Solved Stop Automatic Forum Resize

Post by PA on August 24th 2015, 9:21 am

Hello,

I've noticed that forumotion forums resize the entire page when I make the browser small. I'd like to remove that feature because it is screwing up the look of my forum.

This is how my forum looks


When i resize it, it all goes to hell. The banner doesn't resize for some ridiculous reason. Additionally, the sidebar on the side is locked, so once the forum resizes, it overflows into the main wrapper.


In contrast, when I resize an invision free forum like this one
http://z10.invisionfree.com/CAUTIONTOTHEWIND/index.php?

the forum doesn't resize.

So I need to know how to stop this resizing.

Hi @PA,

To stop the widget column from overlapping the forum, you should set a margin onto the wrapper about the size of the column. CSS example for that :
Code:
#wrap { margin-left:280px }

About the banner not resizing, you can make it resize with the proper CSS, however it looks like you have already done that.

Lastly, the reason for the wrapper resizing is a percentage width value. Percentages adjust based on the viewpoint of the user. If you want to completely remove this, you can set a pixel value instead for the wrapper width. You can also set a minimum-width value if you want it to resize only down to a specific value.

I could have sworn I tried that. I think I used #wrapper instead of #wrap. Agh
Sort of got the trick though, look at the default forumotion CSS and use that to see what to edit.
Thanks Ange.
