    If anyone who works for vBulletin cares, I should would appreciate a response on these 2:

    Consider yourself lucky that Trevor replied in this thread. And here's another news flash for you:

    THE vBULLETIN FORUMS ARE NOT THE VENUE FOR OFFICIAL SUPPORT!!

    You cannot expect nor demand support from the vBulletin team here. If they do chime in (and they often do), it's a bonus. Otherwise, you just have to wait for one of us lowly users to come along and help, if we happen to know the answer.

    If you want direct help from the dev team, submit a support ticket.

    I validated your forum at w3.org. You have a lot of self-induced errors you should correct before moving on.

    The validator at w3.org is invaluable, IMO.

    The support staff here is second to no one. They go above and beyond assisting members here.

    Working through those will hopefully help with the dropdown issues.

    As for the fixed width, both myself and another staff member have tried the fixes suggested in that thread within the last few mintues and successfully gotten a fixed width, centered forum. If this isn't working for you then something else is breaking that within your templates.

    To troubleshoot that, 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. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

    Did you open a support ticket?

    Understood, but I'd rather they focus more on their own coding of their product than be in a super rush to help someone out with a botched customiztion.

    Revert the header. Does the search box go back to normal? My guess would be that it does. And if it does, that means that the problem does indeed lie with your own coding.

    I added my template code to the header and footer templates, but did not modify their code.


    My reference to the bad customer service was in reference to their responsiveness, not their knowledge.
