    Minor page layout nit

    I know this is a minor nit, but it is somewhat annoying to me. On the main forums page (and main BBOS page), there's a minimum page width that you have to set your browser to in order to see the whole thing without scrolling horizontally. However, in all the subforums, everything is auto-sizing such that you see 100% no matter how wide you have your browser set.

    This is probably something in the vbulletin html or css, but a quite look at the page source for both the main forums page and a sample subforum page didn't show anything obvious (e.g., no hard coded table widths; everything was width="100%" which is good).

    Hmmm, it's always looked fine to me irrespective of whether I am on a laptop or not. Just checked it out on different browsers (IE8, Firefox, Safari) and looks good.

    I use Firefox 3 on Windows XP and Epiphany or Firefox on Linux. I also tried with IE 6 on WinXP and all of them show the problem. For those of you that aren't seeing it, when you're viewing the top level forums page and change your browser width by dragging the right border, do the forum titles change width when you do that, or do they stay the same and you just see more or less of the title text? When I do it, the main page header, BBOS logo, etc., all dynamically size to fit the browser width, but the forum title listings do not. Once I enter a forum, then all the subtitles and message titles auto adjust to fit the page width.
