It seems you don't have any topics yet visible for the logged in (or anonymous) user. Didn't think of that possibility. Fixed that just now (see Github), but usually there's at least 1 topic visible for everyone.

@Ger,

When i disbale the right sidebar, there is a big whitespace on that side.
Can you fix this? so thet whole screen will be used.
It is designed that the content (middle) part also uses the space of the right sidebar when that is disabled. It works for me. It might be overriden at some point by your board's style?
When i add an image, it is not responsive :(
Possible to fix also?
I've incorporated some simple responsiveness in the latest version (check Github). Keep in mind though that I only provide some generic styling which might clash with your board's style.
Sorry for my late comment, but what i mean is this.
On normal screen, there is no whte space, but on smaller screens, mobile for example there is a big white space. Please see screenshot.
Image
Any idea how i canmake it full width?

Can you help me make it works ? Thanks for it anyway. Using 3.2.2 prosilver a bit modified style.

Edit:
Made it happen/work!?/ but it's so broken & stylish for me atm.
So this error occurred when ACP > CMBB > Categories - the default #3 Articles is set to anything else(place in forum) but NOT disable comments. If disable comments it's working dunno. #2 News is working without problems for now.
I can make comments, always are disabled even if it's not checked if try to create a category in forum to try to add comment & see how it works inside forum(I don't see any articles in my forum) & got an error when submitting an article with category.
Add category > show in menu bar > can't see it...
ImageImage
Where are the settings btw (comments might already be disabled through category setting)?
> Tied into the phpBB breadcrumbs.
Where?

> Use the forum for article comments, a forum topic will be automatically created when posting an article.
Is it just me or I can't see them!?
What's that?
Image
I can provide more info & more specific I'm sick & sleepy these days so...

I am experience some problems by myself but still it's cool...it's always like that but with the time & some help can be fixed. I think much effort is placed for it ; )

Nice Ger! +1
Edit: Ger, is it maybe possible, to show on small devices a little snippet of the article? now you only see the title :D
Not a big problem, but it would be nice, to see 25 or 26 words after the title.

You're using the topic description extension. That conflicts with every other extension that creates topics. I've already explained how they can fix this very easily. It's up to them to do so I'd say.
So this error occurred when ACP > CMBB > Categories - the default #3 Articles is set to anything else(place in forum) but NOT disable comments. If disable comments it's working dunno. #2 News is working without problems for now.

Perhaps its because you are sick & sleepy but I can't make head nor tail of this part...

For what I understand it should work but both some style adjustments and / or other extensions seem to confict at some point. Most notably the topic descriptions. Maybe I'll figure something out to bypass this and post that as a unofficial manual fix somehow, but I don't intend to make changes to the core of cmBB to support a malformed other extension.

Not sure I understand you correctly, but I think what you mean is defined here:
https://github.com/GerB/cmbb/blob/maste ... #L415-L418

You can override this behaviour in your own style.

I've poked the author: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... 36#p614636

Like I wrote there, the easiest way is to add a default value for topic descriptions in de DB.

Nope, that would be up to the author of this un-validated extension....aka you. I gave you the code to fix it in your extension.

Sorry, but that ain't gonna happen. There is no sensible way for automatically created topics to create a meaningful description. So it would be an empty string anyway. Why would things need to be so complicated instead of just fixing it with 1 simple change in 1 extension instead of forcing everyone else to change theirs?

I highly doubt my extensions won't pass validation because "you were first" or something like that.

Well there ya go then.

Extensions are validated on their own merits and without any other extension installed. So you're saying you would rather people have issues than to fix it within your extension. Excellent. :roll:

And if I wasn't around, how would you then fix it? Assuming no one had picked up the extension. Nevermind, doesn't matter. It's clear laziness has become the mainstay as of late.

What if the world would be flat? Assuming it would still have the same mass :?

If that would be the case, the extension would have been abandoned. That's not the case, you're quite active. So I propose to fix it the way I think is most optimal. Of course, I can fix it. In multiple extensions. And many other authors in their extensions. But you can expect a next author to say "just disable that buggy topic descriptions extension". While it's not buggy at all, it can just use an improvement to make it work better with others.
Nevermind, doesn't matter. It's clear laziness has become the mainstay as of late.
Yeah, clear laziness when one investigates an issue and proposes a fix for someone else...

I'm willing to create a PR but that's useless if you are unwilling to merge it.
