A new post not showing any results

I have noticed that the Beta Version does not show the number of replys to the original post on a forum.
Here is an example from the top of Speakeasy at 1:30am July 30.
In this case there were 20 replys. Nothing showed on the Speakeasy Forum interface.

Anyone else notice this?

It says "Post 1 of 20" in your screenshot...

And it also states "Total posts: 20" next to the page numbers. The former is actually missing from Tree view at the moment, a known bug, but otherwise it is as it should be.

Thank you John. I am not sure what is happening with this interface at all. I will leave the tech work up to you.
The original did not indicate how many posts there were at all. ZERO!
Say for instance, 20 replys to the original post.
My screen shot was one out of twenty.
Why did the original post not list how many posts there actually were!!

BETA?and all will fall into place?
IT Engineering has a way to go with CNET.
All in all, not that bad for a BETA Version.
I wish them luck.

John, improve it.

Happy

I wrote my own CSS file to shrink the header, add a Tree view selected post outline, widen the entire site to fit my widescreen monitor (designing for 1024x768 is a nice standard, but leaves too much white space at higher resolutions), etc. I like the new site, but I still wanted to put my own touch on it. Here's an example of what I see. (Link)

Thanks for the preview...

In reply to: Already have...

Your example looks really good on my monitor. I have delayed using the CSS file pending completion of beta. I like how clean it is without all the wasted space at the top and the sides. Grin

It may make no difference but I decided to wait for the final product. I have printed the CSS instructions for use when the time comes.

Thanks,

Too much white space

In reply to: Already have...

I often wonder, but I don't lose any sleep over it, why Windows users feel the need to fill the entire screen with a window.
For example, a web page that has been tooled for 1024 X 768 has no information outside of those boundaries so why make the window fill your whole screen?

Does your CSS file cause any distortion on the way things, designed for the "standard", display?
No stretching?

Just curious

No distortion...

In reply to: Too much white space

All I've done is expand the boundaries of each element, focusing on the primary content, to achieve the widescreen effect. Thus, the nav panels, images, etc. all maintain the same dimensions while the main content of the page, such as a news article, has more room to expand horizontally. (In short, text is not wrapped around to the next line nearly as often.)

I do not think it's just a Windows perception, though. If I visit news.cnet.com at my resolution of 1440x900, almost half the screen just displays white bars down either side of the page. Yet the news article and the replies thereto may go on for 11 vertical pages. By using my own style sheet I use up the full width of my monitor, otherwise wasted, which in turn reduces the vertical length from 11 pages to perhaps six. It's not that big of a deal, but it's certainly nicer looking in my opinion, making full use of a high resolution widescreen monitor while reducing the amount you must scroll.

That makes sense,

In reply to: No distortion...

and would certainly make for easier viewing.

Thanks
