New forum - please add option to show user info on the left

Post by Nash »

In the old forum there was an option to set the user info (name, display pic etc) to the left. Can that be added back in?

I'm using the Prosilver dark theme BTW, not sure if that matters

I attempted to add that but the addon didn't work so I removed it. I am pretty much refusing to install addons that require actual system changes to the software, and the addon in question required editing the style files for both prosilver (unacceptable, as that's a base style) and prosilver dark (which would've been okay since that's an addon style).

FWIW this looks to be an easy style change:

Code: Select all

.postprofile {
	float:left; /*this is normally "right"*/
}
I don't know how difficult this would be to do as a board toggle, but the above should work fine as a client-side styling option if necessary.

This is injectible so it might be possible to just throw this into a skeletal extension and call it a day.

Now the question becomes: how easy is it to create an extension? 🥴
