How to change the width of column right and left.


Recommended Posts

I know I am getting somewhere but I can't seem to find it. It order to change the width I think I need to find BOX_WIDTH. I changed it once but for some reason the width changes only when the user logs in and once they login out the width changes back to the normal size. How to I keep everything one size. Say I want both left and right to be at 200.

You are correct. It is the BOX_WIDTH setting you need to change in includes/application_top.php. If you set it to 200, in this case, and your column displays something that is wider than that, the column will adjust to the larger size and then change back on the next page (if that page doesn't have the larger size). That is probably what's going on.

On or around line 119:


define('BOX_WIDTH', 150); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125)


Set the 150 to whatever you want.

Thanks for all the help works great. I think I know what the problem is but just can't find where I changed the width of the right side. I deleted something and place the actually width I wanted. Now I want to change it back to BOX_WIDTH. I think its on the index.php that I did the change.

Ignore my last message I know what I did. On the index.php file I deleted the BOX_WIDTH and entered numbers for width and I didn't upload the new file. Just one more question is it a good way to upload files using Internet Explored ftp. All I do is drag and drop seems easy but I'm a little worry its too easy.
