When I read the forum on my laptop I have to keep moving across to see the entire message. Anyone else having this problem?

Barbara,

I believe that the settings on your laptop will control the size of what you see, but don't ask me how to change your settings. Maybe someone else will come in here with abetter answer than mine. Right now there are only 30 people signed up for the forum to test it out, so it may be a while before someone answers you.

You should be getting a version of this posted message in your email now. Let us know if you are getting the emails as yiou want them.

You may also want to set up some type of a signature in your profile, that was it will automaticly be included in all of your posts.

Howdy.
When I am using Internet Explorer as my web browser to access this forum, I have the same problem as you describe. When I am using Mozilla Firefox, the width of the page is just fine.

Regards,
Liz

My personal and professional recommendation is to use Firefox for browsing the internet. Unless a website absolutely requires that IE be used (e.g. Microsoft Update), I recommend sticking with Firefox. I have tested these forums and buybyebluebird.com on both to ensure compatibility and everything has checked out fine.

Also, I have the width of the forum set to 850 pixels wide. This means that if your screen resolution settings are lower than this (e.g. 800 x 600), then the forum will appear to be too wide. This can be changed by changing the resolution to a higher setting (see my reply above).

However, it appears that your resolution settings are fine if it is working in Firefox correctly. What this tells me is that something in your IE settings are causing the forum to appear wider than it really is.

I just checked out my laptop and I don't have the same problem, so I'm set when I'm on the road. But for those members that are interested here is where to find the free download for FIREFOX, go to; http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox...FQINPAodMkRcWw

I hope that this helps.
