I updated the covers of one of my series. I went to Amazon, right clicked the cover image, copied the image link address and replaced the old image address with this new image address. As you can see, this images are slightly large!

How do I solve this?  :help

There's nothing wrong with LARGE. It catches the eyes.  Grin

And just so you know, I had the same problem at first. Like Tim said, look for the SL tag in the code and change the number 125 and that will fix it.

Fixed.

On the small images, there was _SL125_. before the jpg in the location code. I simply copied that into the image locations which didn't have it.

In the sig box where you post the links, look for something that indicates image height or width.  Like this:





Your previous cover links should all have them.  Whatever those say, copy that portion into the same spot in the new links.

Hope that helps.  :)

Gotta love software

Yeah. As a coder from way back, I sometimes wonder why our civilization hasn't failed already with the way people code these days.  :shrug


The warning signs are already here.

Is it not possible to keep the posts started by a user and delete everything else? We already cannot remove our own posts if they started a thread.

Not with the current forum software.

If I'd designed it, the code would split off the first post, making the second post the new OP, and then allowing the old one to be deleted as a stand alone post. But even the GDPR mod doesn't do this.

The only way to do this at the moment is to request your OP post to be deleted, in which case I'll split your post out, and then you can delete it.

Mind you, a thread with nothing useful in it, may just be moved to moderator limbo, so it cant be seen, but retains the post counts.

I'll take each request as it comes, and discuss it.

The following are topic areas which are the equivalent of walking into a minefield on this forum.

Said mines can react in a number of ways, including turning the post into a zombie (cut from the thread and cast into zombieland without a title), moving the entire thread into private opt-in space, locking of the thread, being met with the forum equivalent of friendly stoning, or turning the post into the current forum football.

Beware social media hype. Repeating here will be met with reality, and you may not like the result.

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

Rapid Release = bad quality book. [Simply not true, and often just Trad propaganda.]

Rapid Release = one sign of being a scammer. [Not true. The fact some scammers rapid release is co-incidental. There are plenty of genuine authors who rapid release, and the fact they do should never be used to speculate they are doing something wrong.]

Making statements of fact, without supporting evidence, which are in fact personal opinions. [We are writers. Be specific about what you're saying, and where it comes from.]

Bringing an argument here from another forum because it was shut down there. [Just don't. Anything discussed somewhere else can be reported here, and discussed here, but not if you're just moving an argument in order for it to continue where it left off.]

Hijacking a thread for the purpose of stopping the discussion of the original topic. [Not tolerated here. Threads will be split, hijacks will be moved.]

I'll add others when they present themselves.
