Why are the post texts here all centered?

Postby Scepcop » 13 Mar 2012, 21:02

Is anyone else experiencing the posts here as all center aligned? It's weird. It seems to only happen on IE browsers but not on Firefox browsers. I wonder what's going on.

Are any of you experiencing this too? If so, what browser are you using?

I posted earlier that I also had the problem but only with IE. Works fine in Chrome.

do you need to upgrade the software?

I'm centered and using IE--as we've stated in another thread...

No I have not upgraded the software cause the forum works fine and doesn't need to be upgraded. It's too tedious to upgrade every time just for a slight unnoticeable upgrade.

I will ask the phpbb support forum about what to do about this.

Ok I checked the phpbb support boards and figured out the problem. In my overall header file, I didn't have closing tags for the centering tag. I just added it in, and now the forum threads appear normal left justified in my IE browser.

Are those of you on IE viewing this thread normally now? Is the text left justified?

Thanks.

Just on this, a bit of constructive criticism: I get that its a pain to make changes to the site, but I will say that the way you have this forum configured, it's not as user-friendly as many other forums. You've probably noticed that traffic isn't exactly spectacular and new members rarely hang around. If you are interested in growing the forum again you might want to consider making the software competitive to other forums out there.
