  • Feature Request: hack: per-user max sig height

    There aren't many offenders in this regard, but I find that a few posters have sigs that are ridiculously tall and make for unnecessary vertical scrolling just to read posts; I mean, they'll post a sentence and fill the entire display with their sig. I know, I know, I can just turn off the sigs in Options, but I don't want to do that because I enjoy reading people's sigs and feel like they are part of the personality of the site.

    Here's my feature request: Hack the PHP for sig inclusion to add a CSS class to the <div> tag that already encompasses everyone's sig. So instead of having
    PHP Code:
    <!-- sig -->
       <
    div>
          ...
       </
    div
    we would have
    PHP Code:
    <!-- sig -->
       <
    div class="mcsig">
          ...
       </
    div
    This alteration is non-destructive - everything would display the same as before - but you could then give people the option of activating the following CSS, or something like it:
    Code:
    .mcsig {
       height:100px;
       overflow:hidden;
    }
    There could be several specifications for this height, maybe, which the user could choose. Then we could have the best of both worlds, being able to see people's sigs, but not being encumbered by the few MiceChatters who feel they need to use a sig that's 800 pixels tall.

    I'm a web developer, so I'm pretty sure this is doable. The only tricky bit I can see would be how to make this mod accessible in the users' control panels.
