In progress Forum size

Post by catgirl on Sat Aug 27, 2016 9:15 pm

Hey! I hope this is in the right spot. It is kinda appearance and admin panel but I recently as last weekend have put up a new banner and I made it the exact same size as my original banner and everything was fine but when I uploaded it, the forum looked squished and everything kinda went to the middle and it just looked squished. So, I put the original banner up, the one I had before, and it still looked squished. So, I just put the newly created banner up and just increased the size of the forum width. I tried to make the banner bigger so it would fit but...the size did not change, not even a little. So...to my question, is there a way to fix this problem at all? Is there something I am not doing or is there something wrong with my forum that made it do this? Please help me. Thank you!

Yeah because like I said before I have changed the width number so that it wouldn't look strange for my members and guests. It is supposed to be at 70 but instead I think it is at 80 or something close to that. I compared it to another forum I run which a friend of mine is also running and we have the same forum width and when I put the width to 70% it looks squished and I have had that width since I first opened my forum. I thought something was wrong with it.

I changed the width of the forum. The banner won't change no matter what. I had to change the forum width so that it wouldn't look weird for the members and guests.

Okay, I will try to explain this again. My forum width was originally at 70%.
I decided to put up a new banner the exact same size as the one I had before with the 70 width and once I uploaded it, the forum got squished looking. Everything was kinda centered in the middle. I tried to see what would happen if I put my old banner back and it didn't fix the problem. It was still squished. So, I am wondering what I need to do to fix this. I don't know what is causing my forum to get squished like that. I changed it to 80% so that it wouldn't look weird for the members.
Does that clear things up a little? If I need to upload screen shots of what it looks like before then I will.

I understood what you meant the first time, @catgirl, I was only asking if you needed to adjust the banner size when you wanted to decrease your forum width to 70%. You can that via coding or simply editing the image itself. If you can post a screenshot about what happens when you decrease it to 70%, that would be great too.

When I change it to 70, this is what it does. I have had it on 70 since I created the forum and once I changed the banner, it does this...


If there are ways to fix this, please tell me so I will do it and hopfully get my forum back to normal for my members and new comers.

I don't think that did anything at all. I set it to "no" and then clicked upload and uploaded my banner and then added to my forum and it didn't change anything. I even tried changing it back to the original forum size "70" and it didn't work. Anything else?

i think the solution is to edit your overall_header template and separate the header from the wrapper so the width of the banner wont be influenced by the forum width ( i think but iam not a coder )

maybe you can try Ange's solution from this thread

There's a max-height for the banner to prevent overlapping of the forum wrapper. You can remove it with this CSS rule :

Code:
#logo img{max-height:none}


If the header begins overlapping the wrapper use the following CSS rule to prevent that :

Code:
#wrap{padding-top:300px!important;}
Increase the amount of padding on top if necessary. That will move the content in the wrapper down so that it's visible.

Okay. I tried it and It didn't do anything. The banner didn't move or do anything I don't think and I even went back down to 70 as the width and it was the same as before. Squished looking. Maybe I need to make a new banner or something. I will look through that thread some more for the heck of things. I am not sure what is going on.

I might start using pictureshack for the big pictures and servimg for small ones. Maybe that will work things out. I might just try to make another banner and see what happens. I guarantee that nothing will change but you never know.

Hello @catgirl,

Can you please add the new banner and restore the forum to how you had it in order for use to see the actual problem you have?
Changing the forum width is no solution. Maybe something may have only went wrong to you and not to all of us.

When you do that please inform us to see the problem. Smile :rose:
