Forum News
We have an annoying glitch in the forum news. When you have two news items each with a different number of characters. the window will jump or appear to change size when the news messages switches from one to the other. This is not happening on all computers, only some of them have this issue. It has happened with IE, chrome and Firefox. We were using 2.4 and upgraded to 2.52 and both showed the same symptoms.

An advise or suggestions that I can try to fix this situation.
Thanks,
Tony

Re: Forum News
The problem has to do with Smilies needing more height than the text.

In all your Forum .css files find:
Code (CSS)Select All
#fscroller {
	line-height: 1.3;
}
 



replace with
Code (CSS)Select All
#fscroller {
	line-height: 1.3;
        min-height:20px;
}
 



The usual smilies are around 18px tall. If it still jumps, adjust the line-height and min-height upwards.

Both news items were text only, Smilies were not used.

One other note, this only happens when screen resolutions are 800 X 600

Re: Forum News
I'm betting that the lines on one or more of the news items are wrapping. Increase the min-height of the #newsfader to something like 30px to give it room to wrap even with smilies. You may even need to go up to 40px (Your font-size in that section should be 10px, but the text line will take up something like 14-16px and then you need spacing between the lines when it wraps.)
