Solved The size of the border to the left of the main pages

Post by zathrus Mon Dec 28, 2015 2:57 pm

Hi.

As the "admin" for rippedoffbritain.forumotion.net forum I cannot find how to make the main entry pages broader and the left border narrower.

I feel that there is a lot of wasted space in the left-hand border of the main pages which makes less room for text etc' in the main written area.

How do I shift the border line over to the left a bit ?

If it needs CSS code, can this be supplied ?

Hope this is clear.

Please just go to my website here: http://rippedoffbritain.forumotion.net/forum

Then choose a subforum.

Then open a topic, and it is in these pages that I want to move the left hand border over a bit.

I do not see a border on the left side.  Please post a screenshot with what you want to move.

Are you referring to the profile in a message?

I am not able to send a screenshot !

If you please, just go to my website here: http://rippedoffbritain.forumotion.net/forum

Then choose a sub-forum from the five choices.

Then open any topic in that sub-forum, and it is in these pages that I want to move the left hand border divider over a bit.

If you do these things, which should be easy, and is available to non-members, you should be able to find a page where there is a section to the right that is for written replies and images etc' and this is divided by a vertical line from the section of the page that holds the avatars, and other information, etc'. ( This should be a fairly narrow section but it presently takes up more than a third of the whole page-width ).

All I want to do is to give the written section more width and the avatar, info' etc' section less width.

Please remember that I am quite a newbie at this and try to use as little tech-jargon as possible.

I have tried this request a number of times on Forum of the Forums and have yet to get a simple but definitive answer. ( as admin' I do have access to the administration pages and the ability to enter or change CSS code if required ).

Regards.

I tought this was an option you could edit in the admin panel, but I can not find it so then it needs to be done with css.

You can find the css under display > images and colors > colors > cascading style sheet

You can change the '10em' to another value to make it as width as you want.

Code:

.post-container {
  margin-left: 10em;
}
.postprofile {
  margin-left: -10em;
  width: 10em;
}

Thanks for that. It worked wonderfully well.

I do think that 10em might be a bit narrow for the left hand column though.

Now that I know the code I could change the "10em" value to more or less.

Now I can click on the "solved" button.

Many best regards
