it does not re-flow and I have to scroll vertically to read the message.
I think we are understanding what you're saying... but we're saying that we (the ones that responded) are not having this same problem.
What browser are you using? Have you tried different browsers?
Also, I don't think that there are individual settings for the different forum sections (as far as design and layout), so if it's working in one section of the forum, it should be working in all of them.
Which way do you have to scroll again? In your OP you said horizontal, but in your last post you said vertical. You should not have to scroll horizontally in a topic unless there is a large picture that forces the post area to a larger size. You will be doing a lot of vertical scrolling, especially if you zoom in far on a long post. I assume you meant horizontally, as that is what you said in your OP.
Sorry about the mistake,. I did mean horizontal scrolling. BTW, I am not talking about tablets. The pinch zoom on a tablet is not the same thing as re-flow.
I use IE9 and Firefox on a regular basis and installed Chrome to check it using this forum. I checked all three browsers on four different laptops and they all behaved in the same way. The message side of this forum does not re-flow. If you reply to a message, you will be shown a text entry box which does re-flow. It looks like viking is seeing the same thing on his Macbook.
Re-flow is not hard to implement. In fact I ran across a web site that had a CSS generator for this purpose. Just fill in the blanks. Box size, font face and size, colors etc and it will generate the CSS to plug in. BTW, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are used to define HTML web pages.
