    I've an issue with the current release (older releases are ok) of Vbulliten and WIN8/IE10. And it appears to happen on TB. The on demand line shift function does not work correctly but the auto wrap around works. There are not a lot of folks using WIN8 yet so not many folks are effected. A work around is to click a/ A

    An ADM on another site gave me the work around and said the next release of Vbulletin will have a fix for this WIN8 issue.

    See ya

    There are other bugs needing a patch, to be compatible with vB. For example, the "Enter" key does not function when trying to post any message, PM, Groups, Forum. You cannot use it to break to a new line or start a new paragraph. All you can do is one messy, long run-on paragraph.

    I'd rather have W7. Oh well.

    Since we're discussing Vb bugs....XP Pro, SP3, IE8, page wrap is all messed up.
    Pictures overlap on wrong side of page sometimes, on menu bar, the "search" window overlaps to the left a LONG way, clear into the "s" in TB Albums, and over on the left, have no idea what is under "Quick Click", as it is two links superimposed.

    What is your display (pixels) setting?

    I don't want this to get out of hand and turn into a big negative post

    I'm not discussing VB and any other possible bugs. Only a specific issue with WIN8 and the current installed release of VB.

    The line skip is at issue for me and a work around I use until the next release of VB is to click the upper left corner "a/A"

    Yep I too prefer WIN7 and IE9 but Mickeymousesoft does not give you an easy choice with a new PC.

    See ya

    Big enough to read!
    1024X768 is what it says.

    This setting is most likely the problem. What size (inches) is your screen? Can you try something different, such as 1400 by 1050 pixels?

    About 10X12. Get any more packed in, I won't be able to read it.

    If you are using Windows 7 try the following.....

    - Right-click in the middle of the Desktop, then select Screen Resolution.
    - Select the highest resolution on the Resolution menu, e.g. 1920x1080.
    - Then select Make Text and Other Items Larger or Smaller just below the Screen Resolution window.
    - Select Larger-150% on the Make It Easier To Read screen.

    This should allow more information to be displayed, while still allowing you to read the info conveniently.

    Thnaks, Hank. This is exactly where I was going.

    Sounds like he has about a 15" screen. He needs to go much larger resolution than at present. The current pixel size in use is at least part of why things are wrapping for him.

    The same idea will be true if using XPH or XPP. Right mouse click on the Desktop, click Properties, click the Settings tab. Largest will likely be 1600x900. Then in the browser at top left find "View", "Text Size", "Largest".

    Biggest was 3200X something. If I get too big, I end up scrolling the screen. XP Pro as stated in my first post, and I'm not complaining. This is the only website I use that has this issue. Full stop.
    I can live with it, once I know what is hidden under the "quick click" in the menu bar.

    I've got it to 1440X900, and I cannot read it at all. I suppose I could go get the magnifying loupe from the shop, but that won't be real handy.
    Going back to "readable" now!
    Dave

    BTW, if I change the size of the print (ctrl and roll) I get almost back, but elongated, and the menu is overlapped again.

    Maybe the problem is IE

    I visit this site using 3 different computers using 3 different operating systems, XP Pro, Vista, and Win 7 without any of the problems mentioned.

    I use Firefox, so maybe the problem is with IE.

    I worked for a company that produced a web based application using IE6. When IE7 came out the application would not work. Thank you MS
