  • Username size and info box

    I have set my forum to display the username on the left of the message instead of above. However, I would like to make the username smaller and also reduce the size of the box on the left.
    Can anyone let me know how you do this? Thanks in advance.

    You can change the username size by changing the font-size of the css class bigusername:

    AdminCP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> All Style Options -> Additional CSS Definitions -> .bigusername -> Change font-size to the required size
    To change the width of the box that contains the username, you need to edit the postbit_legacy template:

    AdminCP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager ->Edit Templates (from menu) -> Postbit_legacy

    Find the code in red and replace with the required pixel width
        <tr valign="top">
        	<td class="alt2" [color=Red]width="175"[/color]>
        		   <div id="postmenu_$post[postid]">
     		 	<a class="bigusername" href="member.php?$session[sessionurl]u=$post[userid]">$post[musername]</a>
     		 	<script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("postmenu_$post[postid]", true); </script>

      The size can be modified by changing the value for 175 pixels wide in the postbit_legacy template. The size of the big username is controlled by the class bigusername (style manager > main css from dropdown box [additional css definitions])
