Solved Stretched Out Navigation Bar

Post by Xandra on Fri 17 Sep - 21:01

So, I've been fiddling around in the admin control panel for hours trying to figure out why the nice, crisp navigation bar that appears in the preview of the layout I chose looks so nice in the preview, but looks like unreadable, squished, stretched-out blah on the actual page. I even linked a friend, who runs off a completely different browser and OS, to see if it was squished to her too, and it is.

Screenshot of the layout preview:

I've tried just about everything I can think of. Help?

Any new codes added on your forum? Or maybe it's just your screen resolution? A link to your forum would help.

http://btnotebook.forum-motion.com/forum.htm That'd be the forum. Nothing at all there yet and won't be for a while, but the navigation bar is extremely distracting.

I haven't added anything there yet, and I know nothing of coding, though I'm sure it's probably something to do with a code. It's been like that from the second I chose that layout, and no amount of tweaking makes it better.

It isn't my screen resolution, either. I've changed it several times to check, and it still looks stretched on any other setting. I work off Windows 7 in Firefox, and I sent the link to my friend, who works off a Mac in Safari and both of us see a distorted, unreadable nav bar. Even attempting to copy and replace the images for the buttons didn't fix it, deleting the title didn't fix it, and removing the header graphic didn't fix it. Something else is causing it to be squished.

And it's aggravating. TT

Try reinstalling the skin.

All right, I sort of figured out what was going on. After I changed from one HitSkin (velvet surface) to the simple gray one (stylized darkelf EN), it glitched and somehow held onto some of the design details from the first one, making the box backgrounds and the navigation bar shape stay the same as the velvet layout while changing everything else. I thumbed through a bunch of others and found that those two features still stayed the same, no matter the skin I chose.

I finally set the version to phpBB3, then back to BB2 and it seemed to clear whatever the problem was. It's now displaying properly.
