[code] functionality (lack) in new vBulletin

Are there any options to change the behavior of the [ code ] operator in this version of vBulletin. These horrible new little fixed width window are absolutly useless. You cannot read the relevant piece of code someone is disscussing as a whole. You cannot resize them. You constantly need to scroll the little winow left and right. You can't even easily select all the code text to cut and paste it into a Notepad to read it sensibly.

If possible please put it back the way the old version had it.

And even worse. (Quote from here)

We now do have the new vBulletin software version!

I mean ... that one that destroys all posted scripts by injecting spaces everywhere, if the written code contains character sequences long enough without spaces.

I consider this a serious malfunction in the handling of <code> content.

This is how you do a code block with this version.

That's of little help for the hundreds or thousands of scripts & scriptlets already posted in the past. Functional before, all of a sudden many of them became junk.

Whoa, chill out... It's early on a nice saturday morning. (If just the sun would break through)
But, more important, there's a new option i vBB3 that had this 'sideeffect' and I've of course reset it due to this. I hope this is to your satisfaction.

Ah, the windows will remain, I've just removed the totally useless '90-chars'-add-some-spaces thingy.

Thank you so much, Swede.

Interestingly, no one ever managed to do that change on the German Gleitz forum. Posting longer code is big fun there.

Can you give Michael Gleitz a hint where to edit which file? He is so heavily busy, he won't be able to search for hours...

Sure, in the admin-panel, vbulletin options, Thread Display Options, set "Number of Characters Before Wrapping Text" to 0.

Thank you guys for also being frustrated with the CODE functionality.

While we are on this subject, the boxes where PM's and Posts are typed is also very small and doesn't scale with screen resolution. (especially PM's, but it would be very nice if both scaled!)

Thanks

I'm still trying to find out how the settings affect the forum and just found out that if I turn on the 'autosize' for the code block (as I've now done) IE wont honour the width-limit but "if you do, Internet Explorer will stretch the width of the block rather than inserting a scrollbar."
Well, let's try this for a while and see if the IE-users hate it too much

Regarding the PM/Post widths I'm still doing some small experiments.

hm i think there now is a problem or things have gone worse from my point of view:

eg if you look at this thread
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=96159 or even at this thread here
you see that the posts get very long horizontally, which is very ugly imho

i think it is better when the the scrollbars get used

A vertical limit is okay in my opinion: Some people post logfiles directly into the reply text even without wrapping it in a CODE block; in such cases it would have been wise to attach such huge logs as files to the reply, instead of into the text. Code blocks with limited heights at least reduce the risk of unreadable replies due to their length.
