Description jonnymt 2008-03-25 14:07:55 UTC
A number of users are reporting issues with images displaying at a very large size (appears to be their default size) when the sizing is set using the "px" parameter.  There is currently a handful of discussions at the technical village pump [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)] indicating that the removal of the "px" parameter seems to be a workaround.  I've personally tested this on Firefox/WinXP and Camino/OS X 10.5, and others have reported the same problem on IE/WinXP.
Comment 1 Tim Starling 2008-03-25 14:26:30 UTC
The problem (in all test cases I've investigated so far) is images sized with pxpx, not px. This was recently changed so as not to work. See bug 13436.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-03-25 17:16:20 UTC
This regression was made and undone previously wrt bug 8335.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-03-25 17:24:13 UTC
It seems like it would be better to let the "pxpx" variant die, at least.  It's not really a particularly sane thing to permit.  Existing usages can be fixed easily enough.

One general problem here is that [[Image:Foo.jpg|some erroneous option|caption]] will silently eat the first option with no explanation as to what went wrong, and similarly for all options.  Perhaps noisier failure modes would be useful to allow people to debug this stuff.  That would definitely be a compatibility problem, but it might be a good idea looking forward.

Okay, this is causing a bit too much havoc.  Fixed in r32504.
