At least for me, on the message boards the left side that shows the poster, avatar and such seems to have been over lapped slightly by the message boxes. Not a huge deal, Scott...but if you are bored.

Now, there are no more message board errors with the Avant Browser (11.5.8).

Message 3987 - Posted: 19 Nov 2007, 11:13:05 UTC

The reason for this is probably the new pushbutton style of the message boards. These buttons use a really large font, so that they become too wide for the left margin. I looked at the page source, and noticed that most (not all, add to trac, someone?) buttons have class \"btn\". So, Scott, you could add something like this to the website\'s css file (fonts and sizes just as example)

.btn {
font-family: \"Segoe UI\", Verdana;
font-size: 12px;
}

Changed all input elements to smaller fonts.

Thanks. It\'s better, but the \"Send Message\" button still doesn\'t fit in the left margin completely. Not much more you can do, I suppose. No doubt due to the standard message board layout.

It\'s better in the newer server upgrades. Adding a small white column between the avatar and text columns, for instance.

But just wait a bit more with upgrading. We\'re almost done with testing everything through Enigma@Home. :)
