[BUG] Problems with integrating and displaying images in discussions - distorted pictures.

G Giuseppe Public Seen by 35

What I did:

When I try to include images in the context of my thread or poll - since I am not able to variate the size of the picture in the thread, I used a table to reduce the size and to show small pictures of different options to choose.

I used Chrome for that.

What I intended:

Showing different pictures of options to choose from group members in a poll.

Like it is shown in the edit mode:

What I got:

Inserting images into the discussion results in distorted images

Any ideas why this happens?

I think this is an important feature to include images in a easy way and to adapt sizes of images.

OK. I'll see what's going on.

Oh wow. Sorry about this problem. @Giuseppe

I really like your approach of using tables to achieve layouts that otherwise would be too hard. Nice!

I'm deploying a fix now. In about 15 minutes from this comment you should be able to reload and find the images are the correct proportions.

Hello @Rob Guthrie , thanks for your reply! 🙂

I did a pull this night and tested the behaviour right now.
It behaves the same way on my computer. Did you already made the fix?

Thanks for support. Have a good day!

Oh, should have mentioned. You will need to use the "latest" branch in your docker-compose file. Edit your .env file and replace stable with latest.

Confusingly, I think there is a env and a .env, so just be aware of that.

You'll also need to run the migrations (detailed in the readme) things have been moving quickly recently.

Oh yes! Thanks for the hint. I did not know that. I tested it, made apull and everything works as aspected now! Thank you :) 🙌
