Brett, kiddies... what's changed? Me and the widescreen boosted 3x (glaucoma, too) and recently there's a SCROLL RIGHT to see it all? What's happened to the right margin?

Or is it just me?

Or should I just keep mum and go away?

Browser zoom works on front, lists, reply boxes (all) but fails (for me) reading posts, particularly from RECENT POSTS.

I know I'm in the small sample (bad eyes and all that) but I have to ask why the site is not completely fluid regardless of browser size, etc.

Color me okay, but color me with a question.

It is probably the quick reply textarea. you can control the width of the text area (colums) from your control panel. I found the bug with the "email notification of new replies" not showing. So that may have made you screen wider?

Followup to Brett and kiddies... I think I have discovered WHY the right scroll sometimes comes up (and thanks for the tip on resizing textarea as that helped, too)...

The scroll seems to occur when the CODE tag is used in posts... and that code extends beyond the norm. Not sure how one can deal with that in presentation layout but does make perfect sense as to why some posts are WIDE and the others are not.
