Where would I go to change the forum message display width? I'm on 1024x768 LCD monitors and the posts run off the right side of page and under the News/Trending frame.

Thanks,
Gavin.

I've noticed it might be happening after someone replies with a wider screen or something strange like that.

When I go to this page everything wraps correctly:

When I go though to page 3:

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=90&topicid=111430&page_no=3

It's off the page again as the screenshot shows. I'm using Firefox, but it's done this to me on quite a few occasions different version. I've cleared all the cookies and cache, shut it down, opened it back up, tried a mix of logging on and viewing as guest but same result.

Cheers,
Gavin.

There was an image on that page that was wider than your desktop. I've resized that for the poster.

Thanks for replying and looking at that. I didn't notice the image size, makes perfect sense.

Is there anyway to have the images scale by default?

Now I can go finish reading the missing bits instead of applying creative visual error correction.

Cheers.

If someone uploads to Geekzone we automatically resize and offer links to the correct sizes.

If people use some other server we try to limit the image width using CSS. Some browsers are not good at it.
