Side by side
#1 04-05-2012 
I have a question. I'm trying to get some boxes to show side by side in the empty space. They show side by side, but the first box resizes everything around it. Example:

I really don't know what I'm doing wrong for that to happen.

fancy - using threadfields_inputrow Big Grin

I never do. BUT, it looks like you might want to close the tbody and table after the img url thing. How is the HTML in notepad? Do you have all the tags closed.

Also, no idea why, but that problematic TD has a colspan of 4. That might be causing an unwanted effect

Oooh. I thought the colspan is what tells it to be side by side.

and whats input row? It just came in the html so I left it. I think I might make it a dropdown though. I don't like the way it looks all scattered like that.

Try looking at the music forum layout on mybb hacks for a nice looking new threads layout.

Sorry for butting in, but I just wanted to add (even though Yin probably has noticed it already) that what colspan does is make a cell span several columns. colspan=4 means the cell is four columns wide.

If I may be so bold as to expand Lee's example a little to illustrate what colspan does:

Code:
<table>
<tr>
<td> somestuff </td>
<td> somemorestuff </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan="2">
arg
</td>
</tr>
</table>

Indeed I am. I'm one of those old school coders whose favourite HTML editor is Notepad. Wink

And seriously, if there's anything HTML-y I can lend a hand with, I'd love to! Big Grin
