That's on a fresh 4.1.8 default style and as you can see if you have long thread titles or forum descriptions it might run over into other areas... I feel that this can be easily adjusted using CSS and would depend on if your using a Fluid or Fixed width style and if fixed width it would depend on the width... less would mean more adjustments so it's all aesthetically correct and a larger resolution may show no errors as you initially see in the screenshots the author posted.

The problem here is that your categories are not actually categories..
They not "act" like a category, they act like a forum.
tomorrow I will try figure out how to apply my hack in this situation.

Even if on fluid - the problem is how it would look to people who use 1024x768, which is about 20% of the internet users.

Well, I can suggest 2 solutions:
identify the user's resolution, if it 1024 then
1. hide the sidebar
or
2. set it back to 1 column

If you would like one of the options,
I'll try add them in the next version

I'm also having the same issue with everything bleeding over. I think all my widths sets are all fixed not fluid. Though where in the css does this edit exactly? I think i can do some editing on my own to fix it to match my forums needs

this will be great if you can manage which categories you want to show side by side instead of the entire forums.

You can also do this, please bear in mind something had to go so it looked halfway decent when using a low resolution so thread/post counts are removed and so are the forum action links i.e. subscribe/rss etc.

Edit template rellect_2_column.css and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add this under:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It should help clear up the overflow for now until RellecT has time to sort it out himself .

Hmm try disabling the subforum management mod you have installed perhaps the one by Valter? Refresh and if it now shows correctly you know it's a conflict between the two otherwise it's something else either way you can disable/enable the one you prefer until a solution is found.

The hack should work in fluid width and in fixed width.
please send me a url of your forum and I'll check what the problem to fix it.

anyway, the css template is: "rellect_2_column.css"

I'll try implement it in the future versions.
