    how to change from wide to narrow screen ?

    I cannot find it.
    My screen has changed to wide by itself on this site but i didn't do it.

    ^^ Join the club... What changed? (I tried the logout and log back in but that had no effect.) I would like to get back to a narrow format - otherwise the column spacing is a mess when jub is in a wide window.

    Re: how to change from wide to narrow screen ?

    I’m on my iPad, and the wide screen thing is not a problem. Indeed I don’t use a conventional computer anymore except for playing the occasional dvd, or recording something, etc. Indeed, I’m in bed right now, the lights off, and Im having no problems at all apart from the speed of this site which seems very slow at the moment.
    Clearly the sites settings have been changed, and I don’t think we, as users, can alter them in any way.
    Right now I’m thinking about another forum which has undergone a very major change, and we, who use it, are all having to learn how to use it from scratch. Thankfully that’s not the case here.
    So, I’ll now try and sleep.
    Goodnight all.

    Re: how to change from wide to narrow screen ?

    There used to be an option to have a narrow theme under My Settings > General Settings > Miscellaneous Options > Forum Skin but it doesn't seem to be there anymore. It might have been an older theme that was removed with the latest update. I have no way of knowing since I don't manage this forum, but that's the likeliest explanation I can come up with. The admins might be able to install a narrow theme so we can get that back again. I do prefer the narrower theme as lines of text don't get very long.

    Hello,

    The entire site is what is known as a responsive design. So to make it less wide, you just change the size of your own browser window. So instead of having your browser window wide or full screen just adjust the size of your own Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera, etc. browser window and everything will automatically adjust to fit the size of whatever width you want! You can actually control the width all on your own. Can you try it and see if that accomplishes the same effect of what you are desiring?

    Let me know!

    Re: how to change from wide to narrow screen ?

    All web browsers on desktop computers should be able to be displayed windowed (i.e., not maximized), but those on tablets, like iPads, likely can't be resized. This is a handy way to have the website width narrowed, but comes at the cost of reducing the width of all other browser UI, including the tab and address bars at the top. It's not an ideal solution. Adding back the fixed-width theme would be wonderful, but I can see why the forum admins might not want to or be able to do that.

    I give up,
    reading from far left to the far right of the screen is harder and slower.

    Re: how to change from wide to narrow screen ?

    Bryce, thank you very much.

    just a little background (which you may find tl;dr)
    In the last couple of days I've paid a lot more attention to the margins that most of the web sites I reference use. I have been surprised at the size of both left and right margins on the majority of these web sites where the majority of the info is in a single column (e.g. Google).

    The "responsive design" that you (bryce) mention is what Microsoft Word calls zoom="Page width". It's a useful feature. I use it all the time in Word. That's an environment with typically a single document is open in a window. In a browser, with heavy use of tabs (e.g. I typiically have 25-100 tabs open concurrently), the browser window is more of a container for all the web pages I'm currently using. Anytime I need to adjust the width of the overall browser window to improve the readabiliy of a single web site, it takes away the value of tabbed browsing. With the "narrow" skin active, the jub web pages behave similar to the majority of the other web pages I use regularly.

    Thanks again.

    Well, for me it's a little narrower, but not enough for my liking and pretty much everything else still looks odd. Being here is really hurting my eyes and giving me a head ache

    lol - it looks like you have a valid point. The narrow in the "old" version of jub was noticeably narrower than the narrow in the "new" - aka current version of JUB. In the old version the main body was 966 dot wide and in the new version its 1114 dots wide (on my monitor). Thats 148 dots which at 72 dpi works out to be almost exactly 2 inches narrower.

    The picture below shows sections of two jub web pages. The top one is a jub web page (using narrow) that was saved in 2017 (i checked a saved page from 2018 and it was the same). The lower section is part of a jub web page from today, also using the narrow skin. So the "new" narrow is less narrow than the "old" narrow.

    The "new" narrow is narrow enough to satisfy my needs, although jub may want to consider returning the definition of "narrow" to what it was previously.
