Did the forum list view change?

    All of a sudden the column for TRACK THIS in the forum list view, when doing a search by "Updated since last login" or "I've tracked" and so forth, has gone right off my window. Now I have to scroll to find it. If seems like the Topic column got much wider, but not sure if that's the case. Part of the LAST POST column next to TRACK THIS is also clipped for me now.

    Anyone notice the same thing, or see changes in other thread views? I keep my browser window large because of my eyesight, using the whole screen already and so don't have any room to enlarge it further.

    Two reasons..

    - Someone created a very long thread title with no spaces. And it stretched the first column out.
    - A new user created a very long username with no spaces. And it stretched the second column.

    Solution:

    The RJ admins need to limit the character length on thread titles, and/or automatically truncate after XX characters. They already truncate long usernames when you view a thread topic. I don't see why they can't do it when you view the forum list.

    In the past long thread titles simply wrapped to several lines. But now it's back to the way it was, so still not sure if my browser or what. Other non-RJ online windows didn't change their aspects, only RJ.

    It's true, though, that someone posted a long HAHAHAHAHA... thread title, without a space break, so perhaps that threw the RJ software off. icon_question.gif
