Revised theme now live...

Where is the choice to view comments as nested or flat or ? I have it set up in my account, but I cannot see the menu any more.

It's in the usual place but may not be on your screen because horizontal scrolling has been triggered. Stay near the top and scroll to the right.

Ah thank you.

Is there a preference setting to prevent horizontal triggering (aka wrap)?

Enable/disable 'wrap'?

robg would need to answer that as I don't know anything about Geeklog. AFAIK we users can't disable it once a previous post has caused it with a long line containing no spaces or just non-breaking spaces. I would be pleased if we could - it's a nuisance on all sites when it happens.

We can, though, be kind to others by doing this!

Should have this added to the MacOSXHints [pre] tag styles CSS:
pre {
overflow-x: auto; /* Use horizontal scroller if needed; for Firefox 2, not needed in Firefox 3 */
white-space: pre-wrap; /* css-3 */
white-space: -moz-pre-wrap !important; /* Mozilla, since 1999 */
white-space: -pre-wrap; /* Opera 4-6 */
white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera 7 */
word-wrap: break-word; /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */
}

---
Madness takes its toll.
Please have exact change.

The problem isn't the pre code -- well, yes, that's a problem as well. However, if you look at what caused the screen to grow horizontally in this thread, it's a long line of JavaScript *plain text*. However, there aren't any spaces in the JavaScript, so the browser can't figure out where to break it.

I'm not aware of any CSS to handle wrapping of indeterminate-length pure text strings -- but if such a thing exists, please post it!

regards,
-rob.
