forum width problem

Post by Dave80 on September 28th 2006, 3:59 am

It is fine if I use Firefox browser. But when I view it with IE, the forum width is too big for easy browsing. The same IE does not have any problem with other forums. Wondering what's the problems. Appreciate if somebody can help out. My url

Problem still exist. The forum width is so wide that members have to scroll to the right all the time in order to view sentences. I think it is caused by the appearance of the long html tags at the bottom of the forum table, which I copied it here - - select name="selected_id" onchange="if(this.options[this.selectedIndex].value != -1){ forms['jumpbox'].submit()..........

Looks like it is not a major problem. Please help. Thanks.

What's the width you want ? It's because I've look and the witdh is at 100 % ...

Maybe, the chinies (Excuse me, I don't know what the language...) Letters change something ...

Thanks for yr post, but it's definitely not because of the language. I've use IE to view other Chinese editboard's forum and their forum size is fine. Somehow the html tag for the Jump between forums function(right at the bottom of the forum table) is not hidden and appears on the forum titles page, which stretches the width of the forum table(though i set at 100%). Even I changed the width to 80% or lower, the table still so wide it very troublesome for members to read. THanks.

Can you make a screen shot ?

For some IE users, the navigation bar is broken in two steps [on another forum].

I think Fire Fox is the best solution Wink.

The screenshot



I created the extreme left and extreme right section of the forum table, just to show you the exact problem. There is a middle section which I omited to make it simple. The arrows indicate the html tags which should be hidden but appear on the forum titles page and message page. I guess the long line at the bottom is the "culprit".

I agree with you that firefox is the best solution, but majority of the members are still using IE though I have put up a notice advising them to use Firefox.

Thank you for your attention.

Yeah sure we can. But the problem is you're supposed to create your OWN topic in the SUPPORT forum.
So I lock this topic
