are there any general guidelines to changing the location of the various parts of the forum ? - i have a few changes i need to make;

a few examples - i want to move the line Show: Today's Posts :: Unanswered Posts :: Show Polls :: Message Navigator to the bottom of the page as i dont anticipate the users will use it !!!
also i want to move the register/reset bar on the register page up higher so that it appears just under the required fields and above the optionals ( actually a duplicate set would even be better !! )
lastly but most important i need to adjust the layout of the login form so that it takes up less vertical space ( and more horizontal ) as i have the forum installed in a window and i dont want the users to have to scroll down to hit the login button.

these are really just examples - what would be ideal is if someone could give me some rough general pointers, thanks
Very Happy

There are no general guidlines, the templating system gives you a complete freedom of action, you can do whatever you want.

Any tips for centering the site? I have adjusted the width to 770px, and want to center it. Driving me nuts!!

not for me it didn't..

However, this does work
body {
	background: #E5E5E5;
	text-align:center; /* for IE */
	font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, "Myriad Web", Syntax, sans-serif;
	font-size: 12px;
}

div.wrapper {
	text-align:center; /* reset text alignment */
	width:760;
	margin: auto;  /*for the rest */
}


with the extra div.

Only problem is that <pre> content does not add horizontal scroll bars in IE only, making the page width go to max. This does not appear to be related to my changes?!?

In which instances does <pre> tag cause problem, which part of the page it is in?

Just fine in firefox, and all other pages ok in IE except this one, which I asssume is because of <pre> tags...

Well, pre tag is controlled by CSS, I suspect you may need some IE specific hack to address the "stretch" problem.

simple fix was all that was required...

just add width attribute to div.pre in CSS to prevent IE blowing it out of site width.
