Looks like the forum image resizer broke yet again.
... And my signature too, what a joy!
Looking into it.
Ok after looking into the problem (as you didn't explain what the problem was, just that it was broken
It wasn't broken after all
What was happening was some photos open ok others opened in a new tab (or window) as well as normal, this is because the photos you thought were broken are not posted on this forum but links to images on other forums/sites and any links to other forums/sites will automatically open in a new tab or window so in this case, the photo was opening correctly on the forum and because it was linking off site it was also opening in a new tab.
I know you are going to say this is not ideal but you should not be linking to photos on other sites especially ones that are not designed for linking to photos.
this is called Hot Linking
and in some cases can slow the other site down if lots of people link to the same photo. (I know people from other sites link to photos on TDUDT and it sometimes affects the load times on here.
Also another downside to linking to photos on other sites is if that site goes down or the photo is removed you will just see a blank where the broken link is.
I know it is a little more hassle but uploading photos as attachments guarantees they will always be available on the forum as they are stored on the same server as TDUDT.
Ok enough rambling from me
I really liked the new photo viewer it had some cool features but i can hear the moaning coming
so (for now) i have reverted back to a newer version of the old viewer.
PS. i am aware of the other problem with post icons not showing as read after a post has been read by the user (see photo below) it is been worked on.
