    I just looked at the page source info for this site. It's dynamic; meaning it should resize according to your screen resolution. I'm more inclined to lean toward something in your browser is preventing it from properly rendering.

    You said you use Internet Explorer. What version? MS is up to IE9 now.

    I know from doing some websites IE6, 7 & 8 all have their little bugaboos that cause websites to render poorly. I'm doing a site right now for my gun club and I'm getting complaints (mostly from codgers) that they can't see certain things or the registration page won't come up. I nearly always tell them to upgrade their IE and the problems go away. Also clear out your cache.

    Or better yet try Firefox or Google chrome.

    We'll try to walk you through this. Hate to see anyone driven off by inability to see the screen.

    My issur is not being able to see it all or read it. My problem is when I have a favorites window on the left side of the screen (about 1 1/2 inch wide) then the lines in the posts run into the right margin and to correct it I have to do 1 of 2 things. !) Page the screen back and forth to read the missinf print on the right. or 2) Close the favorites collum. If I give the forum access to the full screen, everything shows. If I have any side windows the forus does not automaticly resize to show a full line. I have 3 computers and it happens on all three. I have windows xp home edition 3rd version and windows Vista 7 latest edition.

    But what version of Internet Explorer are you using?
    I'm betting 6 or 7.

    With the browser open, look on the toolbar, maybe under help, not sure.
    Find "About Internet Explorer" That will tell you what version.
