style search - user details at top of posts

Post by scotty1999 » Sat May 13, 2006 1:02 am

Hi,

i'm running a photography forum and i'm finding that the space taken up by the member info on the left hand side of each post could be better used for widening the space available for posting images.

Does anyone know of a theme or style that would either minimise this area or have the member info at the top of each post rather than the side.

cheers,

It will be in your viewtopic_body.tpl file.
Open it and search for something like this:

Code: Select all

<th class="thLeft" width="150" height="26" nowrap="nowrap">{L_AUTHOR}</th>
It should have {L_AUTHOR} in there if there is a width specified like width="150" that is the width you can change. I am not familiar with the template you are using and I am unable to download new templates.

MorpheusX has the option of top or side poster info.

You might also have to install the extreme styles MOD but that only requires some file uploads and is very useful anyway.
