Announcement: New Extension (Max-width switch)

Post by Franchise » Fri Feb 06, 2015 8:10 pm

I just installed a new extension called Max-width switch. This extension allows you the option of overriding the max-width setting that phpBB decided to make standard for the prosilver style in the 3.1.x release line. So for those of you with wide-screen monitors that use the prosilver style and want to take advantage of almost the entire screen, you can set this option in the UCP to Yes.

Right now, everyone has this option set to No. I tested it out with my regular sized monitor and it did extend the screen almost to the edge. Haven't tried it on my wide-screen monitor yet, but the instructions to change this setting are below. Please let me know if you have any issues.

- Navigate to the UCP.
- Click Board preferences.
- Click Edit display options.
- Set the 'Use maximum width' to Yes.
- Click Submit.
- 5x SW
- 31x TW
- 4x PPV
- 3x MITB
- 2x EWars
- 4x Survivor
- 2x TV Wars
- 2x Cup Games
- 3x PPV Wars
- 1x iWars
- 1x Ultimate Endurance
- 3x Jobber Wars
- 2x Bracket Brawl
- 6x Tag Team Challenge
- 1x Last Man Standing
- 1x SW Draft
- 1x Play-Per-View League

Sweet. I can even stretch it across to my second monitor if I want. Looks horrendous, though.

The option doesn't show up in my settings. Perhaps because I'm using the other format.
