but whether cookie or user preference based... why cannot default to 100%... and make it cookie/user preference to set to non-100% mode...??

Cannot tell you straight in the face that they need to by default to show advertising right.

It's now back

Also, last time just mouse over the Forums tab at the top will have a drop down list of the sub forums. Now we need two clicks to get to the sub forums... not a big deal but if the top can have drop list upon mouse over for "Topics" and "shopping", is it possible to also implement the same for "Forums"? I miss the quick access to subforums...

This one is present, just appears differently - it's a floating thin green arrow on a transparent background that appears once you scroll past the first fold. it will appear on the right-hand bottom of the page.
can't see the floating thin green arrow
in both whether non-private/private normal/incognito modes
neither also in 100%/non-100% view

only until i turn ad-blocker off

advertisements can show at the header/footer rather than on the sides also right...??

Yesh, yesh... please wait

Like I mentioned, the usage for the forum differs from the main site.
Thus we're tweaking it as we go.

We've agreed internally to amend this point.

I hope that the 100% view is made available for people who do not log in as well.

Thank you.
You may download Tampermonkey either from Google Chrome Store or Mozilla Store or http://tampermonkey.net/

Go to the dashboard and create a new userscript, copy and paste the contents below in it. It will dynamically create the functionality to allow you toggle between 100% and the latest 1060px width. A tutorial can be found at https://hibbard.eu/tampermonkey-tutorial/

There are 2 options "100%/1060px" provided on the top right hand corner beside the blue button in the navigation bar.

The script will remember your settings using the localStorage regardless you are logged-in or not.

This script will overshadow your forum settings, but it is not permanent or related to HWZ Forum. If you find it faulty or unnecessary in the future, just disable the script or uninstall the Tampermonkey extension will do.

// ==UserScript== // @name Expand Width For HWZ Forum // @namespace http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg // @version 1.0 // @description Expand the width of the forum to 100% of the browser width // @author DKSG // @match http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/* // @require https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.1/jquery.slim.min.js // @grant none // @run-at document-end // ==/UserScript== function addGlobalStyle(css) { var head, style; head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0]; if (!head) { return; } style = document.createElement('style'); style.type = 'text/css'; style.innerHTML = css; head.appendChild(style); } function setWidth() { event.stopPropagation(); var width = $(event.target).data("width"); localStorage.setItem("width", "" + width); jQuery("#canvas").css("width", width); jQuery("#canvas").css("max-width", width); } function addWidthOptions() { var button = '<li class="nav-top-links nav-top-li-right width"><a data-width="100%">100%</a>&nbsp;/&nbsp;<a data-width="1060px">1060px</a></li>'; $("#floating-nav-bar > ul.nav-top-bar").append(button); $("#floating-nav-bar li.width a").on('click', setWidth); } (function() { 'use strict'; addGlobalStyle("#floating-nav-bar li.width, #floating-nav-bar li.width a { color: white; cursor: pointer }"); addWidthOptions(); var width = localStorage.getItem("width"); jQuery("#canvas").css("width", width); jQuery("#canvas").css("max-width", width); })();

Some of the requested items have been deployed and tested in our development server.

Just waiting for our back-end admin and dev team to sync this out to the live servers.

*cross fingers*

Okay folks, we've implemented the following updates:-

- HWZ top navigation bar has been fixed to the top; no more bobbing in/out while scrolling about.

- Fixed width and 100% toggles implemented at the top black bar (social sharing bar). This is cookie-based or session based, depending on how you are accessing the forum.

- User ID no longer shown when you're logged in to the site. It will instead only show a "Welcome" message. User ID will be shown if you drop down to access the respective user control options.
