How to reduce the left and right margin ( 05:48:01 MonApr 29 2002 )

How to reduce the left and right margin in the reply/new thread screen? My board has so many emoticons and I don't want my members to scroll left and right.

Hi christy

I had a quick look at your board and although my screen resolution is only 600x800, I did not need to scroll when using the posting screen.

I believe the posting area (textarea) is a fixed width, so I don't think you could change it anyway.

If you feel the page is a little overcrowded, you could have the emoticons in a drop-down menu box instead of displaying them all. The only problem with that is that your posters might not recognise them all!

You can make that change in Board Settings >> Edit Board Settings.

Try that and see if it helps, or possible Chris could suggest something else, when he comes on later. :smile:

Another related question: the windows of the emoticon for the reply/new thread screen in my board is located at the top right hand corner down to the bottom of the message box. Thus the line spacing between posticon, username, subject and insert is large. Can this be solved? For example, allowing the emoticon windows extend downward to the end of screen?

Hm, I'm not exactly sure what you mean there. :smile:

You can move them to the left with this CSS:

Code:

.newthreadbg {text-align:left;}

(Or you should be able to, haven't tested it), but that will also move the text to the left of it to the left too.. :smile:

christy, I think the reason it's doing that is because you just have so many emoticons there. That's why I suggested it might be a good idea to have a drop down box instead (like you have for the Bbcodes).

Just try that and see if it helps - you can always put the emoticons back to display afterwards, if you don't like it. But at least we'll know if that's what's causing the big gaps you mention.
