while waiting for ningto come up with a solution i came up with my own
see it here
when you use the 2 column layout the profile pages have a 3rd very skinny column that is just ugly and pointless why cant that be removed and the content shifted to the main wide column?
as it is now the default is to have discusions in that thin column wich makes it very unreadable a its only a couple words per line.
it would be best to do away with that column entirely and move the contents.
so that the profile pages match the main pages with 2 columns
ofcourse then theres the issue if what to do with the stuff in that column
id say move the profile pic and inbox area over to just above or below the signin box
admin controls below and everything else to the wide column (which then can be moved)
that extra thin column is useless and sloppy and just annoying
i meant to put it in suggestions not support ..thats what happens when u got too many people distracting ya while your trying to do stuff
I agree with you on this, bro! It looks fugly as hell.
By the way, you know you can change the category.
i really hope they do take a look at this and do something about it that tiny middle ciolumn is just useless and ugly
and profiles will look way better whith just 2 columns
i know the way the columns are set up now it would be pretty compluicated to try to come up with a css workaround without messing it up
This is why I have been requesting the Layout Change only be on the Home Page. Leave the other pages the regular 3 column..
i want it all 2 collumn for 1 then you can use the large rectangle ads in the 1 column which u cant in 3 column
and the pages and everything just look better with 2 column
I kinda agree with this.
i wan't 2 colums on my profile page
agreed. My vote too. The 3 column view is just messy and oddly formatted.
hope ning conciders it causeit really doesnt work well as it is
I agree, I really hope this will be fixed. It is a real mess right now!
I know what you mean as I originally felt like this when designing my ning site. However, I opted for a clean 3 column Facebook-inspired layout so as to create an interface users were already familiar with (Facebook). What I did was widen the first column including increase the size of the profile picture so it looks more balanced. It's amazing how a small tweak does improve things...although I guess it depends on your general site layout and how busy the columns are. For me in an overall 3 column layout I keep all the main things in the first column with the 3rd column being for the sign in box, custom navigation panel + sponsored adverts only. It seems to blend well with the profile layout...
