So they did the changes to the main page this morning and now the "window" is extra wide... I have to scroll left to right to read a page/forum post.... this happening for anyone else?  How can I fix it, or does it have to do with something on their end?

TIA :)

I'm having the same problem.

I believe it is on their end.

what size monitors do you guys have?  what is the font size of everything?  It may not be on PBS end but on your own depending on your monitor settings.

ok that is weird...what just happened to my posts?!

I don't have any problems viewing the page.  It may be your monitor and its settings if you can't see everything without using the scroll bar

I am on a brand new macbook with a resolution higher than what the help doc specified. The problem for me is the fact that I am using a mac, not my screen size or my screen resolution. Mac windows do not open as large as windows windows and do not automatically go to full screen without dragging. I have to adjust my window size, which I do not have to do for any other site. I'll get used to it, I guess. No big deal. :)

Is there a way to change position of the boxes?  I like "My Favorite Genres" at the top as it is, but I don't care to see every book posted into the system since that is too broad of a category for me.  It's interesting, but it's  not relevant for me.

I have to scroll too, but it might be me as I hate a full screen so have mine made smaller. 

I think once I get used to the new 'stuff' I'm going to really like it.  It's the learning where everything has gone to that's difficult.  Pat
