Flexible Page Width (6 posts)

    Hello.
    I have opened up a new page in my blog,
    and on this page I would like to put some quite big
    pictures (about 960 pixles in width).
    The problem is, when I put the picture, it just
    destryes the whole page...
    So I had to minizime it, and link it to the original picture. But I want the picture to be a part of my blog, so readers won't have to be redirected to another site.
    What I want to know is if there's anyway that the page will extended itself accroding to the width of the picture?
    So if I put this big picture, the page will, let's say "enlarge" itself to the right width, so that the picture won't mess it up.

    It depends on a number of factors, one being your theme itself.

    However, why don't you just resize the image so that it fits inside your theme, and then re-upload it? You shouldn't be hotlinking, if that's what you're doing. You should host the image yourself - in which case you can make it whatever size you want, or you can use thumbnails to have people click the image, but it would be the image on YOUR server - not the other site.

    Try some of the "fluid width" themes on here:

    The theme i'm using is ChaoticSoul v1.0.1
    And I had to minimize the picture and link it to another site because it is a comics, and if it's not in it's original size - you can't read it.
    I've also checked one of those fluid-width themes...
    That didn't work either...
    edit:
    oh, and I can't really host it on my own server because there's a 500KB size limit (free hosting :P), and the picture is about 1MB :X

    In that case probably just write a post describing the cartoon and make a normal text link sending people off to view the comic on the original site.

    Why didn't a Fluid width theme wouldn't accomodate your need? assuming the browser and screen width is wider than the graphic you're trying to put in, I would think it would work

    Do what I did, which is RESIZE the widths in the template. It's still a work in progress but it's coming along well!
