'Open in thread' does not always lock on to the post (General)

Hello

After creating the Github issue #356 Milo and I had a short discussion about reading the sizes of the images and when this is possible and when not. We came to the following conclusion.

It's technically impossible to determine the size of an image until load process is finished, when the image gets loaded from an external source. This is, what a browser does and we can not improve anything in that case. Reading your threads i.e. about loading images via unencrypted connections into a page, that itself was loaded over an encrypted connection, we assume that your forum loads a bunch of external images.

The displaying of entries and threads with these images will not benefit from a function that determines the size of an image, uploaded to and locally stored at the forum server.

Tschö, Auge
