Out of curiosity what resolution and monitor size are you using?

jayhab's custom stylesheet helps pack more text only deals in a page - check out his thread it's linked in the right hand box on the forum and front pages.

What's really weird, is in one version of Opera on this machine, the layout or more importantly the fonts, are different to another machine with the same version of Opera - both running at 1024x768.

Edit: Just worked out why!!!!! Opera is using "C:\Program Files\Opera\styles\user.css" for the stylesheet. Can't remember doing it - but know it must have been me! Now for a bit more tweaking!!!

Ah, the style sheets thing has made the font how I'd like, but I'd still like to at least double the number of topics shown. I guess I might be able to do that by learning how those style sheets work, I'll have a look in a bit.

I have a 17" monitor with 1280x1024 resolution by the way, and thanks for the fast response.

Edit: Could jayhab's format not be made the default for everyone? It's so much better, but I know I'd have to put up with the old look when I logged in from other computers, which I do quite frequently.

Stylesheets wont help on the number of posts. Thats done within the admin of the site - but agree with your sentiments.

To be fair, a fair bit of his CSS has now been used and it has made a big improvement.

Ah I see - to increase the actual number of deals shown we'd have to make that tweak on our end.

Indeed.

Ive not used V-Bulletin before, so not really much help. However, Ive just setup a V-Bulletin Forum to have a play and hopefully show you where. [url]www.geteven.biz/vb[/url]

Ive actually done this to get the change of display in the CSS via a button so users can chose to have the right side panel (or not!!!) via CSS control. Wont be doing that tonight though! Just noticed the time! Took about 90 minutes to get up and running!

OK, found it. Knew it wouldn't take long!

Go into Admin control

Select vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options

Then Thread Display Options

Then amend Maximum Displayed Posts Before Page Split

Looks like its currently set to 15, though the option is there to let users select their own (with limitations set by admin)
banned#8
OK, continuing to play and finding way around!!!!

You currently have it set to allow users to select the number of posts per page:

Go to user control panel

Select >>>> Edit Options >>>>Then >>>>>> Thread Display Options >>>>>>>> Select from the pulldown "Number of Posts to Show Per Page"

So its already there (though it is controlled within your admin panel like I said!)

Yeah, but I think the rest of the page, being custom, might have to be messed with to accommodate for the extra posts guv...

??? Sorry, don't understand what you mean! The option is currently in the control panel options, available now and works!
#11
Ohhh... OK. :)
[admin]#12
I don't think it works here though guv? We aren't using vb to display those pages.

You are!!!

I've set mine to 50 on this forum in control panel and 50 posts it what it displays!!! I am referring to the content of the threads though - not the form starter posters within the forum titles.

I'll dig deeper later to see in those can be amended also - but tied up at the mo. (Damn decorating!!!)
#14
Ah yess, you can increase the number of comments per page but the list of threads isn't in vBulletin any more.
banned#15
OK - I couldn't resist!

In Admin control panel >

V-Bulletin Options >

Forum Display Options (forumdisplay) >

Maximum Displayed Threads Before Page Split > and edit this.

I appreciate your back end may be different to the standard interface, but worth having a look if you did want to change it!

OK, as I said, I appreciate your backend may have been modded and unrecognisable now. But the post above shows where it "normally" sits.

So if its not controlled in VB, where is it controlled? In CSS?

I can't answer where the problem is, I doubt it's CSS... the AdminCP will still be there, however these pages are most likely constructed elsewhere in the backend.

I would think its still exactly where it was, but modified. Obviously thats a hunch - I cant see the hard code, so certainly wouldnt be able to see where the "problem" is! Has anyone tried what was mentioned above to test? I would be surprised if it didnt - and i really do think that is probably where the code would need amending and likely to be editable within VB. Worth having a peek though (that is of course if you did actually want to amend that!!) Personally, I'd prefer it to be double what it currently is - or at least 30 titles.
[admin]#19
Oh yeah you can change the number of comments shown as we still use vb to show comments.

Other than the actual comments and user administration everything has been coded from scratch.

He he. So remind me what it was that the OP was referring to?:p I thought it was thread titles or thread posts within that we were talking about! I'm confused now!

Edit - ah - just re-read - so it is the forum titles you are saying is embedded to be the number thats currently being displayed? Terms can be a bit confusing at times!
