Couple of small things

Hi there,

There are just a couple of small things with the Reboot theme that I would like assistance with, if possible.

1. As per the screenshot attached, is it possible to add some CSS to allow the search, new/ updated topics and select forum bars at the top to appear all in one straight horizontal line? I am aware, this is probably due to the narrow width of the container in my WordPress theme, but any fix would be greatly appreciated.

2. When you click the 'Action' button on mobile, the menu appears right at the bottom of the page. Is it possible edit this somehow, so that the menu is more apparent?

3. When logging in via the forum, you enter your login details and are redirected to our login page on which you must enter your login details again. Is there a fix for this or could it be a clash with our login/ register script? If so, is there anything you can suggest?

Thank you in advance for your assistanceUntitled.pngImage Enlarger.

Let's take them in the same order:

Search/QuickLink Controls
It doesn't look like you need to resize by much so I would try slimming down the search box just a tad. If you are not already using a child theme (and the third item you asked about may determine whether you need to) then I would go to the forum admin > Themes > Custom CSS and add something like:

#spMainContainer .spSearchForm input.spControl { width: 130px; }

and saving of course. Try it and see if that is enough or too much and adjust as necessary.

Mobile Sliding Panel
Always possible but you would need to edit both CSS styling and core JavaScript code. We tried a lot of different ways and that way seemed the best in terms of using the reduced real estate. Some of the menus that can show up down there (like the forum tools menu) can get quite lengthy. Personally I would advise against trying as it will cause an update issue for you but if you want to go ahead I can probably dig out the places you need to look at.

Login Button
It is a coincidence but I don't believe we were ever asked this particular question until a couple of weeks ago and now up it comes again! Can I take the easy way here and ask you to read through this thread:

This works by using the forum login button to direct straight to your own form. However, because of this question we have made a change for the forthcoming 5.7 that will allow for the use of our login form but directed to your own processing logic. I hope this helps...
