XF 1.2 User info and post bit not even

Discussion in 'Troubleshooting and Problems' started by Tarynjh, Jul 24, 2013.

    I am slightly anal about this so it might be something completely stupid to complain about, but when I'm viewing posts on my site, the user info area and the post bit do not show up evenly. Sometimes the user info is a mile long while the post is short, or the post is a mile long and the user info is hardly noticeable. I feel like I'm not explaining this very well, so a perfect example can be found here.

    Is there a mod or some kind of coding I can add to make both of these match in height so that the fluidity of the threads stays intact?

    That is As Designed. The messageuserblock won't expand whether the posts are long or short.

    So then why is the user block like 10 inches long while the accompanying post is only like 3 and vice versa in some other areas? Doesn't seem like that is something the developers would have wanted. A perfect example just happened right here: http://deadfans.net/forum/index.php?threads/so-since-were-doing-this-again.175/

    It just looks so odd.

    It might be an issue with a mod I have in line, so I might have to just turn on/off mods one at a time to see if it fixes the issue.

    We simply use min-height in the postbit css to solve that.

    I'm unable to view your forum as a guest. Have you tried adjust the height?

    Hmmm, I'll get screenshots. Give me a moment.

    That's the thing, I don't know how to adjust the height. I'm used to vBulletin forum software and I've still not quite gotten used to XenForo.

    I don't know what is happening with the second screenshot and without being able to view your forum I can't debug the issue. But you could wrap some style around the .messageList .message which would contain both the messageuserinfo and message content. It's because your wrapping styling around the .message .messageInfo that's giving off this undesirable appearance of misalignment.

    By wrapping the border and such around the .messageList you can minimize this appearance sinch both the block and content are contained.

    Here's an example CSS that can be pasted into EXTRA.CSS

    .messageList .message {
    background: url("@imagePath/xenforo/gradients/message-grad.png") repeat-x scroll center bottom #E6DFD8;
    border: 1px solid #C0B8B2 !important;
    border-radius: 3px 3px 3px 3px;
    box-shadow: 0 8px 6px -6px #C5C5C5;
    margin-bottom: 15px;
    padding-left: 10px;
    padding-right: 10px;}
    the output of that css

    That is a problem with your custom style.

    The message user info block should not be expanding in height like that.

    I assumed so. But now I'm encountering a 503 error and I'm seriously laughing from the frustration. I'll get back to you guys on whether that fix works or not when the lamebrains at my server's support center respond.

    If you can provide a guest login or make the site accessible to guests I can take a look to see why it's doing that.

    I just found out, this thread actually needs a 1.1 prefix (I noticed last night that I actually do not have 1.2, when I thought I did. Boy, do I feel like a dummy!).

    @Brogan This is my testuser login info:

    username: testuser
    password: testuser

    If nothing else works, I will attempt adding a post wrapper like Shelley mentioned before. But when I began to work on that, that's when I had other issues with some table and got really frustrated with tech support since it was obvious they were robots so I decided to take a day from it before I start working on it again.

    My guess is it's a conflict with one of the many add-ons I have used ( below). The items not stylized are add-ons that are disabled:

    The cause of that long message userinfo is a bunch of rank ribbons that aren't even showing. Basically, all the images are failing to load since the path to them is incorrect. Remove those will drastically lower the messageuserinfo down to an acceptable size.

    Interesting. I turned off that mod and I'm still having the issue.

    There seems to be two add-ons (referenced as ribbon ranks) in your list perhaps the other or you've made a template edits that needs code removing from?

    Edit: The other is an online/offline mod I thought there were two.

    Try looking in the message_user_info Template since the code will most likely reside in there that will need removing.
