Maybe Geekzone should have automatic text reflow so we wouldn't have to squint at viewing text on the full version of Geekzone? And Geekzone mobile doesn't have the full features so not really any use for me.

Thanks.

It really depends on the browser. Are you using Android by any chance?

Works fine for me. Android, multiple browsers. Note that you probably need to access your browser's settings to turn the feature on.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yes.

And it works with other websites, but just not Geekzone?

I have flow issues in Chrome (PC Windows 8).
The side News/Trending bar goes ontop of peoples text unless then paragraph the hell out of their sentences.

I use Chrome on Windows 8 and don't see this kind of problem.

Are you using an ad block, script blocker, or any other script by any change?

Always use adblock. Along with the rest of the world ;)
Just that though.

I've seen this happen too, usually on older threads - an example of which would be this one (see sbiddle's second post, and a bunch further down.)

I'm running Firefox 21 on a laptop (1366x768,) ABP enabled/disabled doesn't make any difference.

That happened because the browser doesn't apply line breaks to the text inside the box. The long dialplan with not logical break caused Firefox to show the long lines (virtually extending the box under the right side column).

Interestingly Chrome showed that page ok, Firefox did not.

I've changed the long dial plan by just adding some line breaks in two points and it shows ok on Firefox now.

As for Android browser, perhaps rules are even more different than Firefox.

Good to know it wasn't just me having this problem. In my case sometimes pages will display correctly. Other times not. Using firefox 20.0.1 on win XP with No Script addon.
