Subject Re: [Issue 122233] sourceforge.net: download file name column of directory too narrow
Date Sat, 07 Nov 2015 12:45:10 GMT
@Roberto:
This issue seems to produce stil lsome pain.

The problem is still there [1] that the file names are displayed 
truncated, so that it is not possible to see the complete filename to 
click on.

Do you think it is possible for your webmaster team to find a solution 
to improve the display and to keep your stuff you want or need to display?

AFAIK there was already an attempt to improve the problem but the 
truncation is still there, even when it is now better than before. IMHO 
now only the "Recommended Projects" box needs to be replaced somethere 
else (e.g., on the bottom or top of the file list).

It would be great.

Thanks

Marcus
