While we are discussing trivial aesthetic considerations, is there a way to get the time to display properly. You have leading zeros before 10am (or 1000hrs) on the 24 hour clock, not on the 12 hour clock. There is no such time as 01:30 p.m. (and 01:30 a.m. whilst not ambiguous is also wrong).

Aesthetic or otherwise, this looks much better:

Funnily enough the hard line under post title throws me more then the white line that divides posts.
Not enough to bovver me though.

Nor did the clock till Andy mentioned it

You could do something like that, but I think it makes it look a bit more cluttered IMO.

FYI: The line under the title of each post is actually blue, sp's fav ;D

Here's my 0.02p

Tikli's suggestion seems a bit extreme, but it does illustrate the point
Sparx's idea of a slightly more pronounced separator is a little too subtle

Maybe something in between?

Just widen the white gap between posts 6 or 8 points.

Et voila?

There's a couple of elements styling that contributes to that white gap, that's 2px, 1px is slightly thinner but there's no middle ground  ;D

cp or other admins, in the style manager find the current style and modify it. Add this to the end of the CSS file (after the last closing brace of the a#back-to-top section)

Code: [Select]
#forumposts .post_separator {
background-color: var(--main-content-bg);
display: block;
margin-bottom: 10px;
}

That should work (it does on my test CAF forum)

Done.
I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I practice law in the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, London Tribunals, the First-tier tribunal for Scotland, and the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for Northern Ireland, but I am not a solicitor nor a barrister.

Just bringing this back up again as it still persists.

100% agree. There are no such times with a zero before single digit pm times.

And what is the need for the seconds.

Sorry to obsess but it is REALLY irritating all round, as well as potentially causing confusion.

Have you tried changing the time settings on your profile?

Where u is your member number - in your case 13

I'm lost as to how your link tells me how to change anything?

I must be thick.
