Who's messing around with the forum ?
« on: May 31, 2009, 10:34:15 »
Ok - whats going on here ?

We had a nice forum and layout going for us and someone decided to change to wide screen mode - Why ?
Ok, a few people have a wide screen, and the powers that be decided that was the way to go - but most of us have normal size monitors, so why isn't the update auto sensing ?

Pressing F5 works, or I should say did !, as now every time I select a thread to read it's switching back to wide screen.
Who's fiddling with the controls out there ?

No other site has this "Feature" - Put it back the way it was

Going back to 'Model Boats' and 'Mayhem', till I cool down

No matter which way you throw me - I'll always stand.

This is not always under the control of the forum / web masters control.. The site I run was standard size and then the site provider changed it without auto sensing to widescreen , which for me is great and is the way to go and you will find that most sites are going that way as well, however I understand your point as I have the old type screen at work and it is a bit of a pain..

Most odd as it is all working properly for me and I don't have a wide screen monitor. I recall pressing F5 once and since then....no problems.

Let me know if the problem persists and I will take the matter up on your behalf!! :o :o

Hello


I thing it was not a good idea to add the last winner picture on right and leave the previous winner on left as it change the size -

Ok it's not problem to read as I have a large screen. The only "bad thing" for me is : the last winner pics on right side if alf out of view ! it's not nice to see only the aft deck of Jack's tug ...

And if there is some problems for some of us maybe we have to come back to the previous size with only one winner picture on left ! 

No ?
