    Curious Thread Display

    Not a big deal, just curious. Why does this thread display the last four posts wrapping the date ? I have seen it before (can't remember where) but it's a very rare occurence. Using IE 5.0 with all settings to lounge optimum.

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    At a guess, in threaded mode, the date column is set slightly too narrow - and 'Jun' is slightly larger than 'Apr'

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    I'm curious too because that table cell has a 'nowrap' attribute. What's different about your system?

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    I'm getting it too, on IE5.5
    FYI, I'm on Grey. If I change to a larger or smaller font, there is no line wrap. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Yep <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> would appear to be skin related. Changed from Toffee to Toffee Big and the wrap went away. On the other hand, why only this one thread ? I went through several pages of threads trying to find another example without success.

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    Ummm. I'll investigate. Surely a *smaller* skin shouldn't do it.

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    Another one <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=wrd&Number=35530&page=2 &view=collapsed&sb=5&o=0>here</A>

    My uneducated guess is that the column width is set by the first entry. In this and the first example, both have a first post date of April. Apr is slightly narrower than May or Jun, hence posts that span a month as these do, are displayed wrapped.

    ?

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    Right! Found it and fixed it. I was looking in the wrong place before - it *didn't* have the nowrap attribute. Now it has...

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    Could you give me the link - I can't tell where it is from your picture.
    It's a different script BTW...

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    Ah, I've found it. It was OK in 'top' view but I'd missed the nowrap attribute in 'side' view. It should right now.

    Re: Curious Thread Display

    oops, sorry that was the access forum but of course you know that now. By the way, if you can suggest a means of improving my side view (tend to cast a much larger shadow from that direction), it would be greatly appreciated. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Maybe "Keep your back to the wall at all times"? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
