  • [vB4] Stretching height of background colour behind replies/views for wrapped thread titles

    On a fixed-width style or two that we have, the occasional thread title wraps around and starts a second line. This means that the replies/views have their alt colour but not all the way to the bottom of the threadbit row.

    I noticed you can do this even on vB's skins - just squish up the window so that a thread title wraps around and then you have a slight issue with the alt colour not stretching to the bottom of the row.

    Is there any way to force this area behind replies/views stats to match any additional height caused by such things?

    It's all CSS and you can't set a height of 100% on the div, so no, there is no way to do what you want. If it's a real problem, then remove the image, and if you have it a different color, make it transparent, and then you won't have that happen.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      Really? Damn. We use two colours for our columns because we've always been able to and it looks that much better. Seems vB3 could do it okay but not vB4. Is this something that can eventually be added in somehow, or is it a limitation of using a pure CSS system instead of tables? Would this not be considered a kind of... flaw in CSS? You'd think whatever God of browsers and CSS etc. would have considered this. Hmm. Guess it's off to the .org for moi.

      If anyone else can figure some way around this, feel free to let me know!

      On a sidenote, out of genuine curiosity, why did vB opt for divs instead of tables for the threadbits etc? Surely it would have made more sense to keep tabular data as a table?

        Sure it could be done if you redid the template a bit. It's just that the way the template currently is, it can't be done with just CSS.

          Ah, I still have hope, then.
