I wanted to know how I change the width of the side bar
Upon entering the forum on small screens open side bar can not see well the forum

I decided that if I take off about 30 pixels to see the forum and the better side bar

I'd love to get an answer from where I reduced the width of the side bar

It is what you have inside, the sideblock that has to be changed...not the sidebar.. I always use % for width of sideblocks instead of pixels.. That way they adjust to different size viewing..

You probably have to pay a fee to have the copyright info removed..Not sure though..anyhow, yeah, check your sideblocks and change the width there..

I believe this was in the instructions in the mod release.. It is in the admincp--forums/moderation--at the bottom you will see forumblocks I believe its called..

When I said the blocks though that could mean going into the templates and editing the specific forumblock template for that specific block, css or even the file depending on what kind of a block it is..some custom blocks may have the code right there in the menu but it is unlikely..

What is the block that is too wide?

almannai, your last product version 1.4.1_pl1 is not working with Lynne's product "Block - Users Online", please can you check why?

@ demonfatal: i already asked in the thread if Lynne can help with this. But no answer yet, so i also hope that almannai can help us with this problem at the end :(

I have this installed on my site, however, folks that are viewing the site in lower screen resolutions (namely 800x600) see all threads and posts like this:




Which makes it impossible for members to participate on the site.

The following Posts are by members having the same issue:


Here is a Photo of the issue, for clarification:


Here is your previous response to this issue:


-> Error occurs within ALL releases of this mod, INCLUDING the latest release. I tested them one at a time today for verification.
-> Error Occurs in Multiple Browsers: tested in Chrome, IE7, IE8, FF 3.6.3, Opera 10.61
-> also tested on Ipod & Blackberry

Unfortunately, it's not happening to just 1 person, it's happening to MANY people.

It appears that this error occurs whenever anyone views the everywhere sidebar with a Screen Resolution of 800x600 or lower (which means that it screws with peoples ability to view the sites on mobile devices as well.)

I tried changing stylevar> Forum Sidebar Width> to a % rather than px - but changing that causes the sidebar not to display At All.

Side bar always shows at the bottom of the page. Whats the best way to fix this...

This below explanation is pretty vague to me...?

Most asked question:

Q:I've installed your sidebar mod and it works fine except on the forumhome! The sidebar is showing at the bottom of the page. Any idea how to fix it?

A:It is either due to one of these:
1. you are using a custom style that is changing the forumhome look.
2. You are using a nother mod that is changing the content of froumhome before this ESB.

ESB needs to see this in forumhome
PHP Code:
<div id="pagetitle">
So to tix this problem you either need to make sure that
PHP Code:
<div id="pagetitle">
exist in the correct location or change ESB forumhome plugin to search for a new phrase.

for the latest version 1.4.1+ it looks for
PHP Code:
{vb:raw navbar}
PHP Code:
{vb:raw footer}
so if you are setting new style make sure not to remove or change
PHP Code:
{vb:raw navbar}
PHP Code:
{vb:raw footer}
location to get sidebar in the proper location.

I can't get it to show on a user profile page and i really would like that.
What steps can i take to show it?

It doesn't work anymore if you fill in a custom template.

Type: HTML
Content: xxx (won't show but anything needs to be filled in)
Custom Template: adblock

This worked earlier but with the current version the blocks with a custom template do not show up at all.

I too would like to know how I can remove the "Everywhere sidebar 1.4.1" link.
