trivial edit

Post by PhilW » 14:43 Sat 23 May 2015

At the top of every page under the main heading we have the line "ThePortForum.com is for those passionate about port, and for those new to it. We hold lots of Port tastings – please come and join us!". This line may wrap depending on the page-width viewed, and on wrapping continued below the logo (out-dented) instead of below the start of the sentence.

Two suggestions:
1. Put the second sentence on a second line, below the first; this will avoid the wrap in most viewing widths.
2. Align the second line (whether wrap, or deliberate as per [1]) to that the line starts aligned with the first line.

1 isn't possible - phpBB does not permit line breaks in that field of the board settings.

2 needs to be catered for in the style sheet, which JDAW might be able to do.

re: 1, I have never used phpBB so do not know how their field entry is managed; however, you could try adding <br> (or <br />) following the full stop of the first sentence. It's a little cheeky, but could theoretically insert the html break into the generated html code, depending on whether the data configuration/entry methods allows it.

2 is probably the better, but potentially slightly more complicated solution.

<br> doesn't work :-(

Wait until the style sheet is completely rebuilt. Scheduled for Easter weekend 2015, as that is when DRT will upgrade the forum software.
