Too wide images on planet.wordpress.org (13 posts)

  1. I wish someone could add a CSS on the planet.wordpress.org to prevent the large images (from the feed stream) to go over the whole screen, something like:

    .wrapper img{
        max-width: 100%;


    ps: I'm not sure where to report this ;-)

    Are you referring to the RSS feed?

  3. Hi, I'm referring to this page


    where huge images sometimes cover the whole right sidebar

    Are you referring to an RSS feed? I cannot see any obvious issues on that page.

    Esmi, I think you're not seeing an issue because your screen size is larger

    My default browser window is only around 1080px wide.

    yeah one of the images causes a horizontal scrollbar at small widths

  8. Here's one example:

    <img src="http://i1.wp.com/wptavern.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/empty-mailbox.jpg?resize=1020%2C550" alt="empty-mailbox" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-17567">

    WPTavern: How to Stop WordPress From Sending Emails

    on http://planet.wordpress.org/

  9. Now there's one image on the Planet page that's 1309 px wide ;-)

    <img src="http://wptavern.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/new-buttons.png"
    alt="new-buttons" width="1309" height="217" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-17733">

    @esmi, do these images scale down in your browser?

  10. I chuckled yesterday as the featured image in the Hexa post almost redesigned the Planet WordPress site single-handedly. What the Planet needs is a redesign from the ground up. Definitely need to limit image sizes. By default, it displays the full image size which is impractical.

    A redesign may well be on the ToDo list but bear in mind that it's a very long list with very limited resources.

  12. I know first hand that the Planet is at the bottom of the list in terms of priorities. Has been for a long time.

  13. Or perhaps show excerpts and not full posts...
