Hi Craven! Well, I've slithered from under my rock and I'm seeking your help yet again Smile
I've designed a new site logo that is wider than the square I had previously used - so it pushes the "home, forums, etc." menus over - to the point that they are scrolled to the right.
i'm going to put the old smaller logo back until i get this issue resolved - basically, i believe it's just adding a hard return and properly moving the menu choices - i tried inserting a <br /> but since i don't know what i'm doing, nothing really happened and i'd rather not screw things up.

here's the relevant part of the fetch page (which i'd basically duplicate for the headers template:

<a name="top"></a>

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="10" border="0" align="center">

<tr>

<td class="bodyline"><table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">

<tr>

<td><a href="http://www.gadgetaddict.com/"><img src="forums/templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif" border="0" alt="Gizmo, the Gadget Addict!" vspace="1" /></a></td> <br />

<td align="center" width="100%" valign="middle"><span class="maintitle">www.gadgetaddict.com</span><br /><span class="gen">get your daily fix<br />  </span>

<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0">

<tr>

<td align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu"> 
<a href="http://www.gadgetaddict.com/" class="mainmenu"><img src="forums/templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_portal.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" align="top" alt="Home Page" hspace="3" />Home </a>
<a href="http://www.gadgetaddict.com/mobile/" class="mainmenu"><img src="./forums/templates/subSilver/images/mobileicon.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" align="top" alt="Forum Index" hspace="3" />Mobile </a>

<a href="forums/faq.php" class="mainmenu"><img src="forums/templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_faq.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="FAQ" hspace="3" />FAQ</a></span><span class="mainmenu">   <a href="forums/search.php" class="mainmenu"><img src="forums/templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_search.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="Search" hspace="3" />Search</a>   <a href="forums/memberlist.php" class="mainmenu"><img src="forums/templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_members.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="Memberlist" hspace="3" />Memberlist</a>   <a href="forums/groupcp.php" class="mainmenu"><img src="forums/templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_groups.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="Groups" hspace="3" />Usergroups</a>

An HTML line break is '<br>', and you're using '<br />'. That might be part of the problem.

thanks monger - maybe that's why it didn't work.
Err, say sister, is that a gun you're pointing at me, or are you just un-happy to see me? Smile

btw - off topic - i'm planning another giveaway on my site, i'll try to find an appropriate forum here to announce - anyway, one of the things i'm going to do is a treasure hunt in the forums - i plan to have folks search for my 2 favorite sites and e-mail me for extra entries - are you cool with me putting in able2know as one of them? maybe i'll require the slogan "ask questions, get answers" as one of the responses - i can't imagine you wouldn't be okay with this, but thought i'd check first...it could potentially drive some folks over here....

Ok, your problem is that the cells have a nowrap tag: nowrap="nowrap"

So your linebreaks are ignored.

If you remove those nowrap tags It will probably just become liquid (kinda like "shrink to fit") and you probably won't need the line breaks.

Try it and let us know how it goes.

BTW, by removing the nowrap you probably don't need to force teh lien breaks as depending on the screen resolution of the visitor the lines will break automatically.

Anotehr thing is that teh nowrap is there for a reason, it can get ugly without it so you might consider putting all those links in a single wrapping cell instead of two.
