Subject: Re: Expanding column width when viewing in Summary mode 

Anyone who knows me knows I (ab)use elog a lot.   And this one is another of a long list of cheats and work arounds rather than modifying the code properly.

In summary mode, the top row are titles, and if they are long, they will dominate the width of that column.  Similarly if they are short, if entries under that title are either non-existant or even shorter.  Sometimes entries below the title will dominate, e.g. entries under "Date" title.

I assume your entries under the title in question are things like more than one word, such that they get split into two rows within that cell.  Sometimes that can look very untidy.  However, if you want the column wider than the title is given, you can pad out the title with " " (without the "").  Either on both sides for a centred title, or on the right for left justified.  Or between words if the title has more than one.  (Sorry for this edit, I hit submit button rather than preview).

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your prompt follow up.  I did try commenting of the width statement for listtitle2 and also reducing it to 40% but it did not work.  I restarted elogd daemon and I don't see the columns changing.  I also tried putting a percentage number (40%) for listtitle1 just to try and no change either.  Appreciate your help.

Thanks.

You can't directly change individual columns, but you can reduce the "Text" column. This is done in themes/default/elog.css. Search for "listtitle2" and change or remove the line "width:100%". This makes the text column narrower, leaving more space for the subject column.

Hi,

I'm trying to expand the Subject column, when viewing in summary mode, and couldn't find any documentation for it.  Is this possible and if so, how would I do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Illam
