problem wiht themes and right hand column

We have a titkwiki 1.9.2 site that is working reasonably well.

One problem is that we would like to have modules on both the left and the right column but sometimes the user is only able to see the right column if they scroll horizontally.

My question are:

  • what themes work most reliably in most browsers?

  • does the USER DECIDES option work for the right hand column? and what is the best theme?


Can anyone show me a site that uses USER DECIDES for the right hand column

I can see the side columns consistently in all the included Tiki themes, using Opera, Firefox, and IE on Windows, and Firefox and Galeon on Linux. If you or your users are having trouble in this area, it is likely due to something specific at your site, as far as I know.

As far as I know, the column-flipping code is independent of the theme, but is buggy at this time. The code is in the tiki.tpl template file and should work the same in all themes. But there appears to be a bug in the conditional statement for column flipping. As I wrote in a recent post here — to you or somebody else with the same question — if you replace "user" in these statements with "y", then the column-flipping works in all themes (well, I didn't test them all, just a few), overriding the Tiki Admin setting and forcing column flipping — that is, the controls show no matter what the Tiki Admin setting for column visibility is. As things are now, with unmodified files, when I turn the feature on, I only get the column flipping on admin pages and some ))MyTiki(( screens — no matter what theme.

I'd be interested in seeing that, too. wink I could show you one, but only after editing tiki.tpl as mentioned.
