UBB.threads 7.5.5.

This has been happening for a long time, 3 years, since the current site owner switched from WWWThreads when he acquired the MacMinute name and archives.

Here's one example with a long string of text. It will also do it if someone posts a long URL without using the url tags to make it a link.

And here's one that does it when in threaded mode. When threads get long like that one it always does it.

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks.

yup, that is an issue with how the floated divs and tables ( ubbthreads ) don't always play well together

he is trying to wrap his ubbthreads ( table ) stuff in a left floated div (750px), then have another floated div ( 250px ) for some ads on the right. ( why not just have a ubbthreads side column with an ad there? )

threads isn't contrained to it's 750px width properly and you will get these collisions.

you could do 1 quick thing : edit the style and add a coupla css rules to the body_col class..

width:750px; ( fixes 2nd problem )
word-wrap:break-word; ( fixes 1st problem )
