Hello :)

How can I remove the area marked in the pic?



Thanks!

You want to remove all of the user info, and the search?

diablo3x.dk

Actually, yes. I want the user info gone as marked on the pic. I have installed Simple Portal, which displays the same info to the right of the boards - but with more info. The search area could stay I guess :)

You can easily hide these sections in the index.css (SMF 2.0)  style sheet.

For SMF 2.0 - Themes > Default (or whatever theme you choose) > css > index.css

Look for:

#upper_section div.news
{
width: 50%;
float: right;
text-align: right;
display: none;      /* <--- Add this line */
}


and

div#upper_section div.user
{
width: 35%;
float: right;
overflow: auto;
text-align: right;
display: none;      /* <--- Add this line */
}


Add the lines as indicated.

It will work, just not the way I normally deal with such things.

I tend to follow the "easy as possible" route. Adding two lines to a CSS page is easier than removing lines of code in a template but hey, each to his own ;D

That worked! Thanks :)

Is it possible to get rid of the last un-used space? I can still expand and collapse the header. You can see for yourselfes on www.forum.diablo3x.dk

As you will see I have added the search and user info areas to the right of the boards instead :) Just want as much space as possible on top.

Which is exactly why I suggest removing the whole code from index.template.php

I have to run, if when I get back this is not yet resolved I will give you the edit to completely remove the instances.

I guess Labradoodle may be better able to fix your issue than me. I note from Object Inspector that the "top_section" has three <br> tags before your line of News so maybe that would be a quick fix. However, I'll leave it there.

Sounds good. Thanks :)

Sorry for the delay, I have been quite busy working on other projects.

Thanks, Labradoodle. That was excactly what I needed! Very much appreciated.
Have been to work myself so no worries ;)

Thanks again.

/edit

Oops. Actually, something is wrong.
www.forum.diablo3x.dk
Something is not right. You can see that to the left of the header area.

Looks like a div was closed too early.

(Meaning that there is an extra </div> around the area that I removed)
