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.

[Corion]: Hi Discipulus!
[marto]: hopefully you guys are also well :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - I'm looking for a week off in a week, even if it'll be a trip to Amsterdam ;)
[Discipulus]: oh thanks, i'm always at well as the ratchet or bucket
[Corion]: But I'm slowly starting to get into programming again - yesterday I translated my talk for YAPC::E (in Amsterdam) to English, and decided to put my Jekyll-clone to rest for the time being
[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
