Forum Tech Question... (I'll try here first.)

A question for any computer savvy or forum savvy folks: (I suppose there's a forum tech support page, but I couldn't find it.)

On my computer, here in the Newmar Owner's section, the thread titled "Newmar Hoots Looking for a Roost" does not wrap. It displays in the window as extremely wide, and I have to use the horizontal slide bar to view the full scope of the text in each post. The other threads in this section, and all threads I have checked in every other section of iRV2 (a total of "lots"), all wrap properly such that I can see and read the entire post without shifting the window.

Has anyone encountered this sort of thing before? Is this a config item on MY comp? Why would only one particular thread be subject to this?

Thanks for your help. I am at a loss! I could fly 400 tons across oceans, but a few odd electrons have me in turmoil!

Mine does the same thing on some of the bigger threads for some reason, I thought I was doing something wrong, or my computer was messed up. I'm like you when the computer won't do what I want it to, my kids have to show me how to do it. It will be interesting to see what the amswer is here, because it is only on a few threads.

I've seen that on many threads where a picture with the "click this bar" on it is expanded and winds up being much wider than your browser window.

I couldn't find anything in the thread noted but in the Lookin' Out the Windshield thread in the general discussion forum, it's really easy to make it happen - first picture on page 2, expand it and you'll see that effect.

Can't say for certain if that's what you're encountering, but I have noticed this in the past.

I didn't notice any difference. Here's two screen shots - one prior to clicking the bar and the second after clicking the bar. Notice the large horizontal scroll bar I wind up with. I believe this is what JFXG is discussing.

JohnRR.... I checked the "Lookin out the Windshield" thread, and when first opened it also appeared to show the unwrapped pages, but after a few seconds the page jumped all three pages now appear properly wrapped.

The "Newmar Hoots Looking for a Roost" thread that I referenced above, on closer inspection, appears to have the "not wrapping" problem only on pages 11 and 12. Pages 1 through 10 of the thread appear normally. Page 11 appears unwrapped but only slightly wider than my window. Page 12 appears unwrapped and extremely wide.

I would add that this problem appears always, not just when expanding pictures.

Thank you for the assistance!

I could be mistaken but it looks normal until you click the enlarge then it goes oversize this would be because of the original size of the picture posted using the in the advance reply box this would be normal as there seems to be no size restriction when posting pictures with this box.

I take really large pictures and this is how they have posted, there have been instances where pictures have been posted side by side with no space between them where they make the whole thread read wide as well as when some links that are super duper long that make the page very wide. In these cases they made every post on that page of the post just as wide where you have to scroll side to side to read.

I got it John I just looked through all the pages and did not see any that were expanded so I guess it's time to look where someone may know what's happening, I know enough to get us all in trouble.

I'm going to move this to Forum issues.

Who ever place the pictures in the post placed them straight across the post instead of placing three than step down and place another three and so forth.
I was going to correct but the posts moved on the next pages, everything was back to normal and was not sure I could move links with out mixing them all up.
You can place three pictures side by side than move down and add three more with out extending page over sized.
