Is it only on my PC?
Tn this forum on avrfreaks, and not the others, the column width of the topic has become quite narrow, making the topic description wrap to several lines.

Firefox latest. Win 7.

No, it is not just your PC. This happens every time when someone with a long username makes a post. Especially if that someone is the originator of a thread.

Are you browsing AVRfreaks in its "Maximize"d mode? (I.e. w/o those pixel-wasting green margins?

Screenshot?

I'm on Windows XP right now, with FireFox 3.6.13, and I see no changes in layout.

No, don't point me to just a forum listing. Tha listing looks just OK for me. Show me what it looks like on YOUR screen.

This is how what you link to looks on MY screen:

Well, it looks that you have a monitor with higher resolution. Mine is 1280x1024. And I normally do not use Maximize. To make things worse for you I probably need to post from my WWW...WWW account (with 25 W's).

On the other hand, maybe what stevech is seeing is something complete different altogether.

Mine is 1280x800.

Why someone does not want to click "Maximize" at the top of the listing to get rid of the green margins is beyond my comprehension. They are only there because some "web designer" at Atmel thought they looked good. They add absolutely nothing to the usability or content of AVRfreaks, and waste screen pixels for which I paid a substantial amount of money.

(If I feel I have too many pixels available on my display I can paint htem over all by myself, thankyou Atmel.)

(If you allow an AVRfreaks cookie the "Maximize" selection will be remembered in future sessions.)

What else do you do to plague yourself voluntarily? :wink:

I saw it this morning and didn't know the cause. I switched to Maximize because it was so annoying. Now I am back to the narrow view that Johan doesn't like (but which I am used to) and it is back to normal.

OK, then mine fits less probably because I use bigger font. I keep doing more ctrl+ as I get older.

I do not know. Maybe just because I got used to it. Also, there is that "My forumposts" on the left, which I find useful.

Please could you change your forum name. You have proved your point. I cannot see any benefit for either you or anyone else.

There are many things that you can break in the real world. A road sign at a T junction for a start. The finger post will project into the roadway and get knocked by passing traffic.

OK, that one is constantly broken for me, as is a lot of stuff on "the AVRfreaks front page". The former constantly marks threads in bold though I have nothing unread in them, and does not mark/show threads where I have unread stuff. The latter has told me for a long time that I have a new PM when I do not.

I use the "View your posts" at the top right of the forum index. That one sucks in functionality, but at least isn't plain wrong.

I see it on Mac Safari browser. Appears to be caused by a post by "wvummarti40@gmail.wvu.edu"

All these years, I never noticed the "maximize" choice. I tried it but it causes way too much white space in my browser which is set to about 2/3 of the 1920 pixel wide monitor I use. The format is so wide that I have a hard time twisting my neck and keeping the horizontal alignment in my eyesight for each row that it's a PITA. So I went back to minimized.

I don't get it. If the "AVRfreaks view" gets too wide then just don't maximize the browser window. But why would you want to spend pixels for some green gooey stuff if not necessary? Oh well, your call.

Indeed it is, the listing of this thread (https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=103834) in the index.

It happens from time to time when some bozo registers a stupidly long ID (often it's ill advisedly their own email address).

When I saw this yesterday I had half a mind to move his thread to the wilderness (security or ASF) so it wouldn't bugger up the display for everyone. But I guess all we can hope is that no one responds to that thread and it eventually drops off the first page (again I thought of locking it)

As our friend in this thread above (thanks "E" ;-)) shows it is only when it's used by the thread originator that it causes real problems in the index.

It's not maximized; it's about 2/3 the width of my monitor. I use firefox with tabs, so it would be ga-ga to change the browser window size as I hop between sites.
That's the reason for saying that what I did.
