How about sharing what you did?
No matter what my navbar width is only as wide as my Main Table Width setting (Even set as 100%. is there away i can change this, i want to leave the Main Table Width setting as it is but make the navbar wider without moving it to a different template?
I pretty much want to make it the same width as the footer.
Please help me.....
EDIT: See Below For Answer
In the 'Header' Template Find & Delete:
then in the 'Navbar' Template add this:Code:<!-- content table --> $spacer_open $_phpinclude_output
To the last line of your templateCode:<!-- content table --> $spacer_open $_phpinclude_output
So why is that not working for me?
I tried it in 3.7 and I tried it with the $_phpinclude_output and without, but it won't work.
It doesn't react to the $spacer_open in the navbar template and not only the navbar is at full width, but the whole forum is.
Any help appreciated.
All I do to change the width of the navbar to the full width of the forum (stretch it all the way across from side to side), is move the navbar code (nav buttons bar, found in the navbar template) to the header template, just above
Code:<!-- content table -->
Now I can't move the breadcrumb to the header, since I had to change the php files to let vb search in the header and not the navbar for the breadcrumb.
Moving the $spacer_open down under navbar and breadcrumb seems to be a very elegant way to have the width, of the header and to be more compatible for updates in the future.
With Jelsoft bringing updates on a regular basis with a few of them a year, I don't like to have a bunch of work each time, I have to do it.
Another point are plugins which are looking for the navbar in the navbar template and not moving it, could be ore comfortable.
I read the whole internet and found some infos about moving the spacer command , but it doesn't work for me in a 3.7 vb. I asked here, at vb.org, vb-germany.org and at vb.com too, but nobody seems to be able to give an answer to a simple question.
I even asked a designer, which we had hired a year ago, if he could do it and I didn't get answer from him.
So I think, it is more complex, than I think it is, but Jelsoft should be able to answer, why it doesn't work.
Paying Jelsoft for the work they do doesn't make me nervous, but wasting a lot of time and not getting answers drives me crazy ...
So I still would like to know, why it doesn't work and what I could do to make it work or if there is a better way to do it.
I am even willing to pay for a working answer and I don't want to die as dumb as I am.
If you die dumb, then so will I, lol. The breadcrumb is coded to be the same width as the forums. Not being a coder, I have no idea how to work around that. Perhaps one of our coders will jump in here but I wouldn't count on it on a weekend.
It's the USC hack, which breaks this little hack ..
Thanks for the hands.
