Post Swap post profile and post content panel placement.
I believe you guys can now edit CSS from the admin control panel, and I think you all hate the new alignment, so... here's the offending CSS:

Code:
.postprofile {
   /* Also see tweaks.css */
   margin: 5px 0 10px 0;
   min-height: 80px;
   color: #666666;
   border-left: 1px solid #FFFFFF;
   width: 22%;
   float: right;
   display: inline;
}


Make it float: left.

And...

Code:
.postbody {
   padding: 0;
   line-height: 1.48em;
   color: #333333;
   width: 76%;
   float: left;
   clear: both;
}


Put float: right instead of float: left.

I believe that'll do it.

Post Re: Swap post profile and post content panel placement.
After digging through the user control panel, I'm not seeing any place to view/modify CSS - can you give a more specific location? I'm not sure if I'm blind or it's just not available to my account.

You need to be an admin and have access to the Admin Control Panel.

Styles tab, Theme on left bar, Edit the theme.

Post Re: Swap post profile and post content panel placement.
Huh, it doesn't look too terrible...

The big issue is flipping the image. Also I forgot to fix margin and border. Let me work on that.

EDIT:

Code:
/* Poster profile block
----------------------------------------*/
.postprofile {
   /* Also see tweaks.css */
   margin: 5px 0 10px 0;
   min-height: 80px;
   color: #666666;
   border-right: 1px solid #FFFFFF;
   width: 22%;
   float: left;
   display: inline;
}
.pm .postprofile {
   border-right: 1px solid #DDDDDD;
}

.postprofile dd, .postprofile dt {
   line-height: 1.2em;
   margin-right: 8px;
}

.postprofile strong {
   font-weight: normal;
   color: #000000;
}

.avatar {
   border: none;
   margin-bottom: 3px;
}

.online {
   background-image: none;
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
}


/* Poster profile block
----------------------------------------*/
.postprofile {
   color: #666666;
   border-right-color: #FFFFFF;
}

.rtl .postprofile {
   border-left-color: #FFFFFF;
   border-right-color: transparent;
}

.pm .postprofile {
   border-right-color: #DDDDDD;
}

.rtl .pm .postprofile {
   border-left-color: #DDDDDD;
   border-right-color: transparent;
}

.postprofile strong {
   color: #000000;
}

.online {
   background-image: url("./styles/prosilver/imageset/en/icon_user_online.gif");
}

/*     

/* Post body styles
----------------------------------------*/
.postbody {
   padding: 0;
   line-height: 1.48em;
   color: #333333;
   width: 76%;
   float: right;
   clear: both;
}

Post Re: Swap post profile and post content panel placement.
Having gotten use to the default layout (users shown on right), I can actuyally say it makes for better readability. We are all English speakers; we read from left to right. With users shown on the left, it's extra work for your eyes.
The modified layout looks ugly.

Also,

The bit that says "online" clearly must be on the left if you are to keep this change.

No it didn't. It's still botched on my end. The "online" bar is shown with the buttons above overlapping it. It just looks ugly.

That's because grin hasn't actually applied it yet.

Obviously. Until everyone else can see it, it's still not fixed.
Also,

the width of the section on the left that shows user info, is to much. Perhaps make it less wide. Think about people who have their displays set to low resolutions. This is screen real estate we're talking about.

The width is the same, actually. Just a border is missing that the above code fixes.

Grin can lower the postprofile width if he wants, though, but he has to raise postbody if he does.

That said, the width is based on a percentage. It'll look fine on low res.

Post Re: Swap post profile and post content panel placement.
Yes, that's what I just realised. I run at 1920x1440, and have my opera window maximized. Change res to 1024x768, and it looks fine.

Why a percentage? Just set it to an optimal fixed-width that remains static regardless of res. Just because I'm on a higher screen res doesn't mean it needs to use that space. It's just wasted space.

Remove from view the bit that says when a person joined the board, and you can set this fixed width lower; even more screen real estate can be saved.

What some boards also do is have post text *below* where the user info is shown, so it can span the entire screen width. What you could also do is disable avatars, so just a banner of text is shown for user data (or make it so only small icons can be used for avatars, like, 64x64 pixels).

Doing these things will make using the board much more friendly on mobile devices running on extremely low resolutions. The interface for posting/editing will be a nuisance on such devices, but at least reading threads will be easier.

I used to run my own bb3 forum, and I did these things. No one joined though (the board was only up for about a week before I pulled the plug, didn't really want to continue maintaining it after changing my mind).

Also, smilies can be disabled; then on the submission page, the box for entering text to go in your post, can span the entire width of the screen. Again, this is for better supporting low res mobile devices.

Post Re: Swap post profile and post content panel placement.
I'm not whining at all. I'll happily accept it the way it is. I'm just saying is can be better.
Obviously it's up to you. These are suggestions only.

EDIT: Ah yes, online bar is on the left now. That looks better.

Yes, prosilver is shit. I like the "minimal" theme personally (byuu added that theme to his board after I asked him to). One small problem with it is that links are the same colour as normal text (when I ran my own forum, I used this as the only theme, and had links red, normal text black. I also used a much darker gray for the backgrounds. I also completely disabled avatars).

I never really got round to offering byuu my custom .css file for it. I don't really care to make those changes again just to offer it to him, since I mostly use the serenity theme now.

The default theme on byuu's board, "serenity", is also nice.

User Statistics under a users profile are not left aligned under the header. EG: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=107641

Well, consider that we've been on phpBB2 for years, and user info was always on the left.

and while we're at it, can we at least fix the CSS so the smilies are to the left of the input post box? Please and thanks.

No, you were X Prime, then Metatron, and now Tallgeese. You may have been Tallgeese on some old copy of the ZSNES board though...

In any case, the funny factor is probably the same as Ducksheep.

Yeah, but the wwwboard was a totally different beast.
