21:9 Support?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ive noticed the forum is made for 16:9 monitors but what about 21:9 monitors? Would adding support for 21:9 monitors in the future going to be a thing? Or is it going to be 16:9 for ever?

99.9% of the world is using 16:9.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

The forum isn't made for 16:9 per se, it just has a limited width. The limited width is deliberate, because it is much more comfortable to read shorter lines (so design guides recommend limiting width). There isn't much else that we can do with the extra space on larger displays, so it has to be empty.


I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.

 

For Floatplane support, please use the wizard linked in this topic

Ok. That makes sense. I dont know too much about web design.

I think it's better to keep it as is since you may not want a forum to take a whole screen by itself.

That would make for some looooooooooong lines of text. I usually have forum type sites snapped to half the screen.
