Another dumb question, probably.

Something seems to have happened lately to the length of the lines of the text. They now wrap at a greater screen width, meaning that people like me, who have a small screen, cannot read the text without scrolling horisontally, which is very irritating.

Is there any way I can influence this setting myself? Or, if not, could it be changed back to the width it was before, please?

This is affecting me also. A Browser window any smaller than 1024x768 requires horizontal scrolling.

-Jar.

Wierd. Using Firefox in Windows, I don't have this problem at all.

Hmmm... okay, if I crunch it down to about 400, I lose things here in the editor. :)

I can sympathise, though, as I DO have this problem on TMC. I've always used a vertical task bar to maximise my view of the scrollback, and making the browesr full-width (768) occludes my view of the activity icons on the games I'm connected to. People get so testy when you ignore them...

The only thing that has changed with the layout is the new buttons, and this does not affect the page width. I've tested with an old copy of the templates (prior to any changes at our site) and it also scrolls horizontally at small resolutions. subSilver seems to exhibit this problem much more severely.

With the bbtech style I don't get hscroll until the width is well under 800 pixels, which is the smallest resolution typically in use (the most common is 1024x768). However, subSilver does scroll at this resolution. So I'm looking into it.

Alright, subSilver should be working better now. Tell me if you have any more problems.

Thanks for light. Some of us have bad eyes. Or bad monitors combined with bad eyes. I've got this wierd light/dark contrast thing going on. Sometimes I cut and paste posts from those other sites to read them. Smile

The page width works fine for me again. Smile
If anything was changed - thanks a heap! If it was just a temporary personal problem caused by my crappy computer/browser, I apologise for the whining.
