Much better :thumbup: Now I just need to find a way to get this working on a machine in the work. Does anyone know if this and addons like this stylish are compatible with portable chrome?? :toppa:

Another :toppa: & :adore: to those who have helped sort this absolute clusterfuck out.

Question: This is probably pretty straight forward but I've got the view your posts and bookmarks back over on the right now,
can I remove bookmarks so I just have view your posts?

What exactly do I need to delete from the code to do that?

Looks miles better right now. Now if only this could be done on my phone which still looks gash

Actually, is there anyway to get the post over a bit more right like it used to be, seems odd having it under my username & stats.

And having the words edit, quote, etc underneath instead of icons?

Just for computers where you can install Stylish unfortunately. iPads are pretty stuck with how it is :thumbdown:

This is the code I wrote for Oogy earlier, try adding this to the bottom, INSIDE of the last one of these "}"

Code: Select all

Nah, no need for you to make changes.
I'll just upload them somewhere else myself and keep the urls updated with different links.
I already make a few colour tweaks to your style anyway so I'm used to updating it then editing the colours :toppa:

Decided it looks like there wasn't going to be any changes to the 'new' forum in the near future so went ahead and installed this.

Very glad I did. Looks much better. Not perfect, but miles better than the shite we had before.

If you'd looked up a few posts you'd have seen this, it may or may not help, but paste it in and give it a go :thumbup:

You have stylish installed yep? You then just click on the stylish icon and click "find more styles for this site"...

It then takes you to the list of styles, and mine is the top one. Click install next to it? I've never seen it ask for a name before... :?

In View Your Posts, is it right that there is only one page? I realise that there have been a few issues with this page, but is this going to be the case going forward that we can only view one page of our post history?

You could reduce that "min-width; 700px;" to 500 or so, see if that helps.....
