    When I view posts if there is a photo in it the photo does not fit inside the post viewing window and I have to slide the bar back and forthe to see the photo. for the most poart it is rare to be able to get the picture put togethere except in  my mind.

    Is there a way to reduce the size of the addvertisements on the right to make the window bigger?

    Any direction would be appriciated.

    What is the resolution of your monitor right now? Also what browser are you using and what operating system are you using?

    The reason I am asking about the resolution is because I think the site is optimized for 1024x768 which means if you have it set to something lower than this (800x600 for instance) it will make you scroll to see it all.

    I am going to double check on this to make sure I am correct.

    It could also be a bug of some sort and I will be reporting this to Huddler as well to make sure they are aware of the situation.

    To make the forum area of the platform stretch to the width of your monitor, click on "Profile" at the top and click on "Account Details". Then scroll down and select the checkbox next to "View Forums Full Width".

    This preference allows you to view all forum pages (including the main forum area, all sub-forums, all thread pages, and the All New Posts page) at the full width of your browser window.

    This does not do away with the right sidebar but does optimize the viewing area of the forum.

    That took care of it on my laptop Jeff, I will see what it does for the desktops later today.
