Forum hard to read in a small window

Posted 13 September 2010 - 12:58 AM

This is what I'm talking about:

Any way to lose the 2 panel on the right side? Don't really need them.

ps. This happens in latest stable Firefox 3 as in latest Chrome.

There is no option to just remove those columns. You can use some Firefox tools to remove them temporarily perhaps. My advise would simply to increase at least your horizontal resolution.

I have resolution 1920x1080. But when I program and I need some help I have eclipse put on half the screen and on the other half the screen is Firefox. So each window gets about 960px in horizontal resolution.
Shouldn't this be enough for any forum?
Also the Firefox tools that you were referring to, mind telling which they are?
thx

It's a addon classed firebug. Mess around with it and see what you can do.

adblock with adblock toolbar. Choose to block an ad, click on one of the sidebars, and increase until sidebar is gone.

Seems like this guy needs another monitor. That's the best solution to an issue like this in my opinion. Already got 2? Toss another GPU in there and throw that third monitor in place!

That is probably the best option given what I've heard from everyone with dual monitors.

I used 2 monitors on my home PC for a while, and as I think about it, I can't for the life of me remember why I took that second one off... 3 monitors on the work PC, at least my bosses will think I do a lot of work.

thx man that partially worked. The two sidebars have been removed. But the problem is that the main window does not expand into the now created empty area.
Any workaround there?

Also would it be possible for the adds to still load(so this site still gets revenue), just as long as I don't see them?

found the line responsible for removing 2 sidebars:
 <div id="content_hold" class="with_sidebar">


I just delete everything from 'class' onwards.
and also delete this element:
<div id="sidebar">

How do I make it permanent?

You can use GreaseMonkey to write a script for any dreamincode page to remove to appropriate elements.

I was also thinking of posting something along these lines, however it was more for a mobile theme and user agent detection. This could really be useful, i know at work i often logon via my mobile ot check forums and its hard to read threads with the columns eating the page - thats my suggestion
