Steve in the last week or so I have found the forum is coming up much wider in my browser. Even when I shrink it (in page view) to 75% I stil have to scroll left to right to read posts. It's a pain in the butt!

Anyone else experiancing this?

Um, I don't know! I am glad you brought it up. What kind of browser are you using? Could you post a screen shot? Maybe that could help?

I am currently experiencing the same problem right now

how wide is your screen?

scaling works with FireFox but not in IE. I am assuming that you guys are using 1024 x 768 screen res which would cause scrolling if you use Internet Explorer. Until the problem is fixed you can use FireFox browser to view the forums correctly. Or if you have a wide enough monitor and can support 1200 px wide res make the necessary adjustments.

Hey Steve,

You might want to reduce your table width to 99% in this code

<TABLE width="100%" align="center"><TR bgcolor="#703F1C" align="center"><TD class="vbmenu_control"><a href="http://www.gopherforum.com/index.php">Home</a>

and also when ever you us a "&" like here

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="GopherHaul Lawn Care Business Advertising & Marketing Discussions - Gopher Forum RSS Feed" href="external.php?type=RSS2" />

replace "&" with "& amp;" (without the space after the &) it will still show as a "&" and it is validation friendly

Ahhh thank you, let me try that out. I don't use IE so I didn't see the problem.

1024 x 768 and I use Firefox

03-21-2009, 11:28 AM
I am almost certain that it is your table with your top links in it. I would try and comment it out to see if it will then display properly.

Using comment tags

"< !**** (without the space)

I use Firefox. Havn't had any of the problems I had with IE. I just got notification of an IE 8.0 download. I thin I will stay with Firefox.

03-22-2009, 08:32 AM
Yup it's displaying normally in Internet Explorer now.

glad to see you guys can now read without scrolling...that would be a pain in the butt for sure.
