Uploads from Classdroid are too big in wordpress

Wednesday 8th September | 1 comment

Image uploads sent from Classdroid are too large for the wordpress blog to display and it messes up formatting.

Cause:

Classdroid uploads the best quality picture possible.  It is up to wordpress to ensure it doesn’t display it “too big”.

Information:

There is a bug in the max width settings in wordpress that is stopping custom images uploaded by classdroid to be displayed with the max-width variable.  You can set these settings under Admin -> Settings -> Media and set your maximums to something around the 500 mark.

Fix:

a) Go into each post and manually resize each classdroid upload.

OR

b)  Use a theme that doesn’t allow objects to spill over from one div to another

OR

c) Modify your themes style.css adding:
[html]overflow:hidden;[/html]
to the .post{ section

OR

d) Modify the settings on your android device to take the pictures at a smaller resolution. This will avoid large files being uploaded. To do this press the menu button when you have your camera application open, click settings and then adjust the resolution.
