Easy fix just change the Forum.css (line 339) file to something with a smaller width such as:

div.posterContent {
margin-left:130px;
padding:10px 0;
width:428px;
}

Thank you Howard. I changed it to:

div.posterContent {
      margin-left: 150px;
      margin-right: 500px;
      padding: 18px 0 18px 18px;
      width: 450px;

But it still looks wierd.... the text is not fitting right and I don't know which bit of code does what ...also the LOGON text slid over to the left! if you can offer more advice i would be grateful .... of course I'll keep on trying but so far my fiddling has been meddling and not had a good result

Sorry Howard, just not getting it. I have tried changing the various parameters there and succeed in messing up the page further but not fixing it.
Please can you tell me which bit makes it wrap?
