Wider Forum?

Post by cott2e4c on August 15th 2010, 8:24 am

Well my forum is centered in the middle of the background image so it only takes up about 70% of the screen. How do i make it wider? If its in the css what is the code i should look for? I would like it as wide as this forum. (the sides on this forum arnt that big)

To put it simple i just want to make my forum wider. The forum, not the background image behind it.

This is easily fixed. Go to the Admin Panel>General>Configuration. Scroll down to Pages Structure & set the width you want for your forum. Mine is set at 95%. No CSS needed.

That is strange. I have had absolutely no problems, at all, with this using both phpBB2 & 3. Sorry that this is of no help you. Don't know any CSS, unfortunately.

Hello,

To adjust width in Invision, you can use this CSS code...

Code:
#ipbwrapper {
width : 800px;
}

If it doesn't solve your problem, please provide a link to your forum.

i tried this. It only makes some parts of the forum wider , such as the categories. But not the back layer or any thing else
