    Forums Screen

    May I suggest, as a user, to reduce the "white" space that exists in the first column listing the subjects.

    I have to *really* move my eyes when reading a raw. From left, then the loooong white space and then the Threads, Posts and Last post.

    Perhaps to shrink the wide column and then centralizing the table (?) on the page?

    Thanks for any thought. -Tivoli0

    What stylesheet do you use? Which browser? Could you take a screenshot of what you see? I only ask, because I have very little space between everything....

    It appears you are using the "Old Style" skin for the Lounge which is the default style for new loungers. I agree that it does have quite a bright contrast. Have you thought of changing your Lounge Skin, you can view the gallery by clicking on the Quick Skin Switch link at the top of the page

    I think it's just because the table is set to the maximum width, and the forum names are fairly short. One client-end solution is just to make your browser window a bit smaller, but I agree that centralizing the table would probably be a better all round solution. However I quite like the consistency that the full-width table has with the rest of the Lounge.

    An alternative to try is looking at your favourite forums on the Controls page; this table contains more columns, and therefore less white space. Being a bit of a <img src=/S/nerd.gif border=0 alt=nerd width=20 height=21>, my Lounge personal control panel is now my brower's home page.

    (Jeremy & Jeremy, Tivoli0 is referring to the "Main Index" page - the amount of blank space in the first column).

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your suggestions. I'll experiment with the options you folks provided me with.

    This isn't likely to happen, I'm afraid. The tables are a consistent width across the various screens but there are fewer columns in the main index, so the first field looks very wide. Resizing the tables on a page by page basis would take far more programming that an all-volunteer staff could contribute. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>
