Hi there,

Is there any way to make images in answers auto-resized to fit with the default width of content.

Recently, I've found that when a member inserts large-size pictures in his post, those overlapped and hid the side-panel's contents:


Therefore, I would like to know if there is way to make such images auto fitted.

Best regards.

use css styles:

.entry-content img { max-width: 600px; border:1px solid #AAAAAA; }

The border is defined here, in case you link the images (gives thick blue border in IE).

You'd be better of with timthumb instead of using css. What if someone enters a gigantic image that's like 10 mb or so? It sure will be 'resized' by css, but it still will take a long time before the image is shown...
you could just limit the size of image uploads to <1mb

I'm doing this on my site using jQuery on page load and some preprocessing on the backend when the content is posted. I am creating both a thumbnail and a local copy of the image. The thumbs are used by the image slider at the top of each category.

You can just do the resize with pure jQuery. Just use $.css() or $.attr(). The problem is getting the images original dimensions. 

Here is an example post with a resized image from a few minutes ago.
