    6/18/12

    - Add link to forum at bottom of thread between previous/next threads links
    - Move page links for threads to right side of thread title on forum pages and search results if possible
    - Fix tractor info on profile block (overflow)

    - Add quick nav to search results pages
    - Reduce white space on main index when forums are minimized so that it's a tight list of rows like old forum.
    - Fix right column where ad displays so that if no ad is there, the content fills that space instead of a blank white space.

    i no longer have "quick reply box" at bottom of a thread page. *frowns*. it comes in nice, vs having to load up another page. only time most folks need to use "advance" editor / full editor is to attach images. is removing quick reply from bottom of thread pages, less bandwidth heavy? vs forcing folks to go to the advance editor page to make a reply?


    some problems, viewing.....
    Looking to buy older...but what tractor?

    look at "sound guy" posts 19, 21. his "tractor" data in left column under his username. overflows into the area that has text from his reply to the thread. and makes a line partially un-readable.

    not picking on sound guy, due to some other folks are most likely are having same problem.

    Thanks Muhammad. The background color change makes it much easier to read.

    To-do list:

    - Get rid of white space above signatures
    - Fix reply to thread button on bottom (not working for some)
    - Remove tractor info from profile block (old forum didn't have this)
    Here are the CSS fixes for the 1st two:

    "Reply" button not working:

    .below_postlist .pagination_bottom {
    width: auto;
    }

    Someone went a little crazy with the "width: 100%;" entries, they are everywhere and only rarely needed (mostly on containers). It is disastrous when floating things.

    Sig white space fix:

    .postbitlegacy .postrow.has_after_content {
    padding-bottom: 0em;
    }

    I'll send the bill

    As to the tractor info, I love it being there. That area is wasted space anyhow.

    Try this:

    .postbitlegacy dl.userinfo_extra dt, .postbitlegacy dl.user_rep dt {
    clear: right;
    }

    .postbitlegacy dl.userinfo_extra dd, .postbitlegacy dl.userinfo_extra dd a, .postbitlegacy dl.user_rep dd {
    float: right;
    width: 109px; /* 1px buffer, just in case IE sucks as usual */
    }

    PS: Reply button is working, now.
