Green Theme Width
June 09, 2010 01:44PM
Would it be possible/practical to edit the green theme to use a variable width instead fixed width? On widescreen monitors this would help out the reading area quite a bit. At 1900x1280 that leaves more than half the screen blank space.

I would probably be easy, just remove the max-width form the css or change it to something like none or 95%

#phorum {
font-family: Arial;
font-size: medium;
color: Black;
max-width: 900px;
margin: auto;

However, this is just my personal preference. If more people like it the way it is, a compromise could be to allow users to choose there theme if phorum has that capability.

FWIW: If you have GreaseMonkey, I created a very basic script that rewrites the max-width in the CSS.

You can also tell GreaseMonkey to apply different CSS to a page (which you can save on disk).. Phorum changes themes by changing CSS, so you can effectively use any theme you wish.

Any chance this can be revisited now?

I fear we don't have a forum admin with the required privileges these days. The forum is as it is and if it's broken, too bad.

... i've full access to the actual phorum-software, but the capabilities of the software are something limited.

My bet is, that you have to change and/or update the software on the server-level to add more options.

I've seen some options for RSS-feeds, but aven't actually 'played around' with this ... busy with some other problems (mostly the german sub-forum) and not enough time to maintain the main forum too eye rolling smiley

Yes, editing the CSS requires access to the files on the server (I've played around with Phorum a bit).

Does no one have access to the server at all anymore?

BTW: I know that both jmarsden and buzz used to have shell access to the mailing list server. AFAIK it's the same machine that hosts the website (same IP address).
