delete URL parameter wide=1 from URL

I am using the default theme.

My question is how toke take out the URL parameter wide=1 from the URL on the link from the IOTD and from the Viewing image block.

For example:
Block IOTD

Original link
i understood that taking out wide=1 bot, left and right block will be displayed.

The same happen In the block main_multi_content wth image. the first one as thumbnail is without wide-1 but than when i click in the next image it call viewing image with the parameter wide=1
as example below.

Thank you for your precious help

There's no way to remove this right now without custom code. Fortunately it's not too hard.

Make a sources_custom/hooks/systems/startup/dewide.php file:


<?php /*

class Hook_startup_dewide
   function run()

I think in v10 we'll remove the automatic 'wide' for galleries/IOTDs. As you've found, it is hard to make it work consistently, and I think consistent and simpler defaults would be better.

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
