    I was away for a little while and came back to find the board radically changed. I'm trying to learn the new system, but one problem that is very annoying is that the pages render too wide now forcing me to scroll sideways to see the entire page. I've tried various options in the "preferences" page, but cannot find a solution for this. What can be done to resolve this?

    Maybe hold ctrl and click the minus sign a couple of times? At least that's how I solve this in my system.

    Yes, reducing the font size did take care of the problem, but it also made it harder to read. Found the "remove right column" that did the trick.

    What size is your monitor and what do you have your resolution set to? The site design was based on the usage by 96% of our visitors. In some cases (small monitors with very large resolution) there may be some horizontal scrolling.

    Seventeen inch monitor set to 1280x768.

    It's that new right hand column with the "tags and currently viewing" stuff that was causing the problem. I've eliminated it from the forum posts, but it still throws the pages off in the other areas. Is there some way to put all that at the bottom so that I can get the full width of my screen back for more useful stuff like it used to be?

    Thanks for the info! We designed for 1024, so you definitely shouldn't be getting a horizontal scroll at anything bigger (like 1280).
