Dreadful format change on these forum pages

   Someone seems to have done some serious damage to the page formats
here.  On my Mac (10.11.5) using Firefox 46.0.1 or Safari 9.1.1
(11601.6.17), column widths seem to have shrunk absurdly.  Same for
       http://community.hpe.com/t5/Alpha-Servers/bd-p/bsc-435

Normal all-topic boards, such as:

      http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-117/post-type/thread
      http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-288/post-type/thread

also changed, but with less disasterous results.

   No better on Windows 10 with Firefox 45.0.2 or 46.0.1.  Might be a
tiny bit better with Edge 25.10586.0.0 (EdgeHTML 13.10586), but not
significantly.

The "Log In" page is similarly hosed.  The "New Post" page, too.

Re: Dreadful format change on these forum pages

Hi Steven,

Yes...i noticed that too in firefox (Win 10) today. The login page was shrunk.

But decreasing the font size by pressing Ctrl - (minus/dash)  two or three times fixed the issue for me.

   Did you look at these?:

   I'm guessing that a column heading like:

      SU
      BJ
      EC
       T

will need more than a minor font-size adjustment.  (And the
1-to-2-character-wide subject text under it, too.)  The log-in page is
the least of the problems.

Re: Dreadful format change on these forum pages

Yes..its little strange..i tried it in firefox, chrome, ie, edge...it worked fine...but happened in Maxthon browser exactly as you mentioned. Due to some odd reason it gets fixed for me when i reduced the zoom again. But yes there is definately something causing the problem..could be script related or adblock also because it had adblocker enabled. Will try changing some settings to duplicate it again.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I was previously unaware. We are investigating.

> Thank you for bringing this to my attention. [...]

   Always glad to complain.  Note that the top banner (with the
"Solutions", "Services", "Products", "About Us", and "Support"
menus/links) is still full width, but everything below that is narrowed,
with wide, spece-wasting margins.  It's nice (for a change) to see "LOG
IN" without needing to scroll right, but the price is too high.

   Also, if the browser window is narrowed enough to shrink the margins
a litle, those menus/links in the top banner disappear well before
there's too little space for them.

   While you're at it, I'm still dumbfounded that all the all-posts and
all-topics pages are headed "Servers and Operating Systems", and titled
"All Posts/Topics - Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community", thus
providing no useful info in the browser tab or top-of-page.  For
example:
