Solved Topic extending "off screen" to the right

Post by Bloodhound1958 on February 1st 2015, 8:18 pm

Hello, for some reason one forum section has a tendency to expand the topic off screen too far to the right. All the other forums and topics auto size to fit except this one. Is there a setting I should adjust? Just an FYI there are widget columns on both sides.

This is due to the link provided in the post. It won't auto-wrap it, it's too long. Either cut it down into pieces or provide a more direct link in that post.

This is probably a search result, right? So, hit the link in your browser until it's cut down more (probably the source of it), than copy that link into your post. Wink
