Yeah, I meant, if there's already code to get avatars to resize, how hard could it be to get other images to resize...(of course, it could be hard, i dunno)

Oh :p

it would have to be more than just resizing... because i hate the desktop thread when people dont use a thumbnail and just resize the image __

Making actual thumbnails would be difficult... the board would have to scan every new post for images, then download those images to the server and check their sizes. If an image is too big, a thumbnail would have to be created and cached, then the post would have to be modified to use the new thumbnail. Do any boards do that? :-/

I did write (well, steal and rewrite) some Javascript to scale down large images on the client-side, but it was kinda buggy so I didn't use it. :tongue:

its either you make the server do that or ban people who dont post thumbnails!
