That would be normal. Your browser does not fill the screen.
Set it to full screen mode and display will be fine. It will get ride of the scroll bar at the bottom as well.
The forum does not re-size. It is a fixed width to fit that resolution, which Leo determined should be the minimum size.
If your browser is only 800 - 900 px wide, there will be overflow on each side.

No. OpenCart forum also has a fixed width (no horizonral scroll bar) but when i go on it, it's not cut at left in window mode. In full screen, all is ok. Something is bad in your CSS files. Seems all is RIGHT aligned.

style.css says:

Code: Select all

/*  phpBB 3.0 Style Sheet
    --------------------------------------------------------------
	Style name:		proSilver
	Based on style:	proSilver (this is the default phpBB 3 style)
	Original author:	subBlue ( http://www.subBlue.com/ )
	Modified by:		
	
	Copyright 2006 phpBB Group ( http://www.phpbb.com/ )
    --------------------------------------------------------------
*/
body {
	/* Text-Sizing with ems: http://www.clagnut.com/blog/348/ */
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
	color: #828282;
	background-color: #e4e5e6;
	/*font-size: 62.5%;			 This sets the default font size to be equivalent to 10px */
	font-size: 10px;
	margin: 0;
	/*padding: 12px 0;*/
        width: 1010px;
        left: 50%;
        margin-left: -506px;
        position: relative;
}
So, forum is 1010px, centered on pixel 505 (half screen)
If you remove the last 4 lines,

Code: Select all

        width: 1010px;
        left: 50%;
        margin-left: -506px;
        position: relative;
then all goes ok, and horizontal scrollbar is good and functional.

Leo has already done the home page.
It's a little more complicated because the home page, forum, and demo are integrated.
He said he would be able to get at it this weekend.

Thanks, Leo did a great job.
No need to delete anything. Without your noticing that quirk, it would still be there.
Thanks.

Really, you can delete. CSS pbs are solved, finished and forgotten.

If we want everyone to think everything is always perfect, that would be the direction.
The reason for leaving all posts in are to ensure users their questions will be answered and problems resolved as best we can.
Many little bugs or quirks that may not be noticeable when coding are picked out by others. We need that input.
I don't like deleting any posts if possible.

Okie.
My point of view was that merchants will use a software if they trust in it. They investigate time and want to sell their products without being disturbed by little ennoying bugs. I prefer presenting something "squarred".
Second, in forum with many users, the good information is mixed inside many useless posts (resolved, old, particular to an individual, ...) and doing a seach involves reading all that relates to a subject. Takes time when there is 56 pages or so. (and i dont like long quotes on quotes on ...). Thats why i delete/resume (when i can) my old posts.
