× Did you know you can have multiple images on a post?
Simply keep adding images until you are done. You may also "insert" an image into the post rather than just attaching it!

Why is part of my screen black? was created by JimBSeafair
Hi: I am having trouble reading posts because the right third of my screen is dark, except for posted photos, which do show all the way across. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Hey Jim,
I think it's in the coding of the site. You need to make sure your pics do not exceed 800 pixels in width. Since I'm not a web guru I don't know for sure. But that seems to work for me.

That does seem to be a problem. 700 pixel width is the 'official' size suggestion, but big pictures are a problem. Seems to be moreso using Mozilla Firefox than using Internet Explorer. In the past I've had long links run into the black on Firefox where IE will put the link on 2 lines if it's a long one. Size large pictures seem to be the main culprit, though.
If anyone needs a program and instructions on picture sizing look on the general forum under 'Just purchased 1967 Seafair Sedan' second page. A link below.

This link is long enough that it runs a little into black on Firefox....just an example.

The problem I'm having is not with pictures but with the text of postings. The pictures posted show fine all the way across the page, but the right one-third or so of text is blacked out.

Well the thing is that the pictures cause the screen to stretch out too wide, along with the text. The defualt background color happens to be black. The text is actually there but it is hard to read. At a minimum if the background was set to white you could at least read the text when the boundaries are over shot.
