    stretch forum skin 12th Apr 18 at 2:28 PM
    What happened to the stretch forum skin?

    I have a wide-screen monitor and the forums are stuck in the middle with a third of the screen blank on each side.

    Bring back the stretchy setting.

    Just checked in my Control Panel (CP)
    Settings & Options
    Edit Options
    Miscellaneous Options
    Forum Skin

    I am now set to "New masthead, fixed width (recommended)"
    I think this is what has changed.

    There are 2 other options which give a wider image, but I don't like the white colour scheme.

    Really? I find full width on my widescreen monitor unreadable whereas the narrower width skin is the perfect width. The older green version I'm talking about.

    Yes really ...
    being 'stretchy' you can change the window size to suit you and still have the window filled without the useless white bars wasting space at the side
    But each to their own ...
