I can't remember! I know I had to use the faqs to figure it out, but now when I do that, I can't seem to find the answer.

Tell me about it!

Thank you! That option was not there yesterday! Now, how do you make a custom slogan under your user name?

Thanks x117236, I had everything from the beginning, I'm going to assume it was by accident. Just wondered

Hardware:

Websleuths runs on a server that belongs to Websleuths.com, LLC. It is located in Houston, Texas at The Planet, a large dedicated hosting facility. It is a 4 CPU server class machine with SCSI drives running the Linux operating system. This systems hosts websleuths.com, forumsforjustice.org and justiceforallspeakers.com

Software:

The forum is handled by the vBulletin forum package, a very popular and full featured system used by many message boards. We keep it updated as Jelsoft comes out with new versions and fixes.

The storage of the message board database - the posts, the forum layouts, the membership recors, etc. - is handled by a couple of MySQL databases running on the server.

Is there something wrong with me and my download of WS or do other people experience the same blown out margins that I do almost constantly now? It drives me CRAZY and I find myself just giving up and leaving most days because it's too annoying to scroll wayyyyyyyyyyyyy over to read comments.

I think each time the home page is updated with a new announcement it blows the margins for me. Other times is when a picture is too large and posted.

I just have the main page again being huge with the new announcement!

Are you talking about the forum page that lists all the forums, or the front page where the Top Headlines and such are at?

Oops, just saw your post (months later). Yes, that is the page. Haven't had any problems lately with it though.

However, today in Lisa Irwin's forum I'll hit last post on a thread and there's a next page showing, you can't get to that next page...It was on a two threads that I've seen today. MSM & I think the Jersey & MW thread. I logged out and back in but it's still there. I've never seen that before. I've hit last post and I've seen where there was a next page due to the timing of a new post posting, but in this case, there isn't a next page to get to.

If I go by the post number, like #418, you shouldn't have a next page at that point anyway. No biggy, just confusing.

The ad on top, the big one, slows my computer down to a c r a w l, and I have a new, fast computer.
