I've just run an upgrade and a few things probably need fixing.

 

Please bear with me! However, if you notice any issues, feel free to report them here. Thanks!

The forum seems to have 'infinite' width.  The slider bar on the bottom moves you over too quickly, so the right side of long posts can't be viewed, without using the very slow-to-move right arrow.  This also affects finding the 'reply. button.  This is with IE browser.

Yes - I'm seeing that problem too - it's really hard to find the submit button - you need to scroll right forever until it appears.

That's in IE-11

This is all very odd! I don't even see a slider bar - in Chrome or Edge or in IE11. 

 

The screen simply adjusts to the width of the window.

 

What devices are you using (I'm on a laptop)?

Desktop with me, too. The slider is semi-transparent and actually disappears when you're typing!

OK - I'm a bit flummoxed and I'm going to have to think about it (unless anyone has any suggestions)!


The width is meant to be dynamic - there should be no horizontal slider at all. I tried it on my desktop too and don't see what you are seeing. 

 

Could either of you post a screenshot? It may give a clue ...

 

The only thing I can think of right now to try is maybe deleting any cookies?

Hi Alistair - I'm at home now and it works fine on my laptop - weird!

I'll try flushing the IE cache tomorrow at work - maybe the CSS isn't updating.

Thanks Paul - let me know how you get on. It would be good to get to the bottom of what's happening here!

OK - I flushed the cache on my desktop (that should remove any lingering css stylesheet files that might cause this - and the problem is still there.

Hopefully you'll be able to see the image below:

This might help - there is some javascript that gets the page width from the css file:

 

JavaScript:

 

var grabPageWidth = $('body').css('min-width');

 

So you might want to look at the 'min-width' setting in the following css file:

Also - that css seems to be for IE8 - which is pretty old now..

I made one small change - let me know if it's better now. If not, I may not have time to look at that properly until the weekend.

 

If it's not working, could you try the default theme? You can change theme down at the bottom left of any screen (there is a drop-down menu). I'd be curious whether it is happening there too.

 

I wonder whether it checks your browser and, for some browsers, chooses fixed width and has a bad setting. Do you have another browser you could try it on?

Nope - still got the problem.

HOWEVER - when I changed to the default theme, the problem goes away! :)

(I think this just changes the css style sheet)

Yes, changing to default theme works, but looks pretty ugly!  :lol:

OK - so my fix failed but at least now I know that it is in the css for the site theme (but not in the css for the default theme) - so that helps!

 

Thank you. Now to find where in the css ...

OK - we may have a fix. 

 

I have patched the bad theme css and I hope the issue (which was just with IE11) has now gone. Let me know if it worked. If not, I can reload the whole theme and re-edit it.
