    I'm not very computer litterate (sp) so I hope someone knows this. Today, when I click on a thread such as the one about useless homestead pets, I have to keep moving the page over to read the sentences because the page is so wide. (I hope this makes sense). Does anyone know why? It doesn't do this all the time, but occasionally it does.

    Sally...It's because someone posted a very large picture....the other posts like this one should be sized correctly....

    If you have a mouse with a "scroll/wheel" on it, you can resize the page you are looking at by holding down the contrl [Ctrl] button and turning the wheel, iether up or down.-- Hope this helps :)

    When someone posts pictures that are large, the entire thread is resized to accommodate it, so you'll have to scroll left to right to read everything that's said.

    or go to the View button on your toolbar, click on the part of the drop down menu that says text size, then select either increse or decrease.
