    All of a sudden (I didn't notice before) some threads won't fit on my screen (left to right of course).

    Whatz up??

    usually thats due to either a run on sentence of somebody being a dweeb, abnormally large image or something like that. I would demonstrate it but Augi may have my head for it :razz:

    Would you link one of the threads? btw I have a giant monitor so it takes a whole lot to disrupt it.

    if a loooong url is posted, it'll give you a left/right scroll, very inconvenient i agree...using some text in the url helps

    example: [ url = hxxp: //blahdeblahdeblahdeblah url]text[ / url ]would appear as "text"

    at 1024 X 768 resolution, a 600 pixels wide image looks great...make sure your "img" has it's own line in
    your post, or you'll get this[​IMG]

    instead of this:
    [​IMG]

    text next to your image will also result in a left/right scroll.

    did this help?

    and, a reminder...remotely hosted images should not be hotlinked, don't use [​IMG]

    And there are others cause by an insanely long member's nic.
    It is bothersome when I have several pages open.

    Maybe when the forum is up graded to vB this will all be addressed.

    yeah, new software will come with some new (not all willing, but unavoidable) conditions...stay tuned.

    jerryt, the topic you linked us to (above) is a good example...you yourself posted the culprit link in that case...not criticizing only pointing out. if you edited the post to add a "text label" like i pointed out above, the scroll bar would go away.

    or, we're not on the same page: i'm addressing why some threads will have a scroll at the bottom & how to avoid it.

    My bad Augi,

    Deleted the URL and BEHOLD - NO SCROLL

    I'll have to study a little more to understand your instruction

    Augi use that as your avatar thats awesome!

    As for the page that is out of line.. I checked it the monitor would have to be 800x600 to really impact it from what I am seeing no idea what is wrong.

    As well Augi I am trying to remember what forum I go to that will do a url like this

    http://www.motoredbikes.com.....

    Instead of finishing the url being /index.php it will cut off at a point to prevent problems and some forums do wordwrap on links. Gah I wish I could remember where.
