Would you please consider changing this font used to display raw code samples here on the website? I find it hard to read for several reasons...

It is a pretty large font and it often requires wrapping to fit each line in the web browse, and it is in italics, which is *never* how we see real code, and it is bold which is never how we see real code.

I think a mono spaced font, without bold, and bout 1 size smaller would be much better.

I think this:


Looks better than this:

Does it look better now ?
Function Start as Void

Yes. Now only reducing the tab width is left...
Ah, could the left column with avatar/name be changed to a "top line" ? A lot of screen estate occupied for no real gain...

Karl,
I can send you the CSS. Then you can figure out how to change that <g>.

Robert,
now, the tab width should be doable.
Changing the layout, ahem, is harder ;).
Thought, there might be another theme available...

Karl,
There IS no tab width in web pages afaik.
If you see a wide tab then the author has inserted many spaces

Robert-in looking at the HTML for the forum, I see basic HTML table rows and cells. Is there a particular theme template that is used for this forum? Is it edited through a portal type of interface or does it require that you have the source code files on your local machine and then push them up by FTP or something?

I’m pretty familiar with HTML markup and syntax for CSS, so I’d offer to work on the layout to move that side panel that’s hogging up wasted space and move it above the message body so we would have a wider message area. At one point today you had adjusted the layout in this manner, but the Gravatar image of each person was really large. I thought you were pretty close to getting worked out but then it changed it back to the old format.

Is this something you’d like me to work on?

Matt,

With some help from the people on the Kunena forum I managed to scale down the icons and switch to the new layout, as you can see.

Hi Robert,

Just as I wanted to complain about the "HUGE" user box, it suddenly became a lot smaller... Well I think it can reduce even further, but it is a move in the right direction.
Thanks,

The User details box is way too big, not sure if that can be reduced, it takes up half of my screen.

Robert,
Maybe if the User Icon, ID, and all the text are displayed in one line, it might be the best one can get under circumstances.

A lot better!
Could you shrink the "signature" line to "one line only ", as it there is even via mobil access space enough?
Also, there's no need to add extry vertical space behind the content, before you add the "Report to mod", that is... Maybe this button could wander into the header line: Icon, Name, Posts , Report
