There seems to be an issue with the forum layout in Chrome, here's an example from the Instruments forum:

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me? I also checked using Edge and it does not have this problem. I'm using Chrome 89.0.4389.72.
It's not some Chrome extension causing this, because it also happens in Chrome's guest account which does not have any extensions.

No issues here...
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

No problems on any of my Chrome-browsered devices.

That's pretty strange, but if it's not correcting after a refresh, I'm thinking there's a graphics driver issue.

This is very strange, because it started only 2 days ago. Before that I never had this.

It's only a few threads that have this issue:

Looks like topics with a long “About:” list that doesn't fit inside the table cell.

[edit]
Just checked: no problems in Vivaldi, but Chromium does indeed screw up.
fwiw: Chromium is version 89, Vivaldi based on 88.

[edit]
Just checked Edge (based on 88): no problem. After updating to 89: messed up.

So, definitely a rendering bug in chromium 89.

I don't know if it's a problem on my end or anyone else's end, but I just checked by going to one of the areas to the forum, and it still looks weird.

It'll look weird until Google fixes their browser.

Meanwhile, under “Customize KVR” you can tag “Don't show Products Related To Topic” which makes the “About:” line go away.

This is happening on another phpBB based forum that I use, but it's more common here. Removing the "float: left" (or changing it to "none" in the "left-box" class in the stylesheet fixes it.

If you install the Stylish extension for Chrome and add this, it will fix it:

Code: Select all

.left-box {
    float:none;
    width: auto;
    text-align: left;
    max-width: 100%;
}
[code]

I saw this issue raised in another thread, but seems to me like it's now fixed at least I haven't seen a screwed up title in Chrome the last couple of days.
