Changing width of member column on message pages


Active member
We have some members with one word membernames that extend to around 15-16 characters. Consequently their membername wraps to a second line on thread pages with messages. How can I make the member column a little wider in order to prevent this automatic wrap from happening?

I'm sure others here have run into the same issue. Thanks for the help.

Thank you for the help Floris, much appreciated. By the way, if I wanted to see a list of all the usernames say with more than 15 characters, how would I search for that? I'm assuming it would be with phpadmin. If you can help with the exact steps that would be most appreciated.

By the way, I noticed recently that went archive only. What led to that change?



select * from table order by length(column);

char_length() perhaps is better.

You could probably do something like: char_length(column) > 15

The reason for xenfans was because of personal reasons that forced me to refocus my time. Among other things.
