Photo size problem

  muddypaws 10:28 13 Apr 2006

For 12 mths I have been running a Picasa blog with no probs. Yesterday I set up a stats counter on it with by pasting the edit code into 'templates'. Since then any photos added to the blog when clicked on downsize to a thumbnail instead of enlarging. All previous photos behave normally. I have removed the edit, but problem persists. Suggestions/help please. Thank. muddypaws.

Can you post a link, we might spot something in the code.

PurplePenny. I realise what you say, but it is a family blog that I don't normally give out. Family photos etc. Apologies. muddypaws.

Without seeing the code it's impossible to advise. The best guess is that something got overwritten when you pasted in the counter code and removing the code hasn't put it back. If you have a previous copy of the code then upload that. It's always a good idea to copy a page before making changes to it for just this sort of eventuality.

JWJ. I have created a new blog as a test with one photo on it. It has the same problem. The link;

And this is a link to the template/edit code.
If that is what is needed. If the bravenet code I inserted is needed I will try and locate it.

Link to the bravenet code I pasted into templates/edit. Trouble is I haven't got a copy of the original template code before the edit. <!-- Start Service Code -->
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="click here">

Not quite sure why the 'click here' is in the middle of the code!

PCA automatically translates a URL into 'click here' ,sometimes even when you don't want it to!

Muddypaws, I can't explain how it has happened but I think your picture folders have been reversed in your code. Look at this part of your code ...

<a href='click here'><img border='0' class='phostImg' src='click here'></a>

the online folder hello/287/6998/50/ contains your small thumbs and the folder hello/287/320/ contains the larger pics. Each has a version of image 100_16392.jpg in it. A 50 pixel version and a 320 pixel version. The code beginning href= identifies the image to be displayed when you click, and the part beginning src= identifies the image to be shown before the click. As you will see, this clearly shows that the larger 320 image will be shown first and the smaller 50 px image after clicking.

As I say, I can't explain how these got reversed but they need swapping around. Just edit the code to swap the '50' and '320' in the folder path and see if that fixes the problem.

JWJ. You have all but lost me there! Never dabbled with things like that! Trying to recall where I got the code from for the moment!. If I manage to change it will that possibly cure the problem throughout? Incidentally after my last post I logged into my old blog and the picture that was minimising-- enlarged as normal! Thinking it had cured itself I added another image-- then they both minimised! Removed the second and the first was OK! Think I will leave any editing till to-morrow. Again many thanks for your time and will return to-morrow. If I don't crash the PC!
