Plugin List - how can column width be set?

posts: 189 Ukraine

Hi,

I'm trying to duplicate the following CSS for setting a fixed column width in Plugin List, which is available for Plugin Tracker List:

.field2 { width: 500px;}

which is here https://doc.tiki.org/PluginTrackerList#How_to_make_columns_larger_via_CSS

It's for a Date field which gets 'stacked' into three lines (less user friendly) when nearby Text Areas get bigger. I tried using the permanent name (instead of field number) in the Custom CSS area of Look & Feel but most likely I did not correctly configure it to account for this (tried parenthesis, brackets, etc.).

Also reviewed the 'Display Control Block' but no information about adding CSS to a column to display.

Thanks,
Mike

I've discovered that TableSorter gets in the way of the code above and does not allow setting any column widths - this is for both PluginTrackerList and PluginList.

So without TableSorter, setting individual column width does work for PluginTrackerList, but could not get it work work with PluginList. I tested by replacing the field number with the permanent name, did not seem to work.

Has anyone set column widths in PluginList? I went through all the Doc pages again and could not find any references. My guess is that html/css knowledge is necessary...

Mike
