Ok I'm going to ask again. Can anything be done for those of us forumming on Chrome on android?

This bright blue is really making my head hurt.

I honestly don't know. I dont have an android so cant tell. I'd guess that on a mobile, a different stylesheet gets loaded.

You'd need to have stylish addon for the mobile i guess. Dunno...sorry :(

Where are you seeing that icon? Thought i'd got all of the pesky things :lol: :mad:


I think

Code: Select all

ul.topiclist.topics .sticky_read

just found this on the User Control Panel page

it's not of major importance with it not being on the main thread page, but when i'm looking for my bookmarks it's a bit off-putting

Can I refer you to my previous post?

Is this how it looks for everyone with the user info above rather than on the left?

Can I change it? :toppa:

Think you have to make your window wider.

Which leads me to my question, is there anyway of fixing the view when the window is shrunk?

The 'View Your Posts' function [thanks Seaside] seems to be working intermittently, in that at times it will only show one post, at other times it works fine.

I'm assuming this is nothing to do with the code and is a problem at forum level? :(

Edit: Sorry read it wrong. You dont get add ons in Chrome for phones and tablets I dont think. Given you're very niche then I dont think anyone cares :p

Its actually a happy medium between the Old and new Forum. It's better than the old one

Also, the new forum looks really good on phones, so you're probably being overly picky.

Think the spoiler box needs more padding, like the quote box. Text is pushed right up against the border.

Bit of a finicky request I know :lol:

One last change to make the bookmarks page load the menu & friends list on the left when in a smaller window and it'll be perfect for me :nod:

Unless I'm mistaken, the only thing missing for me is the ability to see a difference between threads you have/haven't contributed to. That black dot on the paper icon

Replace what you put in earlier with this, it includes both now :thumbup:

Code: Select all

@media screen and (min-width: 700px) and (max-width: 1176px) {
.postbody {
  width: 80% !important;
}

#cp-main {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 80%;
}

#cp-menu {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 19%;
}
}

I did ask for peoples opinions on this earlier as to what I can put in front on threads that we had contributed to..cant be an icon as i cant upload one to their library, it can be a symbol/full stop / break bar / star (anything I can write on a keyboard)

Fabulous thanks :toppa:

I wasn't happy with the blank space still loading on the left though, so have decided just to hide the menu bit altogether, so replaced this section with:

Code: Select all

#cp-menu {
  display: none;
}


Thanking you - i am happy :thumbup: :o

So the only real thing left is icons to show what threads we've posted in?

Trigger - how do you make the thread titles in the script a little larger and bold please. :thumbup:

As the thread topics look less pronounced since the bells were removed. :?

On line 221 you will see this

Code: Select all

ul.topiclist.topics a.topictitle {
        font-size: 1.1em;
    }


Change it up by .1's until you are happy. They are already bold

If anyone wants to replace the little icons to the left with the old bells, add this to your code :smug:

Code: Select all

     /**** GET THE BELLS BACK ****/
     
     .imageset.icon_topic_newest {
         background-image: url("http://s24.postimg.org/9hykzxb2p/bell.png");

         padding-top: 14px;
    }
