We just upgraded and now our users are noticing that they have to scroll just to read the photo descriptions. It seems the user's data in the left column is bigger. How can we change that so that the average user won't have to scroll left-to-right just to view?

Also, is there a way that users can upload avatars if we do not have photopost integrated with vb?

Thanks for your help!

I dont see any scrolling issue with a normal Photopost so you need to post links to show us what your issue.

A standalone Photopost does not have avatars only certain forum integrations

Oh sorry. Here are some examples. It's only when we're viewing a photo close up. No problem when it's just thumbnails. And it's not all photos but it is a lot of them.

I see a slight scrollbar. Your electing to show the next/prev thumbs on showphoto and your thumbnails are like huge so thats your issue. Try setting the next/prev bar in show photo options in admin to say left or right not top.

The big thumbnails are a big draw to our site so we'd like to keep those. We changed the next/prev to the left and now there is a large space between the layout and the comments. Is there a way to reduce the number of thumbnails that appear on the left?

Also, when a user does a search, it used to show the photos in a gallery style. Now the search comes up in one column with a description to the right. I checked search options and can't see a way to change this. Is there a way for us to change it back so that search results show up as just the photo thumbnails in a gallery type setting?

1. Maybe in showphoto.php find this code but this is a code modification so you are on your own if it doesnt work.


while ( $thisrec = mysql_fetch_row($rows) )
{
if ( is_image_private($thisrec[2]) == "no" )
{
if ( $thisrec[0] == $photo )
{
for( $x = count($stripimgs); $x < 3; $x++ )
{
array_unshift( $stripimgs, null );
}
$stripimgs[] = $thisrec;

// Grab two more (if there)
$exc = 0;
while ( $nextrec = mysql_fetch_row($rows) )
{
if ( is_image_private($nextrec[2]) == "no" )
{
$stripimgs[] = $nextrec;
$exc++;

if ( $exc == 3 )
{
break;
}
}
}
break;
}
else
{
$stripimgs[] = $thisrec;

if ( count($stripimgs) == 4 )
{
array_shift($stripimgs);
}
}
}
}



replace with maybe this


while ( $thisrec = mysql_fetch_row($rows) )
{
if ( is_image_private($thisrec[2]) == "no" )
{
if ( $thisrec[0] == $photo )
{
for( $x = count($stripimgs); $x < 3; $x++ )
{
array_unshift( $stripimgs, null );
}
$stripimgs[] = $thisrec;
break;
}
else
{
$stripimgs[] = $thisrec;

if ( count($stripimgs) == 2 )
{
array_shift($stripimgs);
}
}
}
}

2. No the search function in 5.62 performs as it does as it is more efficient and for performance. There is no switch to turn back to an old way
