When I load articles section on phpfreaks.com browsers (Firefox and IE on Debian) render it so wide that it is almost 5 times the screen width. This cannot be intended behaviour and it looks so ugly that I seriously doubt I am the first one who noticed this? What is going on?

Posting in the incorrect forum won't get you the response you are looking for. Topic moved.

We really don't have much support for Debian linux right now.  None of the admins, as far as I know, has Debian computers to help out. I guess I could install Debian and try and fix it...or we can all just wait until Ober and I redo the entire site ;)

There are some faults on the main site, as Ron pointed out.  Hopefully most of that will be fixed soon.

I posted a question here about phpfreaks.com article section beeing rendered 5x the width of the screen on my Firefox and Linux IE with a SCREENSHOT link and my post gets deleted? Is this the way problems get solved arround here? Not to mention I didn't get a single response from anyone in charge. Guys this is not a mock. It is a serious issue. So if you guys intend to run this site as PHP itself deserves please don't put problems under the bed.

You need to rethink what your talking about, obviously you have no idea what you are talking about.  Who cares if there is a small design issue, you can never come on here demanding a response, it's not a service you pay money to. These admins, and users are people who come here on there spare time, and help people, and help run the site when they can.  It's not there responsibility to jump at every request, question, and aggravated complainer about the site, if you don't like it buzz off.
The site may have problems, but the person who created the site, he created about 8-10 sites, he doesn't have the time to jump to every problem every person want's to whine about, I have asked questions on here before that people didn't answer, sometimes they don't want to reply, but coming here acting like your expecting a paid service, when your not paying anything is a little vain.  If you were paying 20-30 bucks a month for this forum, and then I would understand expecting everything to go smoothly, and you to get responses, but you are here for free, with people working out of the kindness of there hearts to answer questions, and help people, and work on the forums/site, so get over it until they have time to fix it.

As i have stated above, we are currently working on the site. All request are being put on a todo list, and we have went from making a dent in that list to actually digging a hole in the list ;)  we are taking care of it.

I think its the page numbering on the bottom of the articles pages he's talking about.  They go on and on and on and on........

I'm getting the exact same problem on Windows and Firefox.  It's related to the page numbers.

yeah same prob for me. seems the code using non-break spaces (&nbsp) instead of normal ones for the page numbers
"you have to keep pissing in the wind to learn how to keep your shoes dry..."

I say old chap, that is rather amusing!

would it be too much trouble to simply replace the code that inserts the &nbsp with code that inserts regular spaces? the line would break itself up then onto a new line...

Umm why not look into createPost function and integrate those sections into SMF?  If you look at the Simple Machines Mod Site it uses SMF functions for the reviews and a few other things.  The pages are driven by constructPageIndex function on Subs.php.  If you need a hand with SMF stuff you can just hit me up.
