Shrink screen?

Joe, I've got a bit of a problem. Some of the forums don't fit on my screen. I'm losing the width of about 2 words along the right hand side. Which means I'm guessing at what the poster is trying to say.

Is there a way to correct this?

Is there a picture in that post? A picture may stretch your screen horizontally. The forums are designed for a minimum resolution of 800x600, any smaller will also require horizontal scrolling.

Well, for those of us who have perfectly good, smaller screens, this is a problem!!!
I honestly don't have room for a bigger screen on my desk (maybe I'll be able to afford a flat screen someday, and hang it on the wall).

To get around this, turn Show image attachments and [img] code in Posts? in your User CP -> Options from Yes to No.

Joe, your first response was correct. What seems to happen when pics are posted, it widens the screen and all posts after that are also wider.

Sorry I was slow in asnswering, but just got home from hospital.

Speaking of scrolling. Is there any chance that you could put a "View New Posts" button at the bottom of the page as well as the top. This way when you are done reading all the posts we don't have to scroll all the way back to the top of the page to get back to the new posts page.

I know I am just nit-picking but it would be nice.
