    Not sure how to explain the following here goes:
    Up to now when l read a thread it gets to a sensible point and drops down to the next line, everything nice and neat. The likes etc in easy find and reach.
    Today the writing just keeps going l have an extra bar along the bottom to pull to the end. It wont fit on any computer screen no matter how big and someplace at the farrrrrrrr farrrrrr end is a full stop or the likes button etc. :Eek!:

    it is very weird and l dont like having to pull pages backwards and forwards to read and recheck points that are normally just "there"

    It happens when a post includes a large graphic. The width of the page is increased to accommodate it and that affects every post on that page.

    It will then revert on the next page of posts (see pages 6/7 on the EU thread for example).

    Just for info for the OP.

    to reduce the number of posts affected .. you can alter the number of posts per page ..

    Forum default is eight.. that can be changed to five ..

    Go to:

    My Profile, Edit Options, (scroll down and find) Number of Posts to Show Per Page

    to be fair, I've got to say that i have had the same issue at times. the text gets truncated even when there is no picture on the page. I've found closing firefox and restarting normally cures it. firefox for some reason doesn't set the text to wrap occasionally. can also of course be a bad fetch from the forum database
