View Full Version : Make Photopost stick to template size

My photopost gallery doesn't stay without the VB templates, it really spoils the look of the forum. How can I fix this?

In such a restrictive width site you will need to turn off the sidebar under sidebar options in admin panel.

looks more like bad programming to me. It's hardly unique to have forums that fit the size of the rest of thir site.
Is there no way to move the sidebar to the bottom?

This has nothing to do with bad programming in any manner.
You can put the sidebar on the index under the cat display by turning on the undercats bar in sidebar options.
Lets look at your site so you understand the issue that I see.
Your constricting your page to say 800 pixels wide. Look at the photo on your showphoto page it is 600 pixels wide and that is not even without all the information rating bar comments box etc. There is no way you can show a sidebar on that page based on that page size and photo sizes and expect things to fit.
Now lets go to your index and look at how just looking at the date format your using the avatar column and the category name display your using over 630 pixels wide easy to display that info and then you tried showing the sidebar thats why nothing fits.
There are options in the admin panel to turn off certain columns etc so that you could potentially show a sidebar there. It is just what settings you turn on or off that make you able to do that.

If you want to show a sidebar on the index on that restrictive with try this
Under Admin => Sidebar Options turn on the sidebar on the index only.
Under Admin => Index Options turn these options to no.
Show Last Comments column on Index?
Show Last Photo column on Index?
Let me know how that displays now. its all about printing information on a page and making it constrict to a width.
