There has been a major change to this code seeing as though the recent 3.7.2 upgrade rendered this code useless. Even better now though is this code is more streamlined! What does this do? Well it will fix that annoying lopsided postbit right template area and make it nice and neat!

First:
You will need to add a CSS variable in the additional CSS Definitons area in Styles - All Style Options - Scroll Down

Add this definition:

.postbittop {
background-color:#FFFFFF;
color: #000000;
padding:7px 7px 7px 7px;
border: 1px dotted #E0E0E0;
width: 292px;
}
Note these settings can be changed and adjusted to suit your needs

Next:
Find
<td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
<td valign="top" nowrap="nowrap">Directly Underneath Add
<div class="smallfont">
<div class="postbittop" align="right">


The align="right" will align your text inside the box. So change this accordingly.

This is for the Original Postbit only. If you want a forum with both Postbit and Legacy duplicate your style, and copy and paste the postbit code into the legacy code or visa versa depending on your style settings on the VB options.

Long sentence!

I get a white background is this because the CSS background in your table is set to #FFFFFF - which is white.. ?

Compared to this one.. which is without your adjustments..

Do you think it looks better on white ??

The white box looks great. Maybe play with the border color and style to give it some flare.
