quick fix is to change in common.js

at line 36
$(document).ready( function() {
//$('.collapse-open').show(); //original line
//$('.collapse-closed').hide();//original line
$('.collapse-open').hide(); // modified line
$('.collapse-closed').show(); // modified line

We have the config option $g_preview_attachments_inline_max_size. We can auto-open attachments that are up to such size. Anything that is larger should be downloaded when the attachment is expanded.

thanks for answering...

But even if you set $g_preview_attachments_inline_max_size the picture is still collapsed.
That means you spend the bandwidth but still need one more click to see the image.

The request is to have it directly expanded.

I agree. In my opinion, it would be very useful to display the images directly if the images correspond with values ​​specified in "$g_preview_attachments_inline_max_size".

display the images directly if the images correspond with values ​​specified in "$g_preview_attachments_inline_max_size".

That would require to expand the section by default in specific cases, which IIRC (it's been a while since I looked at this part of the code) is not feasible with the current API and related javascript.

I had exact same problem (my testers never noticed the "+" icon to expand the attached images and I'm tired to always explain the same things again and again).

I came up with the following solution for me:

  • patch in "core/print_api.php", function "print_bug_attachment":

$g_collapse_cache_token[$t_collapse_id] = false;

change to

$g_collapse_cache_token[$t_collapse_id] = true;

  • set in config_inc.php:
    $g_preview_attachments_inline_max_size = 2 1024 1024;
    $g_preview_max_width = 250;.
    $g_preview_max_height = 250;

  • install "Lightbox Plugin"

==> Would be nice to have the a global variable to decide if image should be shown collapsed or not.

BTW: Thanks a lot for this great and easy to use software.

Committer: vboctor Details Diff
Expand image attachments by default

If an attachment of type image is smaller than the maximum preview
threshold ($g_preview_attachments_inline_max_size), Mantis was only
displaying the attachment's name and a [+] button, forcing an extra
click for the user to view it.

We now display images by default, allowing the user to optionally hide
them instead by clicking the [-] button.
