You can probably edit that in ACP > Display > Templates > Post & Private Messages > Posting_body

Yeah it can most likely be done that way, But let me try something on my test forum with css first and see if that dose the trick. If not then i will check out the template possibility.

Info added

This is something that appears/hovers over any of the options you can add,
Like if you go over the different things like colors text etc.. it changes and tells you what it is.

So i am not sure how to get rid of that,It would be silly to do so because it helps members know whats what when they are creating a topic or replying to one, If here is a way to get rid of it then my guess it would be in the template.. But not sure? i will have to have a look at it.

Thing is kirk, whenever I do go over a thing like that, it moves the page down. It gets very annoying, because it keeps moving the page up and down.

Ohhh wait one sec. I got a better idea. There surely has to be a way to move the message and smiley box DOWN, right? Because if I move the message and smiley box down, then there wouldnt be a problem with the page moving up and down! Smile

To find the smiley box, put this in the search box: </fieldset>
You should see just above it some details about the smiley box.

OK. I'm not sure if you can modify that message (I thought you wanted to add something) so I'll need to go over the template and experiment a little bit. I won't be able to do it until tomorrow however as I'm supposed to be working all night tonight.

you can move things around in the template to a certain extent.
I mean it depends what where, And i dont know what you mean by it';s making the page/message jump around.

Is this just something happening to you.. have you tried different browser,

Other then that if you do just want to try to move the smiles down etc, locate it where Darren has said and try to add a line break or two. <br>

However it is hard to tell what would work and what would not without doing it my self seeing whats what, I will also try to make a lil time to check it out, But i wish i understood more of why your page would be jumping/moving with the hover-over?

Would you like me to give you our link and a test account to show you what I mean?

But to simplify this to the least possible extent, all I want to do is know how to move the message box, and smiley box down. Thats all I want to know lol. That would fix the problem Wink

Kirk, I think it would be easier to see for yourself what I mean. Can I give you an admin account, and you can come on my forum to see what I mean?

So, as I gave you the location to look before, I'm guessing that you haven't done anything Wink

If you edit the template: Posting_body, put this in the search box: 'helpbox'
You should come to these two lines:
Code:
<div class="left"><span id="helpbox" class="helpline"></span></div> <!-- must enclose helpbox in a floating div for ie bug -->
      <div class="clear"></div>

In the line above it that's empty, simply put in a line break, or as many as you like
Code:
<br />
It will force everything to move down as many lines as you put in.

Removing those two lines would actually cause Javascript errors every time you hovered over a BBcode button. Not that could cause too much of an issue, but its bad practice.
If someone was to hover over a button before all the Javascript on the page had executed though it would potentially halt the javascript engine and cause issues.

A better solution would just be sticking the a style="display:none" attribute Wink

See, I didn't investigate it, I just did a quick test and didn't see any issues on Pun. If it was wanted to be removed, I'd have investigated it to make sure that there wasnt any JS issues. Razz

Thanks for that though LG, Ill be keeping a record of it haha.

No worries Very Happy

Did you simply want the text moved down? You did confuse me as well haha.

The template your after is Profile > Signature
But I don't think there's anything to modify it there, so Ill leave you in the capable hand of either LG or RD Wink
