Can you widen this forum please?

Is it possible for the developers to widen the display of this forum?
Right now it sits in the middle of my screen taking up about one third of screen.  If it adjusted to the width of my screen it would mean I could see more messages and would not need to scroll so much. (Yes I am that Lazy).
Seriously it looks really amateurish yet if you look at the forum of SMF site on which this forum is built it is perfect.

Re: Can you widen this forum please?

Already raised a long time ago but fix not implemented
Temporary fix  is as follows
Since I use Firefox I fixed it by creating a user style sheet as this
Quote
#header-wrap + #content,
#header-wrap + #content .tborder {
  width: 100% ! important;
}

Re: Can you widen this forum please?

I have a 1600x1200 screen with a secondary display at 1280x1024, but I don't want the forums widened.
Firstly, long lines are more difficult to read. Ask yourself why newspapers use columns.
Secondly, I don't run my browser in full screen mode. I run multiple applications in multiple windows & like to see more than one at once.
If you don't like scrolling down, see if your monitor has a portrait mode & turn it through 90 degrees.

Yeah, I've got a 24" widescreen monitor (you can see if on the CSC webcams if my big head isn't in the way!) and I had to amend the stylesheet to prevent the forums just appearing in the middle of my screen.

Re: Can you widen this forum please?

So you can. You can even see the purple bar at the bottom of a post stretching all the way across your screen.
Each to their own.

Re: Can you widen this forum please?

I only have a 19" monitor - BOOO couldnt afford a 22.
But, back to topic, I voted none of the above, but I didnt mean too... I need it widened. I dont like looking at white. Its, well, plain. How about an option where you can pick a style sheet, or upload your own?
P.S. I saw you type that Tongue
