Now, I don’t wanna fade
But I ain’t gonna run
I’m resting my head on these stones
God, what have you done to you and me
I’m tired of scaring the future away
No road ahead, the fire is dead
Father don’t you see in front of you
Is what the chase has left of me

NEW solution! - Get the old gifset/photoset dimensions back on your blog

Please note that this is only those of you who want the 500px width.

As I’m writing this, the solution I posted yesterday has over 2.000 notes, which is mind-boggling.

I now have what I consider to be an even better solution, because the old one was far from perfect and actually didn’t work with some people’s themes and certain kinds of photosets (because it didn’t resize images).

The viewers of your blog will need to have javascript enabled for this to work, which is really the only downside. But in my experience, most people don’t disable javascript.

The script is available for copying on pastebin.

  1. Head to the html editor.
  2. Hit Ctrl + F and search for “{Photoset”
  3. Make sure that it says “{Photoset-500}” as this will not work if it says “{Photoset}”.
  4. If you used my old html based solution, delete the code pictured below and type in “{Photoset-500}” instead.

  5. Then scroll down to the bottom of the code. Paste my script right above </body>.
  6. Update preview, then press Save and you’re done!

This has been tested in both Chrome, Firefox & Internet Explorer and I’ve encountered no problems.

Enjoy!

I have a new and improved solution HERE.

Please note that this is only those of you who want the 500px width.

Okay, so hopefully everyone’s got that userstyles script hooked up to their browser so everything looks okay on their dashboard. But gifsets probably still look like crap on your blog (they sure did on mine), since that script only targets your dashboard.

So after putting the brain factory into action, I came up with this code to fix that. Available for copying on pastebin.

If you’re not used to messing about with your theme, I’d suggest copying the entirety of your html and saving it in a notepad file before doing anything.

Simply locate and remove the {Photoset} or {Photoset-500} code in the html of your theme and paste my code in its place.

Here’s what my code looked like before:

And after:

If you can’t get the code to work for you or something is unclear, don’t hesitate to send me a message and I’ll help you as soon as I’m able to.
