Riff poster images now difficult to download
« on: July 19, 2018, 01:35:50 PM »
Until this week, I could click on the small poster on the riff page to get a large version to use as the image for the riff on my media player. Now, mousing over the poster shows "Preview" and "Details" buttons (or "Play" if I own the riff) and won't allow access to the poster. I have to view the page source and find the image link to download the poster image.

Could you add a "View Poster" button or something?

They are usually in the threads created here on the forum, if that helps?
FINE

True, but I'm not sure going to the forum and finding the thread is less work. Plus, the threads sometimes aren't created at the same time as the riff product page.

There are workarounds that I can live with; it's just annoying.

Not even sure why there is a need for it all. You are already on the page with the preview and details....

At least when I make new boards and threads for new 'Trax I always would just right click on the poster and get the url for it... Now I will have to go through what the OP says he did to find the image.

This was fixed - basically we made some changes to the product templates, resulting in an overlay that prevented the image from being easily saved.

Also, the image that used to be there was the full resolution version, but it's now a slightly smaller and compressed version for performance (otherwise we're sending hundreds of KB to everyone, even mobile browsers). So now to get the bigger image, just click the image itself to open the lightbox, and save the image that appears.
