[quote name="Scourge"]Your theme is great! But it needs to be alittle wider. Maybe fluid?[/quote]
Hi, Scourge. Thank you for the feedback, and glad you like the style.
The style being fixed is a concern that has been pointed out to me a few times, and I've been pondering options. When a member recently gave me feedback concerning the readability of the forum content, part of my response was as follows:
In a subsequent response, that member clarified that he didn't want me to change the width, but his feedback reminded me that I mean to give members the option of a fluid alternative of the style, if I can.Yeah, the designs available to this forum do have the problem of being too "skinny," which is a problem I should have gave more consideration to. Unfortunately, the "wide" versions of both templates have to be purchased separately, so I am under the impression that it cannot be done with the current templates.
I have three options. First, I can try to stretch the templates out a little more. Second, if I can stretch the templates out more, I may be able to upload the templates a second time with the modified width. Third, if stretching is not an option, I may purchase the "wide" version, at least for Enlighten, the default template.
If I am to make one of the first two choices, though, I will first need to educate myself as to how to do it.
I suppose the webmaster Patrick O'Keefe may be right when he said the following:
However, it wouldn't hurt to give members a choice. After all, this is the very same reasoning that went into my decision to have a "light" and "dark" style, and to choose the "light" style as the default (my experience is that more people than otherwise prefer a "light" style).The skinny pages thing is probably just a matter of taste. Some people like fixed width. Some don't. You are using a style that allows you to easily switch between the two, though, so you could try one and then go back and see what you think.
