Any formatting changes to the forums lately?

Postby videobruce » Thu Oct 23, 2008 6:28 am

The last few days I noticed, instead of the pages occuplying the whole screen width, now they are only on the left side. Less than 1/2 of the width of the page. The rest of the screen is dark blue.

The individual posts are ok, it's the new posts and the sub forum screens that are affected.

Has there been any changes in the coding of the forums?

This is being caused by Firefox 3.

The only thing is I use Opera. Both browsers are wrong??

I just validated this page through W3C and it returned: 25 Errors & 127 warnings. Looks like some housekeeping is in order.

I will pass this on and let you know what I find out.

Has something to do with auto-resizing of the screen image. I also have that problem, when text does not cover a full screen line. Couldn't find any solutions. Likely not a problem with our site. Using FF 3.0.3 version.

Here is the site;
http://validator.w3.org/

Here is the other one, but it isn't as strick (it has a limitation on the number of errors it will report and this site gets maxed out);
