Post subject:  "Text Wrap" problems

I seem to notice that more threads are getting a little more difficult to read. Take for example "Favorite Version of the Bible". So far page 4 is working great, but page 3 requires that I keep shifting the page left to right to be able to read the context of the replies. Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know how I can fix it if it just something I am seeing on my screen?

Thank you in advance for any help, it is a small issue but just a little frustrating sometimes.

Peace,
Micheal

Micheal,

This is due to the long URLs posted; they each need to be contained within one line of text, so the viewing screen widens to accomodate this. Shows up the same way on my (old) computer.

The way to fix it is for the original poster (or the Admin when they're not really busy) to place really, really, really long web addresses inside a url tag.

The code looks like this:
Code:
[url=http://really_really_really_really_long_address.com]SHORT LINK NAME[/url]


which looks like this when posted:
SHORT LINK NAME
