News text - line length
I have an issue were the window jumps and re-sizes when I have forum news fader enabled. I know that I have seen it somewhere on this forum, how I could change the line length. I have searched and I am not able to find it. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem.
Tony

Re: News text - line length
forum jumping is usually caused by the design of the header, crowding a large image or text in to a table column is the most likely reason.
 When the News Fader is enabled, it cycles thru the News lines entered in the Admin Center.  When news text is short, usually no problem, but when a longer line is displayed, the text "wraps" within the table column, enlarging the height of the column.
  The choices are either make short News items or edit the tables containing in the header to allow them.

Re: News text - line length
Captain John,
Thank you for the quick reply. I am not sure what has happened but the text table seems smaller and I am not sure how it got changed. For example the greeting message Good evening Tonyl, you have 16 messages, and no new messages is now on three lines and it use to be only two lines. I think this is located in the Template in admin, but I am not seeing it. Please advise.
Thanks,
Tony

Re: News text - line length
the actual line does not have a set width.. the <td> simply uses 100% of the space available..which is the entire width of the table row its in... unless you have changed the html.... then the width of the table row containing the logo should be looked at.. as it has a width set for the logo..( in the <td>)
Have you made the logo larger?

the table in the template you need to find is
Code Select All
<table class="windowbg2" width="100%" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0" border="0">
	<tr>
		<td align="left" valign="top" width="1%" height="40">&nbsp;</td>
		<td align="left" valign="middle" height="40">{yabb uname}<br />{yabb im}{yabb admin_alert}</td>
		<td align="center" valign="middle" width="460" height="100" rowspan="2"><a href="http://www.yabbforum.com"><img src="{yabb images}/yabblogo.png" alt="YaBB - Yet another Bulletin Board" title="YaBB - Yet another Bulletin Board" border="0" /></a></td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td align="left" valign="top" width="1%" height="60">&nbsp;</td>
		<td class="small" align="left" valign="top" height="60">{yabb news}</td>
	</tr>
</table>

LoneWebSurfer,
Thank you for your help. I had a duplicate line and I just couldn't see it. It was only after you sent me the code did I see it. Thanks again for your assistance.
