After applying the various scripts and Adblock page elements blocking, the new forums look very, very good: <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1kh7PYdJTceOSrCTQRbaifku3nd7ke1" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1kh7PYdJTceOSrCTQRbaifku3nd7ke1_thumb.jpg" border="0" /> <br />c Forum Index Page <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1415Q4LZA1vpwD2HcpwBMdXhf5WjU" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1415Q4LZA1vpwD2HcpwBMdXhf5WjU_thumb.jpg" border="0" /> <br />c Forum Thread page <br /> <br /> No more avatars, no more "More Stuff Like This" cr@p, no more Community Experts labels, no more Popular Discussions, no more Top Participants, no more points ratings, no more total numbers of posts for each user, no more nonsense. <br /> <br /> My warmest thanks to Eric, Mark and Zenor, who provided the scripts and block filters for this excellent workaround.

Ramon,
do you have a link to these add ons, or a link to the forum where they are discussed originally?
Thanks! Chris

In this very section of the forum we're in right now, and in the Preview of the new forums. :)

Do separate searches on Eric, Mark Boyd, and Zeno.

There's a longish thread titled "Screen usage" thread in the new forum Preview where all these scripts are discussed, explained and posted.

Remember that the posts in the Preview will be lost at the end of the preview. So feel free to post here, too. These messages will be migrated to the new system and live on in infamy.

Original names are lost since I only copied the messages to a text file, but here is what I am saving

If you're using FireFox 3, I may have a partial solution to the width issue.
Use this link to get started and then follow the steps below.
http://userstyles.org/styles/16217
Step 1: Download the Stylish Add-on from the link on the page & restart FF.
Step 2: Install the Adobe Jive Forum style override from the above page using the "Load into Stylish" button.
Step 3: Enjoy?
If you ever need to temporarily revert back to the Adobe look, just uncheck the "Adobe Jive" item in the active styles list of the Stylish icon.

First, you need the Stylish 0.5.9 FF plug-in which you can get from:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2108

Then Eric and Mark Boyd's Scripts

There are two parts:
Eric's "Force Full Browser Width":

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("adobeforums.adobe.com") {

#jive-wrapper {
width:100% !important;
background-color: #ffffff !important;
background-image: none !important;
}

}

--------------
And Mark's (which I have named "Death to Avatars" in my installation!

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("adobeforums.adobe.com") {
#jive-wrapper {
width:100% !important;
background-color: #ccc !important;
background-image: none !important;
}
#jive-body-main {
background-color: #ccc;
}
.jive-thread-reply .jive-thread-reply-body-container {
background-color: #ddd !important;
}
.jive-author-avatar-container {
display: none !important;
}
}

--------

I loaded both of them although Mark has now posted a combined Script:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("adobeforums.adobe.com") {
#jive-wrapper {
width:100% !important;
background-color: #ccc !important;
background-image: none !important;
}
#jive-body-main {
background-color: #ccc;
}
.jive-thread-reply .jive-thread-reply-body-container {
background-color: #ddd !important;
}
.jive-author-avatar-container {
display: none !important;
}
}

Eric - Unfortunately I don't have much time to play with it more this weekend, but as you can see it is an easy game to play and open to anyone. All you need is FireBug, which allows you to modify the styles of a web page dynamically and see the results and Stylish to implement the changes you like permanently. (And a little CSS know-how, of course, but it is pretty easy to guess.)

These are not scripts of any kind, but user style sheets. They will work even if you turn off all scripting capabilities in the browser. Here is where I found it in IE7.


1. Save this to a plain text file with the .css extension

2. Tools->Internet Options->General

3. Click Accessibility

4. Turn on Format documents using my style sheet

5. Browse to that file and OK.


Just like Safari, it will effect all sites that happen to have identical rule selectors (names). If you visit another Jive forum and this messes it up for you, you will need to go back through that process and turn it off.


Here is the "Tired Eyes: no avatars" version combining Eric's and my rules. (added hiding avatars on the message index page)


#jive-wrapper {
width:100% !important;
background-color: #ccc !important;
background-image: none !important;
}
#jive-body-main {
background-color: #ccc;
}
.jive-thread-reply .jive-thread-reply-body-container {
background-color: #ddd !important;
}
.jive-author-avatar-container {
display: none !important;
}
.jive-author {
padding-top: 10px !important;
}

Also, don't forget to turn it off when/if you are looking for aesthetic changes Adobe may doing.


(Couldn't get that ordered list button to work in the RTE)
