Hi,

I can't figure out why some posts have a scroll bar that I can use to see the words and other posts don't. I'm having problems viewing all the words on some posts because I have to play around with the mouse trying to scroll on the words instead of using a scroll bar.

I hope someone can make sense of what I'm saying and help with this, lol!

What am I doing wrong?

Crabby,
I don't have a clue. I have a scroll bar on each post I go to.

Oh darn, sometimes I have one and sometimes I don't. It's probably my internet browser. Wierd things always happen like that. I'll try using Internet Explorer and see if it's better.

Hmmmm - do you know what your screen resolution is set at?  You can find out by going to your desktop and right-clicking on the desktop.  Then select "Properties", then select "Settings" and you should see a screen resolution area.  If it's set at anything lower than 800 x 600 you may have problems viewing web pages.  Try bumping it up a level.

What browsers are you guys using? Firefox, Netscape, etc.?

I see vertical scroll bars and sometimes horizontal scroll bars in posts with s but nothing that obscures the posts...

I have compuserve which uses the netscape browser. But it has always done strange things. I'll check the screen resolution and if that doesn't work, IE.

The post will have scroll bars on just itself if it is too large. This forum script tries to make it so you don't have to scroll the whole page sideways. If you use a small resolution it will happen often, especially if there are any pictures.
