I don't know what happened but it's working now.

I was messing around with the quick mod tools and hit the wrench and noticed there was an option now for moving the profile.

So I disabled the extension, re-enabled and purged the cache and now they are all on the left again.

Excellent! :D

Please describe your problem. Profile Side Switcher has moved the avatars back onto the left, as they were prior to the 3.1.2 upgrade.

As before, I'd like to move the margins next to the avatars closer in, but only on the main board, not in the PM section where it is fine.

You need to ask in the discussion/support forum for your extension or wherever you got it. For style issues you need to post in the 3.1.x Styles Forums.

That's strange, I thought I posted the margin issue as it's own new thread.

Last time I moved the profiles to the left I did it via changes to the code, which is what I'm hoping to do now, I don't think the extension or style people can help on this one, it's something in PHPBB I am looking to change, hopefully a fairly simple are where I can adjust a number to move the margin?

the whole point of 3.1 is that you do not have to edit the core code to make changes. that is what the extensions are for. the profilesideswitcher extension has worked perfectly on every board I have installed it on so far. and according to this: http://vvforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6372 it is working perfectly on your board as well. I see the profile on the left.

you need to purge the cache and refresh your browser if you are not seeing the profile on the left.

Sorry, as I wrote above, Profile Side Switcher is working now, I"m not sure how, but it is and that's good.

When I moved them over to the left manually after the last big upgrade I also moved the margin closer to the profile, as ideally that's what I'd like, there more space than I like the look of.

What I want to do is move the margin closer to the avatar, which is what I achieved previously through code manipulation.

I don't, however, want to effect the margins in the PM section, just the main board.

Is this still possible?

try this;

ext/tatiana5/ProfileSideSwitcher/styles/prosilver/theme/profile_side_switcher.css

look for:

Code: Select all

/* Mini profiles on the left */
.leftsided div.postbody {
	float: right;
	width: 79%;
}
.leftsided .postprofile {
	float: left;
	width: 20%;
	border-left: none;
	border-right: 1px solid #FFF;
}
change the widths to whatever you want as long as the total is 99%
I tried 84% and 15% and it looked better.

luck,
robert

Appreciate this extension and it works as advertised. :D I really like the option for members to choose which side they want the profiles.

I did see one thing when the profile was shifted to left. The icon that says online is horizontal rather than at an angle. (see pic) Is that intentional or a minor tweak that still needs to happen.

using a fresh install of 3.1.2 on a local board.

it is vertical not horizontal and I believe it is intentional. it takes up far less room being vertical that it would if it was angled like in prosilver.
