    The "CODE" sections of a message aren't reformatted to fit your screen because that could alter the code in unacceptable ways so for messages like that you'll have to use the "other" scroll bar to see the rest of the message.

    It'd help if the non-code parts of the message would reformat and fit the screen but that's as much a limitation of html as it is a specific problem with the forum.
    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.

    That would only introduce a new problem. People would complain that the page size always breaks at a specified length and doesn't adjust to their window size. Besides, I doubt that WA is particularly interested in hacking the vBulletin code.

    You just need to buy a 50 inch monitor like all other members here.
