Posts Converted to Divs - Overflow Works - Now Testing

Hey,

Success!

I have converted the posts (each of the main posts) from table tags to div tags and the problem with the scroll bar and code tags is fixed, as I predicted (Yay!).

Now I'm testing this (only I see the new results because the new code is restricted to my userid) but I would like others to test before I cut over for everyone.

Please let me know if you want to be a part of the test.

Basically, it seems to work very well (my testing) and the scrollbars work excellently in all code tags widths.

OK. You are all setup RudiC, Thanks!

It has taken a long time and countless hours of work to get to this point.

The posts are the heart of the site, and getting them converted to divs from tables was no trivial matter.

Count me in too. I'll report anything strange (as I usually do).

OK.. you guys are "in" (hicksd8 and RavinderSingh13 ).

I need to fix a bug in "multiquote"... that's the first bug I found, just now.

I just checked a few posts where the formatting was previously shocking and it now looks good. Brilliant.

For example this one:
How to boot partition from Grub Minimal_BASH?

The text overflowed to the right but the scroll bar was below the image so could not scroll easily at all. Now the text is formatted nicely so scrolling not necessary. However, should we be able to see the full image posted??
