Cyl, any suggestions how I fix this page? What table codes have you added?

I hope to god that's generated and not typed :D

new format (phpBB3 is a bit fussier about closing tabs) is:

Code: Select all

[table]
[row][col]cell 1[/col][col]cell 2[/col][col]cell 3[/col][/row]
[row][col]cell 4[/col][col]cell 5[/col][col]cell 6[/col][/row]
[/table]
cell 1cell 2cell 3
cell 4cell 5cell 6
there's also a tablewide that makes an auto-width table
cell 1cell 2cell 3
cell 4cell 5cell 6

It's generated. :) Updated. Still it doesn't look pretty without cell borders/spacing. And why is there a huge empty area above each table?

That's the trouble with it, if you put line-breaks between the cells (outside the cell) then they all get lumped above the table (standard HTML rendering aparently)

so
<tr>
<td>hello</td>
<td>hello</td>
</tr>

becomes

<tr><br /><br />
<td>hello</td><br /><br />
<td>hello</td><br /><br />
</tr>

And that get screwed up. Take out all the line-breaks in the table and the space will go away. I can create an alternative table tag that will show borders and stuff if you like.

Any chance you can change the skin to something else? Or add a personal option to do so?

I have terrible trouble with having avatars on the right side and even worse trouble (read - forum is unreadable for me) because every post within every thread is in different, alternating color (+ it's the same color within one post, so no visual as to where post starts and where it ends).

Does anyone else have trouble with readability? :o

Skins are being developed ;)

Not sure what you mean by the alternating colours. On my screen alternating posts do alternate colour.

Exactly that. To me that's very distracting. Is it possible to eliminate that within one skin? [-o<

But then every post would run together, and you'd not be able to tell when one person's reply ended and the next began. CHAOS! END OF TIME! THAT WAY LIES DESOLATION!

It's the way it's always been tbh, alternate posts have to alternate in colour, otherwise it's too confusing. You could use an old CRT monitor and turn the colour right down, then they'll just look slightly different shades of grey ;)

Can I have a custommade skin that makes my text color legendary-orange and my background epic-purple?

Love the new look, nice one Cyl! Hope it's not too much of a headache to pull off. There's a beer waiting for you in Leiden come March, can't think of a more righteous way of saying "thank you for all the effort, mate".
