Question for Justin

Specs: XP Home SP3, 3.0 / 1gig
I've noticed that when I make an initial posting the
end result appears narrow - 53 characters wide,
for example with this post. However some other
posters get a full width post, and subsequent
posts after my initial one are wider. Just a small,
but slightly annoying, observation. If you want examples I'll link to them.

In fact, I just added the bit about linking to them and the added bit has come out full width - is this the secret, to edit before posting?

Please feel free to file this under 'inane question of the day...

Hey,

Are you entering the enter key? You should just let the post wrap itself as you type. If you are doing that and it is still happening, you might be running some sort of security suite that is entering those carriage returns as message moves through it.

No, not using the 'enter' key, it's just the displayed result of
the initial post comes out with the same width as the box
that I type in. On any subsequent replies then it fills the whole
width of the 'normal' box. Only security suite I'm using is
Kaspersky. I generally use Chrome browser, if that makes any
difference.

Notice that the first part of this post is actually still narrower than the others - no 'return' used, just typing in...... Just edited it because the edited part has come out full width - most bizarre.

See, the 'just testing' I did above hasn't got any breaks in it and
it's wrapped around of its own accord - what did jam do to get the
slider bar?

Ah, now what I did there was to preview it (I generally don't bother) and then took out the line breaks that had appeared. I really ought to get a life....

There's an example of someone else with the same issue HERE

Honest, I am off down the pub now, there are bigger issues in life, it's just the small ones that annoy! ;-)

Something that may be connected. When I add a link like the one above, I always have to check it beforehand because the system usually adds a break in the address and so doesn't it show as a link - I have to remove the added line break.

Usually when the text in
the post only has a limited
number of characters per
line, either the poster used
the Enter key, or typed the
text in another program,
then copied/pasted the text
into the Post Reply box.

Hey,

That is really weird. I am writing this response in chrome, and it did what you were talking about. So, the problem is with Chrome. Let me research this. However, until I can, at least we tracked it down. Also, using Firefox will fix it.

Thanks,
Justin

Hey,

This one is posted with chrome again. I believe I have fixed it. Let me know! It was just a simple HTML difference between Chrome and Firefox.

Thanks for telling me about it!

Thanks Justin. Yes, it does resolve it - just tried a new post & it previewed fine.
