    WAB display problem?

    On both my Mac and XP computers, WAB is displaying compressed somewhat horizontally. Under the search box you can see some of the text overlapping. And the WAB window has alot of space on either side. Anyone else seeing this?

    Two factors:

    • the navigation bar has too much stuff on it (needs to be fixed)
    • your monitor may be too small (also probably needs to be fixed )

    Until a few days ago the visible width of the board itself was wider and the text in the nav bar was OK and I suspect nothing has been added.

    On the screenshot below, the width of the board itself is narrower than it was a few days ago.

    Come to think of it, I think I remember the same thing. There's a lot of blank space on either side in my browser window now, don't think it was there before. The notification at the very top of the page about the changes being made to the WAB is gone too, but maybe that's intentional?
    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

    Full screenshots please (from everybody).

    Remember, this is a tech issue. Need exact, specific information to proceed.

    I can't pinpoint an issue otherwise.

    I've fixed the forum width to 1020px maximum, scaling down to 650px depending on screen resolution.

    I'm going to create a full-screen version of WAB for those who want the whole thing to show up.

    Need specific feedback on the current format before proceeding with full-width version.

    2 problems, 1 is graphic the other is in the code for the background size I beleive, I would have to log in on my server and check the exact css code that is off, it has to do with how the css is handled.
