Mini-feature update

Just a little convenience add-on I'd been meaning to do for awhile. Some people are on larger display screens and may find the site becomes too wide.

At the very bottom left of the page, you'll find a drop-down box to select different styles for ASC. Right now there are just 2 basic ones - default, and hypercells (a navigation tool, if you haven't used it before, give it a try). I've now added both those options in different fixed sizes - 1024 and 1280 for people with larger screens. Hope it helps.

That's all...

Nice gesture for those with larger screens that end up wasting hals their screens when browsing the board!

I just feel left out with my 17" 800x600 resolution monitor... I now have to drag the screen to login and see the thread informations, unfair!


Seriously tho, I can live with this upgrade but is there a way to put another tab down there for the now unlucky like my who prefer to use an 800x600 resolution on their monitors?

Thank you.

Why on earth would you use 800x600 on a 17" monitor? Besides.... that's like.... the minimum possible resolution for WinXP, 1024x768 being the standard.... God, I run mine at 1280x1024 and I'd run it higher if I could.

Edit: Just to note, I'm not bashing, I'm genuinely curious why you would want to run your resolution so low, I can't even function on it that big.

Just leave it set to default, it will be 100% of your viewable area. Is that a problem? I can make an 800 specific size as well, I just figured anyone on a small screen would just use Default view.

Actually one around 950ish would be perfect for firefox users who like to keep their bookmarks open on the side (like me!).

nice feature

I know you're not bashing, but even tho I would be able to use a higher resolution on a screen that big, if I go any higher, my parents complain that they can't read a thing because it becomes too small.

As a side note, my 12.1" laptop screen tops at 800x600, I can go above, but I have to "scroll" my screen to see the missing bottom and right side... I guess that really means I should think about changing my laptop.


So far, it does not seem to cause any noticeable problems at 800x600, except the end of the threads in the main menu (threads and replies) I have to scroll to see, but I think that's always been like that for the past 2 years or so... earlier today, the registration box at the top did default outside my screen tho, but that seems to be fixed.


Again, as I earlier stated, it's a good idea for the users who enjoy using full-screen on high-resolution screens. Keep up the good work making this board as enjoyable as possible for everyone!
