    Default Question about width of paragraphs in the posts.

    Why are my posts to various threads always half the page wide instead of full page? Same thing happens on PM's they are ever decreasingly narrow especially if you use the respond with quote function. Is there some secret to having posts take up the full width of the page rather half?

    I noticed that, too. It's a pain. The good new is it's a simple fix for Grant.

    I noticed it only happens to the first and last post in a thread. After looking through the source I found the first and last post in a thread has a CSS style for advertisements which forces a 300px right margin.

    First and last post:
    <div class="content has_ad">

    All others:
    <div class="content">

    Style in showthread-rollup.css:
    .has_ad {
    display: block;
    margin-right: 300px;
    }

    I've noticed that, too. DocManCC, you have explained it. When my post is no longer the last post, it becomes a more normal width.

    Yes it's in the first and last posts. There is going to be a vBulletin software updte next week, which is supposed to fix this.

    Wow. Thank you DocmanCC for way more explanation than I thought would be available. I can see it is now characteristic of first and last posts. Grant, I appreciate the recognition of this and the possible fix coming. Excellent!

    ahhh ... I was wondering about that too. Funny, I never noticed that it changed after my post wasn't the last one any longer.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Yeah, it is quite weird. My first thought is that it was adblock interfering with the integrated ads so I disabled adblock but it was still happening. Hopefully it gets fixed soon
