  • Hey Raylan.

    I'm quite picky when it comes to working with code, and I'm finding the gaming footer we've had implemented a little odd. Actually, this was a mistake I was guilty of until someone explained it to me. Towards the end of the template code below there are two sets of noinclude tags. For some reason, this arrangement causes line breaks to be inserted in between the two sets, and this is rather inefficient and also visually disruptive. Consider changing it so that there is only one set of tags rather than two alongside each other, as shown from the example of the last five lines turned into four lines at the end. Thanks.

    {|align="center" style="padding:0.5em; margin-top:1em; width:95%; background:; border:2px outset black; box-shadow: black 2px 2px 1px; border-top-left-radius: 30px; border-bottom-right-radius: 30px;" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="5"

    • Oh, that's weird :P I hadn't even noticed - thanks for pointing it out! I will change all the footers today.

    • Ah, I think I've identified the other half of the issue. An extra line break is being created because <br clear="all"/> is a line below the previous division, which is the end-table wikitext. Yes, for some reason this matters! I've had painful experiences with getting templates to display correctly in the past, and the reason was almost always as insignificant-looking as this! Consider changing it so that the break is moved up a line as shown in the second example. Hopefully that should be all!

    • Yeah, these little things can be annoying to deal with :P Thanks for the extra set of eyes - I'll make the additional changes today :)
