    It's just a matter of preference and with vbPortal 3.0.0 column width is easily set in the css file for each style.

    Example:
    Code:
    #left, #right {
     background-color: white; /* page background */
     position: absolute;
     top: 108px;
     width: 160px;
    }

    how comes vBindex never makes these polls.

    of the two i'd choose vBa but that's mostly cos aesthetically vBp feels cramped and overcrowded.

    Thanks for the update. I admit that I last used vBPortal with vB2 almost 2 years or more ago, and it added hundreds of mysql queries to my database. I'm sure that vBPortal version 3 is a world of difference and I apologise for my ignorance in this matter. I didn't realise that vBPortal 3 is no longer Nuke based. I guess I better get up to date before making generalised statements like I did.

Includeing full across the top menus if you want.

    For example. http://www.xboxusersgroup.com/forums/index.php (except for his popups he does really nice graphic work )
    i had all but forgotten about vbportal. i even registered for the premium account to get the first vb3 beta test from memory. must go and check my member status

    It looks funny to see the "vBulletin.NL" logo on your site, maybe you can change that soon

    I'd chose vBa CMPS, but I have nothing against vbPortal.

    hehe which is why on my site I made the gap a smitch bigger.

    I tried as big as the vBadvanced (which I used before) but, well, my members complained saying it looked to "homemadeish", whatever THAT means?

    So I compromised and made it smaller, but left a big enough gap that they are definetly seperate.

    I must say though, Not just from the admin point of view, but even my Members are happier with the vbPortal, compared to the vBadvanced.

    From one member: "The old portal LOOKED temporary, this one is so clean and well laid out."

    are you saying the width between the left, center and right column is too narrow for your likeing?
    if so its an insignificant change to the .css. I wanted maximum content so set the width between the columns to 5px. I'm considering 800x600 visitors. Its also why many of my pages only have blocks toggled in the left column. I'm not restricted to the same blocks on every page, each page can have which ever blocks I decide.
