    Templates!

    forumdisplaybit and (I think) forumdisplay_threadslist

    You just need to remove the <td>...</td>'s to the left of the title cell.

      you wouldn't know the exact lines to remove as knowing me I could screw this up. am interested only in the thread icon column now (the one in between the thread title and the folder icon column)

            I made the necessary changes to the two templates mentioned above (forumdisplaybit [pulling the td tags for the posticon column] and forumdisplaybit_threadslist [adjusting the colspan for the "thread" heading to 2 instead of 3]) and all is fine except for the announcement at the top of my board. It still stretches out the table one extra column. Do I need to edit the announcement template?

              Nevermind, I got it. I had to edit the announcement template as well. Took out an extra td tag.

                Adjusting the titles column width?

                Yetdog's detailed notes have been very helpful. I have removed both of the left colums, per the original question--therefore I set colspan="1" in _threadslist---and for some reason this does not leave an extra colum or (I suppose) an extra <td> in _announcements. Anyway, it works!

                Question: Can someone suggest an html code, and where to place it, to set a fixed COLUMN WIDTH in pixels for the titles column? I have tried several things and can't seem to get it. If anyone has any ideas, just give me a guess please and I'll try it out... (My HTML is not so good, so even the most obvious advice might be the answer...)

                General notes: I also am trying without success to change the order of the columns. This is not critical, but I do believe "number of replies" should be right next to the titles--especially if you remove the "hot topics" column as we seem to plan here. Actually I think the "number of replies" is more meaningful 90% of the time than "hot topics" and also "ratings" and also everything else combined. The only other feature that is of much value is "thread starter"---and I am hoping to include that in the title, instead of in a separate column... Anyone else working on these things? Please let me know how it goes. Thank you.

                  Just place a

                  Code:
                  width="XX"
                  in whichever <td> you're trying to edit.

                    Aha! Eureka! width="200" goes right next to colspan="1" in the forumdisplay_threadslist.

                    I had tried width="x" before---but I was doing it in the wrong place. I had tried just before where it already says width=100% (refers to something else evidently)---also tried in the displaybits template---and etc---all failures.

                    Well, now that I knew I probably had the right code---it was just a matter of "not giving up"... Thanks, Billabong.
