Text Box Trouble

Anonymous's picture

Whenever I type in the text box, whether it be making a post (like right now) or typing a journal entry, the whole text box gets really wide and goes off the side of the screen so I can't even see what I'm typing. I have no idea what's going on...can someone please help me? Help is much appreciated!!

A solution

I already responded in your journal, but it can't hurt to do it here too... More people might read it!

I have the same problem. So, I compose my journals and forum topics in Notepad. Then, I copy and paste what I wrote into the journal window.

Hey, good idea...

Why didn't I think of that?

Another thing you can do is go to "edit my account" (that's your account, stay the hell out of mine), go all the way down to "Theme Settings" at the bottom, and change it to "xtemplate." This does get rid of that annoying text box glitch, but you lose the super-fab graphics. Any other tips, y'all?

it's doing that to me, too, but i don't know how to stop it. usually i just click the "preview" button to see if i made any mistakes, but sometimes it doesn't work.

I think that's the site at the moment, but offten it does that with versions of netscape or on certain mac operating systems.

I have the same problem when

I have the same problem when im using microsoft explorer on a windows computer. Only on journal entries though, its not doing it right now. I have no problem on my mac computer though. Maybe because I use Camino on my mac and thats a mozilla program and this site seems to be mozilla based. Am i right adriene? cause you have the firefox thing at the bottom.
