Anyone know how to... [message #16230] Tue, 20 January 2004 18:57 Go to next message

I am noticing that when I have moderators in some forums, those forums appear on three lines because moderator comes on a line below forum description (see attached image). I would like to have moderator appear on the same line as the forum title, still right justified, so that each forum only takes up two test lines whether there is a moderator or not. Any ideas for implementing?

I believe there are 2 ways to do it:

1) With tables, by creating a 2 column table where the 1st column contains the forum name (#1 column left justified) and the moderators (#2 column right justified). Then the description would go into the 2nd row, which would span the length of both columns.

2) CSS float trick.


This can potentially cause nasty wrapping issues when forum name is long or there are is a long list of moderators. Or for people using smaller resolution. Which is why it was my decision to put this data on a row of it's own.

Yes, I eventually split the columns. I can understand the wrapping concern, but as my site has many forums and few moderators, my main concern is in keeping the amount of scrolling as low as possible.

I would suggest using the feature of collapsing the forums that was written into the forum for just such a purpose. When setiing up a category set the default view to closed. It is set to open...

If you intend to cut down on scroll time. how ever nobody really cares who the mod is. Hell most of the time we are lucky if people are not to lazy to even post or reply.

I asked a everyone to rate me and give me feedback, out of 29 ppl who viewed my site not even one, wasn't to lazy to give me some feed back.

We end up getting about as much consideration for our design and time and work as people give strangers when bumping into them at a grocery store, which is why forums never stay around long.

People design them with all these big plans to have hundreds of visitors. It Just isn't so, if you have a following your fine. If you plan to just make a forum and don't have followers who will invite others, I think the whole thing can become a serious waste of valuable time.
