    Main webpage not resizing based on screen resolution

    Forums seem better and fit the screen nicely but the main website is pretty unusable. Its not resizing based on screen resolution; this is causing lots of left and right scrolling.

    Well not unusable just very fiddly at 1024x768

    EDIT: When you post in threads with polls the post isnt there.

    Just to comment on this, it appears to upsize fine, just not shrink.

    Yeh its to do with the ad banner system. I should get it fixed soon.
    Also the posts should now show up in the polls.

    Sorry to have a small moan here, but firstley a nice comment loving the VB Forums Much better than the old ones

    But, sorry for a moan, but is it me or does the site just look clumsy now and well "Fisher Price" as it were?

    The top header, on my 19" TFT running at 1280x1024, just looks huuuuuuuuge. Also the blue strip around the edge needs to go all the way around the edge of the site so as to frame the entire site, top banner and all, or needs to be lost and replaced with silvery colour instead as its just looks strange.

    Also the Welcome John, you last visited.... box also needs rescaling as that is again huuuuuuuge.

    Sorry for the "moans" but i do like the new idea and forum software it is much better honest, just small niggles really

    I'll second John on the banner thing. (I'm on a 19" wide screen so 1440x900).

    The links bar with the News, Forums etc links in it appears to be rounded to match the bottom of the page if you see what I mean. So it's like it's designed to be a separate entity within the page as opposed to overlapping the header which could maybe be rounded and become a floaty entity of it's own too?

    (Sorry for all the naff terminology...you wouldn't know that I've got an a-level in product design!)

    a few moments ago the site went down and it actually looked better when it wasn't loading the top bar as its got its blue border all the way around, so the silver stuff must float over the blue. If you look at the attached you will see what I mean, I know the navbar is missing, but if thats put back on its just the very top bar that needs then looking at really and the proportions of it and all will be good
