    Hi folks

    Turning off old forum versions

    Work to switch the forum to HTTPS needs to be done on all versions (skins) of the forum. To reduce the time and resource it takes to make the switch we need to switch off some of those old forum skins and migrate the forum members who are on them to a newer skin (the one prior to the new blue skin). This will affect around 1,000 of you. You will still be on an old, green version of the Forum and will, of course, still be able to choose to switch to the newest, blue version if you decide to. We're sorry this may affect your use of the Forum. Our priority, though, has to be the security of the site.

    The New Masthead, stretchy is no longer an option.

    If you want green you must choose New Masthead, fixed width

    If you want blue you can choose Use Forum Default

    If you choose the green version and don't like the space at each side then you can Zoom the page by 110% or 125%. This is especially useful for those with sight problems.

    ETA Painkiller's solution in post#8 is a much better solution

    Make sure you're on the green 'New masthead, fixed width' forum skin.

    Install the 'Stylus' extension;

    Firefox
    Chrome

    Download & install the max width style for MSE from here;

    Anybody got any tips to stretch it on Chrome please?
    This is driving me nuts, and the blue version is garbage - gives me headache.
    Thanks

    Hi Painkiller it works for me with stylish, but in the post #5 MSE Andrea states

    . Our priority, though, has to be the security of the site.
    I am using stylish with the stretchy width, so is that going to compromise security?

    It's great, thanks Painkiller.

    I didn't need to add 'Stylish' either, just installed the user-script and it's all back to stretchy

    Please do NOT install Stylish - it's spyware
