Eileen's Lounge Display Doesn't Fill my Screen

Post by BobH »

If this is in the wrong place, please move it to an appropriate forum. I placed it here because I'm having the problem only with Eileen's Lounge.

Since installing my large LED monitor on my laptop, every site I visit and page I display fills the entire screen except here. I couldn't find any settings in my preferences that might be causing this, but that might be an oversight on my part. Searching the web finds references to hardware specific problems that don't apply to me.

Why does this occur only on this web site? :cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:

It depends on the style (skin) you're using.
Most styles specify a maximum width of the contents, to prevent lines from becoming very long.
The Black style expands to fill the entire width of the window. I find that makes for uncomfortable reading.

I have a 27" monitor, so in reality the font is normal-sized.

Thanks, Hans! I figured it had something to do with The Lounge but didn't think about the skin. I'm using Latte Red and the display is centered using about 5/8ths of the monitor width. This is quite more than adequate given that I've been reading on an 11" laptop screen.

Thanks, again! :chocciebar:
