Just a little consideration for those with low bandwith.

My broadband connection is 256kb d/l. Sucks for me, but it must really suck for dialup users accessing any site that uses full size images in posts.

I would appreciate thumbnails instead of hires screenshots in posts.
As shown here, a thumbnail is accompanied by a link to the hires image.

@ubcd4win forum (invision) - it is possible to embed a link to the hires image within the thumbnail, so if you click on the thumbnail image you can see the hires image.

example post using photobucket: (image shack is similar, but slightly different)
http://www.ubcd4win....=...ost&p=31881

thumbnail example:

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y221/niw4dcbusegami/nado/th_Tornadoandrainbow.jpg
note: notice the "th_ " prepended to the filename

full image example:

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y221/niw4dcbusegami/nado/Tornadoandrainbow.jpg
:P

pseudocode:
[url={link}][img]{link with th_}[/img][/url]

Cool! Looks like it works here.

I have to agree with this Idea.

Likewise - good suggestion, I'll see if there is a way of adding it internally to the forum, I was a dial-up user for quite a long time, so I know how that feels.. :P

yay for thumbnails :P

an other thing: is it possible to get another theme? this one is REALLY slow to load (and i get stable 112 KiB throughput on the downlink). way too many images perhaps?

may be a dreamhost issue though..

Thumbnails are not so easy to achieve at this moment, however it is quite possible that someone has already developed this feature - I'll around soon..

Yes it is possible to use other themes, at the moment there are 7 selectable themes, perhaps the default invision theme can load faster..

I wouldn't really tell if it's a dreamhost issue, everything seems to be working fine..


Glad to see you around here too.. :P
