    PS page layout

    Advertisement



    Normally I don't have an opinion one way or another but thought I would make this post to generate opinions.
    I noticed today the layout changed just a bit. If it all possible I think it would be great to have the option to fill these nice new wide screens many of us are getting these days.
    When I view PS 1/2 the screen is empty and the content is aligned in the center. On the right & left sides of my screen I have a gray empty area.

    A narrow layout or wide layout option would be neat.

    Is there anyway to get the sidebar stuff(meet the editors, online contacts, etc.) back to the right side ?? Liked having all the latest news and articles on the left.

    The Mobile Browser does not show any of
    the side menus and keeps the main page
    content clean and easy to read.

    Hmmm? I seem to have mixed emotions on the new style home page. Wide screen is best in the forum but bad on the main page. It's lopsided and just odd? However when I switch back to the default page view (narrow, centered) the main page looks better and does not bother me. On the other hand the forums pages are less desirable b/c i'm not using most of my screen.

    Hahaha, seems I have a 50/50 split.

    I don't have a preference either way. Just takes a little getting used to when new changes come.

    I just want the side bar back to the right side and the left side the articles when viewing from PC. That's my only issue with it.

    I liked the side panel better to the right - I don't know if it takes up more space than it did before or not but it seems too wide to me too. It's like 1/3 of the display is taken up but it and that's too much IMO, especially since I have an empty inch of space in both the right and left margins. Maybe it that display used more of the available display space....
