Well, On this page itself you see the forum to be fitting nicely in the 800x600 browser page. I want to show the right blocks on this page of the forum where you see the actual post text. But my problem is that when i do that, the view goes beyond the width of 800x600 browser and the bottom scroll bar appears. So i want to alter the width of the viewtopic table to fit in. I tried several variavles in viewtopic php and tpl files but nothing helped. Please tell me what variable to tweak to alter the table size.

Thanks for the prompt response above.

The problem is not with just the viewtopic. Your forums will stretch the page no matter what you do as long as you are showing both the right and left blocks. The forum will fit perfectly if you remove the right blocks.. In order to get a forum that will fit your theme without the stretching you would have to find a forum that is designed for a smaller width. I have never seen one. Everyfile of the forum would have to be adjusted to use it as is. That would be very time intensive. The images themselves might need to be modified if the are all not repeating. I will see if anyone else i know might have some ideas for you. I hope that you understand what i am saying. Good luck to you Razz

I'm curious, what's the adjustment done to prevent forums from going off into neverland on your screen when someone either posts an out of bound quote, copy of code, etc..

I've noticed that this site prevents that by wrapping the text so it doesn't go off the screen. How is that accomplished exactly?

I've searched the forum by wrap text, etc... and can't find any mention of it, so I'm sorry if this has been asked before.

Thanks

Unfortunately that is the way HTML works.

What exactly are you trying to edit? You should start with the overall_header.tpl file

Sorry, il be more specific...
I run a clan website, Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! when you click on Forums in the menu, it displayes the forum index as the module, at a tidy size but i would like to make the forum index slightly wider on the page, also on some posts the page is very stretched and i need to use the bottom scroll bar, and on others its at a perfect size.. I have played about with overall header file, and the most i can do with regards to making the forum index wider is.. Make it wider inside the table, in php nuke.. I was wondering if it might have something to do with the php nuke module part of it? PS Thanks for a fast reply Regards, Jay.

It looks like the only real width that is being controlled is in your theme header
Code:


<table class="bodyline" width="80%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">


The other widths are set to 100% or they are the block width (width=170)
Changing the above width to 100% will expand to the width of the user's window.

Your theme header - usually header.html or theme.php
