Title: Display Problems
Post by: riker on September 09, 2008, 08:51:19 AM
I seem to have display problems with SMF 2.0 (beta4) which I didn't have with SMF 1.1.x

Attached are examples using IE8 & Opera
Title: Help Pages
Post by: riker on September 09, 2008, 10:06:04 AM
I've noticed another problem on the Help pages using Firefox 3 (see screenshot).  It's worse than that on IE8 but when you click the compatibility button it sorts that out

I have another display issue with 2.0 beta 4, the theme "Outline" shows a lot of whitespace between the top of a post and the actual content.

had that too but clicked compatability on IE8 (beta2) and that fixed it.  I thought the beta team would have noticed all these easy to spot display issues

Try adding this to the theme's css file.  It fixed it for me.



/* ************************************* */
/* Added to make b4 compat               */
/* ************************************* */

ul, ul li {
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
list-style: none;

ul.normallist {
padding-left: 2em;
}

ul.normallist li {

}

.post ul {
padding-left: 2em;
}

.post ul li {

}

.post ul li li {

ul.horizlist {

}

ul.nolist li {

Here it is.  Remember I said IE8 Beta 2

Thanks for your replies both.

Haven't confirmed what browser he is using but I'll mention that if he's using Beta8.

I tried pasting the code which doesn't include line breaks when I do any of this pasting (grrr) but manually did that but it made no difference unless I added it in wrong place (I put it at the end of the CSS?)

However when testing on my second PC at 1024 mode I noticed that only certain posts had it and I noticed only from certain members. This got me thinking because the gaps went past the profile info on the left below the avatars was it avvy related. My avvys are set to be max 140 wide, I just changed this to 120 in the settings and low and behold it's fixed. Now my uploaded Avvy is 140 wide and even after changing the setting in the Admin to 120 it keeps my 140 avvy and displays correctly.

So it doesn't seem to be the Avvy causing this but perhaps the spacing after the avvy forcing the table over therefore pushing the postdown and creating the gap?
So where is this spacing which i am guessing is something like a 10px gap which I can then alter to 0 and fix?

Maybe someone else with this issue can perhaps try reducing their Avvy width down by 10 or 20 pixels and see if it fixes too?

I never thought I'd say this about a beta but I though the prevous had less bugs.  My sons site still has that running sweat and not one display problem

I did the above code mod, and it fixed the display issue with the user information portion of the post but it still has a rather large gap between the top of a post and the actual content.

Try clearing your cache, browser and forum based.  I think after the upgrade a mixture of old and new content it corrupting the display at times.

This is a known bug for IE 6 and 7/other browsers.  I'm submitting a bug report for this now, as I've experienced this on Hogville, as well.

Hi all!
Saddened for my poor English:
Only to signal that I also have this small problem with some themes (see joined image):
(http://img514.imageshack.us/img514/9094/dsn1am8.th.jpg) (http://img514.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsn1am8.jpg)
- A space mattering between the subject and the contents of the post and
- A problem of adaptation of the menus

Modifications offered in this post were unsuccessfully.
I wait therefore with impatient for the evolution of this:

Unfortunately I've got no where here with regards to the theme problems sebmaster.  The best I've had was to use the beta 3 theme but then you can't use mods so we've been left waiting for the RC :(
