I'm switching to a three column layout, and want to change the width of the 'Last Post' column of ForumCategoryList.

As it is, when the whole object is squeezed into a center column there's too much wasted space, so I want to make that column more narrow.

I've tried adding

<HeaderTemplate>

<tr class="forumRowTitle">

<th colspan="2" align="left" class="header1 headerForum" width ="70%">

<YAF:LocalizedLabel ID="ForumHeaderLabel" runat="server" LocalizedTag="FORUM" />

</th>

<th id="Td1" class="header1 headerModerators" width="1%" runat="server" visible="<%# PageContext.BoardSettings.ShowModeratorList %>">

<YAF:LocalizedLabel ID="ModeratorsHeaderLabel" runat="server" LocalizedTag="MODERATORS" />

</th>

<th class="header1 headerTopics" width="4%">

<YAF:LocalizedLabel ID="TopicsHeaderLabel" runat="server" LocalizedTag="TOPICS" />

</th>

<th class="header1 headerPosts" width="4%">

<YAF:LocalizedLabel ID="PostsHeaderLabel" runat="server" LocalizedTag="POSTS" />

</th>

<th class="header1 headerLastPost" width="5%">

<YAF:LocalizedLabel ID="LastPostHeaderLabel" runat="server" LocalizedTag="LASTPOST" />

</th>

</tr>

</HeaderTemplate>

but Forum column will only grow to about 50%, and LastPost column won't get any smaller than it is.

suggestions?


Enjoy!

Take a look at the Links in the LastPost column there are two long, thats why this column didnt get smaller. You could try to make the links smaller or add word-breaking.

Try to add this to your theme....


.yafnet .lastPostCol {
      word-wrap: break-word;
      width: 5%;
}

That didn't change the column width of the forum list, but it DID change the last column width of the topic view....weird

I can address the column header with .yafnet tr.forumRowTitle th.headerLastPost but can only change the TH color, etc; I think I need to be able to add the break-word thing to the contents of the table, not the TH?

If so, is this possible?


Enjoy!

Try this...

.yafnet .headerLastPost,
.yafnet .lastPostCol {
      word-wrap: break-word;
      width: 5%;
}

It worked on my site with my theme

Thanks for looking into this; must be a problem on my end; your changes effect my default.aspx?g=topics display last column perfectly, but have no effect on default.aspx?g=forum display

Thanks for bringing this up, I have the opposite problem - want to make the the topic list lastpost wider, since I have overridden the lastpost.smallfont element...

It depends what you actually add to your theme, with the code i posted above it should work on both pages.
