some Googling to see if I can find a solution for displaying "responsive" panorama images. I am assuming instead of the image being shrunk to fit the width of the screen, the behavior you'd like to see is that there is a scroll bar across the bottom as it behaved in the past?


Livioz has realized that if you exchange the code of the picture as it used to be
Code: Select all
https://www.summitpost.org/images/original/1030757.jpg


with the code of the high resolution picture

Code: Select all
https://sp-images.summitpost.org/1030757.jpg?auto=format&fit=max&h=800&ixlib=php-2.1.1&q=35&s=6663b394665603b8b725e71095ff2cb5


everything remains as it used to be. Now the obvious question is whether it would be possible to automate such an exchange...

On the other hand I fully understand that nowadays you'd want responsive design. Back when we "invented" these sliding panoramas nobody thought of displaying SP on a mobile device and we invented rules like the 770 px rule, assuming the best resolution to view these panos was on a screen of 1024 pixels width.

The times they are a changin' - as Bob used to say ...

I have found it impossible to arrange photos anymore:

Why are the photos all over the place?

It looks like the HTML for the photos was either generated with an older version of the editor or copied and pasted from somewhere else. It didn't appear to be the HTML generated by the new editor.

I went in and edited the HTML to make it conformant with the new CSS definitions. All images are now aligned middle, which is the default behavior and looks the best on all devices regardless of the width of the screen.

Weird.

I cut and pasted the text from somewhere else, but added the photos directly from SP using the new editor.

Yes. Deleting the cookies should fix it.

Something is seriously wrong with the page below, but I can't fix it. The text block width is too narrow.

Also spacing between paragraphs and links keeps disappearing every time I edit:

In addition I have to log in and out every time I want to post in the forum.

OK, should be fixed now. Let me know if it is how you intended it to look. If not, I'd be happy to fix it however you want.

Just to let you know what looked to be the problem -- it appears that somehow the image wrapper containers were split apart from the image. When this happens, the editor tries to "auto fix" the issue but when it did so in this case, it grabbed a bunch of the text and put it in the image container that had a specified width of 500px. That is why the page looked so narrow.

Can you delete all of your cookies related to SummitPost.org and try it again? There was a serious problem with the login system that I just discovered this afternoon. It is amazing that it was working at all.
