I've rearranged that layout to single-column and moved the 'Delete Account' link to a separate section; the layout still could be further improved, though.

Problem: savane layout does not well adapt to different display resolutions. The world today ranges from 320 CSS-pixel portrait mode on mobile phones like iPhone 5 SE up to 15360x8640 (16K8K) displays.

This provides a starting mitigation solution for the 'My Account Conf' page: The wrapping splitleft-splitright divs can be simply removed. Just remove the calls of html_splitpage() in frontend/php/my/admin/index.php

So the main content of my/admin/ is displayed as a single column on small mobile displays or browser viewports. But on larger displays it can be 2 or more columns when the boxes .box has a display:inline-block;vertical-align:top; and maybe set a max-width: (see @media-queries)

Also then the span-clearr-wrappertag is not required anymore.

Also most of additional br-tags in frontend/php/my/admin/index.php are not necessary. A visual spacer between boxes can be done by

form#myconf .box{

or something like that.

The 'Delete Account' box can be put last outside of the whole form-tag as it only leads to a separate page.

BTW: Often an ancient float: misused for a page layout can be replaced by


that does not require extra html tags just for clearing purposes.(clear:both/left/right;)
