It'd look more professional if the images weren't always "squashed" to fit in the post. Whenever I see an image in those News posts I cringe due to the weird resizing.

Additionally, the News Feed shouldn't extend past the Activity Feed. You get this large transparent empty space and it looks silly.



I've noticed these things ever since the new front page layout came out, but I figured they'd be fixed in time.

Thank you for your feedback. The problem is, I format the images for how they appear when you are looking at the actual news post as opposed to the how they show when 'front paged'. I will keep this in mind moving forward. I have reformatted the image dimensions since your post. Let me know how it shows up now.

Looks great, virago. Would it be possible to alter the way the front page compresses images? That would allow you to post whatever images you like without having to resort to fixing the images individually ^^

Fixed in repo, will go up with next update :)

The issue was in how bbcode was handling width and height. I've modified it now so that if you put in a custom width/height and either is over our maximum threshold, it will just axe your settings and rely on max-width instead, properly retaining scale.

The problem with the example image was that the width was over the threshold but the height wasn't, and it was only axing the width. Then the max-width kicked in, but the height was still defined, which meant the image was no longer being kept to scale - it was using mismatched width and height.

Good fix ^^ And what are you guys thinking of doing about the large blankish space? Limiting the amount of news feed boxes until they aligned with the activity feed would work?

Or is something new going to go in that area?

Late response but, we're not doing anything with it. We like the amount of news items that are there and don't want to decrease it, and if we add that many items to the discussion list it will look silly and it's not really any benefit. The length of each news item is also unpredictable so they will never line up regardless. We don't want to put anything else in there as it will not get seen by many people and will just slow down the home page. So it stays as is :)
