Last Posts customization

Post by yjosephh on July 28th 2011, 6:11 am



As you can see, my forum's Last Posts shows up like the picture on the right on a PHPBB3 forum. Honestly, I'm really not too fond of it because all of the information is the same font/size and it looks unorganized. I want to change it up a bit, and maybe try to customize it so it looks like another forum I know of that doesn't use Forumotion, which is the forum on the left. It's neatly organized, and I was wondering if it was possible to make my forum look like the forum on the left as much as possible using CSS code.. just the Last Posts structure. I don't like how this forums' last posts section is organized and if I could change it I would.

If it's not possible, are there any CSS codes that moderate the size, font, and stuff like that of each element of the Last Posts section? The title of the post, the date and poster's name? If I can acquire the CSS codes for those, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks for everything!

Here's a phpBB3 test board of mine:

http://ddx4.forumotion.com

If the homepage last-post display on that board is the type you're looking for, then you need javascript and not CSS. This would make a good tutorial, so if I write one I'll post a link to it in this topic.

Go for the tutorial - it would help a lot of people Smile

The look of it is CSS, though. It just isn't displaying the "topic".

Thanks dion! I'll make sure to check it out if you finish it. Your test board is actually the way I want it so it'd be a huge help to my forums. Thanks a lot!

Many of the things you see on that test board are described in tutorials I've written. For example, the tutorial for removing the topics/posts columns can be found here:

I've already decided to write the tutorial for re-arranging the Last Posts column on the homepage. Now to find some time to actually do it!
