    The fuckin' Apple news broke the god damn layout of the Home page and now everything's squashed (links on the left) and somewhat hidden (new comments on the right).

    [​IMG]

    My screen size is 1440x900 and still isn't wide enough for it but that's also because the picture's too damn big and unoptimised!

    Come on guys, please fix it!

    And lastly,

    I don't see that option anywhere. Take a screenshot if you don't mind.

    The picture is waaaaaaay too big for a news post picture. I tried grabbing the large thumbnail from imgur to see if that's good enough, but I'm not sure about the final size.

    Test:

    Edit: Yeah, replace the picture with this one.

    Leave apple out of this :P

    Anyway, I changed the picture. It looked fine on my large and small monitors, so I didn't think it was an issue.

    The problem comes from the fact that when you expand the news piece, it displays the picture at its full resolution (at least that was my experience). If the picture happens to be gigantic, that means it displaces everything on the homepage if the article containing the image is expanded. Even the large thumbnail isn't perfection, but it's close enough to not be a bother. It's just a wide picture.

    I understand, i guess my configuration just accomodates large pictures better.

    No, this was totally Apple's fault! They're conspiring to take over the Temp!
