    Cannot see the full page of the Linux Forum


    Somehow I cannot see the whole page of the Forum, and the right side of the page left me guessing the missing words..some pages have long discussions by many participants to a particular topic, and I could not access pages 2,3,4 and so on..I looked all over the page to find a place I can click on to move around the page to see the missing words and the button to go to the next page. Unfortunately, I could not find anything to overcome those issues. Thus, I just have to get help via this coffee lounge.

    I attach a screen shot here, hope it will help you guys to understand the issue I am facing.

    Thanks guys.

    Hello

    Did you use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the page? Doing so should give you access to the entire page.

    None of the mods nor I are in control of the forum layout, so you might want to use the Contact Us link at the bottom of this page to alert those in control of page layout about this issue. On your behalf, I've sent them a note about the described issue and your thread as well.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I've not had this problem on this forum. Which browser are you using? It Kind of looks like Firefox but it's pretty small. Try re-sizing your browser. don't just minimize and maximize, I mean grab the corner of your browser and shrink it and then click on the maximize button. This trick works on another forum I visit. Let us know if it works for you.

    I see this too. Resize the browser window so it is narrow and eventually you can't see all the text and there no scrollbar.

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.

    Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner. I see the same thing. No scroll bar for side to side movement.

    What actually causes it is a style attribute on the body element of the pages. It sets the horizontal overflow to hidden. A simple fix really...

    This is a stylish rule that should fix the issue

    Code:
    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
    
    @-moz-document domain("www.linuxforums.org") {
        body {
            overflow-x: auto !important;
        }
    }

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
    It'll happen to you too."

    You probably have activated "Zoom Text only" which really messes up a website.
