    I believe we can fix this by setting in the stylesheet on the CommentBody class overflow: Scroll.

    I think there is another style that may have to be set to get it working properly...Let me test!

    Add a new line in global.css around line 560 or so:
    overflow: auto;
    Overflow: scroll will add scrollbars to all posts, auto will use them only when needed.
  • As far as I know, overflow:auto doesn't work in IE

    Isn't this word wrapping?
    For example:

    <div STYLE="word-wrap: break-word">blablablablablabla</div>

    wrong post sry
  • It isn't word-wrapping, because the string in question has no spaces. It is treated as one word as far as layout goes.

    It is certainly possible to turn character wrapping on and fix that problem, but I doubt that would be acceptable.

    The two main situations in my forum that cause the scroll are big pictures, and long URLs

    Tested with I.E. 6.0--It turns out you have to specify the width, which forces IE to restrict the box and give the scrollbars a fighting chance.

    So you have to add two lines under .CommentBody:
    overflow: auto; width: 99%;

    Here is a demo for others to try:

    MS says that it should work for I.E. 4.0 and later.
  • I seem to remember overflow: scroll working just fine on lechs root styles. And i'm pretty sure scroll bars only popped up when they were needed. I might be going insane though.
  • Thanx guys, am still working on it!!!!
  • i need another way.... this way is not good >... ):
  • Well... the only way to break it without the scrollbar would be to insert a breaking character (such as a space) at intervals in the string, whenever the string runs on without one. (Google does this with the green text below their search results, if you try it in I.E.) Splitting is not recommended if the text is copy/paste code or URLs. But clickable URL text could be split in this manner. If you want to limit the width of images, they will have to have width coded in the CSS, which could get ugly. Or use a thumbnailer to show a thumbnailed version with a link to the large image.
  • The scroll thing seems to be acceptable--do you see any problem with that?

    if it's for a clickable url, I would recommend that the function which handles auto-linking possibly be patched (if it already isn't) to shorten the display url after 50+ characters.
