Feature-Request for the forum (scrollbars)

22/08/2015 at 08:38


I’m not sure if this is the right place to put this post, I hope I haven’t missed something.

Currently on my browser (Firefox and Chrome on Linux) there’s no scrollbar when I’m in the forum and sometimes I think it would be nice to have one, especially when the forum will get bigger and bigger over time.

I am not sure about how your CMS handles this but if you edit your CSS by hand only one word has to be changed 😉

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the feedback Max. A scrollbar would definitely be nice! You know how to fix it?

Well in your style.css file in line 378 you have set that elements that match .buddypress #content, .bbpress #content should have the css rule overflow: hidden; which could be changed to overflow: scrollbar; to allow scrollbars.

But: This might also change some of the other pages (about or projects) so that they also have scrollbars.

Edit: Nice code markup!

thanks @max_matti, it took a while but should be fixed now. Are you good with code? Looking for a way how to show peoples username instead of their name underneath their avatar. Makes it easier to @reply someone. Entire website is on Github

Good with code? Depending on who you’re asking. I’m currently studying IT and I’m in third term.
You can edit the bbpress code you’re using in bbpress/includes/topics/template.php [1] in line 1499 (change function) or line 1354 (comment out the line so it displays the login instead of the display-name).
If you don’t want to (or can’t) change the sourcecode of bbpress itself you’ll have to create a function that’s similar to the bbp_topic_author_link in above mentioned template.php at line 1429 and use that instead (just copy the code and tweak the above mentioned function call).

[1] I can’t find the file in your git but it seems like you’re using bbpress and after downloading bbpress I used that path in the provided zip.

Hi Thanks for that! Haven’t tested yet but seems like a good starting point. I’ll look into it, or even better. Are you able to make a pull request on Github for it?
