Change the Width of Status Replies in IPB 3.2.x+

One of the things that bothered me with Invision Power Board 3.2+ was that the space given for status replies had a fairly small width, making long status replies become a mess, this quick and easy tutorial will show you how to change it.

First start off by opening the Template Manager in the ACP by going to: Look & Feel > Manage Skin Sets & Templates > Click the Skin Set You Wish to Modify > CSS > ipb_style.css


.status_list .status_list { margin: 10px 0 0 50px; }

Replace with:

.status_list .status_list { margin: 0 -10px 0 0; background: #FFFFFF; padding: 3px 0; }

Optional – Re-align the Comment button

Below add:

.status_textarea { width: 99%; margin: 0 0 3px 0; }
.status_submit { text-align: right; padding: 0 0 3px 0; }
