Is there anyway to make pictures appear bigger than a postage stamp in threads without having to click each one? Hoping there's an easy setting i've missed?

sadly when the forum software upgraded for some reason the new thumb nail size for existing Photos was set to 100x100 pixels wide and across

and it was never adjusted sadly 

I imagine there may be a way to redo the thumb nails to a larger size hopefully! but it will be on the admin side of things

cc the techy mods @Slartibartfast (and @Stanky ?)

 

if your talking about photos in a post of your own, then if you click on the photo then click on it again so it opens in a new tab if you then copy the URL and paste it back into the edit box then it will embed large :)

Generally very pleased with the updated site.
No real problems found, though I do always use it on a laptop, not a mobile.
Just a couple of trivial suggestions:

The login option on the default Autoshite theme is white text on pale brown, which makes it very difficult to see. I use the alternative blue and white theme, which I find is much easier to read, but this doesn't happen until after I have logged in (understandably) so I still need to find the login option on the Autoshite-themed screen. Any chance of changing the colour of the login option to something which contrasts a bit more with the brown background?

My first port of call when I log in is nearly always "Content I have posted in", which I then repeatedly refresh affter I have read each post. This involves hovering over the "Activity" tab, then clicking on "My activity streams", then clicking again on "Content I have posted in", which is a bit tedious. I notice that an "Unread content" option appears on both the "Activity" toolbar and the top right corner of the page. Could a "Content I have posted in" link either be added to the "Activity" toolbar or replace the "Unread content" option on it?

Sorry if this seems like nit-picking, and I do appreciate all the effort you guys have put in to this new incarnation, but even small niggles can get tedious if you encounter them often enough.

Thanks for reading.

I also use the blue on white theme. And likewise I start off with the "content I have posted in".  So to save these preferences ; I logged in, set that theme, opened that "content I have posted in" page, and then bookmarked it.  Now, whenever I open that bookmark I'm prompted to log in ..which is just two clicks,  and I'm taken directly to that page with blue/white theme already in place.

^ The footnote at the bottom of each of my posts starts off with  ...  (three dots) which is underlined in blue because I have used those for a link to the webpage with the "content I have posted in".  It's a very convenient as just one-click takes me back to the top and directly to that page.  And very easy to set up.    However if I don't post a reply then I can of course just go up to my bookmarks drop-down menu and click on Autoshite, as that would take me there also, and as I'm already logged in - it would be almost as quick. No refresh nor hovering is needed

Hope that helps.

May thanks for the tips. I have set up the bookmark as you suggested and it works a treat.
Also like the idea of the 3 dots in the footnote, but not sure how to turn the 3-dot text into a web page link.

Open the page you want .. in this case your own "contents I have posted in" and copy the website page address < www.autoshite ....etc >  Then go into your profile > footnote, and select the three dots (or whatever text you happen to choose) and then select "Link" (it looks like a chain link in your reply, or edit, menu bar). That will open a sub window where you simply paste in your copied website page address. Save.. and it will automatically work.

Thanks again, works a treat.
is footnote the same as signature?
Couldn't find footnote under profile, but selected Account Settings > Signature and put it in there and it works fine.

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.

      Is anyone else into their kits? In new money, that’s scale models.
       
      Is anyone selling any? I have an unhealthy collection that I can’t particularly let the wife see.
