I am in the process of thinking through the redesign of the site and was curious if our members could perform a test for us. When browsing the various sections of the site, can you let me know if you can see the entire site, or if portions are cut off and you need to scroll to see the rest of the site?

If portions are cut off, can you please let me know what sections are being cut off for you.

Thanks

I've gone to a lot of BC pages. The only one I have to scroll to the right on is Virus Removal. Currently I'm using my laptop. No clue if it would be the same on the desktop.

No scrolling has to be done on any other pages.

24 inch widescreen, 1920X1080. Vertical scroll only. Sometimes I see things that cannot be unseen..... :blink:  But I never have to scroll left and right.

15.6 inch laptop screen, 1366 x 768.  Keep my browser windowed to about 3/4 screen width.  Home page needs to be scrolled left-right with that configuration.   Would not need to be if I open the browser full screen.  Same in 'Removal Guides' - the guides themself, not the menu page.

 

Don't notice the need to scroll anywhere else.

Just clicked through all the tabs (Forums, Members, Tutorials, etc.) and did not have to scroll left/right in any of them.

 

Screen size:  18.5 widescreen   Res set to:  1366 x 768    Window is always full screen.

Hi,
 
I need to scroll anywhere, where the google search is visible for most of the things that are not related to the forums. So the tabs: Startup List,Virus removal, Uninstall List, File Database.
 
To illustrate:
This is how the page looks, when I load it. It looks perfectly fine and if you hadn't asked to check for scrolling issues, I wouldn't even have noticed there's a scroll bar for left-right:

However, you asked, so I noticed. :lol: If you scroll over all the way to the right, the only thing that "sticks out' and is larger than my screen is the google custom search:
ohnoes.jpg
 
Funnily enough, while using the uploader I realised that the issue is present there too:

The resolution I'm using is: 1280x800
 
regards myrti

What browser are you using. It definitely should not be doing that.

I use 3 different computers, 2 of mine and 1 is at work. I can see the page, side to side, on all of them. I couldn't tell you what the resolution is on them. Sometimes it's too wide, but that's because I've used the old "control and wheel" thing to adjust the page views on other sites. :blink:

I use Firefox on Windows XP Home SP3

Screen resolution: 1280 X 768

Like Myrti, the search box on the The Computer Glossary, The Startup List, Virus, Spyware, & Malware Removal Guides, Uninstall List, and the File Database pages extends past the visual frame that the search box sits in and consequently, I get a horizontal scroll bar. This does NOT happen on the Downloads page. The search box is within the parameters of the box it sits in on that page.
