Keeping the profiles and text "fixed" on the left side?

Post by sweabsy on July 17th 2010, 10:27 pm

Hi all,

So, here is a screenshot of what the forum looks like when I have my browser on full-screen: http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/2577/maximizei.jpg

On the other hand, when I make the browser much smaller, obviously the forum is set to be fluid and adjusts accordingly: http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/4282/minimize.jpg

My question: Is it possible to have the forum set-up so that it's always going to be aligned the way it shows in the second picture? I hate having all that needless space when the browser is fully maximized...

Any/all help is greatly appreciated!

Not quite sure what you mean. Are you talking about the forum width?

Sorry for not making myself clear.

What I mean, is that in the first screenshot, you can see a whole bunch of blank space between the user profile and the beginning of their message.

However, in the second screenshot, you can see that the space has been reduced (merely because the window has been resized).

Is there a way to always have that space GONE like what we see in the second screenshot, without having to resize the browser window? (also, we want to make sure that people in lower resolutions are still able to have things show properly).

For example, this forum here: http://www.codemiles.com/phpbb3-styles/left-alignment-t3784.html

If you look at the way it is set-up, when my browser is fully maximized it has the profile/text nicely positioned without space, and that doesn't change when I begin reducing the browser window either.

I got what you mean now.. Check you avatar widths on the page, if one is bigger than the rest it will stretch it out. I am not quite sure what is going on.

No, it has nothing to do with the widths of each avatar - but I appreciate the response.

This has something to do with alignment in some way - or the 'fluid' nature of the theme, I believe...

I believe this guy is touching upon the same idea:
