    Default part of post out of view

    I have trouble seeing all of the text in some posts. They don't seem to wrap properly for me. I have tried different browsers. Is there a particular setting that I am missing? Thanks.

    Example is purpleheart scales in restoration section.

    To go along with that, ever since the site was re-done, I have to scroll down to find things, like the forums, for example. Maybe I'm just missing the boat.

    Try using this website:

    http://straightrazorpalace.com2

    The other one, you may have gotten as a link from the SRP, is basically a website inside a website.

    Do all posts word wrap incorrectly, or just some (eg, vladsch's in your reference)? Most posts wrap correctly on my system independent of whether I'm viewing it in the frame on the main site or full screen via the .../forums2 link AACJ provided. Vladsch's purpleheart does not, however. Korndog, I suspect it's likely the result of the large graphic (causing the message window to expand to accomodate it's width) rather than a problem word wrapping problem .

    Can you elaborate on this a little as I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "scroll down to find things, like the forums".

    Joe,

    It seems the home page loads fine, but when I select forums or user gallery, the page seems to shift so that the forums or gallery appear down below the log in button. Make sense? If I knew how to send a screen shot, I would. The same thing happens on my computer at work as well.

    I am having the same difficulties on the word wrap and the page loading out of screen shot.

    The gallery is the worse by far but since I dont visit there much I havent mentioned it. When the gallery loads, the frame where the gallery should be is vacant (white), while the surrounding frames are fine (Main Menu, Latest News, Popular etc.)... the actuall gallery is located Below the "Who's Online" Frame. Some of the time the forums will do this as well but not nearly as frequently as the gallery.

    I think most of the issue is with the frames, because when I open the forum with out the frame-in-frame lay out every thing looks fantastic.

    Yea, this has been annoying me for months. To a newbie it would appear that there isn't a forum at all. I have to scroll for about 20 secondes just to get down to the forum. That other Link, Forum2, is much better.

    Cool

    It's all I've been able to use with Safari so I thought it was just me. Nice to hear others agree. I don't like all the headings on my Forums page when I'm out and I check the site from Internet Explorer. All that's either in the next window or a click on the 'back' (<) "button".

    Following is a screen shot from a WindowsXP PC running at 1024x768 resolution using the Firefox browser and the forum set to use the "BlueSteel" style. This is what it should look like if you are using a browser that supports frames properly (eg, Internet Explorer, Mozilla/Firefox, etc). You may need to scroll around to see it all as the graphic is wider than fits most screens. (I didn't resize it to illustrate how a wide graphic causes the display frame to expand wider than can be displayed on the screen and, hence, wordwrap occurs at the off screen right margin.)



    BTW, if you are running at 800x600 it will look as follows (which is why you should run at 1024 if at all possible )



    If your browser claims to support frames and you're having a problem, then make sure you're at a fairly recent version as some browsers had problems in their earlier releases.

    For me it's just Vladsch's and others probably with wide images like you say. For the most part, it seems to be ok. I'm using hte alternate site and it's perfect now.
