Solved Some aesthetic flaws in my forum.

Post by AAAAAZAW on April 11th 2011, 4:49 am

So here are my dilemmas.


My first problem is trivial, I don't remember how I changed the thing that lets you choose how many characters can be displayed in the "Last Posts" cell on the homepage. I remember that I've set it to 16 characters, I want to increase it but I can't find the option anymore on the admin panel haha. (curved red line in the picture)

The second problem is related to the Topics/Posts cell on the homepage. As you can see numbers are not centered and I don't like it. I've tried using PunBB and other forum styles, they all looked different from eachother and some of them were centered. Is there a way, maybe from the CSS source, to change this for every cell? (red circle in the picture)

The third problem afflicts the navigation bar in the homepage. For some reason, when I'm logged out of the forum, the bars are alligned to the right, and when I'm logged in they are located on the center. How can I apply the central alignment for both the cases? (Ok=central alignment, Not ok=right alignment in the picture)

Thanks in advance, and if you need further infos just ask and I will provide them.

Hi, for your title length question, please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Structure and hierarchy (on the left, under Homepage)
4. Change the number for "Title length of the last topic on index"

For your topics and posts columns, you will need to add this to your CSS code:

Code:
table.ipbtable td {
    padding: 5px;
    vertical-align: inherit;
}

For the navigation bar, have you centred it in the administration panel? You can check by going to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Headers & Navigation (on the left, under Homepage)
4. Select "Menu position : Center"

Smile

Regards,

Base

You sir are awesome.

Number one and two are solved, but I'm still experiencing problems with the nav bar. I've tried with the left/center/right alignment, but now the buttons stay always on the right when I'm logged in or logged out! Can it be a fault of the installed skin? More CSS knowledge is required here I think!
Gratz for your 1666th post :wouhou:

Thank you. Wink

Okay, for your navigation bar please add this to your CSS code:

Code:
#submenu ul {
    list-style: none outside none;
    text-align: center;
}
