  • Why did the size of the edit box change?

    Josh, some time ago, maybe three weeks, the size of the reply edit window changed from the old 70-some characters to what is now only 36 characters wide(see below).

    I don't know if anyone else is seeing this but it appears this way to me on three different computers, so I don't think it is a setting on my end but more likely something that changed in the forum software.

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

          Mine stayed the same here as it has been. If you want, click on UserCP and then on Edit Options. Work down and you can select from 3 editing modes. Maybe you'll like one of the others better than the current setting. I use the middle default editor over the WYSIWYG editor.

              Yep, you are right Woussko. it appears it only occurs when the WYSIWYG editor is selected. I went to the User CP and set it to standard and everything worked fine, went back in and set it to WYSIWYG and it is back to only 36 characters wide.
