    Default Something Weird with Forum CSS

    I've noticed this in a few threads. Thread " http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...-question.html" for example. Posts #1 and #6 seem to have some strange short line wrapping going on. If you check the source you'll notice that the posts in which the text is wrapped the div class following the post heading (H2) is "<div class="content has_ad">" while for the posts which appear normal (no short wrapping of lines) the div class is "<div class="content">"

    Any idea why this happens?

    Note it does not appear to be tied to the forum skin (I checked using both) and it does not appear to be limited to posts which have been edited.

    Are there supposed to be ads included in the display of the posts with the "has_ad" class? I disabled adblockplus and still didn't see anything.

    Note: I can't speak for everyone but if this is a sign that ads are in-bound I'd be disappointed

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    I think it
    is because
    I don't type very long lines,
    for the most
    part.
    It is actually a bad habit that I have, but it comes from having so many windows open and running them side by side.
    Also it looks to me like your post above has some short line wrapping on it as well.

    Indeed by post above also appears to be of class "content has_ad" for some reason instead of just "content".....

    I find it happens more on quoted posts than not (how intriguing).

    I'm wondering if the forum software is kicking in for the advertisement content that isn't being put there (well if it is I have adblock running). The name seems indicative of that sort of throwback.

    Also, it happens to me quite a bit despite my sometimes lengthy sentences and otherwise useless amounts of text
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    I just noticed this happens only in the first and last post of each page. At least for me. I tried opening various threads and all of them had the short line wrapping like this (first and last post of the page). Can someone verify this?

    Well if your post changes from its previous state:

    http://i431.photobucket.com/albums/q...k/Picture2.png

    To a full screen when I send this post through, I'd say you're on the money. Why is a completely different matter!

    Edit: Strange ( http://i431.photobucket.com/albums/q...k/Picture3.png This immediately after my reply-with-quote, but a refresh of the thread reports your summation. Hmm. AND THEN THIS EDIT FIXED IT. I'm going to refresh again and I bet it goes back to small. Hmmm )

    Hmmm I think you might be right about the first and last thing. I'll keep an eye on that.
