Recently I have tried to look at my feed on ruSO and saw this:

unscalled image

I've already posted a bug report about the localization issue with the feed. About unscaled images I decided to post here, on Meta.SE.

Image in the original post is scaled.


I don't think it is the responsibility of SO to scale the images you put in your posts which end up in the RSS feed. The images are taken as-is. How your RSS feed reader renders it is not the problem of SO.

A solution to this problem could be that SO scales all images put in the RSS feed, which could be quite costly for a little gain.

For completeness, this is the actual HTML content from the RSS summary, which shows there is no formatting whatsoever (as it should):

<p>На текущий момент стандартных библиотек для графики действительно нет в C++. Нужно использовать сторонние, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_platform-independent_GUI_libraries#C_.2F_C.2B.2B_packages" rel="nofollow noreferrer">список</a> можно посмотреть на википедии. Но уже сейчас есть соответствующее предложение о добавлении такого функционала и в стандартную часть.</p>

<p>Например, на <a href="https://isocpp.org/std/status" rel="nofollow noreferrer">странице</a> сайта, посвящённого стандартизации C++ есть такая картинка (см. нижний правый угол):</p>

  <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/euunR.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/euunR.png" alt="2D graphics"></a></p>

<p>Черновик предложения, озаглавленный как <em>"A Proposal to Add 2D Graphics
Rendering and Display to C++"</em> содержит на текущий момент 227 (!) страниц и доступен по <a href="http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2016/p0267r2.pdf" rel="nofollow noreferrer">ссылке</a>.</p>

  • Just add max-width: 100% to images so that they'll look nice, nope? – Qwertiy Jan 18 '17 at 10:23

    No, RSS should not interfere with the layout in my opinion. It creates problems everywhere for those who implement RSS readers. @Qwertiy – Patrick Hofman Jan 18 '17 at 10:23
  • Do you mean rss readers won't accept <img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/euunR.png" alt="2D graphics" style="max-width: 100%;">? – Qwertiy Jan 18 '17 at 10:26
  • That code should be implemented in the RSS reader, not in the source. – Patrick Hofman Jan 18 '17 at 10:27
  • Why do you think they don't? – Qwertiy Jan 18 '17 at 10:28
  • Why do you think they do? – Patrick Hofman Jan 18 '17 at 10:29
  • It won't become worse then now if they don't. Actually result will be absolutely the same as now in that case. But if the do, it'll become better. Also I thing they do, as google shows some results about styling rss. – Qwertiy Jan 18 '17 at 10:36
