Description baumanns 2006-07-04 06:45:17 UTC
Like the summary already says, I miss the small 'enlarge' icon in the <gallery>. 
If you show an image as a thumbnail there is this icon, but if you make a
gallery it isn't visible.
Please add this icon to the gallery or hide it in the 'thumb'-view. 

Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-07-04 06:46:15 UTC
There isn't one, so you can't miss it.
Comment 2 baumanns 2006-07-04 12:25:42 UTC
I know that there isn't one. That was my point... 
Why isn't in the gallery an enlarge-icon?

I hope you now know what I mean. Sorry if I wasn't accurate enough.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-07-04 16:12:55 UTC
1. You can do the exact same thing by clicking on the image
2. Adding an enlarge icon wasn't in the original design for galleries; it would
clutter them up
Comment 4 baumanns 2006-07-04 16:57:20 UTC
Thanks for the answer.

1. Yes, I know.
2. Okay, that's comprehensible.
But why we have the 'enlarge' icon in the thumb-view? That's not consistent, I
think. If we haven't this icon in the galleries, we also shouldn't have it in
the thumb-view. 


Comment 5 baumanns 2006-07-23 11:11:45 UTC
And what about the opposite: Hide the 'useless' enlarge image in the thumb view.
It thakes unnecessarily space...
Would also be more consistent I think.
Comment 6 baumanns 2006-07-23 11:12:50 UTC
Maybe a link makes sense:
Comment 7 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-07-23 20:42:22 UTC
I believe the logic is that an enlarge button is somewhat useful, and a single
unobtrusive enlarge button for a thumbnail that's probably captioned anyway is
therefore good, but it would look ugly if you had a ton of them in a gallery.
