    stretch forum skin 12th Apr 18 at 2:31 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.

    Haven't been on the forum for a few days and the forum is a diddy bit in the middle.

    I use the green forum and I prefer it stretched.

    I use Google Chrome - is there an add on I can use to make it look better please?

    Thanks.

    EASY to change layout, link in signature
    I've put Painkillers link in my signature so everyone who sees my posts can become aware there are other layout options that are easy to use. I didn't realise there's such a quick and easy solution for nearly all the browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Whilst looking at max width, I also noticed the declutter style so have applied both and it's now so much easier to skim read through and much less scrolling, saving potential RSI! THANK YOU PAINKILLER


    MSE Andrea, it's such a simple change in the code for your web developers, just change 1000px to 100pc which changes the width from pixels to percent and therefore automatically resizes to whatever screen ANYONE is using, it even looks like it could be a typo from the developer! Surely this can be done to please EVERYONE regardless of screen size as then we'll all benefit and much less bad feedback regarding the new site design?

    Please consider this...

    I tried this stylish thing, It only works on the forum home page, Not other links like reading posts.

    I don't see why they had to change or remove the themes the way they were. Change them back, It's a simple click of enabling a theme.
