Tx for the cynicism, but I recall you that UNIX users are far from be the majority on this planet, so it's not a valid argument to me...

I just gave you a clue on the way I use my browser but I understand if you don't care at all and only want to see your own interest... :wink:

(Cynicism war? :lol:)


First of all my response was not at all meant cynically. Second, YOU are a UNIX user, since MAC's feature a complete beautiful UNIX system. So if you do not subscribe to the UNIX philosophy, well...

True, but not since so long! And in practice, Mac users are far from being UNIX power users!! (I don't know much about the UNIX policies you were referring in your previous post... :oops: )

The CM template has been updated with a lot of small fixes.
Also added a tougher Bot deflector to the registration process.

Among the fixes is more visible buttons to edit your own posts, clearer links in posts, wrapping on the "Right Now" string, no more clipping of Avatars, and some other cosmetic details.

Runar,

is the template now supposed to be improved?

I immediately notice that with several users logged in, cartrite is only partly visible, just like before.

Quote:
Right now: today - 09:20 pm. Online Members: cartrite, rthorvald, t00fri. Our newest member is cart

with >= 3 users logged in, the newest user is not visible anymore.

Also the menu in the editor window is significantly cut off. The latest entries have become invisible.

I haven´t changed the menu at all, it is a separate include file that is shared by all pages (exept for the topmost item). What is invisible?

Size (fonts) is half cut off.

Aha, well that is not new. It is because you have scaled your font size up +3. The menu now takes up a little more room since it uses sans-serif fonts. The only way to change this is to either abbreviate the button names or wrap the menu on two lines. I don´t like either. Have to think about it. Perhaps i should make the button row float on top instead...

That seems to be a rather unstable arrangement of buttons, given the large variety of resolutions and font sizes...

Yep. That is why it is so difficult. It is a side-effect of adding the extra functions (the extra image, center and FAQ buttons).

The obvious solution is of course to wrap it into two rows, but then it takes up more room.

Right now on my test system, i have the buttonrow floating above everything else. That works of course too, but if you scale up your fonts too much, it floats on top of the right-hand menu instead of disappearing behind it... Causing the opposite problem.

Scaling the font down is not good either; it is at 11p now, which is small enough already.

Well, some solution will present itself. Right now i am testing the float-above.
