Solved Condensing the Post Profile?

Post by Testicles_the_Greek on August 23rd 2011, 1:24 pm

http://www.englistory.com

I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to get rid of the Post count and 'From/location' lines below the avatar, visible when viewing the forum? I'd ideally like a more condensed website page to scroll down?

Or at least move them slightly to the right of the avatar? They take up alot of space when only one short post is made.

As a guest viewing the visible forums, this seems solved already, but when logged in, they appear below the avatar?

Thanks

For the post numbers and location disableing in posts go to AP > Users and grups > Profiles > Location/Post field > Edit it Edit and make it's settings there. Have it display where you wont or not to display at all.

I can not see the 'mistake' as a guest so can not tell you what to move there but you can add this to CSS and move it (deta under avatar) with margins where ever you want

Code:
.pun .user .user-info {
margin-left: -20px;
}

Hope that was what you were looking for. If not, ask again : )

Thanks, Nera for the first bit.

Here's what I mean, Nera, shows up only when logged in. If I choose to display them, how do I compress or move the ringed sections via the CSS?

Thanks

Anyone please advise? I tried that code, Nera, and it simply shifts the word 'Posts' further left offscreen (reading visibly as "sts"), and not condensing it (and the 'From' section) beneath the avatar, or to the right of it.

If I can't find a way of either compressing the ringed data (and rank) or moving them to the right of the avatar so that small posts of one sentence don't take acres of space up below the avatar, then I'll probably just get rid.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay, when you say compress that means make them more together?

You should have something like this in CSS

Code:
.pun .user .user-info {
    color: #666666;
    line-height: 1.8em;
}

Lower the line height number to compress it.

Thanks Nera, I input that and even reduced it to '1.0' but it did nothing?

Is there a way to get the User data to the right of the avatar, in the 'empty space' margin?

Ah, excellent, Nera!! Thanks.

Will this also work if I add ranks, too?

And what of the signatures, if I add them again?

Brilliant step, though! :wouhou:

Should, try it, than we'll see. Not sure what is the problems with sigs? You can put a limit size for them so they'll get resized it they are too big. Is that what you want?

No, it's the annoying space between the bottom of a post and the actual signature beneath- it seems that sigs remain at the level of the 'From' line even when a small post has been made?

If large posts are made, I expect the sig to be pushed further down the page to accomodate the text, but not when only a few words are posted?

That space is there depending on your profile details not words. Lowering avatar height and any extras bellow profiles would help to lower it if you are refering on the space below what is written in a post and the signature.

Probably it would be removed totally if you would position your profile horizontaly on top of your posts.

You cured the from/post compression issue (thanks), but since I've resized the avatars, the details still don't move 'up to' the newly-resized avatar (pic).

Also, how would I make the profile 'horizontal'?

Hi,

Go to your viewtopic_body template and find this part

Code:
{postrow.displayed.POST_DATE_NEW}
                        </h2>
                    </div>
And after it all up to this
Code:
<div class="post-entry">
                            <div class="entry-content">

Delete what is found beetween those two codes. Not the codes I posted here but what is beetween it.

And add this beetween.

Code:
<table width="100%" style="border-bottom: 1px solid #c3dab5;background: #fff url('linktreceslike') bottom repeat-x;"><tr><td width="100px;" style="margin-left: 10px;">{postrow.displayed.POSTER_AVATAR}</td>
<td><div class="user-ident">
                                <h4 class="username">{postrow.displayed.POSTER_NAME}</h4>
                               
                            </div>{postrow.displayed.ONLINE_IMG}<br /{postrow.displayed.POSTER_RANK_NEW}<br />{postrow.displayed.RANK_IMAGE}</td><td style="float: right;"><div class="user-info">
                               
                                <!-- BEGIN profile_field -->
                                {postrow.displayed.profile_field.LABEL}{postrow.displayed.profile_field.CONTENT}{postrow.displayed.profile_field.SEPARATOR}
                                <!-- END profile_field -->
                                {postrow.displayed.POSTER_RPG}
                            </div></td></tr></table>
                    <div class="postbody"{postrow.displayed.THANK_BGCOLOR}>

Try it on a preview mode first since I can't see any of your topics so can't see will it turn out right away. Be carefull with templates.

Hi Nera, thanks- this is how it looks.


Is there a way to change;-

The left blank margin width where the avatar was before?
The new avatar background header colour?
The 'post' and 'from' info to the left (if desired?)?

Thanks for all of your great help so far!! Cool

Go to AP > General > Forum configuration > Profile position and set it to Right.

And than try adding this to CSS
Code:
.pun .postmain {
    width: 100%;
}
.pun .user-ident .username {
    position: relative;
}
.postfoot {
    padding: 5px 0;
    width: 100%;
}

Hi Nera and thanks alot for your reply, but it just didn't go to plan and looked unsightly (the profile jutted out to the right beyond the screen, etc)

I have chosen to revert back to the earlier state of the reduced avatar (a few posts above)- but with that 'compressed info' gap beneath again!!


I would like;

The Profile info to compress right up to the avatar (and how would adding a signature facility affect this?)
The post margin to shift to the left nearer to the file Profile info/avatar? (I can reduce the button size underneath)


Thanks a million.
