I think the restrictions on the width are intentional.  If you compare with articles on big news sites, you will see that they have very generous margins around the text.  I believe the idea is to restrict line length to make sentences easier to read.

My first recommendation would be to use the zoom feature on your monitor.  I have a 1440p monitor and view most websites at 150% zoom.

 

And I have a 100000 x 50000 phone and I see all the things without a zoom... please refrain from comparing other sites that offer simplified view tabs for other devices coded in, in comparison to a person that talks about their 4k monitor. It's definitely not the same. As you can, for example, zoom the text in Mozilla Firefox with ctrl + mouse scroll... but it won't move the margins, or edit the pictures to make them bigger.

This wysiwyg-only interface it really, really difficult to work with.  I can't figure out how to un-mangle this post.  Given the choice of a pure BBCode interface and a wysiwyg-only interface, I'd happily take the former, even without helper buttons of any sort.

Further style change has removed the sidebar

div.ipsLayout_sidebarright {
    display: none;
}

Now I am able to see the forum the way I want it 😎

it show me this: https://prnt.sc/m3nsk3 notice that site says that I'm no longer logged user but when I hit browser "Back" button, I'm logged user.

Attachments should now be fixed.

I'm afraid there is no BBCode editor.

Regarding your post, I can see that it got mangled, and things are a little wonky when you go to edit it.  I was able to unmangle it by copying and pasting the relevant pieces to reassemble the post, then replacing the mangled version with that, but I didn't save my changes.

One thing I've noticed when working with block elements like quote boxes is an occasional difficulty to insert information between them when they are right after one another, or to insert information before one that's at the start of the post or after one that's at the end of a post.  To work around that, you can insert a paragraph somewhere else and then drag the little Move symbol on the top-left of a block element to reposition it.

This ?

The forum architecture might have changed, but the topic 2819 is this there, google's "site:https://www.gibberlings3.net/ 2819"  ... search brings that up.

Yes, you can manually convert links for the time being.

Old Topic Link: https://www.gibberlings3.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=2819
New Topic Link: https://www.gibberlings3.net/forums/topic/2819-a/   (you can use anything in place of the 'a' in '2819-a')

If I type a user name and add the "@" afterwards, it isn't converted to a tagg, like this: @jastey. Is there a way to make this happen? (Because I'm lazy).

Also, there is a lot of external scripts/graphics etc. imbedded: fonts.googleapis.com, secure.gravatar.com, fonts.gstatic.com, i.imgur.com, content.invisioncic.com, twemoji.maxcdn.com, www.shsforums.net (the last one sounds especially dubious ;) ), are we sure we need all of those and they do not grab info they are not supposed to pass on?

And a question: how do I make it that it jumps to the last unread post if I click onto a thread title, e.g. from the "Latest Posts" list? EDIT: Ah, found it myself, I need to click on the "dot" next to the thread title.

Here's the irritating bit: if you start typing an @ symbol, a list of users will pop up. You have to click on the name in the list, otherwise it'll just render it as text. It won't automatically convert @jastey to a mention, I have to select your name when I start typing it, like so: @jastey.

@CamDawg If it can't be helped then it's fine, I was just hoping there might be ways to render it to a tag. Thanks!

Well, can't you just say @jarno mikkola, and be done with it ? Yes, it's a different... but ... How about... <picture> + link and so on.

@CamDawg, @jastey you can do it with the keyboard too. Use up/down to select and enter to pick. :)

 

any news on the url rewrites?
