    waaaaah! help, there’s something wrong with the thumbnail resize on the homepage… What happened? the images shrunk too much. >.<

    • http://randalsilvey.blogspot.com/ Randal Silvey

      Same here. Some script that this relies upon must have been changed. I can’t figure out which and how to fix it.

    • http://randalsilvey.blogspot.com/ Randal Silvey

      In case my fix comment doesn’t get approved (it had a link to where I found the fix & thus marked as potential spam) I’ll just copy/paste the fix.

      Go to Blogger > Theme > Edit HTML, search for “bp_thumbnail_resize” function

      Should be something like this:

      function bp_thumbnail_resize(*,*){……….}

      Then change/edit inside the function:
      “/s72-c/” to “/s72-c-k-no/”

      Basically, go to Edit HTML. CTRL+F to search for /s72-c/ and replace it like mentioned above.

        OMG!!! man, you’re life-saver. it totally worked! thaaaanks much (Y)

        • http://randalsilvey.blogspot.com/ Randal Silvey

          Today I had the same problem again. Changed it back to “/s72-c/”, that fixed it. What are they doing?
