My name is João Alves and I'm adapting the amazing iTheme by to the SilverStripe CMS.

Here's a screenshot:

The main content area is 545px wide and the forum content is usually larger than that (760px).

My question is how could I adapt the design to the forum module?

Do you think I should reduce the size of the forum elements, expande the main content area or that any other action?

Please tell me what you think. Your opinion is very important. :)

In my opinion, you should decrease the modules width - using smaller fonts should look great!
(thanks to Will I'm a big fan of 0.8em size and anything that is less than 12px ;) )

I was recently making themes which had even less space for a forum so I can tell that a thinner forum is ok. I think that extending the layout itself would be a mistake.

I'm looking forward to your theme, it looks awesome for me!!

Thank you for your opinion Wojtek!

I'll try it out. I'm sure it'll look just great if I follow your indications.
