Twin columns on forum home and forum display

As the title says this mod simply puts a column on both sides forumhome and forumdisplay pages.

Great mod for google skyscrapper ads.

Installation:

Import the product.
Edit navbar and footer templates. (See below)




Find in navbar template:

Add the code below to the first line of footer template:

Footer template after adding the code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.





It is recommended that you should edit doc_minwidth to 950 and doc_margin to Top=0 Right=10 Bottom=0 Left=10 .. so that you have more space for forums and contents won't get squashed.


Once you have installed the modification edit "SevenSkins - Templates > ss_twincolumns_left_contents and ss_twincolumns_right_contents to put your advert or contents in the side columns.


Finally don't forget to click install.


Thanks to Lynne for additional css plugin code which I used in this modification.


PS. Do not use my side column mods together use only one.

Columns are 170px.
How wide are your ads ... if they are 170px you need to make then approx 15 px wider, to allow for padding.

What would one need to edit to get the boxes to come exactly inline with the Main Catagory section?

Plus, i'd want the yellow bar at the top to go over the boxes too, can this be done?

(see attached mockup)

Welcome message will cause problem and if you manage to sort this out then other forum pages will not align properly.

Try adding "{vb:raw ss_twincolumns_start}" to the last line of navbar template and you will see what I mean.

I'm impressed. This is tremendously useful.

I'm building our 4.0 launch on a private server, so I haven't marked installed yet, but will once we go live with the upgrade.
I'm trying to get the left column to 240px wide and leave the right column at the default. I followed your directions in posts #14 and #17, but I haven't been able to get the columns (left/right or both) to change size.

Also, I'm trying to move the forum statistics into one of the boxes in the column (my site's 3.8 example here) but when I try to move the stats from the "What's going on?" box, it doesn't display what is in the variables, any thoughts on this?


Sincere thanks,
ZXeno
