Proposed BBCode: Loading larger images inline upon user request

Posted by >_< on Apr 06 2013 - 03:09 PM

As we all know, when an image is larger than 500 kB in size, it should be linked to instead of embedded, to prevent the pageload from slowing down too much. However, that way the images have to be loaded in a new window, which isn't really preferable, though the gain in loading speed is most certainly worth it.
That was, until jQuery came along. One of the most useful JavaScript frameworks in existence, and already used on BZP by default - you don't even have to load another library.

Due to it's excessive length the full explanation of the techniques used for this suggestion have been posted in this blog entry. I'd recommend you read (at least the most important parts of) that before continuing here.

So, now that you've (hopefully) found out how and why it works, and read the reasoning behind this suggestion that I'm just too lazy to copypaste right now, you can read on to continue finding out about..... nothing. Yep, it'd appear that this is the end of this suggestion here. How curious indeed.
Oh, except for the fact that [eximg] would be a good tag to use for this. It can stand for 'External Image', 'Excessive(ly Large) Image', 'Extravagant Image', or whatever you like.

So I don't it understand it that fully, so in normal human langue this just means: Way of lozding big images in a page only when clicked on/certain setting is enabled?

I see a problem: often forum space isn't big enough to display a huge image, and you're better off just opening it in a new page anyway.

Well, of course it's still limited by the width of the containing post. It'd be possible to add a vertical scrollbar in case the content exceeds the boundaries, but that'd have to be applied to the post's container itself.
