Why does my Mala theme look like this?
« on: October 06, 2016, 08:11:04 pm »
Hi everyone,

I'd be grateful to anybody that could help me with this issue I'm having.

I installed 'Space-Port Cabinet by Buried-Egg' theme and it's just not showing up correctly.

This is what's happening:

You might want to consider hosting images away from hosts with porn pop ups, click thumbnail for free porn.  :angry:

I had no idea because of my adblocker. Sorry.  :-[

I've tried switching it around many times. Didn't work. Also, this theme says it supports multi-res.

My screenshot is so low. Is there a way I could move it higher or a way to make everything fit into the boxes over there?

Open the layout editor and lock everything in place.

Hi, thanks for your reply, but there seems to be no layout editor, nor can I find one online. Could you please tell me where I could get one?

Might be because that theme is 4:3 ratio and you're running it widescreen?

Thanks so much, man! I got it the way I want now. You've been a big help.  :cheers:

Edit:
Sorry if I'm being a bother, but I have one more question.

My control panel is really small and I want it wider, but when I tried to open the editor again, the whole background was white with only the outlines of the marquee, flyer etc visible.  I don't know how to go about this now.  ??? ???

Also, it would be a big help if you could tell me how to get the cpanel wider. Nothing I tried worked earlier.

What exactly did you change to make it like you want it to be?

It would really help if you would post screenshots to help understand what exactly you mean  ???

Do you want to make the frame showing your controlpanel wider? You can simply grab the frame on either side and pull/push it to the size you want.

I did exactly what you said. I kept pushing the images and video a little bit and kept checking back and forth if they fit. They eventually fit just the way I wanted them to.

As for the cpanel and marquee, I kept changing the image size in Photoshop till it fit. For my screen size (1600x900), 395x72 for the cpanel and 351x72 for the marquee worked perfectly. I've attached the template that makes the borders not stick out.

I've just got one problem and that's this:

It's okay, though. My job is done for now.

Nice avatar, btw. Great album, but my favorite by them is 'Escape'.  8)
