its not possible with "simple edits" to the html/css as the organization, structure and practices used in prosilver over complicate it. Even the smallest change ripples so it requires a lot more fore thought and re-working when it comes to handling things especially when it comes to the responsiveness and the ways its achieved in prosilver.
Okay, so i take it back, it is not as simple.
Well, i guess the simpleness would be relative for people. There are designers that would know how the style works and what to change.
, The reason i suggested to trim the titles was to match the title in the available space, because it looks messed up being squeezed into that tiny place.
I later on suggested that if we are against trimming( which i now see that trimming wasnt the best solution), then we should just make more space, by removing the Replies, Views columns.
As you said, "the topic title is likely one of the most vital pieces of information when viewing a list of topics
The titles are more important than the Replies,Views statistics. Some of their space should be given to the topic-title-column imo.
In all of those screenshots you posted, the topic-title column has much more available space to hold its title in a nice-cleand and comfy way.
phpbb provides more title characters that it can hold in the available space it has. It should just provide more space to the topic-titles.
The way Xenforo did it looks fine to me, with the statistics into the same column. But the we_clearblue seems to do it better.
The topic-title column keeps shrinking and resizing while the Replies, Views, Last post
columns stay fixed, when they shouldnt as the title is more relevant than these statistics. They should be responsive around the title, not the other way around.
I think this discussion becomes stressing for all of us, so, if no one has anything else to add, and think there is a need for change, ill get a break.
