Embed forum not showing correctly on a PC

My forum,, is showing up correctly on my mac but not on a PC.

It's showing up full screen on my mac, but on a PC (Chrome) it's showing only half the screen.

Can you advise?

    not the answer you wanted but...
    best advice you are going to receive - don't embed your forum, it's not worth the agony. many things are iffy with embedding, some plugin don't work correctly, frame size truncates, some jquery won't work inside iframe, some css won't perform the same way - absolute positiioning, etc.

    see the stories of people who gave on the idea of embedding and went the non-embedded route

    search for embedded vs. non-embedded to see war-stories.

    design the forum with theme, banner and menu to match your site instead.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    I agree with peregrine whole heartedly.

    Your template is relatively simple and clean. Best advice would be replicate the header and footer in vanilla theme, and don't embed. I only support embed with clients where the forum is a private community.

    SEO wise it is also better not to embed.

    grep is your friend.

    Your WP theme is imposing a width restriction on the #Content div. Line 809 in your theme's style .css. I suggest you override that with a local style.

    Please take a look at the tutorial how to embed your forum in wordpress.

    There is a part that explains how to edit the style of the forum page only specifically so the forum fits.
