    Are there any plans to clean up groups? The PHP formatting is all over the place, images overlap and message via Skype seems to extend down the screen.

    I'd like to see it fixed :)

    I'm probably wrong, but I don't think it's MDL's fault since they're still using vBulletin 4, not 5.

    Once again, probably wrong. It could be the skin atop the site, then again I'm not using the default MDL skin.

    One of the major annoying issues at vbulletin is their sloppy CSS. Things remained misaligned and had never been fixed.
    The history of vb 4.X was full of disappointments. I had to fix things over and over again when a new version came out.

    No proper concept noticeable @vbulletin...the version 4 was/is horror....not sure about v5.
    I gave up to fix alignment related issues....the sections which are not directly forums related are still the way vbulletin have left them.....not properly aligned...and images get not resized to fit...
    Vbulletin implemented new 'social' features into the forums soft without never have done it properly...

    When I have time I have a look at least to the most noticeable things...

    I wouldn't say it's MDLs fault, I'd blame vBulletin. For a premium forum builder it could have been better. Even though addons can cause a lot of issues from small time developers :)

    Yen:

    I think the Skype icon is missing or corrupt which causes the strange text down the screen on "group members":

    [​IMG]

    I'm also sure it has been missing for some time. It's a shame these new vBulletin version are so expensive, I don't really see the worth seems there is cheaper stuff that works better. I understand why you never upgraded, I guess.

    Just for reference, I'm pretty good with CSS and PHP if you should need any help in the future. I've built a few forums and had to correct annoyances like this.

    When analysing that it calls an external link which is dead. mystatus.skype or something.... Skype has changed the way to get the online status:
    https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA...atus-on-the-web-in-skype-for-windows-desktop?

    And vbulletin never fixed it....
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...us-is-now-dead-microsoft-changed-how-it-works


    So it would be my work again...but...:rolleyes:

    Edit: OK well I did it no outdated remote status just local icon.....at least it looks good now...



    Next one to fix?:biggrin:;)

    Yen thanks, I appreciate the change, that fixes the "group members" annoyance!

    I think all that need to happen with groups is the max image dimensions need to be capped.
