The left and right arrows on the Random Media appear to be gone!
No response? Still no arrows!
I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to. Do you mean the arrows on either side of the screen when a post has multiple images upload and you click on one of the thumbnails? I don't seem to have any issues there...I still have the arrows. Have you tried logging out and back in? What about clearing cache, cookies, etc.?
I guess then I don't know what Random Media is and what I'm "missing". It might be associated with Albums, but I can't seem to find that either. Can someone direct me to the issue so I can see for myself?
The main page forum listing by categories has a space at the bottom where Random Media are displayed. It can optionally display either new media or random media. There are 10 images displayed at one time with arrows to scan the ones that are visible. If you double click on one of them, it displays it in the Media Center where user albums and images are stored. Clicking on Media in the top navigation will show the Media Center.
Until a couple days ago, I would see 10 random images across the screen. If I put my cursor near the right side of the rightmost image, an arrow would appear. If I click on the arrow the images would shift to the left and two more random images would show on the right. Likewise, there was an arrow on the leftmost image that would move the images back to the right. I still see 10 images now but no arrows appear for shifting. I've rebooted my PC but that didn't help.
My system shows 9 images with a white arrow left and right. When I click on the right one a new image appears.
However, there are only 10 images shown.
IF I reduce the font size in my browser (Chrome) to less than 100 % then all 10 images are shown with NO arrows.
I'm on a Mac using Firefox and everything still looks the same here, there are 10 photos with only four showing at a time, and the arrows are there to navigate back and forth.
At my current computer monitor zoom, only 9 of the 10 pictures show. But I can click and drag to the left and the tenth picture comes up. On my Android tablet, only a few of the pictures show but I can swipe left or right to see the rest.
Android phone - 2 images appear on the screen and I can scroll/flip with my finger through a total of 10 images. No arrows.
Seems to me that it is behaving properly. There are only 10 media images. If you have sized your screen so that all 10 are shown, it makes sense that there are no arrows because there is nothing else to scroll to.
My question is... Why are there only 10 images? Certainly we have more interesting stuff to show than that!
Probably a setting in the forum background to allow 10 at a time. You can click on the word Random Media in the banner and see many, many images. Interestingly though, the current images at the bottom of the main board page don't seem to be included in the most recent list of images.
The feature may optionally list random media or most recent media. It is currently set for random. It changes from time to time while you are on-line. The feature may change some when we deploy the new Message Board in a month or two.
