Why do some posts not "wrap-around"for longer sentences?

With no wrap-around the words go off the screen and use of the slide bar is required.

I think maybe it might have something to do with an attachment being too large to fit the standard width. I see this in other forums as well, not just this one!

BINGO!!

People just need to resize the pics they include in a thread to prevent this from occuring.

It also happens with long URLs.

Some URLs, especially those from eBay are horrible.
If folks would just please visit www.tinyurl.com and convert the eBay URL to a shorter one, it helps a lot.

Also, if pictures were sized for 640x480 or smaller, that will keep the screen from scrolling.

The new forum software is hopefully going to "wrap" long URLs better. The current forum software sometimes will wrap long URLs, but not always.

Or better yet, embed the URL in the text and don't show it at all.
