From the release notes, major highlights:
'Fixed issue in the Journal that made image thumbnails not clickable'
Sorry, but I don't think that got fixed.. I just installed a fresh test copy of dnn7, added a Journal module, posted a picture and.. it's not clickable..
This is really frustrating.. I've been asking around and waiting for months and there are still no answers/fixes..
I can't advertize dnn's social features like this to my clients.. the first thing they're going to ask me is 'Why can't I click on the picture (thumbnail) I just posted?', 'Why can't you make pics bigger?' There's really no point to post 200px thumbnails that can't be enlarged..
I agree this needs to be fixed. (there are a lot of things about the core aspects of social that seem unfinished, I really hope they get addressed sooner rather than later.)
In the meantime, you will want to check out EasyDNN Gallery for the best clickable images in the Journal module.
(I am in no way affiliated with them, I just think it's the best I've seen yet for DNN Social )
I recommend posting your complaint / enhancement to DotNetNuke's support site. This is where the people who fix the issues eyes are.
Alternatively this is a fairly trivial update. I'd invest in partnering with a developer who can make these type of tweaks for you on a regular basis. There are a few systems in place to make it easy to find such developers
It was obviously posted there and dnn obviously knew about the issue..From the 7.0 release notes, major highlights:'Fixed issue in the Journal that made image thumbnails not clickable'If it's a fairly trivial update, I don't see why dnncorp wouldn't fix it?? It's not like they didn't have time since 6.2..I don't think I should invest in fixing a CORE dnn module at all. I don't ask for anything extra here just make the core social module work as advertized so I can deliver the solution that I promised to my clients based on dnn's promise.I do pay my fair share for 3rd party modules (where dnn takes a cut) and other development, etc. - Robert Fulop 5 months ago
I believe I've read that DNN relies on 3rd party developers to push the product enhancements. You might find Scott McCullock at Ventrian has just what you need. Watch the product video:
Thanks Dan, I watched the video, but Journal pics still aren't clickable with the Ventrian solution and you have to go to another place to enlarge image so it doesn't really fixes the problem..I just don't understand why dnncorp can't put a clickable lightbox in there.. I think it's very bad for any business to advertize features that don't actually work.. - Robert Fulop 5 months ago
