I always read the forums by using the "Active Topics" and past 24 hours feature. This gives me a list of the posts that have occurred recently. Having them appear at the right seems redundant.

I am using Mozilla Firefox. Is this scroll issue caused by particular browsers?


Jeff

Do you have a 24.5" monitor or two monitors that equate to that screen size? The latter of which would still have the scrolling issue I think.

I have two monitors, One is 24.5" inches at the diagonal, the second is 21.3" inches at the diagonal.

When discussing the issues above (using the zoom feature of the browser) I am discussing how the image appears on the 24.5" monitor (on just one monitor).

I can in fact stretch in image across both monitors and have 45.8 diagonal inches of pond boss forum but that's just crazy talk.

Trust me you do not want to see the photo of DIED's tarantula stretched across two monitors.

Well, that narrows it down to you simply being cursed. I guess I'll have to escalate that to the cyber witch doctors.

For now I'll just adjust down the browser zoom and start eating lots of carrots.

Trust me on this, if you ever try two monitors you'll never go back to one.

I finally figured out what you guys are talking about, and I have to scroll to the right to see the post as well. I've been doing it for so long that I do it automatically. I'd run downstairs to get tape measure and measure the monitor, but this is the first time I've sat down all day and I want to stay parked here for a while.


FWIW,when I open a thread, the right side of readable words stops right at the "C" in the "quick reply" tab without scrolling to the right.

That's no excuse, go get a tape measure. laugh

Depending upon your browser you should be able to modify the "zoom" and zoom out.

The good news is that you should be able to eliminate the scroll bar.

The bad news is that you'll need a magnifying glass to read your monitor. shocked

Damit, just when I get comfy... O.K. The viewable portion of the monitor is 11.790" high by 18.750" wide. Diagonally it's 22.000" (O.K., maybe it's 22.001") grin In the reply pane, the scroll button goes away when viewed at 85%. My nose to screen dimension is 45" when reading, 28" when typing.

Thank you DR Teehjaeh57. I haven't complained though I have tried several approaches to get my photos to be normal. I am not talking extraordinary, just normal. laugh

JHAP, so you only have 2 displays?

The only time I get a scroll bar is when I change my screen resolution. I usually run at 1680 x 1050. I dropped it down to 1024 x 768 and a scroll bar appeared.

Do a test and change your screen resolution, bump it up a bit and see what happens. I think that may be your main problem.

Test

Okay, photos are automatically resizing when posting to the forum - got it. I will see what I can do on this end. Other than the scroll issue, which we're still trying to figure out, anything else you can bring to my attention? I'd like to hammer these lingering bugs out ASAP.

The scroll bar issue is probably a user hardware/setting/comfort issue. I lowered my screen resolution three different times/tests, and each time a scroll bar appeared on Firefox and Google Chrome. So I would bet that it is not a forum issue, and all of my computers are CAD Workstations.

No other problems that I can tell.

I agree that the scroll bar is a display/resolution issue, but the photo's are another matter. They didn't just change when they are posted, all the old photo's are changed as well. The ones in my "pond renovation" thread from February 2009 are also resized when viewed.

Heck, I thought is was a new feature to keep monster photos from eating all my bandwidth and having to scroll forever. I actually like it. Just a little bigger would be good, but, especially on my little screens with limited bandwidth, it is a great feature!

Yep, that works in Firefox.

Thanks

In Google Chrome, you right click, then left click "open image in new tab".

Could not get anything to work in Internet Explorer

Ken's spot on - it is. Max was set at 400 to eliminate huge pix from eating up bandwidth. I've requested we change the setting to allow larger photos. Will keep the forum apprised of when we make the changes.

It's not special to Firefox...I'm using IE 8.0 and have the same issue, and it IS annoying. Not life or death...but slows me down a bit. A change would be welcome...but I'm just one person.

HI Matt,

The main reason you have to scroll right or left is due to your hardware/software/restrictions/preferences, you have.

As I have said previously, I am use to higher resolution, but when I dropped it down, I got a R-L scroll bar.

I am probably not explaining it enough in depth, and I Apologize.

TJ,

Dump the left margin. Move "Main Menu" and "Search" to the top in an open spot. Take Stat's and "Top Posters" and shove them to the bottom. Also, put "New Members" on the bottom, but high-lite them, like a whole line across the bottom, but change the color of the text.
