View Full Version : Question: Fixed width styles?

I didn't write the problem properly, so I'm updating this with attached images.

How do you read threads when your monitors are wide screen, example thread:

My settings:

Old post:
Most of the forum styles I am using somehow don't really work with the fixed-width settings. This is really annoying me.
I thought maybe someone could provide me a list of those that support fixed-width?

and a suggestion: Please change the styles or at least the new ones to support this. I think most of the people should have large eidescreen monitors and it's just not easy to read a forum like that.

Go to 'Options' in your user CP and find 'Forum Style display mode' under 'Miscellaneous Options'.

Set it to Fluid-width.

Hope this helps.

Some styles aren't designed like that. What I mean by that is, the developer of the style may not have implemented the option to switch it to a fixed width. There is something you can do, though! Fluid width styles (which is what Top Dog is) have the ability to change width depending on the window size. Hit the middle button on the top right hand side and resize the window to change the width of the style.

At the moment I use the split wondow feature in Win 7, dragging the window to the right or left.

If there is some sort of a list or something of themes that I can use, that should be helpful.
