Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Hello there

Where can i set a maximal imagesize (width & height) of signatures for Kunena users?

I use Kunena 1.5.9 with the Default_Ex template.

Thx for the responses!


Best greetings

K 1.5.9 is very old. I have a feeling that this particular matter may have been addressed by one of the later upgrades. Can you try to upgrade to K 1.5.12 and see if upgrading actually fixes the problem? If it doesn't then, by all means, please write back to us and we'll see what we can do.

I am aware that some of these signature image issues have been discussed before and a search of this website may also give you some tips.

Hello

Thank you for your feedback. I think you don't unterstand my problem. I search for the file, who defines the max. imagesize of the signature.

My memory isn't a good as it used to be, I'm sorry to say. I vaguely remember that this has been discussed on several occasions in the past but I don't remember where or when. I could spend my time searching this for you or you could spend your time searching this for yourself. In the end it's only someone's time. I also have a vague recollection that in K 1.5.10, or K 1.5.11 or K 1.5.12 (I don't remember which) there were changes made to the default_ex template CSS that had an impact on "excessively large" images that tended to break users' website layouts. I could have been wrong.

As my poor memory tells me, there is no specific "setting" as such that allows you to globally set a maximum size limit on the images that people put into their signatures. I do, however, recall seeing something in these forums that showed users how they could allow for some unexpectedly "large" images that users wanted to insert in their own cases. Perhaps someone else (whose memory or skill is better than mine) may be able to assist you better.

Thanks sozzled. Firebug shows me the following code:
<div class="msgsignature">
<div style="table-layout: fixed; display: table; width: 100%;">
<a rel="lightbox" href="https://img682.imageshack.us/img682/3946/sigra.png">
<img width="400" alt="" style="max-width: 400px;" src="https://img682.imageshack.us/img682/3946/sigra.png"/>
</a>
</div>

Its a element.style, but I can not figure out which file in this style is defined.

Its in css of your template: \components\com_kunena\template\infinityhu16\css\kunena.forum-min.css

search this:

#Kunena div.kmsgsignature img {
max-width:100%;
max-height: 150px;

Hi all.

I need to know how to alter the height and width of the signature box on the Kunena forum software using the The Black Dragon template. As atm. Our clan/fleet uses a signature size of 750*200 pixels and the forum is showing them small and compressed which due to text in them is unusable in the current situation so i need to increase the max spaces for signature sizes allowed and displayed from whatever they are now to at least show a full non altered version of the signature images for our members.

Had a look at the css file but i can only find.

td.msgsignature {
width: 100%;
}
td.msgsignature div {
text-align: left;
overflow: hidden;
color:#999;
font-size:small;
padding: 5px 5px;

That isnt in the template im using "black dragon". Sry hijackin the thread but no ones posting in my thread and this is basically same thing id like to know how to do. As the images ppl use in their profiles for signatures are comparessed to max width of 400 ish when the sigs our clan/fleet uses are 750. Which ok kinda large i guess we can shrink em to 650-700 to fit the narrow theme of black dragon but how to edit that and i have looked through all the css and php files in the template and no go. That code posted above just forces quick reply in everyones post so we need some ppl to reply to how to not have limits on our signature images ppl use when using our forums.

SkeeterUK. Images as large as 750 x 200 px are going to cause problems, no matter whichever way you look at it. For example, some people are only able to run a screen resolution of 800 x 600 px on their computer monitors!

Although I don't know anything about this "black dragon" template, who designed it or who developed it, and I haven't seen your website, I am assuming that the template is not wide enough to handle images of 750 px x 800 px in an area that's less than 750 px wide. Even if you could enlarge the width of the Kunena template to utilise 100% of whatever has been defined for your component display, it's unlikely that you will be able to fit images as large as you're suggesting without some resizing and, therefore, loss of resolution.

Either you need a wider Joomla template or you need to modify your expectations about using large banner-sized images in your member's signatures. The maximum image size that people can use is defined by the maximum width of the td.msgsignature class. This is, in turn, limited by the maximum width of the table that contains this td. These limits are further dependent on your Joomla template.

Using Firebug you can determine the actual widths (in pixels) and you may be able to make some adjustments.

Hi there.

It is a clan/fleet site and forum and we had them this size on our previous forums so dont know why we should change just as we use this forum software now. So as they took alot of time to design and craft we will keep them that size. The template will need to be changed to accomodate them. This is what i need help with.

As post 5 clearly stated with firebug some element style is limiting it to 400px wide.

<div class="msgsignature">
<div style="table-layout: fixed; display: table; width: 100%;">
<a rel="lightbox" href=" img682.imageshack.us/img682/3946/sigra.png ">
<img width="400" alt="" style="max-width: 400px;" src=" img682.imageshack.us/img682/3946/sigra.png"/ >
</a>
</div>


I have looked for the code to change it but it escapes me.

So basically i need someone who knows templates, how to adjust the code that is cropping signature images and to disable this code. I dont care if it breaks the forum we will deal with this. Just need help coding to disable the code that is basically "if img is x then crop to Y". Please help.

Our site/forum showing the signature images to be shrunk to unreadable quality i.e what we want fixing.

www.therisenphoenixfleet.com/index.php/f...n/166-hello.html#176

The template was made here.

www.kenlapz.org/download?task=view.download&cid=114

Now if it was me id change to a different wider template but im only an Administrator i dont make them decisions someone else does i just help run the site and fix things hence why im here.

Edit- I switched template to either default or defaultex and sig sizes were still that way so its not just this black dragon template it seems.
