Image Zoom/Popup Issues

2020-08-31 07:58:51

The feature we recently added (allowing you to view a fullsized image of an adoptable) had to be removed due to an issue that we can't find a workaround for.

What was this feature? When an adoptable's image is clicked, a full view appears in a popup.

The issue: In some areas like the adopts page and search, clicking images goes to the profile. We had to move this link to be the name, lvl, gender, etc. info instead of the images. Some users said they were having trouble accidentally clicking the image when they wanted to go to the adopt's profile instead.

Workarounds: We originally tried to resolve this by making the fullsized image direct to the adopt's profile (so even if you accidentally click the popup, you can still get to profile). However, we got feedback that this was not idea.

We then tried to remove the popups from areas where images used to link to profiles. Unfortunately this caused a bug.

We have looked into other workarounds such as having a clickable magnifying glass icon, but there is some concern that this could get in the way of adoptables images since it would have to be positioned near them. The other possible workaround was that the popup could contain a mini profile with some basic information, but this wouldn't be the full profile so still might be a problem.

We will keep working on this!

You should still be able to click on images to go to profiles. If not, let us know in bugs and make sure to include what part of the site it is.

We originally had the enlarge hover on the site (when it first launched), but took it out due to how annoying it was to accidentally hover over it.

it looks like we can't click the image at all to go to the profile anymore. is that going to be brought back?

I also prever having a large image to click to reach profiles. Maybe a possibility is having a hovering pop up on mouseover, that wouldn't cover the image you want to click? Or limiting the popup to Explore, where there is no way to zoom in.

Testing New Feature

2020-08-31 07:30:37

We are testing a new potential feature that copies an adopt image to use as a species preview. Let us know if you like it, or have any issues with it so far.

If you are an artist/species owner, you can now copy an adopt to update your species 'preview'—this will replace the essential layer only image with whatever image you choose.

The adopt must belong to you, and must be out of storage (this is needed in order to copy the images, as stored adopts do not have images).
You will get an error if the adoptable does not have a rendered image to be copied, but you can solve this quickly by viewing the adopt on their profile.

Would it default if the mascot is transformed/deleted/stored?

OMG SO BLESSED RN I LOVE THIS UPDATE

Enlarge Images

2020-08-30 15:52:25

You can now click on adopt images to see a larger view.

Since this involves clicking on the image itself, areas that previously linked to profiles from the image will now link to profiles from the adoptable’s name instead.

Marwynn
has been released!

"With a Welsh name that means "Friend of the Sea", these little creatures live up to their title. They behave much like puppies and seek to befriend any creature they come across. They are a little naive, as they are too trusting of other species. Many Marwynn end up being only about the size of a medium dog. They can pull themselves along the land quickly with their extra set of forelegs."
