True, the old header-pictures are smaller in size and are stretched in the new layout. The overlay is part of the picture, so unfortunately it's not a matter of simply disabling it. I can rebuild header-pictures from one of the images from the gallery. But since the w / h ratio is different for the header-picture than the images in the gallery, I part of the picture needs to be chopped. I don't know if that will give a nice result when this is done automatically. Let me look into this options.

Yeah, I do worry that if the headers are "reproduced" in an automated way, then it may not look great and could potentially be very destructive if done poorly. All pictures are unique and are cropped/zoomed in different ways in the header, therefore I can't see a one-size-fits-all solution working. So, definitely take your time with looking at potential solutions for that. I imagine if you want a good result, you'd have to involve AI image recognition somehow, if that's even possible for LSI.

If you end up not being able to find a solution, then we'd have to manually reupload all the header images ourselves, but I'm hoping we don't have to reach that point (not to mention it poses a challenge when we currently can't choose from the pre-uploaded images). I've already been updating the headers for some artists, but obviously it'd be way too time-consuming to do this for every artist we work on

Fixed, well... sort of. It now gives the reason of the problem, a HTTP connection was used. The system could not handle insecure connections (HTTP), but no check was done and the system simply stopped. LetsSingIt has been on a secure connection (HTTPS) for ages. With the new system, also security was inproved, HTTP connections to load external content are not allowed any longer.

One simple thing you can do what you run into this: often the picture can be loaded over HTTPS as well. So change HTTP to HTTPS to see if that works. If that still doesn't work, the picture cannot be used unfortunately.

Great! As long as a descriptive error is provided, that's all that matters. It's important that the user understands what they did incorrectly instead of leaving them in the dark. And changing "HTTP" to "HTTPS" indeed worked for that image

I should mention that uploading header pictures on the new site has improved significantly since my last post here. In fact, I think that might have been the last major issue I've experienced with it (and I haven't even encountered that HTTP error with any images since, so it's probably rare). We're getting there!

(Also, pardon my late response again - it's been a crazy month )

Also, wanted to make a separate post to chime in on this issue that Scott posted as it seems to have confused Ray:

The members profiles are nearly blank in the new system. You have to go to the old system to post messages for birthday wishes.

I think what's throwing Scott off is that the profiles on the old site have the convenient tabs on top that separate the different sections of your profile (contributions, comments, profile, etc.). The new site doesn't have these, which is likely why he described the new profiles as "nearly blank". See this side-by-side image for comparison.

I agree that these tabs should be re-added to make things more clear and intuitive, so you can "jump" to the section of the profile you want. As it is now, you're forced to scroll endlessly until you find the section you want, which isn't really ideal.

So to Scott, you don't have to go to the old system to post messages for birthday wishes - you just have to scroll down to find the comment box in the new system.

We're getting there!

And of course, I spoke too soon...just encountered another image today that's not loading or giving me any prompt when I try to add it as a header. Much like the previous "problem" image, it's sending me back to the three-button menu without any explanation.

The URL is HTTPS, so that's not the issue, and the problem persists even after re-uploading to Imgur, which is a first. So clearly it's an issue with the image itself - maybe it's too small? Either way, seems like another type of error message needs to be made for whatever this error "type" is.
