Last column width and Category titles centred

In progress Last column width and Category titles centred

Post by emmama on July 2nd 2015, 9:27 am

Hi there, I have two questions.

1. How do I make the last column thinner and my category (left-hand column in) wider? I've tried other suggestions from other threads but they don't seem to work.

2. How do I centre the category information? So in the case of my site, the information I wish to centre is the titles like "The Necessities" and the last post information.

My site link is:http://tailsofkings.forumotion.comand my site used phpBB3 style (if I'm correct).

Much appreciated.

2. Center forum titles. You will have to add this to the title of each forum:
Code:
<center>FORUM TITLE</center>

@SLGray
Or using this CSS:
Code:

ul.topiclist.forums dd h3 {
  text-align: center !important;
}

I do not quite understand, could you post a sample image?

@JScript Sorry, your code didn't work. Basically, I'm trying to centre the forum names on all pages and well as the Last Posts column. So if you were to look at this image


When corrected the headings like "The Necessities", "Introductions" and "Admin Spot" would be centred over the secondary explanation (which is already centred). And the information in the last posts column (i.e. Thread name, date, poster) would also be centred.

As for the width of the column, I usedThis Thread (click me)for anyone who's wondering. Just change the code from '%' to 'px'.

I can see that. I was just hoping there was a working code I could add to my CSS to save me the time.

Also still looking for a code to centre my "Last Posts" column.

@emmama
Okay, replace the previous code to the this:
Code:

ul.topiclist.forums dd h3 {
  display: inherit !important;
  margin-bottom: -10px !important;
  margin-top: 0 !important;
  text-align: center !important;
}

Result:

Unfortunately after further exploring my site, these codes have only affected the forum table on the homepage. The tables in the subcategories are still out of alignment and look like this:


I'm also curious as to why my 'Author" column has gone missing. I've never touched it, but it's gone.

@emmama

Ok, in this case, remove all the old code and add this below:
Code:

dd.dterm {
  text-align: center;
}

This seems to have fixed the centre alignment, so thanks for that. I even managed to alter it so the Last Posts column was also centred. Only, it wouldn't centre the username of the poster. See here:


Also, my Authors column is still missing. I've seen threads of people using phpBB3 who wish to remove it, but I can't see it. I've not altered the template, so I'm not sure what could've happened.

Add this:
Code:

dd.lastpost span.color-groups {
  float: inherit !important;
}

That part I did not understand very well, you could post a "print"?
