forum style error/misconfiguration...?

Don't know if anyone else is getting this, or not, but when I pull up the forums index page, the lighter blue portion of the blue bar that's right above "Latest Site News" is a bit wider than that same portion that's to the left of it, and to the right of it, being above "Author" and "Last Post".

It's not off by much, but just enough to make the forums not look quite right.

Anyone else seeing this, or is my browser going goofy on me?

Hope all that made sense...   wink

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

Ok, got a screen shot, and it's showing up right above "Latest Site News".  It's the thinner portion of the two-toned blue bar, and it looks to be about twice as wide as that same portion of the blue bar on either side of it:

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

"Latest Site News" is actually in the blue bar I'm referring to, but it's the thinner blue portion that runs across the top of that bar, not the thin blue border that runs around most of the window.

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

Now that you mention it, that cell is a bit off, isn't it?

Thanks for the confirmation, Cerebral... just wanted to make sure that it wasn't just my browser, or my failing eyes.   :shock:    smile

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

After giving it another look, I see that's there's something not right about the blue bar in the cell just to the left of it, too.  The white space between it and the border above it is different from the other bars.

Yarrr...now I see it.  Those are just a hair off aren't they?  Definitely not your imagination, just couldn't tell what you were describing before (a picture's worth a thousand words big_smile ).

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

So... is this an ArchLinux Forums bug, or would it be a phpBB issue?  Anyone here know?

Do I need to open a bug report somewhere?

Oddly enough, in IE this whitespace error isn't there, but the original one with the blue portions remains...

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

Yeah, I've looked around at some other forums using the at-a-glance mod and most of them seem to be having the same issue.

Re: forum style error/misconfiguration...?

Cool... I see that it's finally fixed.  So, I guess it was some type of style or coding misconfiguration.   8)
