Forums overall width....

Postby Frank_Cox » August 12th, 2012, 12:17 pm

so, I have been wanting to do a refit on the width of the forums. Right now they are full screen width and change to the size of your screen. I have been wanting to make them a little narrower and 1000px wide at the most. those with smaller screens the site would appear the same. here is a link to a site I built for a freind of mine recently that has the set up I am talking about....
check this site out
Let me know what you think and I will consider this further....
Please leave a comment here! Let me know your thoughts!

I just noticed I had a typo in the first option. I said "Wider" and I meant to say "Narrower"
I fixed the typo and I think you can change your vote if you decide to

I'm with Rick - makes no difference to me.


Nothing I like more than to kick back with a Zima and a Virgina Slim reading 50 Shades of Grey with DCman (The Czar).

Either or is fine. You decide, OB1, that is why you get the big bucks! :P


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.

I was considering just flipping the monitor on its side ... at least some of DC's humor would make better sense that way :D


If it can't be smoked .... try frying it. It that don't work, it's probably best just left alone
