Yeah sure, although I think something like this might look a bit better if we can do it?

I'd prefer it if it looked like this too. On my work PC the photo is the middle.

I don't if its possible but surely if it was 3 images (logo set to the left, award centered & faded picture set to the right) it would scale better.
that way we only need to change the right image every so often.

The Forum Witches needs to centred and possibly enlarged, is the problem on the mobile. And the picture needs to be set on the far right and perhaps stretched a bit further...

I agree. It doesn't look great on mobile. But I guess we have to find a middle ground somewhere. What platform do people mostly use Moopy on? I guessing if like me it's mixed then how much? If mobile is the dominant platform then we need to cater to thar more...

any type of website in this day and age should be responsive, ie suitable for multiple platforms. the rest of this website actually is so it's weird that the banner doesn't automatically fit its size accordingly

I don't think this is possible. I will look.

Regarding other questions on mobile (or 'responsive' as it's known) design: I won't lie, neither me or Samuel are fully code fluent in HTML or XML based web-design - or exactly how the various code interaction for the various xenforo variables works - and we do our best with the knowledge that we do have. In old Moopy, we got away with simply finding the relevant piece of code & shoehorning in what we could - moving the positioning of tags or adding in advertising, for example. Doing that here doesn't appear to comply with the way responsive design works, obviously. There *are* responsive design variables in the admin panel and I think that includes banners (although not advertising) so i'll have a look tonight and see if I can make sense of it. And usually if we have an issue, someone has asked on the xenforo forums before, so that helps, so I will do some in-depth research when I have chance.

tl;dr: I'll see if I can do anything but you don't pay me enough to actually be excellent at this

when I was helping putting up a responsive website some years back it was simply a matter of uploading a large enough picture and it would scale accordingly. the file uploaded as banner might not be wide enough to fill out a desktop screen (whereas width is not the problem on the mobile screen, height is, or the proportion between these two). could of course be something else at play here

I understand the concepts, but my coding days are way behind me tbh.

Sure we could get some Indian kid to do it on fiverr or PPH or something though for like $10

Can we go back to the original that worked until we sort this one?

I'll sort out a replacement text one when I get back from work. There must be a workaround for the photo ones but it'll give us a stopgap while we work out what the HELL IS GOING ON with this stretched low-res image hell.

Can anyone truly summarise what they think the problem is? As far as i can see the responsive design is doing everything it's supposed to do. It's taken the image and fit it to scale.

If that's wrong then the banner itself needs changing, which is something anyone can do (and then i can upload it)

So Loreen is out...

Any suggestions for who or what should be up there next?

Something with just three elements please; the current one's a little too small for me to read on my mobile.
