Please REMOVE the width on the site!!

Postby Jynks on Fri Feb 20, 2009 3:35 am

This new site in phpbb3 has a set width.. and it is terrible.. Almost every single thread is unreadable. As screenshots and all the like are cut off, the text is cramped... it is upsetting!!

All you need to do is edit the overaLL header to remove teh fixed width ot somthign liek 85% or so.... That way the site will scale to the width of teh broswer on you screen.

screenies look fine when one uses thumbs or attachments. attachments "hover." it's really cool. at first I was taken back, but now...I think I really like it.

that said, I would rather define columns by percent too. there's a lot of wasted space. I'd have said 90%. you only need a little flavor of the black/space around the edges.

here's my question though: wasn't the sfdd default theme also fixed with prior to the upgrade? I'm pretty sure it was.

Well i like the theme i just hate how it is so squished up...

I mean yo ucan not even see the entire screenshots as posted by people... you can not even see the entire NFO in some cases....

Here is a screenshot of how it looks....

Image

Note teh length of the post... + the way the screenshots do not fit + the way that the NFo is all squished.

(I added a screenshot of how teh screenshots are ment ot look at the bottom)

NOTER there are no slide bars.. so when the screenshots are to big (witch is all screenshots btw) you can not even scroll the post so you can see the entire shot
