When sharing mandelbulber params, I've found that the easiest way is to post them as a comment wrapped inside a code tag/block. Unfortunately, this stretches the comment width to about 8000px on my screen (example), making reading comments cumbersome. Updating the .code style with max-width, after width fixes it (should work on all semi-modern browsers).

styles.css:
Code:
.code
{
font-family: "courier new", "times new roman", monospace;
font-size: 90%;
line-height: 1.3em;
margin: 1px auto 1px auto;
padding: 1px;
width: 99%;

/* must be declared after width and use a different unit */
/* reference: http://reference.sitepoint.com/css/max-width */
max-width: 800px;

/* Don't wrap its contents, and show scrollbars. */
white-space: nowrap;
overflow: auto;
/* Stop after about 24 lines, and just show a scrollbar. */
max-height: 24em;
}

PS. The other approach, attaching the .fract file to a topic, doesn't work on submissions in the user galleries (or I'm doing something wrong), as there is no corresponding topic created. Creating a separate topic for each image feels a little redundant.

ok, now the code block is 8000px wide, but with a little flair you can select the whole last line without selecting the whole page.
works!

I think, I have to make some more simple way to paste parameters on forums from Mandelbulber. My idea is to generate some text which will consist the parameters which are different than default. This will compress it significantly.

A simpler way of sharing params would be a welcome addition; even better if we can copy to/parse from the clipboard (a la MB3D).

Have you thought about compressing the .fract? I tried bzipping a return to roots.fract, followed by base64 encoding; it reduced the size from 12450 to 3911 bytes.

Please download Mandelbulber 1.04. There is already implemented copy/paste function with "compressed" settings format.
