  • Registration Rules Stretching

    Hi everyone, how's it going?

    You know when you go to resgister, the first thing you have to do is click yes to some rules? Well my rules page is stretching, and I don't want it to...

    Take a look see.

    So yeah, that looks a bit still really. Does anyone know how I can fix this error?

    Cheers!

    Have you modified the forum_rules_description phrase at all? If not, this is most likely due to another modification.

    First, reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Version' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

    Next, disable all plugins.

    Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Then make this the default style.

    Admin Control Panel -> vBulletin Options -> Style & Language Settings -> Default Style

    Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Do you have the same problem?

      Hi Lovemonk. (I swear I'm not stalking you! Just seems like I know the answers to your issues, heh.)

      I see the problem -- you've set a specific width for the "page" class of 900px. Since the rules are wrapped in a DIV that uses the page class, they're inheriting this width.

      Easy fix though. In your style's Registration template category, open up register_rules and look for:

      Code:
      <div class="page" style="border:thin inset; padding:$stylevar[cellpadding]px;<if condition="!is_browser('konqueror')"> height:175px; overflow:auto</if>">
      We want to add a specific width for this form -- for example, "width:625px;". So you can change the above to:

      Code:
      <div class="page" style="border:thin inset; padding:$stylevar[cellpadding]px; width:625px; <if condition="!is_browser('konqueror')"> height:175px; overflow:auto</if>">
      This should do the trick. Good luck!

        kiwilerner, I had to trim it down to 600, but it worked a treat, cheers!

        Steve, I did a diagnostics thing, and some files from the forum root say File version mismatch: found 3.6.7 PL1, expected 3.6.8. I then downloaded 3.6.8 again and uploaded the matching files....which then made it say File does not contain what was expected which made me worry. So I downloaded 3.6.7 and put them back so it says what it did at the beginning...again. Does that all sound okay?

          That depends. Which version of vB are you running and which one shows up in the Admin CP?

            I'm running vb 3.6.8, and it says that in the adminc CP too.

              You need to upload the 3.6.8 files.

                I uploaded the vb3.6.8 files matching those that said "expected 3.6.8" in the diagnostics bit, but then it said not what was expected. Also, I upgraded from 7 to 8, so shouldn't it have all been automatically done?

                  What do the suspect file diagnostics show?

                      Yes, I'm aware of what it said before. But based on post #8 I am asking what it says now.

                        Sorry, I didn't mean to imply you weren't aware. I did all that stuff, and it's now saying (for the root files)...

                        File version mismatch: found 3.6.7 PL1, expected 3.6.8
                        ...except for arcade.php, and statistics.php, where it rightfully says they are recognized as a part of vBulletin.

                          That means that you have not uploaded the 3.6.8 files. You need to do that as per post #7.

                          Make sure that your FTP client is set to automaticallly overwrite the files.

                            But I did that before, and then it said the files weren't what was expected (in the diagnostics bit).

                            When I originally updated from .7 to .8, I uploaded all the new files as instruced, I know I did because ive checked the last altered dates on them.

                            I've uploaded the root files for .8 again. The diagnostics for those files now says...

                            File does not contain expected contents
                            I don't seem to be losing any functionality though. Should I run the upgrade system again?

                              This means the files are not being upoaded correctly. I suggets trying a different FTP program and making sure that you are uploading all non-iimage files in ASCII mode.

                              You will know that you have uploaded the files correctly when you no longer get those results.

                              Do not run the upgrade again since you have already upgraded to 3.6.8.
