Ok. My forum is really narrow.

Post by LostLegend on July 5th 2010, 2:47 pm

I use an imac that has around 32 inch screen. My forum looks really narrow, especially in posts. I have about a handspan left on either side of my forum.

*Handspan* -forum- *Handspan*

I know it isn't my computer because this forum looks absolutely fine (This message goes all the way from the left to the right of my screen)

Is there a setting for changing this or something I should look for in the theme?

(Please note increasing forum width does nothing. I have an orange border around my forum and it only increases that)

My forum: http://naruto-role-play-rpg.forumotion.com/index.htm
(Please tell me if you see the same thing)

EDIT: Activated announcements to show you what I see. There is still space on the left and right of the announcement and the forum does not fill all the way under the announcement.
EDIT2: Changed width to 30% as a temporary fix. Does anyone have any ideas about this though?

======

Side thing: Anyone know how to remove the ad banner from showing up from this? (On my description)
Code:

<style type="text/css">body, a, a:hover {cursor: url(http://cur.cursors-4u.net/special/spe-2/spe114.cur), progress;}</style>

Admin Panel ► General ? First Configuration Tab (Under Forum) ► Scroll Down ► Forum Width ► Change to a larger number with % sign. I prefer 98% xD

Hello,

Please try adding the following code to your CSS...

Code:
table.three-col td .forumline {
width : 95% !important;
}

Where would you like me to add it if it needs to be in a specific place?

Here is my CSS:

Code:

body
{
background-color: #000000;
background-repeat: repeat-y;
background-position: top center;
}

.bodylinewidth
{
max-width: 900px;
}

#page-body
{
max-width: 900px;
margin: auto;
}

.forumline
{
background-color: #333333;
padding: 4px;
border-radius: 10px;
-moz-border-radius: 10px;
margin-bottom: 5px;
}

td
{
-moz-border-radius: 4px;
border-radius: 4px;
}



EDIT: Inability to read code unless it is all together - I scrunched it up and found out that changing the 900 pix to 1000 makes the forum a lot easier to see! However, it ends up getting bigger than the background.

You can add the code at the end of all other codes.

My users reported that did nothing.
So I changed the width from the css code above from 900 to 1000 which seems to have worked Smile

Just a thing I have to point out:

http://www.thedungeons.info/forum.htm

For that site, the background is visible. The line is completely around the forum.

For mine

http://naruto-role-play-rpg.forumotion.com/forum.htm

I have a HUGE black space between the forum itself and the yellow Border!

It's a browser issue too.
Firefox can't see it and neither can internet explorer (apparently) but Safari and mabye others can.

Well, it looks fine to me in Firefox.

If you want the background to be visible, you can make the black part slightly transparent with this code...

Code:
.bodyline {
background : rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
}

or if you want it to be completely gone, use this code...

Code:
.bodyline {
background : transparent;
}

The forum categories do not have round colours, it is merely a grey border around them. (Colours in admin panel)

Ankillen: My members didn't like that xD
I guess the main problem I have is that I need to somehow stretch out the background because the forum seems to have been fixed, I no longer see the issue on other browsers.
