Tell me why the second photo in the following thread is so squished up, or, do you not see that either?

And why is there boo-coo pages in one thread that one must go painstakingly sifting through and not a separate forum where each problem could be separate and easy to find.

Jim, the pictures in the link above look fine to me, and I checked them on all four of my computers - home office, OGR office, laptop and IPad. The "squished" pictures appears to be a browser issue. What browser are you running?

 

The SECOND picture (the BN caboose) was not uploaded here. It is linked from another site. We have no control over how images from other sites may be displayed.

Look, I know you are not happy with the problems you are having. But just complaining about them and taking issue with the fact that you have to do a little searching to find them is not going to help you FIX the problem. In retrospect, perhaps I should have built a separate "Problems and Questions" forum, but I didn't think to do that.

I'll be happy to give you some one-on-one if that will help. Email Me and let me see if I can help you figure things out.

 "Choose Member Name" Have you actually tried to do this? What a pain in the butt.

That is the problem that there are several fixed size objects on the pages. The Left and Right columns, quote boxes and photo box are fixed at a certain pixel. If you hit a page where the total of the fixed items width exceeds the resolution of the space your browser has to work with items will be shoved off the right side of the browser

 

So why so some pages work fine. It has to do with the center column (body of the thread), normally the center column without images or quote boxes auto resize to fit within the area available to the browser minus the the left and right fixed columns

 

Now when a thread has a fixed element (photo box or quotes) inside the center column it cannot resize any smaller than the fixed item inside of it. When  left column+right column + fixed element inside the center column exceeds the area (pixels) available to the browser to display it will start running things off the right side and you have to scroll back and forth to see it all. Once again this seems most prevalent on those with 17 inch or smaller monitors and resolutions set to 1280 or below

 

And whats so hard about choose member name, it click and press button. You can filter it down so you don't have to look through the entire member list. Granted not as easy as the old search, but actually more powerful

 

Here is a little bit I wrote up on how to use it

And the picture of the green caboose looks normal here as well

Ok, I now see what Jim is talking about. Another Hoop.la design/coding flaw. Here's one thread. Notice the right side is chopped out: Screen Shot 2012-02-06 at 9.34.37 AM Here is a screen shot of the thread right below the above one. No issues: Screen Shot 2012-02-06 at 9.35.03 AM


See all those bookmarks on the left in my screenshots.  There are more that aren't shown.  Probably 50 of them are online forums that I've been part of for at least 10 years, just like OGR.   So far Hoop.la is the only one, for me, that does the fixed object sizing in the center column.    My browser is just fine, so is my monitor, and settings.
Hoop.la needs to stop reinventing the wheel with things that have been standards, and proven to work for so long.
