Hi Guys,

I first posted here yesterday and have since realised that when you post large pictures the text goes off the page.

It doesn't give you a scroll bar (it just truncates the rendered page).

This happens using Firefox and IE.

TEST:
aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa

It must also have something to do with leaving spaces in text because my test2 post didn't have any spaces and so made the page render larger.

It will word wrap but you still miss the end of lines. Look to the right and see the reply link is cut in two.

OK turns out there is a frame scroll bar at the bottom of the page. But that is REALLY bad user interface design. Like me most users won't know it is there. And you have to scroll to the end of the page just to read the first post.

The forum mods should kill the frame scroll bar and just have the page render fully. Users would then just use the browser page scroll bar.

While we're at it, there's no "new topic" link on the main page. I spent a while looking for it. VERY confusing.

I know you're all used to it by now, but making it difficult for first timers is not OK.

Add to that that you can end up with double scroll bars. One for frame and one for page. That makes it both confusing and annoying.
