Formatting: I was having trouble with the width of the comment/posting field today on a 12" powerbook.

The ads are overlapping the comment/post field. I have to maximize the browser window and still can barely see the editing buttons or the grab to resize the text field manually..

There's a lot of real estate to the left of this form (side nav on rest of site) that probably could be reclaimed. Or change the css level for the ads?

I know one can block ads, but that's not the point. :)

I even had the text smaller (using Firefox), but at readable font sizes I can't see anything to the right below the ads.

Increasing the font size makes the posted text legible, but the text field HUGE and the box bleeds BEYOND the background green!

I'll take a look. It's tough for me to jack with the CSS without hosing a lot of other stuff. You should be able to post on any size screen here, aside perhaps from phones.

Works fine on an iPhone, my spelling to one side. Can you please git, svn or google code the source so we can add patches soon? That would be an interesting community experiment.

If you don't mind me adding this bit of weirdness in this thread: when you edit a post, you lose all line breaks. Windows Vista, Firefox 3.0.7.

Echoing NoMich, whatever handling is being done to convert linebreaks into break tags or grafs is being lost when it gets sent back to the browser on edit.

I think I have this one fixed. Give it a try by editing a comment split over two paragraphs and let me know if it works.

Testing ... worked for me.

(on edit: that works for me)
