New Flex Layout for WSO...

Just a quick announcement...as many of you will now notice, we have switched to a flexible theme which allows the forum to flex up or down depending on the size of the screen to use more real estate and make reading the forums and blogs easier.

The new theme still needs plenty of cleanup so please be patient and any help reporting bugs would be much appreciated. When you point something out, please say what browser, desktop/mobile, and PC or mac.

Thanks and hope you like it!

Makes sense if shrinking the window, but there should be a ceiling too - having the text spread across 80% of the screen is not ideal.

agreed, we need to get a max width on the left column enabled...not sure what that should be...maybe 1,000 pixels...think it was ~700 before. So it will flex up to max ~1,000, down to min of ~700 (until mobile theme when it drops to 1 column).

Thoughts?

I like it with that left social bar, huge difference, I'd say stick with it

I like it. Some of the preview text gets cut off when you hover over certain topics. I am on a PC using chrome. @wallstreetoasis.com

I like it for reading posts but when I am in 'recent posts' looking for a topic it is way too big. Just my $.02

@"General Disarray" and @"Cruncharoo", thanks guys, we're on it and 100% agree...new iteration that will place some more max widths and help center the log/tiles and nav menu better -- changes coming live in next 1hr. stay tuned!

Probably just need to add some padding to the left on Nav menu and right justify the right side of the nav menu to balance it out. All in all looks good.

What the hell? The site layout is completely messed up on Chrome - is it only me or are others facing this problem too? The logo and the modeling/interviews/resume help etc. buttons are taking up over a quarter of the screen on all pages, so when I open a thread, the beginning of the thread is cut off. Also, on the home page, I can't see the name of the OP anymore for some reason (I hope that's not intentional).

I dunno how to attach a pic here with a comment so I'm sending a pm to @wallstreetoasis.com with a screenshot.

Edit: Whoa. My system crashed while saving the screenshot (blue screen of death) and when I restored Chrome after restarting, voila! WSO sorted itself out. Well, cheers! :D

FYI -- the content on the right (Highest Ranked Content, Forum Topics, etc.) intrudes on the body of posts when using an iPad.

Looks great in desktop/laptop, but it's awful for my galaxy s5... The heading bar of recent posts, messages, etc is now like 3 times as long.

Using Google Chrome on a Mobile PC. The top bar with the logo, modeling, interviews, etc. links is noticeably huge. Plenty of width but very restricted on height.

Yeah, I'm referring to a non-mac, non-linux laptop. Not mobile as in phone/ipad.
