This is my first vB template hack to be released, So enjoy it and i hope it helps some people out! :)

In your FORUMHOME template find:
<table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_new.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_new_posts]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_no_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_no_new_posts]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old_lock.gif" alt="$vbphrase[a_closed_forum]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_is_closed_for_posting]</td>
</tr>
</table>

Replace with:
<!-- MichaelJM's vB Template hack -->
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_new.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_new_posts]</td>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_no_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_no_new_posts]</td>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old_lock.gif" alt="$vbphrase[a_closed_forum]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_is_closed_for_posting]</td>
</table>

Hello,,

Thanks nice hack :)

but I have one small question :

Why does the code have :
</table>
</table>
twice ?

when I remove one of them, it shows the table with no 100% width !!

Edit: Cleaned up the code, should be fine now.

This has been on my list of things to do for a while. I hated all that extra blanks space at the foot of my page. Drove me nuts. (Cause I am a picky sod). Thanks bunches!

Thanks for releasing this little modification... it's improved my style. I had to make some changes for it to fit in with my style though (basically I just removed the class="tborder" part from the table tag, and moved the log out code to the footer template).

How about doing the same for the icon key on the forumdisplay page?

thanks

just installed and looks much better - had to change code to make it 100% width and to move the log out below though but looks much cleaner

I did pretty much this exact thing (without an explicit css class for the table border), I came to this forum to see if I could get away with releasing it first. Well, beaten to it. :(

This should be part of the VB core IMO, it's such a waste of space otherwise.

Maybe you can release something like this for the forumdisplay page, instead of the forumhome. ;)

I've figured something out for the forumdisplay template icon key, as far as I can see, it works on my site, but feel free to improve it if you will.

Find in the FORUMDISPLAY template:

<!-- icon key -->
<if condition="$show['threadslist']">
<table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/thread_new.gif" alt="$vbphrase[new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">$vbphrase[new_posts]</td>
<if condition="$vboptions['usehotthreads']">
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/thread_hot_new.gif" alt="<phrase 1="$vboptions[hotnumberposts]" 2="$vboptions[hotnumberviews]">$vbphrase[more_than_x_replies_or_y_views]</phrase>" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">$vbphrase[hot_thread_with_new_posts]</td>
<else />
<td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>
</if>
</tr>

Hope you didn't mind me putting it in this thread rather than start a new one, as it relates to the icon key anyway.

Got a question, I can't find the code

<table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_new.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_new_posts]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_no_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_no_new_posts]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old_lock.gif" alt="$vbphrase[a_closed_forum]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_is_closed_for_posting]</td>
</tr>
</table>

in any of my skin, and I'm running 3.0.8.
