Hello everyone... Not sure if this is the right place or not, but here goes...

I have seen lots of us having problems with masses of space in our posts, usually at the end, or after images. This usually happens to those of us who use Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser to access the internet. (You will know if you do - if you click the big blue "e" icon to access the internet). This seems to have started happening with version 10 of the software, which has probably been automatically downloaded and installed onto your computers as part of the Microsoft updates that get applied from time to time.

Internet Explorer has a reputation for 'misbehaving' with many websites, and any web developer will tell you that it's the bane of their lives. And in this case, it's responsible for all of your spacing being all over the place, I believe.

Thankfully, there is a fix. You can tell Internet Explorer to "behave". You do this by putting it into "Compatibility View", which is a little icon of a broken page next to the address. I have circled it in red below:




Once you press this and turn it blue, the spacing problems will stop the next time you write a post. (Or at least, they did for me!). You will also notice that the buttons when posting will be a little better arranged.

The setting will be remembered, so that you shouldn't need to press it again.

I hope this helps someone!?

Note to forum administrators - do you have access to the source files of the forum? If you do, then there is something you can add to each page that will force compatibility view. Give me a PM if you need info.

The problem I get with Google Chrome is no paragraph spacing at all, despite putting spaces in as I type.  I have to submit and then edit to insert spaces.  Not a huge issue but mildly irritating.

I converted to Firefox as I was suffering from this issue, however just for fun I thought I would try out your suggestion. Opened up in Explorer. I have clicked the little Icon and it seemed to have done something as it twirled away for a bit.

Will add a picture:




add a bit of spacing

Bob and click................

Why is it that I don't get any of this trouble?, see...

Perfect spacing between sentences.

YAY!

Allan.
