Maintitle Suggestion


Guest Brett B

Recommended Posts

I think in general it looks really good, but here is a suggestion for in topic view. When there is a topic description, the maintitle looks awfully tall and kind of looks awkward. How about making the descriptions right aligned on the same line; maybe even italicized.

yep...maintitle pretty much needs a separate line on it's own. Start narrowing the browser window on the test thread i made below and you'll see that anything aligned to the right would have issues.

That's actually one of the nice things about the way it's done. even when you narrow the browser window everything still wraps nicely within the bar.

That is awesome! In IPB 2.3.6 that stretched the page but now it is excellent!

What happens when you have a very long topic title? ;)




It becomes even uglier? :ermm:

I think the problem isn't so much the position as it is that ugly grey maintitle bar making everything look bad... I'm fine with having the class there, but I'd really like the grey bar gone from the default skin before the final release...

Interesting this thread is made today... because I've been doing some more SEO work on my 2.3.6 installation...
Semantically correct markup requires H tags in the right place, the right order and surrounding the apporpriate title... Making the topic title the H1 header is a very easy skin edit...

Topic View --- Topi_Page_Top...

In the following line, change the bold tags to H1 tags, as shown here...

<td width='99%' style='word-wrap:break-word;'><div><h1>{$data['TOPIC']['title']}</h1></div></td>


You will probably need to set up some kind of styling in your css file, so go ahead and style the H1 appropriately for your forum.
... and see my signature for other 2.3.6 SEO ideas.

I know there is much more effort going into making IPB3 more compliant. I'm sorry I've not been following the progress because I've been so busy lately and I'll be on holiday for the whole of April... but I'm sure looking forward to getting my hands on a non-encoded release of version 3... I hope it's as good as anticipated... but I notice the topic title here is in h2 tags... I wonder why? I can see that there is a H1 in the page source but it doesn't appear to display... did I miss it?

Well a while back I submitted a bug report asking if you have to have a h1, h2, h3 etc... and showed them that on some pages they have more than one h2 or h3 and they marked it as working as intended or not a bug. If you do have to have them and not skip one or duplixcate one it would be nice to know since I have already skinned a largeish app and I just always use h2 or h3 for the tables even if it has multiple tables.

Estranged, it is a good idea to include them. They are heiarchial; there's no limit on how few or how many you can have on a page except that they should be descending in order of importance. h1 for the most important things--apparently the site name here in IPB--h2 for the next important things within those [the topic or forum title on here], h3 for notable things under each h2, and so forth. It's essentially putting a webpage into bullet-point form for search engines.

You can have as many h2, h3, h4 etc tags on a page as you like. You should only have one h1, however. :)




Technically, there is nothing stopping you from using more than one h1. It's just a general consensus that you should only use 1.
