Message reply format changed?

Postby tomw - December 4th, 2018, 9:40 am

I figure this spot is as good as any...

Previously, when I would respond to a post, the posts would display below the response text window. That no longer happens.
To refer to the content of a post when composing my response, I now have to open the post in another tab or window.
Question is, what did I do to my settings, or, did the system change? Actually, question is, can I make it do what it used to, and if so, how?

I am old, so have my screen set to larger text, and find the posting window too large side-to-side, actuall, the whole site is too wide, and wish it were more conforming so I don't have to scroll left-right to see postings or controls, also applying to the screens in general just as a generic whine. Anyone have any suggestions beyond new eyes?

I find that I now have to quote the post I want to refer to, then sometimes delete the quoted part, or leave it if there are multiple threads going in the same post thread. It has been that way for awhile, I am a member of many forums and just thought it might have always been this way, but I don't think it has.
