Immense code box breaking forum layout in a 1680 x 1050 display:

Broken. Small enough?

How can it be 'much better!' if the damn code no longer works and it doesn't?

Ironic (not) that this is in the same post -

If so, I'm guessing that's because you haven't put this into your userContent.css file yet -

Code: Select all
 /*.......Frank Resize wide post pages - put in userContent.css.........*/
 div.postbody {
   max-width: 650px;
    overflow: auto !important; }


...point is, that is a thread for userChrome/Content.css, so if people don't already know how to add .css then why are they reading the thread?

If you're going to mess up my code so it no longer works, then at least put an 'Edit - messed up by trolly' edit on both the posts, so people don't think I write code like that.

I can add that. Until the code box supports horizontal scrolling something has to be done.
Interestingly, this is not the look I left behind. I broke all lines at the same column.

Someone has changed the posts too (and after me).

Yeah, and something was done -

Code: Select all
     /*.......Frank Resize wide post pages - put in userContent.css.........*/
     div.postbody {
       max-width: 650px;
        overflow: auto !important; }


It is the 4th line that is providing both vertical and horizontal scrolling. Not exactly an unreasonable solution on a thread that is already specifically about that very subject.

As it is, there are now 2 useless posts sitting there. I suggest you PM smsmith, if you want it edited.

Sorry chaps.
My error, as I did not see that trolly had already edited it.
It was way wide when I saw the report.
&...not knowing that Frank had added the "other (rectifying) .css code".......
well. Image
Mucho apologies.

I'll stick to large images in future.

No worries, it happens.

I've edited it back as it was, as anyone editing that needs to copy the original code first anyway just so they can test that their edit is OK.

My advice though, is just to leave it alone. Not like we use base64 image code that often and it's notoriously tricky to truncate without wrecking and...it's all on 1 page of a specialised thread, so the guys who need it will already understand why it's like that. Plus, there is the userContent.css fix there already anyway.
