    Again. I'm very new to all this and do not understand how to do a lot of things.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for any help....

    Bumping my post...

    So let me get this straight. You can't see or use smileys on a mobile phone. You can't change the size of the avatars for users on your site. And you can't get the "activity stream" module to show and list every post chronologically?

    Three really important things on a forum website for users. SMH....

    I had to do several media queries to make it work responsive and still have some issues to work out. I am running 200px square avatars. I will probably revert as the reaction from the users is about 50/50 on like/dislike.

    I don't think it's big of a change to fix the responsive view for small devices. Just add this css:

    Code:
    .l-small .b-userinfo .b-avatar.b-avatar--m {
        height: 100px;
        width: 100px;
    }
    .l-small .b-userinfo .b-avatar.b-avatar--m > img {
        max-height: 100px;
        max-width: 100px !important;
    }
    Change 100px accordingly.

    Any attempts to change avatar sizes or widths in VB5 may break the "Responsive" nature of the style and should generally be avoided. If you do it be sure to test on small and tablet sized screens as well as full resolution computer monitors.

    Different versions have different priorities. Larger avatars often break the displays on mobile devices. Currently about 60% of internet access is via mobile devices.

    How can I do a 4.2 demo?

    BTW, why would anyone want VB5 if a most basic feature is not available. Higher resolution and larger Avatars are your signature and part of the user experience. This would seem to me to be a primary specification for any bulletin board software.

    I find it fascinating how restrictive some of the bulletin software is, mybb does not have user media galleries, and is non-intuitive on image uploading to posts, Xenforo restricts Forum and Category descriptions to 50 characters and after a full day of trying the most basic set-up I got nowhere (I got a refund).

    Thanks,

    In vBulletin 4.2, you can specify the Avatar size per usergroup. So you can have different sizes.
    In vBulletin 5.X, the avatar sizes are hard coded for the most part so you're going to overwrite a lot of CSS to change them.

    In vBulletin 4.2, you can easily change the default tab of your site with a single click.
    In vBulletin 5.X, you need to manually edit the URL of the pages in Site Builder. It is a bit more cumbersome.

    In vBulletin 4.2, you can change the width by editing a style variable.
    In vBulletin 5.X, you can change the width by editing a style variable.

    If you're going to be competing with other vBulletin 4.2 site, you probably do not want to use vBulletin 5.X. You want to use vBulletin 4.2, which is available with your license. You will have access to more configuration options, better avatar support and more available addons and styles.

    Were you referring to #4? I checked 5.1.8 and the .cell-forum width is still hardcoded to 50%

    1) http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...avatar-re-size
    2) Sitebuilder (Edit Site ON) > Edit Page > Change Layout tab > Choose "Full" layout
    4) In css_additional.css template or via Sitebuilder > Style > CSS Editor, add:

    Code:
    .forum-list-container .forum-item .cell-forum { width: 60%; }
