Description Sean Lamb 2005-06-29 20:25:55 UTC
The image within the infobox on is
smaller than the infobox's standard 280px wide.  The infobox stretches it
sideways but doesn't stretch it vertically by the same proportion like it did
before the upgrade this week.  It appears that the troublemaker is the "none"
modifier in the image tag.

The following code in the Wikipedia Sandbox demonstrates the issue:

[[Image:John W. Garrett.jpg|none|280px|John W. Garret]] <!-- distorted -->
[[Image:John W. Garrett.jpg|thumb|280px|John W. Garret]] <!-- proportional
resize -->

Tested and confirmed on Firefox 1.0 and MSIE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.050301-1526;

Comment 3 David Benbennick 2005-07-01 18:33:08 UTC
See [[User:Dbenbenn/sandbox]].  With a "frame", the image is not scaled up at all.  
With "thumb", the image is scaled correctly.  With no frame, the width is scaled, but not the 

Looking at the page source is instructive.  The HTML <img> tags are

 none: <img ... width="200" height="39" longdesc="/wiki/Image:WikiThanks.png" />
 frame: <img ... width="43" height="39" longdesc="/wiki/Image:WikiThanks.png" />
 thumb: <img ... width="200" height="181" longdesc="/wiki/Image:WikiThanks.png" />

The (height, width) should be (181, 200) in all three cases.

Not a duplicate of bug 2632.
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2005-07-04 19:35:09 UTC
Made a correct fix for this now: the height was incorrectly calculated.
