Just my thoughts....
PITA
Published on July 30, 2012 By RedneckDude In Forum Issues

Hey guys, once again I am getting the thing where when I post a reply, I get taken to the bottom of the page and have to scroll up through a sometimes vast amount of dead grey area to get to the bottom post.

 

 

Just sayin'......

Do the threads in question by chance have enormous images in them?

yep

 

Or is it happening on any thread?

Now you mention it... It mostly happens in threads with images/screenshots.

Snowman blames the shitty/slow photobucket/imageshack

But it occationally happens in other threads too.

And its sporadic. Doesn't happen all the time.

As a for instance, I just checked vStyler's Agenda thread, and it has lots of gray space at the bottom.  He has a large image in the OP.

Even my Omen - WIP thread has gray space, but not as much as the Agenda thread as the image in the OP is less tall.

I'm just glad it's not fifty shades of grey. 

Dunno, but I read somewhere they're pretty dirty.

Sure, grey can be dull and uninteresting, but when people say them fifty shades are downright filthy I just don't get it.

Hmmmm, maybe if I put my glasses on I'd see what all the fuss is about.

If you see it in a thread with no images that's news, but yeah, the reason you see that in threads that do have images is because some browsers (Firefox at least) don't recalculate the page length after the images get shrunk by javascript. The length of the grey area will correspond to the total original height of any shrunken images.

That makes sense. Thanks, kryo.

No way to add some code to do things differently if the site detects that the browser accessing the site is Firefox kyro?

 FF isn't the only browser with the issue, It does the same with IE.

I never even noticed that before Wiz, but you are definitely right.  I just checked some pages with images and the problem occurs in IE9 also.

There are more than 50 shades of grey... if you include those the navy uses on its ships.

And some of those are now 'dead spaces'.... sunk to create artificial reefs.
