A New newthread look!

Version: 1.1
Released: 21 June 2009
Manual Template Edits: [1]
Optional Edits: [1]

This small modification changes the way your newthread template looks, and feels. It compacts the message area, with the additional options area. Sometimes I find my users don't even know those additional options are there, so this makes browsing easier from a users point of view.

[OPTIONAL]
To get the most out of this hack I suggest you install Princeton's GTSmiliebox - Move Smilies Below Editor. Once installed, find the Message Posting Interface Options in the vBulletin options and I suggest changing the Smilebox Total Smilies and Smiliebox Smilies Per Row to 25 for best viewing!

[TEMPLATE EDITS]
Open Style Manager -> xx Your Style Here xx -> Edit Templates -> New Posting Templates -> newthread

REPLACE THE ENTIRE TEMPLATE WITH THE FOLLOWING

[OPTIONAL CHANGE]
Open Style Manager -> xx Your Style Here xx -> StyleVars
CHANGE Message Area Width (pixels) to 600px

That's it! Your NEWTHREAD template now has a fresh look and feel to it! If you have a complex, custom style for a small donation of $5 I can configure this newthread template around your theme. If you would like this please private message me

Want your newreply template looking the same? Downloads JamesC70's Modification here.

Have fun, and remember if you use it please click Installed! Your support is appreciated

Looks great and works great except for one small problem. Nothing big at all but makes it look a little ugly. I have the check for similar thread mod installed. So when I paste the thread title and the screen refreshes I get a big gap on top of the tags text box. Any idea on how to fix that? Thanks

I had this problem without the tag suggestions turned on.

I added valign="top" to the left side's table data tag, which fixed it for me (highlighted in red in the codebox below).

I also changed the width to 335 pixels, so that the right side message editing area can float as desired to fit my fluid width style (highlighed in blue below).

A few notes:

I reverted the FORUMRULES template, as the changes here affect anywhere that box appears... including SHOWTHREAD.

It shouldn't be hard to tweak this to replace the NEWREPLY template for consistency. I'm also toying with the idea of tweaking it for private messages (PM_NEWPM template), replacing the entire Control Panel left-side menu when someone's composing a PM.

I think this mod can be applied to newreply template as well.

Good point, I'm heading off to work now but will come up with a solution when I get back tonight.

As per PM - Go for it

How to make the left half boxes (where the attachment, tag box are) a bit smaller?
Find (newthread template)
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and change 50% to something smaller, like 30%. Find
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and change 50% to the amount remaining to make 100. So if you set the first TD to 30%, this one needs to be 70%.

I think this mod can be applied to newreply template as well.
Correct, something is in the works.
