Problem with Page's Layout.

I use Opera 6.x and sometimes I notice a strange problem on some pages here.
This morning it was happening again.
My resolution is 800x600.
Its like the text is not using a "word wrap" feature on the notepad and it goes all the way to the right.
Sometimes its not possible to scroll and the text remains broken.
Bellow two screen captures, just to give an idea how it looks like.
Sorry if they are too small. I was aware of posting them in full size.

The top image you have I've never encountered on HA but I have seen it happen on many other sites, especially using Opera 6.05. Sometimes in Opera 6.05 if you switch to full screen you "may" be able to see the run-off text that can't be scrolled.

The bottom image I see all the time here on HA when someone uses Code to post some info. What's interesting is when someone posts Code it makes all longer posts within a thread not wrap, sort of an eye sore and a bit annoying.

I went looking for some posts with Code in them and found something interesting in that if images are temporarly turned off in Opera it will sometimes wrap the text.

I noticed similar problems with Opera 6.05 and Webwasher (automatic configuration) when using Invision Board or phpBB.
Are you running Webwasher?

I think the problem with the top image is because of spoon's news post.  He us using =============  to divide the text, and since this considered as a single word probably, it will not wrap to a new line.  This causes all other text to continue to at least the same length before wrapping.  This happens in Mozilla too if the window is small enough.  In IE, the effect is similar except that instead of overflowing the text out of the box, it simply cuts off the rest of the line until it finally wraps.

I edited his post and removed the ===== stuff, but it still has problems wrapping because of the long URL's I think.

Edit:  Shortening the URL's seems to have fixed the problem in Mozilla.  I'd like to know if it fixed the problem in Opera as well.

I don't know if you're referring to a single specific post or multiple posts, however I did find one by him in the Off-Topic section (now closed) and the part with code in it is still a mile wide.

I guess it's something we have to smile wide and live with.

I'm talking about the news post that was shown in the first picture posted.

The bit with the code not wrapping is by design.  The CSS used for rendering stuff between [code] tags is setup to preserve whitespaces and not wrap.

After Dibrom's edit, the portal looks ok(first picture). Tnx.

The second screen capture is about this thread:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....f=16&t=9234&hl=
and it its still erratic.
The problem begins at the first topic(by marteataca), when he pasted the lame's screen.
And all quotes showing "lame" are bad wrapped also.

About the webwasher: I dont use it.
BTW: I've upgraded to the latest Opera(7.1).

I already explained that the situation in the second picture is not a "problem" or a bug.  It's that way by design, however annoying some may find it.

I honestly don't quite see what good that does. If the browser wrapped the [CODE ]...[/CODE ] text, whitespaces would be preserved just as well - and to view the code without word-wrapping, one can just copy and paste it into a text editor. As far as I'm concerned, that's a lot more pleasant than not being able to read through some threads comfortably at all.

Good choice! 
I've been using Opera 7.10 for a while, and I would recommend those who are still using 6.05 to upgrade. I used 6.05 for a long time, but back then I had to use IE for some sites because of corrupted layout with Opera. With 7.10 this happens rarely (about every time I visit Logitech).

The only thing I really miss is the ability to export bookmarks to a format that IE understands.
