in reply to Monastery Gates page is too wide

I too experience this problem (in all browsers). My guess is that we both followed the advice for a larger textarea as you describe above.

After some experimentation, I made the following changes to fix the problem:

textarea { width: 75%; height: 25em; }

And through some quirk of fate, I added a lengthy url to my Personal Nodelet that forces the nodelet bar to be wider than normal.

Now I enjoy the Monastery without the annoying horizontal scroll bar you mention above, my chatterbox is a nice width for reading, and I still have a sufficiently large textarea for comfortable use.

    You're the winner! Changing my textarea to 75% worked! I no longer have ultra wide front pages.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions everyone.

    Setting TextArea.width to 95% is even better, since it is closer to my original intent, but the effect upon the front page that I was experiencing is still gone.

    Thanks again for the tip.
