Description denelson83 2006-03-02 07:33:35 UTC
You know how adding "|XXXpx" to the wikicode of an image allows you to specify
how big the image is in a page, and how "height is computed to keep aspect
ratio", according to [[m:Help:Images and other uploaded files]].  Well, I came
across a page on the English Wikipedia,
<>, where someone was wanting to
actually change the aspect ratio of inline renderings of several images, by
typing "|XXXxYYYpx", presumably where XXX was the desired width of the image and
YYY was its desired height, probably not knowing that such a thing isn't
possible in MediaWiki.  So why not make it possible?

Resolving as INVALID, bug report seems to be misinterpretation of the existing 

XXXxYYYpx sizes the image so that its width is no greater than XXX and its height 
is no greater than YYY. This is used to size images of any aspect ratio to fit 
within a given box size.
Comment 2 denelson83 2006-03-02 08:40:22 UTC
So then how come this existing feature is not mentioned on [[m:Help:Images and
other uploaded files]]?  Did someone forget to put it in?

Note that MediaWiki has no official end-user documentation at this time;
what you're referring to is just some wiki page that some people threw
together over time. It may be incomplete, inaccurate, etc.
