Well I will take a look at it and see what I can do. Though I wouldn't expect too much.

I have come up with a way to fix the viewers/topics/replies box layout:

Code: Select all

.forums .c_info, .forums .forum {
	display: block;
	float:left;
	margin: 0px;
	padding: 0px;
}
.forums .c_info td, .forums .forum td {
	height: 70px;
	height:auto\9
}
.forums .forum {
	width:70%;
	width:100%\9
}
.forums .c_info {
	width:30%;
}
.forums td {
	border-left:none;
	border-bottom:none;
	padding:8px;
}
.forums .c_info td {
	width:10%;
	padding:8px\9
}
.forums .c_info td {
	border-top:none\9
}
.forums .c_info .c_info-v, .forums .c_info .c_info-t {
	border-right:none\9
}
Though I would highly recommend against using it without thorough testing. Defaults to below style in IE because IE is a stubborn mule that refuses to set tr as a block element regardless of what I do.

A clean and rather simple alternative is to use this:

Code: Select all

.forums td {
	border-left:none;
	border-bottom:none;
	padding:8px;
}
.forums .c_info td {
	padding:8px;
	border-top:none;
}
.forums .c_info .c_info-v, .forums .c_info .c_info-t {
	border-right:none;
}
All tested in FF2, IE6, and Chrome 1.

I implemented the bottom one. I'm not sure if I like that extra padding that makes the cells larger, but I'll see what others think before removing the padding.

The top one didn't work properly at all... some of the cells were on their own row.

I don't like having the cells larger, either \: with so many forums, it's hard to navigate as is. I think the best option would be to get rid of the borders while keeping the padding.
Well, you can always make two versions of the theme, right?

By "keeping the padding", you mean the original padding (i.e. before I changed it)?

If so, then I agree.

And I can make two versions of the theme, but once I start doing that, then I end up making a lot more versions for every minor variation that not everybody will agree with, and that just makes things complicated.

The 8px padding makes things less cramped, which is an improvement in my opinion. Though you could change it to 4px padding as a compromise since the original was a hideously ugly setting of 2px padding.

Another alternative is:

Code: Select all

.forums td {
border-left:none;
border-bottom:none;
padding:8px;
}
.forums .c_info td {
padding:4px 8px;
border-top:none;
}
.forums .c_info .c_info-v, .forums .c_info .c_info-t {
border-right:none;
}
.forums .c_last {
padding-bottom: 4px
}
Which should give you the same amount of vertical padding as the original, but without it looking as cramped.

...Interesting, this topic is now wider than my screen, so I have to scroll sideways. >_>

I kind of preferred the forum list with less padding, also... (Using Opera now, by the way.)

Well, I reduced the padding. As for the horizontal scrolling issue, it seems to be a problem with the <code> tag. But I don't think the issue is related to ZetaBoards at all (or any of the skins), but rather the <code> tag in general.
I have added Profile, Edit, Delete, Report, and Quote buttons. The icons probably aren't permanent, though (see this thread), but at least it's better than nothing. Please tell me what you think of them.

Oh, and On/PM and Off/PM buttons are coming soon as well.
