News from Bicycles Network Australia and the Australian Cycling Forums
It would be nice to have the new look with the avatars, etc on the LHS. I can't stand the old look now so I'm living with the new layout (in shades of grey rather than blue).
2011ish Avanti Quantum (DIY), 2010 Specialized Tricross, 2010 Salsa Casseroll
I agree - my long term goal is to use this style though adjust it with the avatar positioning, improve the usability (so that it is easier to browse and distinguish between topics) plus a few custom graphics. I would set this as the default style - though still allow other custom versions.
Re the fixed width - not intentional - rather this is the standard version.
The three available options are safe bets - not too wild on the colours and a reliable - when people go out and make custom versions - you never know how clean the code it. For now - I think this is a good solution that will suit most people.
FYI my search for a model of bike is being rejected. Posting because I think search was upgraded with the forums.
One more vote for preferring the avatar on the left so am currently using subsilver2. (But otherwise I am not a huge fan.)
I like the overall style of prosilver Special Edition except for the fixed width and RHS avatar. prosilver Special Edition with LHS avatar and variable width would be great.
When using the display styles with fixed width, part of oversized images will be hidden.
One quick work around for windows environment is to hold down the Ctrl key while mouse wheeling to change your screen display size.
In Firefox I now just right click and select show image. That blows the image up to full size.
Please try it chanboy. Whatever the technical term, it shows the whole image. And yes, it makes the text smaller, but it's easy for me 'cause I always have one hand on my mouse.
That, apparently, depends (probably mainly on your browser). For me it simply scales down the cropped image along with the text size.
Having to do anything to view an image that should just be automatically scaled to fit screen width seems pretty clunky and circa-1980s to me, so I'm just going back to one of the variable-width templates. (Please note this is in no way a criticism of Christopher or the forum; it's just a 'feature' of the particular template )
Edit - definitely some browser-specific issues with this template - oversize images display very differently in IE6...
Yeah the pics are re-sizing in IE7, but not in Google Chrome. (bah, Google Chrome is hardly a browser anyway... except that its the fastest by a country mile... who cares if it actually works right? LOL)
So yeah, seems to work in some browsers...
but the correct solution is to size the pics correctly and set the width of the forum to variable.
YES - well said. I individually resize each image I post because I know that it helps. Also - it saves on bandwidth - often 400 pixels (wide) is plenty to see an image.
