Page Not Fitting Screen

Recommended Posts

When I first used to visit the site the page would fit the screen with the adverts down each side. Suddenly a few months back the page was coming up wider then the screen with a slide button at the bottom. I'm not quite sure why it changed or what to do to get it to go back to fitting the screen.

Was it changed to fit wide-screen monitors??? Not that I'm that bothered, but I can no longer see any of the adverts on the right of the screen unless I move the slider, but I do like to see the posts in the center so every time I go into a thread I have to slide the page across to centralise the posts which is annoying.

Can I do anything to change it or is it out of my control?


Ali - 50 - struggled with what I now know to be GI symptoms and poor carb digestion for at least 35 years! Diabetic type II (1997). Mother undx Celiac - lifelong diabetic Type 1 & anemic (plus 1 stillborn and 10 miscarriages after me). Father definitely very GI.

Stopped gluten & dairy, Jan 08, but still other issues so dropped most carbs and sugar and have been following the Specific Carb Diet (SCD) since March 08. Recovery slow but steady and I can now eat a much broader range of foods especially raw which are good for my digestion and boost my energy level.

Not getting better? Try the SCD - it might just change your life.........

it looks like the site was resized for a minimum resolution of 1200x1024. I agree that it's unfortunate, as I have both a 14" and 12" laptop that don't display anything larger than 1024x768 (which, afaik, is still the web standard for min resolution). but I'm unaware of anything you can do about the display of the website. it may be the forum software itself, not this implementation of it, for all I know.

I agree that it's very annoying. I can't read the posts without sliding back and forth. Subsequently, I read some of the posts and give up after a while. I like to read the posts, but all of the extra "activity" gets to me after a bit. I have tried to shrink the screen size with not result. Glad to know it's not my machine after all. Is there some way to go back to the other way? I bet I'm not alone with this complaint. Thanks

I noticed this issue as well. The user settings do not offer a way to customize it. Minimum resolution has been 800x600, but more and more, web designers seem to think everybody has a huge monitor with 1024x768 or higher. I think I saw the setting in one of the Javascripts, so I'm sure Scott could change it, and wouldn't be surprised if that's why it was.

Thanks all for responding.

Does anyone who is in control of all this actually read these posts I wonder? If not, I can't quite see the point of this section! If they are going to muck about with it, it would be nice if they added an ability to configure it yourself to your own equipment rather than all or nothing!

Hi Ali,

Scott (the administrator) does read this thread--I'm sure he'll check in soon :)

I just tried changing my resolution to 1024x768 to see how the board would be rendered. Yep, same issue. So I figure the board is probably scaling itself larger than the resolution being used (sites have the ability to check the user's resolution).

I hope it is a simple setting and not a mistake in the board's coding, otherwise we'll have to wait for the designer to fix it.
