  • [Forum] Post formatting is broken in 4.0.1

    These screenshots are from vbulletin.com so please don't tell me I broke anything.

    Something to do with the browser width.

    In Firefox, Safari and Chrome this is horrible and I am not going to tell my users they should always maximize their browser window! I am using a mac but a lot of other users complained about this too.

    How come your QA didn't catch this.

    It's a bug, there's a fix somewhere in this support forum, or in Trevor Hannant's post history probably.

        I have looked everywhere and can't find the fix and my support ticket is ignored.

          You should find this code in the postbit or postbit_legacy template depending on which you use:

          Code:
          <div class="content<vb:if condition="$post['isfirstshown'] || $post['islastshown']"> has_ad</vb:if>">
          and change it to this:

          Code:
          <div class="content<!--<vb:if condition="$post['isfirstshown'] || $post['islastshown']"> has_ad</vb:if>-->">
          If you subsequently want to place an ad in there, simply uncomment that section out.

              This is an inadequate solution. Ads are displayed only for lurkers and inactive users on my forums but this bugs appears even when there is no ads. Also on vbulletin.com forums, the same problem appears.

                Your fix doesn't work.. rebuilt styles, rebuilt post cache... still looks crap... this is how vbulletin.com looks in chrome right now:

                  I suspect it has something to do with the auto resizing.. similar to the resize of pics on the front page.

                      The problem is proportional to your window width as you can see the screenshots in the OP. I am on a Mac but other users have the same problem under Windows.

                      What did you change in 4.0.1 to make the images on the front page (http://www.kugutsumen.com) shrink dynamically with the browser windows size? I suspect this is the culprit.

                          Ok, well first of all no one really used 800x600 that often anymore. Even on this site is shrinks it down.

                          Apply the fix as stated (without the [code] tags lol). And it will repair the error until the next release comes out. Be patient, your "ads" can resume on all unregistered lurkers at that time.

                            Look at the snapshot of your post in this very same thread! My browser width is higher than Trevor's screenshot. Something is wrong with the postcontent.

                            The postcontent size and the image attachments on the CMS front page are now (since 4.0.1) proportional to the browser's width so I suspect that the problem is related to this change.

                            A lot of my users have been affected after the switch to 4.0.1. The problem appears with the latest versions of Firefox, Safari and Chrome and only on vbulletin forums running 4.0.1.

                            This is a serious and annoying bug.

                              We understand that, and Trevor gave you a FIX for it. Also stop using 800x600 resolution, get with the times.
