So here's something. I realized that the reason I always wore the item to not view post layouts is that a lot of post layouts just kinda suck, and blocklayout was never implemented here. But then I realized another thing! I'm an administrator! I can edit other people's profiles! I can just solve this entire problem myself. So I will!

Here are things that make a post layout bad:

1. They're offensively bright compared to the rest of the board. I don't want to be viewing the board and then suddenly OH MY GOD MY EYES.
2. Poor use of color contrast, for reasons rather similar to 1.
3. The layout itself is structurally broken, and it breaks the board's layout or images bleed into other people's posts.

When I do this, of course, I'll be sporting. If I delete your layout, I'll PM you and say why your layout was deleted, and what you can do to improve it. Most likely though, if it's not a problem with images, I'll do my best to improve it myself, and then PM you of any changes made. If it's a problem with images then I can't do anything about it and yeah.

Not that I intend to do this, but this is just a question out of curiosity: can you set it up so you use a certain layout depending on what the board theme is? As in, assign a layout to a board theme so that anyone viewing the board under that board theme would see your layout that is "designed" for it.

It would be pretty weird for someone's layout to depend on the board scheme, but if you wanted to, you could get creative with the CSS by knowing the name of each stylesheet and building on it uniquely. It is not something the board natively supports, though.

No, you can't. But you SHOULD be able to. Like, $layout in post headers or signatures should be replaced with an ID, so you could include a stylesheet like layout1.css or something.

Removed Changed my layout. Now that tables don't work the way they used to, it was too difficult to get that layout to arrange properly.

Start by fixing yours. The font is too small, making it a pain in the ass to read.

Though I disagree that it's illegible (12px is pretty much standard), I can't see the harm in granting your request.

Thanks!

I actually haven't seen any in a while, but I hope you're planning on unconditionally deleting any scrolling layouts.

Oh, and your new layout... default table borders? Come on, man. Shit's ugly.

That was actually a typo. A 1 which was supposed to be a 0. Was wondering why it seemed off. I should probably go to sleep at some point.

Don't forget about the people who are
Super noobish MarioLuigiman made this posts:
fail text
(biography of my life with annoying pictures)

Any time I need to hit the reply button just to see where the actual content (or lack thereof) is, I feel a certain amount of idiocy has been made.

And with Zem, scroll layouts are lame.

This may sound totally newbish, but its appropriate.

How do I make my own layout and use it here?

Put the appropriate HTML and CSS in your header/signature.

I'm sure that wasn't helpful, but it's exactly it.

That was probably my layout - for some reason, despite being valid CSS is wouldn't render correctly for Opera. I think I know why, though.

IE too, and I know with certainty why. I could PM you an in-depth explanation if you want it...

True, but at least it's sort of educational, right?

Maybe I should think of getting a new layout...

Edit: How's this?

Thanks, I'll work on making a layout eventually.

What you could do, and it's real common to do that, is to take someone else's layout and edit the values. The more changes the better, but at least you'll have something to work with.
