Some posts on geekzone are looking a bit messy recently . . . or is it just me?
This is in Chromium but looks the same in Firefox and Chrome for me

I have been getting the same issue on couple of machines with 1600 x 900 resolution.

This is the same thing I noticed here. If you make the browser window narrower, the right sidebar disappears which makes everything line up again, but this isn't so good for other web sites.

It's not a screen resolution thing, it's a browser window width thing (unless you always run browser windows at full screen).

Should resolution matter? No properly designed website should have issues with different or low resolutions.

Resolution matters because at some width we hide the right column. The current limit works except if there is a longer message in the +1 area.

Knowing the resolution may help me changing when it hides or change how things appear on that area.

You see... We are trying to be more responsive by hiding the sidebar. The other sites may have a more rigid non responsive layout.

May I suggest that either the sidebar is hidden at a wider cutoff point, or there is a two step size for the sidebar - reduce it to the width of one of the tall narrow ads, then completely hide it as the window gets narrower still.

Currently if you resize the browser window width, as it gets narrower there's a point where the +1 area above each post line wraps (and looks ugly) and the horizontal ad between the last post and the quick reply box gets the RHS truncated. If you keep getting narrower, the sidebar is hidden, which tidies things up again.

Yep, either this or changing that information bar. Either way it's a cosmetic thing only, not functional.

On both of the 1600 x 900 resolution devices I sometimes access geekzone from, the IMG tags for photos have been showing up as massively over blown and no buttons like edit on top right corner show up (hidden somewhere) while on 1080P resolution screens, they show up as decent sized thumbnail with the all the buttons like edit etc visible.

This sounds like a caching problem - I have sorted images a few weeks back by making sure any image is no more than 100% of the available width of the container. That specific thread you're showing appears just fine for me:



I guess either your ISP is caching too aggressively or your browser. Clear file cache and try again please.

On the machine I am typing from now, it's a Vodafone VDSL connection. 1600 x 900 resolution AIO machine. 99% of the time I use Firefox. I have never opened the house build thread on IE11 on this machine and it's doing the same enlarged photo issue as posted above. I have just tried opening the same thread on another 1600 x 900 resolution AIO machine on the same Vodafone VDSL network on Firefox and IE and same issue. This is a totally isolated machine. So not a browser issue.

At another site a 1080P resolution monitor/machine with Snap/2Degrees UFB connection displays thread images fine using Firefox, Edge and IE11 BUT an ultrabook that has never left the same site with 1600 x 900 resolution display has same enlarged photo issue using multiple browsers (Firefox, Edge and IE11). This rules out browser issue. Same issue happening across 2 different ISP's. Only thing in common so far is 1600 x 900 resolution displays.

I see... Firefox calculates max-wdith:100% as the window, not the container. 

Fark them browsers.

Firefox 43.0.2. Right hand side of quote button, inline image, and post text seems to be truncated. Res is 1280x800, but browser is not full screen.

Is this the FF max width image thing from above?

Of course it does, I mean it's not like there are any standards to adhere to
