Hello


Am having a play with the site's structure and trying to find the width control for the panel's width but is seems like they are hard coded into the script?



thank you

It's a config option, although actually none of the themes we just released use it any more.

you use blocks of code to replace the panels on some themes, right?


I was just looking at Leadership-theme and you have created external config for the panels

Take a look at Adminzone >> Setup >> Configuration >> Theme options

… first two entries

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

The set-up configuration option sets the width for both panels.

Is there an easy way to have a slightly wider right panel only?

It's kind of there to force a point to IE6, and personally I regret it a bit. I'd do some rewriting in your GLOBAL.tpl and get rid of it. I think you can simplify this down a lot…

Code

{$SET,right_width,{$?,{$IS_EMPTY,{$TRIM,{$GET,panel_right}}},{$?,{$GET,helper_panel},{$?,{$HIDE_HELP_PANEL},26px,275px},0},{$PANEL_WIDTH_SPACED'}}}

If you always have a right panel, and never a help panel, it can simply be {$SET,right_width,300px} for example.
