    There are a couple of reasons. Firstly, this forum is a legacy from before we actually had a team of developers. Secondly, sometimes out-of-the-box is as good a solution as there is, and then the monster is too big to rewrite.

    We actually do a LOT of customising but we use existing features and plugins where we can - saves dev time!

    As far as the OP goes, we have this on our list of things to sort out - I'll get to it as soon as I can. Promise.

    Indeed. The width is currently set to 700px instead of 480px.
    There is a solution in the making for giving the code boxes 100% width.

    The forums are fun by staff and we don't have direct access to the source... and the programmers have other priorities at the moment. The only thing that I can do for you is to give you a css that will make them wider in your browser (it will work if you're using FF and Stylish or similar)

    That will work until the change is done

    ok thanks - but I was hoping it would be a quick and simple fix like over at webdeveloper which is also powered by vBulletin

    i can live with them the way they are.

    The code boxes over there are 900 pixels wide. Over here they used to be 480 pixels wide, but that was recently changed to 700 pixels wide. Did you miss that?
    The reason we don't want them to be wider than 700 pixels is that the layout of the forums will break on monitors with 1024 vertical pixels and less.
    Webdeveloper doesn't really have this problem because they show the postbits on the top of the thread, instead of on the side as we have them here.

    That being said, we have found a solution to give the codeboxes 100% width, so they behave exactly like the [QUOTE].
    But, as malona already pointed out, the devs have other priorities at the moment.

    Just have patience, it'll come one day

    hmmmmm

    I've been here nearly 3 months and the code boxes and the width of the code boxes in my IE8 (my default browser) has not changed.

    But I just did a test login in my FF3.6 and yes the code boxes are noticebly wider - much better.

    Ok, from hereon you won't hear a peep out of me anymore on this one and I'll use FF when logged into sitepoint.

    Thanks for the work done so far on widening the code boxes

    So, wuzzup with IE?

    IE7 and IE6 haz the problem too (didn't check IE8 since Kalon did).
    (Compare FF)

    I guess IE6 I can understand, since it's totally retarded all the time, but 7 and 8? Surprising.

    Someone at SP didn't notice the styles embedded in the head of each page:

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    pre.alt2 { width:480px;# }
    pre.alt2 { width:100% !important; }
    * html pre.alt2 { width:480px !important; }
    *+html pre.alt2 { width:480px !important; }
    </style>
