I'm working on getting the forum back to its former glory so I need a wee bit of help [-o<
If you notice any bugs or errors please let me know in this thread, I'm fairly new to php so it is entirely likely that I have missed something.

[edit] I know that the logo is missing and a few icons :lol:

Cheers in advance!

You've done a great job Marc, well done. =D>

I've spotted a couple of things, not bugs exactly, just old code. The Fix link needs to be deleted. It now takes us to a life coach website... And the 'text size' icons (the As in the top right corner) don't affect this page unsurprisingly but take us away from the forum to view the website accessibility. Very minor things. Fact that you got the... what's it called again, that top bit?... back again is fantastic, and I know what a chore that must've been.

On Safari (don't know about other browsers) the forum never quite fits in the window, no matter how big I make the window. Does anybody else see that?

Thanks Andy, I'll hopefully have them sorted this evening or tomorrow. I probably just have to change a function or two. And the Navbar (that bit up top :wink: ) was murder lol

The sizing issue seems to be across the board, well chrome & firefox at any rate. Anyone know if it's the same on IE or Opera?

Text size should be easy to sort from what I've seen. I'll do it once I am home.

Thanks Pete, it must be something small that I have missed then.

Marc, looks most likely to be a problem with margins/padding somewhere in that top banner. I see a couple of elements have a 20px pad on the left. Perhaps an inherited width of 100% but with added margins/padding throwing it out beyond the browser window size? Can't quite pin it down at the moment though.

cheers, Mike

Just a suggestion Marc: try assigning
margin-right: -20px
to
#primary_nav h1

cheers,
Mike

Mike, you win one half of my promised Ferrari :lol: seems to have been a case of 'forest for the trees'. Should be easy to fix. Thank you!

Actually, no, that doesn't work at all! The problem is being caused by this code for #primary_nav:
Code:
   /*To compensate for right page margin hack.*/
   margin: 0px -20px 0px 0px;

I can't see why that negative margin hack is there, but setting the body element with
Code:
   padding-right: 20px;

corrects the problem, though it also seems to knock the main table off-centre.

Just removing the negative margin and leaving all margins for #primary_nav set to 0 seems to get a good result, at least for me.

Anyway, hope that gives some useful pointers. CSS can be a nightmare!

cheers, Mike.

Seems sorted to me. I had it already on -20px so I've set it to 0px. Fixed for everyone or just me?

Thanks again Mike :D

No worries Marc. Re: the Ferrari, I'll settle for just the tyres if you like, as they're probably worth more than my Toyota Yaris. :wink:
