Hi SMO,
If you can change the width in the 'header' template:

<!-- START header image -->
<div align="center" style="width: 750px" class="border">
<!-- END header image -->


Change the width to what you want :)

Thanks,
Mat

tonight would be killer bro i really appreciate that. i'm getting helllllla feedback from users complaining and i've gone through hundreds of lines of code today trying to fix it to no avail.

p.s. how come changing "Main Table Width (pixels or percentage)" in Style Manager to 100% doesn't fix it?

You see what im talking about right? The way its setting scrollbars for individual messages.

Go to your admin panel>>Style Manager>>GO to Dark Style (Or whatever you named it)>>Scroll down to Image Paths and make sure they all go to the correct Ftp Folders. Edit the links and click save and you SHOULD see no more x's or at least less of them.

This was 1 of my main problems when I installed skins and through luck and whatever else I finally figured it out. :squareeyed:

I'm having a bit of trouble with this template, can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it?

My forum's here: www.saynotodubs.com/forums

If you look at a post you can see how the avatar and name are on the left side like they're supposed to be, but the join data, location, and post count are on the right side instead of underneath.

I'm also having a problem getting the rankings to display properly, they are uploaded and I can see the images fine in the admin panel but in the forums they just don't display.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Sadly this nice theme is using a fixed width layout, you could change the code and see what happens. Specifically <table align="center" border="0" width="750" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="border"> Just replace the 750 with 90% or whatever you want.
Actually I just tried it myself, and nothing seems to have broken, so there you go.

The way I did it was as follows<div class="cheader"><div class="header"><a href="index.php" style="display:block;height:100%;width:100%;text-indent:-1000px;">Ego Owners Group</a></div></div>That way the link text isn't hidden since it's drawn far outside the visible window and the entire header image is clickable.

Great :) seems to work fine for 3.6, just opened the XML file changed from 3.5.4 to 3.6.4 and replaced "goto=lastpost" with "goto=newpost" all you have to do :)

Also, I seem to be missing the "buttons/infraction.gif" image and "buttons/multiquote_off.gif"

Honestly at this point I'm just glad your alright. I really was concerned.
But this is not the place for that discussion. You have my email...

argh! thank god you're back Nutz, I do hope you'll port this theme soon for 3.6.x. I just love how simple this theme is, and the only reason why my vbulletin is still 3.5.x is because Im afraid of loosing this theme.

Let me know if you accept donations for this theme to keep it updated :)
