I posted this over at Taz first here https://theadminzone.com/threa…ssue.143064/#post-1080988
In a nut shell i cant get images to display correctly, the following is an example of gallery image and how its cropped, then how it displays in dashboard.
So you pic an image and the crop box pops up, it crops it into a quadratic shape. However when you goto the dashboard this is how it displays the image.
Despite it being a square image once cropped, the dashboard makes a mess of the image. I have been told there are no plans to fix this until a major release! I am also told a non quadratic image cant be expected to display correctly, however it is quadratic by default because it has been cropped into a square!
The way articles handle images is in my opinion worse, you get no control over how they will display.
this is an example of a small 405 X 218px image for an article.
so you got into create article and choose a pic like so.
So having chosen the image it does this to it (keep in mind you have no control over cropping for this).
Its cut the front and back off!
So when you goto the dashboard the picture looks like this.
Very unprofessional looking. What is still worse is if you go to the actual article you have created, keeping in mind the main header image is what attracts people.
I dont see how this can possibly wait for the next major release, we are looking for an initial 7 licenses..Both the Article and gallery are top priority for us, we are due to launch at the end of Jan, I need to know if this is fixable and if so when? having spent so much time evaluating Woltlab. and being impressed right upto this point. I have no time left to evaluate and recommend another software, however we would not be able to use this as it stands.
Anyone got a cludge we could use to get around how the image is displayed?
Surely it cant be hard to let the user choose which bit of the image is shown in the article?
