Herp, I thought the chemical theme was the one we were using for everywhere, not this horrible one that was inflicted on BBH. Close your eyes, lest ye be blinded

And once we're back to normal, just scroll down to where you clicked on 'recent topics' before. Instead of showing new topics that have been made, it will show topics that have been active, with the most recent first

@Emergy: yes it is, but for padding I think px is better as it's a finite setting rather than percentages.

Butjam: You've made all the text smaller, wtf did you do? Come on IRC and I'll guide you through it (as well as fixing the damn text!)

TBH Admins should have experience in this type of stuff. Butjam, go learn!

Can index.php files be edited directly?

If so, add some sexy stuff in the #userarea like custom links, etc.

Alright, problem solved, I was editing the wrong theme, hence not being able to follow basic instructions <_<

Right, so that is avatars fixed, youtube added and recent topics changed to be a little bit more like the old version. Complicated stuff can wait for the big boy admins or for someone to hold my hand. Fortunately, Mantle is gonna' let me flower about on his test forum so maybe I'll learn something... But yes, Emergy, we can edit the stuff directly. Whether I'm competent enough to do it....

Why is yours so narrow?!

And yes, it's possible. But really don't ask Butjam to do that, please >_>;

Not that I know of, this is a mod that was installed but there was another suggested so I'll go take a look at that. Although it lists the most recent posts, it only shows one from each thread at least... halfway there

Can't we just have a fixed size for avatars and make the one in the top left hand corner not touch the blue banner?
All these miss shaped avatars, myself included, is driving my OCD into overdrive.

All avatars are forced to be 150x150 by the forums, it's how SMF works. You can upload any size but it always shows a 150x150 avatar (unless it's not a square, then it shows *x150 or 150x*). So if it's wrong, just upload a square one :P

I guess admins could enforce an upload size but that would also cause problems - and the solution is the same - make the image the right size before you upload   :roll:

Am I the only one who sees the avatar touching the blue banner though in the top right hand corner?
And no I'm not using IE.

That's how we add it. If I add 1 more it won't touch... I think

Lower it, not add onto it. The padding-top defines the padding ABOVE the image, so making it smaller moves it up. Try making it 45px instead of 50.

Also find #toolbar and make the height 1px smaller as it's out of alignment for some reason :s

Still touching cloth so to speak.
If it's not sortable, don't worry I'll stick some gaffer tape over the top right hand corner of my monitor.
