  • User info position in a post - n00b

    Hi I'm very new to vBulletin..

    the only thing I don't like is the position of the info of the member, by default its at the top of the reply, splitting each reply from the other..

    I would like to have it phpBB like, where the user info would be on the left side.

    I tried finding that from the ACP but couldn't figure it out.

    please help.


    thanks.

          It tends to be dynamic depending on the info being displayed.

            To change the width of the column:

            Style & Templates -> Style Manager -> All Style Options -> Edit Templates. Open Postbit Templates, and scroll down to postbit_legacy, and open that template.

            Find:

            Code:
             <td class="alt2" width="175" style="border: $stylevar[cellspacing]px solid $stylevar[tborder_bgcolor]; border-top: 0px; border-bottom: 0px">
            Change the TD width to your needs.


            To change the size of the Username:

            Style & Templates -> Style Manager -> All Style Options -> Main CSS

            Scroll down to the bottom, there you will find Additional CSS Definitions. In this box your will find:

            .bigusername { font-size: 14pt; }

            Change the size there I would recommend you copy that bit and paste it into the box below and change the name and size there (for example .biggerusername { font-size: 16pt; } and then go back to postbit_legacy template, search for bigusername and change it to biggerusername.

              that was a lot of help thanks.

              for the second thing (user name size)

              I was in postbir_legacy and I changed the 'bigusername' to 'bigusername_small' and before I change it in the Aditional CSS I refreshed the forum and the usernames showed small!!!!

              is this ok? should I just keep it or do I have to change the same in Aditional CSS?

                It went "small" because you didn't assign a style to that class. Add the bigusername_small" to the blank box at the very bottom of the Main CSS and assign a value to it. You can even change the font, font color, etc to. For example:

                Code:
                 
                .bigusername_small {
                font: 10px verdana, helvetica, arial, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', sans-serif;
                color: #00FFFF;
                }
                If you don't like how verdana looks, swap it with one of the others in the list.
