    Why are the windows so wide in this forum? It makes it difficult to view, as we have to keep scrolling left and right. I have an ibook with 1024 by 768 display.

    Judging by that, these pages are setup to be about 1400 pixels wide, much more than most displays can handle!

    Fix it please. It's relatively easy to change.

    I've been to (and run) customer forums to find the best window width, and 800 seems to be most popular.

    Hi there and welcome,

    as you can see from this thread we are currently updating the forums software so things may be a bit up and down at the moment.

    The normal style is a fluid one which should be fine on a 1024 x 768 display with no left/right scrolling. Can you send a screen grab ?

    This is what I see @ 1024 x 768...

    For any one who is interested, this is the average monitor size of our visitors over the last year ;-)
