The way it is now is not intuitive and borders on confusing if you're a first time user of phpBB. See the screenshot below.

If the the forums and subforums are separated better (either by capitalization, bolding, a combination of the two, larger font, etc.), it would be much easier to find what you're looking for.

I would also maybe make categories all caps as they are on the main page

Does look same on my forum, maybe it's a thing here because they have a lot of things custom.
You have to view a page that does not have who is viewing this.... For example, click View new posts, or View your posts.

Agreed

Could use some work, but not convinced of the screenshot.

What are you suggesting? A bigger space between the button and the footer?

Yes, but not really at the top of my priority list.

Keep in mind that not all top-level items are categories. It's possible to have forums without a category at all. And categories can also be nested deeply.

It's a simple enough change

line 562 of common.css

Code: Select all

.dropdown-left .dropdown .pointer, .nojs .rightside .dropdown .pointer {
    left: auto;
    right: 10px;
}
change the 10 to a 15 or 20 or whatever. Not sure where else this is used though.

In many places. Modify this class is a bad idea.

Yes, i used 19 in the photos. The same path of classes must be only used by the jumpbox, but i may be wrong

I know how to change it, don't worry. Just have to take into account the various versions of this (normal, extended, scroll) * RTL.

I'm asking if this looks right/good, and if it should be addressed. IMO I think it's too close together, especially compared to the text parallel to it on the left side of window.
