Hey Guys,

I'm the developer working on getting comment templates working for GL 1.3.9. We've had some problems getting different browsers to work with different techniques. If you could go to this web page and tell me which of the 3 tests you see indented and which you don't (compared to the "Control" word which is not indented). Also please let me know which browser and OS version.

Something like:

Windows 2000, IE 6.0
1. not indented
2. indented
3. indented


People with old/uncommon browsers would be especially helpfull.

Thanks,
Vinny

This is a repeat, but:
Win2k
IE 6
1. Not
2. Is
3. Is

Note: for me the word Control is not indented in any case.
"Table..." and "DIV...", the second lines, are indented.

You might want to clarify what is supposed to indent, the first line or the second line.

For Control word then it would be:
1. No
2. No
3. No

Question: Why not use nested ULs, rather than more tables?

Vinny, big fan, love your stuff. First let me get this out of the way:

WinXP:
Opera 7.02:
1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes

Next, let me say that I've noticed you've used option 3. Could I persuade you to rethink that? I've got several users running IE, and I use "nested" comments by default for everyone. My theme is blatant variant of "SmoothBlue".

Now, when there's an indented comment, the IE doesn't resize the table for the "padding-left" style in the tag. Practically, this mean that 25, 50, 75, etc pixels are cut off the right side of the text, making it impossible to see the entire comment if it runs more than one line. This is most noticable on themes like "SmoothBlue", which adjust to browser width.

I fixed it easily by going to option 2, and embedding the "padding-left" style in a tag, which I wrapped around the inner table. For anyone else wishing to hack a fix:

In comment.thtml....

Replace:
Text Formatted Code

<div class="comment" style="padding-left: {indent}px">

...(Middle Stuff)...

</div>


 


With:
Text Formatted Code

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"
     class="comment">
  <tr><td style="padding-left: {indent}px">

...(Middle Stuff)...

  </td></tr>
</table>


 


I know, I know, another table within a table, but it works flawlessly in IE. Opera always worked correctly.
