Help concerning the width of forum topics

http://auoff.myfreeforum.org/index.php

I am using the AcidTechBlood template, which feels to be 100% good, except that when we type posts or replies we can't follow our own typing below the type area showing, and the posts all show completely across our screens (Any way to use word wrapping).

I tried to hunt for answers to this and 2 other questions, and I hope this topics section is the proper arena for this and the others to post to.

Thanks,
DM
Bravo

Not 100% sure what you mean (a screenshot if possible would help).

Are you accessing via mobile internet (ie on cellphone/mobile phone)?  If so, I have had an issue whereby if I've typed more than the original text box can take, the last line of my text only shows the top few pixels rendering it difficult to read my own last line of text.

I may not be online much longer to follow this through as it is 3:13am here and I am only up because I am at deaths door with manflu, depending on how quickly you reply etc I may have gone to bed, but the mantle will be picked up by others, the extra info I ask for can't hurt in either event

Thanks Bravo

LOL...no prob if tonight or not. Its not as if we have thousands of users (yet)  

Screenshot? 100% fly-by-ear dude here........

I clicked on select all...copied...work?
?? doubt it so will try this.

I use a quality desktop to work from home on. I do know they all have decent to quality computers due to their jobs. (the signin and who's online issue shouldn't be that issue)

As far as the type area where posts and replies are typed, it allows me to see only the first paragraph or two, and if I wish to edit below that I must go almost letter by letter (scrooling down, placing the cursor) and when I begin to type or edit there it brings the type back to top position (though what i am typing is still appropriately below but out of sight)

When reading posts, my monitor is new, 19" flat screen, but I still must scroll back and forth to read an entire line.

This info help any?

Thanks again

 Place our Banner - Win a Tee    
Size: 728 x 90
Direct giff access URL:
http://i1095.photobucket.com/albu...z/AUOFF%20Images/728x90banner.gif   (Banner1)
URL Link to place:
http://auoff.myfreeforum.org/



For those who place this, send me the web page to review and we will place all users who link this properly on any of their personal pages into a quarterly drawing. The winner will be chosen by a blindfolded child, and he or she will get to brag about being the first on their block to own an original AUOFF All Cotton Pocket Tee Shirt (the winner, not the child), and, it'll be shipped directly to them free of charge - WOW! Logoed, sized for them, in black or white by their choice  

This exact banner must be used (it may be resized for the site demands only), and the link must work properly. NO LINK TO ANY OTHER PAGE OR SITE MAY BE PLACED AT ANY TIME!

The drawings will be held upon the conclusion of each quarters end (until repealed by us), with the first drawing held April 5 to 7 of 2011...even if I was the only one to place it - BUT, my name (DM - Full Admin) drops from the drawing if even one true user or non-full admin/moderator (only one full admin exists, and that is me) places it. No special considerations go to any admin/moderator in our drawings or games over other users ever!

You may place it on as many personal sites as desired, and each one site counts as one entry for the drawing. So, open as many personal sites to "Billboard" for us as you wish to - and save my poor eyesight  

This banner is made by me, and owned by myself and Fire-Maiden only.

http://take-a-screenshot.org/ <- how to take a screenshot.  It's basically an image copy of what is currently on your screen.

screen shot

I think this shot might actually work right, had to link

myff admin

Not sure on the width issue, but those colours are unreadable
Nick(NR)

the problem is the forum title for the index breadcrumbs it is MASSIVELY long

http://auoff.myfreeforum.org/Place_our_Banner_Win_a_Tee_about66.html

Ok, you need to edit two files and they are: viewtopic_body.tpl and viewforum_body.tpl

in each there should be the macro below twice in each file on most templates, once near the top and once near the bottom, if you only have one, then no worries.

{FORUM_NAME}

basically what you need to do is change the macro to anything that is shorter as it's pulling the name of your forum from your general config settings, so swapping out that macro to say Forum Index should help resolve your issue, if not as always shout back to us and we'll look a little more to try and find another solution.
Darkest-Messiah

yes...will be one of my next to-do's to re-do one or two posts due to colors, wanting everything sat first  

Thanks

I must appologize again. I have searched all areas of my forum admin area, but can find nothing associated with any of that.

How do I find these "edit two files and they are: viewtopic_body.tpl and viewforum_body.tpl"

Or the macro in the forum index? My forum index only takes me to like a preview of my forum itself, checked within the admin index, control panel, looked through styles and portals, and then web pages area, and then looked through each again but to no avail

I changed the forum title

LOL...forgive me, but I do greatly appreciate the attempts to help me. I am not totally lost, just mostly

OK when you click on this option in the Admin Panel the first screen you will see will be the Please Read Carefully Before Proceeding screen.

If this is your first attempt of making a template or changing your logo then you will have to create your own template first.

First off you need to be looking here Create one of your Forum Templates from an existing template in the first scroll bar you choose which template you wish to copy, say for example you wish the style used on this board which is called subsilver you would need to scroll down and find subsilver, then in the next scroll box choose myff_1 now press submit.

OK you have now made your template you should be able then to click on the first scroll bar under the Choose Template to Edit which should now have myff_1 in the list click on that and now you can edit your template or change or logo or icons.

You should now see the Choose File to Edit screen.

It is in this area that you will find all your .tpl files like OVERALL_HEADER.tpl

Awesome cool...havent played like this since the days of COBOL and RPG and BASIC...27 years ago..grrr      

I DID IT...but, I apparently didnt do anything at all.

Our starter page is perfect as always, it's when we open a topic to read. This is still overly wide
Nick(NR)

the next thing I can think of is the jump box at the bottom of the last post, with some overly long forum names like "LOOK OUT -TROLLS ARE BEING ATTACKED ABOVE THIS BRIDGE - LOOK OUT -TROLLS ARE BEING ATTACKED ABOVE THIS BRIDGE - LOOK OUT " it could be stretching the jumpbox, as each option can't be spread over more than one line
Darkest-Messiah

ah

Good to know...fixed, but the read area is still te same when reading a topic

I truely have no idea what difs there are from the early 80's and todays languages, nor do I recall much of it....is there some sort of string that gives those pages that width that can be changed out?

Thanks again...I'll try as long as you do  
Nick(NR)

Not really, that template has a set width of 800, hence why the page will stretch when things are wider than the parent container, you can increase the width, but it doesn't really solve any thing.

Ill keep watching this thread...thanks
Darkest-Messiah

no worries

hey...on that tiny issue of read area, dont worry...I gave up and have sat 10 templates for users to choose from, and I chose one that reads right for my computer usage...I serriously appreciate the fun though and would like to get on to the topic of how to make our post/topic reply writing area seeable as we type downward (being unable to see what we type below the first paragraph or so...or should I post another topic for this?
Nick(NR)

need to see a screenshot example of what you see
