Remove This Side Column
Ok, so I've filled out the page of preferences that comes up when I click on the "Remove This Side Column" link and clicked "Save Choices". What should be coming up next? I'm getting my Subscription page.
I also haven't removed the add column on the right side.

I've not come upon this at other sites before, what am I doing wrong? :help: ;)

I'm looking into it.

Rumi 12-10-2011 08:06 PM

Tx, what did you come up with?

oldognewtrick 12-10-2011 09:06 PM

Rumi, if you look at the top of the right side colum, the is a link to "Remove Side Colum" if you click on this it will take you to a page where you can save preferences. Scroll down and click on the section to remove side column.

TX is knee deep in baby diapers and assembling porch furniture right now, he may have been a little distracted from lifes events. If this doesn't work...welll we did the best we could.

I don't see that option? Where is it?

TxBuilder 12-12-2011 01:03 PM

I couldn't get it removed. It's not compatible with our current software, sorry.

You can gon to user control panel (CP) left side of the second blue line from the top of the page, click on edit options, scroll down to where you can remove side column and scroll down and click save. I just did this and it works.

All I see is
invisible mode
vcard download
receive email
thread subscription mode
private messaging options
visitor message options
post elements - sigs, avatars,images
thread display mode.
threads per pages.
thread cut off date
wiki link
time zone
start of week
message editor interface.

Try it as a non moderator. It could be only available to mods.

At least in Firefox at home the column is 1/3 the size it is when I use IE8 at work.

In the control panel, do you have a section called "Thread Display Options"? It should be the 3rd section down where you can make selections. Block Side Bar is the last option.

The only option under thread display are

post elements - sigs, avatars,images
thread display mode.
threads per pages.
thread cut off date
wiki link

None of them have an option to block the side bar.
