All content seems to be 'centered'. Is it supposed to be like that or is this temporary?

Ah.... It's fine in Firefox which is what I use, wouldn't use IE if you paid me, but having had a look in IE I see what you mean.

Not sure why it would be fine in FireFox and not IE but I'll look into it. It'll be somewhere in the theme files.

Cheers for the feedback Thumb Up

Yeah initially I thought so too, but the updated template I used put them on the right... then I thought maybe that was what we are all used to and that a change might not be a bad thing.

I'm equally more used to seeing that info on the left though. If I get a mo I'll switch it back... need to do some file edits for that.

The block 'Next 5 News Items' is not show the next but the latest 5 published articles.

One thing that's annoying for a long time is that when clicking on the title of a forum post you're not redirected to the last post/reply but just to the start of that topic.

Is it possible to apply the link currently assigned to the small rectangular icon behind the posters name to the title of the topic?

I have looked into this and played with the code in the block a bit. It now seems to do what you are after.

Tested in: Firefox and IE.

The code has now been fixed and the block has been added back into the site.

Now renamed to: Next 5 [Older] News items

Two more things...

1. The ROVworld logo at the top of the page doesn't stay where it should. It moves too far to the right and is almost centered. My current screen resolution is 1920x1200 pixels and I use IE7.

2. Before upgrading the site the p-tags in submitted news articles were replaced by br-tags when using the 'paste clear text' button in the editor. Now this doesn't happen anymore. This means I have to divide the text in paragraphs manually which is a lot of work. Can this be solved?
Maybe you have to check the css file for the p-tag definition because I think the problem is here.

Hello James,

The ROVworld logo is placed correctly now.

Thanks!

Don't know if its the website or my "upgrade" to Internet Explorer 8.

Normally I look at all latest posts since last visit. I read a message and then hit the Back button to go back to the list.

Now, when I do this, I dont get back to the list of latest ones, I get back to the list of latest ones BEFORE that, if that makes sense. Not these new ones but the ones that were new before them.

I'll try using Firefox next time to see if it does it.
