so you are saying there is a code that is telling my browser how to format and justify the text - you just proved my point.


Only if you want to implement it on your browser using the instructions I have given as a request from another post requesting how to implement the javascript.

If viewing this post on this website and you press F11 on your keyboard, you cannot say that the different view you will get is down to any information or code examples posted previously.

Interesting that only page 5 of this thread has the word wrap issue.

gee, that's where there's code, huh?
ok, so maybe it's not the code.
maybe it's something else.
but if you are logged in - it's all of the pages.
and only this post / messages. no others.

I'm logged in and only show a word wrap issue on page 5. This page (6) looks normal, no horizontal scrolling required.

I've taken the code examples from the embedded quotations and made the code examples bold instead. Hopefully this should solve the issue. I hate computers. laugh


Edit;

Nope that didn't work, must be a Firefox issue as it didn't even wrap plain text.

i really don't care.
if you caused this problem, would you please uncause it?
thanks.


I agree. Please un-cause it. In a weird way, I am longing for the posts with poor grammar, as long as I don't have to hack my browser just to use this forum.

I looked over Am_Fear_Liath_Mor's post, and it seems the code snippets are there to illustrate the code itself, and not something that could be shortened by hyperlink. I viewed it on my phone, and yes, it is a bit of a scroll-fest. I will look to see if there is a way to limit the quote window width.

Thanks Cliff.

The easy answer is instead of posting super wide snippets of code, the poster should just supply a link to the website where he/she found the code.

Speaking of links, when I reported the post, there was also a long (wide) web link that was part of the scrolling problem. There are plenty of web link shortener services around that will resolve this.

So it was pasted text that caused the thread's format to go screwy?
