    Darryl, that happened to me earlier, but only on one particular thread. The other ones have been normal for me today.

    Darryl, I think you may be able to solve the problem by setting your monitor's settings to the max number of pixels. Only problem with that is if you are like me and have trouble seeing the writing will be smaller. Vern

    Sometimes when a poster posts a really long URL, this will happen.

    I use this website for making shorter urls when possible.

    Its just you Darryl. Never had that happen.

    Try this:
    Put your hand over your left eye and read the post. Than put your hand over your right eye and read it.:eek:oooh: No scrolling sideways necessary now....:cool2:

    It only happens after I have been in the ice chest or Paul has been playing around, cleaning house. :tounge_out:

    DRC I never had that trouble before. But I just done something to see if it may cause that to happen and IT DID. I tried to "Resize Page" and as soon as I resized the page I had to go from side to side to read the thread. Check to see if you can resize the page.

    Lucky for me I don't have that trouble all I have to do is hit a "size text" button "- or +". I can make the letters REAL BIG and not have to scrolls from side to side. The post may get a bit longer but not wider.

    Darryl, the only time I have to scroll sideway is when people don't know how to post links. Links should be inserted (use Insert Link) into the post and there would never be a problem with a long url causing everyone to have to scroll.

    Here is a link that has been inserted. It would make no difference if the link was a foot long.

    It has happened a few times here, though a quick refresh corrects the problem right away.
