I appreciate your effort to alleviate this problem...just doesn't work for me. Maybe I'll try another browser or something....very disappointed

Edit: tried firefox...sucks, don't want to use that google thing so I guess it was nice while it lasted.

In IE (IE 9 at least, I don't have IE8) you can go to Zoom - Custom and enter a custom level. Does 120% work (vs 125%)? Maybe 124% works, etc. Otherwise you can use that tool I posted, I think the idea is don't make images bigger - only text. That is the main problem here, the zoom feature is making images bigger not just text, which causes all kinds of problems.

I tested the site using 1200px wide and it works fine with 125% zoom in IE9 on all posts, including posts with embedded images. The only issue was on pages where someone quotes another persons post, which has embedded images.

So if you are still seeing a problem, then that doesn't make sense to me. 1200px wide, yes? Or was it 1024px wide? If 1024px wide, I don't see how it was ever working.

Yep 1280 x 1024...on main page there was a scroll bar but if I went into a thread there would be no scroll bar. I could live with the way it was but now I would have to scroll to read the posts in threads. I tried a few other things but am still not happy....
This stinks...like I said this is the ONLY site I have this issue with. Frankly it's so annoying I don't want to deal with it. I guess I'll go play in a different sandbox.

It should be fine on 1280px wide. All I can say is it works fine on my system, IE9, 125% zoom at 1280px wide when there is not a post where a user has quoted another embedded image. So if you are certain that you are testing on a page where a quoted embedded image does not exist in the thread, then there is something else different on your end that works fine on a regular plain IE9 install.

I don't have access to IE8. My IE9 is "out of the box", nothing added to it as I only use it for compatibility testing and not for my main browser.

It works fine on Chrome and Firefox as well. I tested on two different machines.

Your options:

a) try to troubleshoot the difference on why mine works, yours doesn't. Give me a specific thread URL to test against.
b) look at add-ons that don't enlarge images, but only text
c) try using firefox or chrome
d) don't use zoom
e) don't use 125% zoom, but instead 124%, 123%, 122%, 121%, 120% or something that works
f) buy a bigger monitor
g) confirm you are viewing full screen

Sorry I can't be of more help. I just checked Google Analytics again, ranked by visitor traffic, by my calculations less than 2% of people viewing the site don't have the capability to display a resolution big enough to avoid a scrollbar. And those may be from mobile devices, not the primary user desktop. So I have to do what works best for the majority.

Here is a screenshot that shows even with the 'user poll', 125% zoom works at 1200px wide with no scrollbar.

The image is 1200px wide - no scrollbar.



Again, this is with 125% zoom. It will work with much less at normal zoom level.

Showing 125% zoom:



Dimensions are 1200px wide.

Today the Twitter "follow", Facebook "like", and Google "+1" buttons have all been moved to asynchronous loading instead of synchronous. Took me long enough, but finally got it done.

This means that if one of them is slow to load (Twitter slow, Facebook slow, Google slow) then it won't slow down the loading of futures.io (formerly BMT) pages.

Standard vBulletin terminology is Mark Forums Read. In reality, you can call it Mark Posts Read, it makes zero difference - they are both conveying the same information and the same end result. So I will leave it as-is.
