Photo Viewing in RJ -- Horrible!

    Does anyone have an issue with the way you can view photos in someone's profile? I find it horribly annoying and inefficient. If RJ's goal was to stop people from browsing through other members' pix, they've succeeded.

    I like how you can see small thumbnails of all the pix in someone's profile. But what I think is a huge failure in website design and user-friendliness is that when you click on one photo, you cant scroll to the next one automatically. The first time you click it you get a slightly largely version of the photo. But then to see its full size you have to click "View Full Photo and Comments," which then takes you to a totally separate page. Now, from this page, if you were able to move forward and back between ALL the user's pix, that'd be great. But you can't. Instead, to view any other of a hot guy's 20 pix, you have to go backwards in your browser, click on another thumbnail, then click again on that photo. WOW. How stupid.

    I don't think it was always like this. Maybe a year ago it wasn't. I think RJ is the only site that I know of that doesn't allow you to move forward and back between a set of photos. Archaic I say!!

    Can the admins fix this? Does this drive anyone else crazy?

    I agree with this assessment. Most people click on the thumbnails because they want to see the larger version of the picture. This makes the intermediate size picture (with a link to "View full photo and comments") step unnecessary.

    Hi guys,

    This sounds like a pretty reasonable idea. I'll add a "Next photo" and "Previous photo" link on the large photo page. I'll try and get it done as soon as I can. It could be as much as a week or so.

    Thanks,

    I don't find that annoying as much as members who are to LAZY to rotate pics and I literally have to contort my neck and head at obscure angles just to see their picsicon_evil.gif

    Yeah, I think it's kinda annoying, I always forget and click on the picture to go to the next one like on Facebook and I'm always like why isn't this working? lolicon_razz.gif

    Thanks Chris! If it's not difficult to adjust, it'd make the site that much better (it really is an awesome site!)

    I'm sure there's a way to improve it, but keep in mind that on an ad-supported site, clicks are everything (almost everything). I accept some minor annoyances unless I have to pay for the site.

    I found it to be a bit annoying as well. However, it wasn't something that was so annoying that I really paid much attention to it.
