Hi smile

Something has gone wrong with all the menu bars on the different pages of FT - the normal links such as "Games", Quizzes", Services" Help etc are all squashed into a tiny corner on the left - but there three huge spaces on the rest on that section my name and two others.

It's changed on the home page as well, but hasn't all been squashed to one side or the other. It's the link pages that look peculiar.

Can I fix it?

Never mind. It now seems to have altered itself back to what it was basically.

Thanks, anyhow smile

In fact (I'm back again as you see) it looks quite spiffy now. Nice and crisp.

***NEWS ALERT***

There is a mad woman on the prowl. Do not approach as she can be highly volatile. Treat with extreme caution.

lol.

Yes, I've been messing with the headers for the last half hour or so, so you may have seen some weird things.

I've rolling back a bit of that "fixed width" change I made a few months ago. It was really making the site look awful under certain setups.

Terry, your rollbacks and other changes have actually worsened it for me.

I can't see some of the links, things are piled up on top of each other, and the columns are far too narrower. There is plenty of room for this column:

Level 112: 2552 points today
Your Daily Challenges
143 of 227 challenges complete

But for some reason it is squished up to the width of the word "Challenges", with lots and lots of wasted whitespace surrounding the FUN TRIVIA logo, which now takes up a greater footprint of my screen than it did before. There is a great deal of wasted space on the right and left side of the pages, blue borders that are completely unnecessary and forcing the content to pile up on itself.

The "Find" tab is now underlapping the "New" tab for example, and the new quiz titles are unreadable.
