Text Wrap is Off?
text in forum posts are not wrapping and it's hard to read

 8:47 pm on Feb 3, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hi folks, I'm new here so maybe there is some setting I'm not aware of, but this morning when I went to view the threads I've been following it seems that the text wrap is somehow set off. So I have to scroll forever to read what people are saying.

I'm using Chrome... I tried in Firefox and the problem went away - but I hate using Firefox. Anybody know how to fix this so I can stop going crazy trying to read this forum?

"This station is not experiencing technical difficulties. DO adjust your set."

Text wrapping is down to your browser. Do you have automatic updates running, with possible prefs changes along the way?

If part of a post is set to "pre" -- meaning no auto-wrapping -- a line can easily circle the earth unless a moderator comes along and inserts hard line breaks. Some browsers will override this if you tell them to. (Similar to the option you may have in View Page Source mode: wrap to fit, or leave as-is.)

Hmmm... I dunno. I didn't adjust anything, just cleared the cache. No updates have installed. Can't find any settings in Chrome that seem applicable.

It's not on all topics either - just the image hotlinking thread. Very curious...

Ah ha. Then it is a no-wrap issue. There's a lot of quoted code in that thread. These forums have at least three different ways to quote code-- and each browser has its own rules for where you can break a line. For example, Camino will break at slashes / but not at em-dashes. Go figure.
