Ok - first, I'm using Safari (Mac, iPad, etc.) and constantly see the following issue:

EXTREMELY WIDE POSTS. The text area is WALL TO WALL, and I have to scroll back and forth to see all of it. I've got a 27" screen, and I literally have to make the browser window occupy 90%+ of the screen width to avoid scrolling horizontally. This happens when creating posts, and many times reading posts. Like something has fixed the width of the text boxes for not only reading, but creating posts.

No matter how wide I make the browser window, the text area for posting (like this post), or reading goes on "forever", making the screen scroll all the time horizontally.

I see nothing in settings that would affect this - so it appears to be something buried within the CSS, etc. of the site. Can someone fix this?

I am using the Safari browser on a 27" IMac and also on my iPad and have never had issues that you are having. Something so simple that I am sure you have tried it is in the "View" area of the toolbar, hit "actual size".
Good Luck

Try going into your Settings, then click on General, now click on Accessibility. See if changing any of the settings for Text will solve your problem. Good Luck.

Tim I have the same issue. I don't think it is the viewing portion as much as the posting portion.

My browser is Chrome using version 38.0.XXX and have not see this issue on a regular basis. The only time I run into this issue is when someone posts a photo that has not been cropped down to a usable size.

Tim on our ipad and iphones we are not experiencing any problems. On my desktop with Windows Vista, when viewing outbackers.com I have to click on the Tools from the dropdown menu and select compatibility view. Doing this all of the features listed under the profile dropdown work properly. Also when I use Word to compose my post, when I copy and paste my post the spacing between the words is correct. Good Luck.

Robert
