    Default Really badly rendering ad

    I'm thinking this isn't intentional...

    I hope so anyway...cause ... wow...heck of a lot of scrolling to get to the actual search results...

    Yup me too.
    A lot of extra scrolling
    At first I thought the page was not loading correctly. And refreshed.
    A lot of white extra space.

    It is a nice looking ad though. Maybe the html is not right ?

    Let me know your browser and resolution you are viewing the website at. I will try to duplicate problem so I can fix it.
    Thanks for catching this.

    It is working perfectly now Gabe for me! It is now on the side where it is suppose to be and the forums are right there on the right. Great job in fixing it!

    Page is still stretched at the top by the Betty Crocker ad on the left.

    Mozilla Firefox 3.5.2. I don't know what resolution. If you tell me where to look, it will respond with the information.

    Right click on your desktop.
    Go into properties, then settings.
    It should say the resolution of your screen. (On a slider, you can ajust it higher)

    I want to know what resolution its at on your computer so I can set my computer with the same settings.

    I'm having the same problem, but the ad is on the left side of the screen. Still have to scroll down past it to get to the FV menu.

    I am IE6 with resolution of 1024 x 768.

    I think some of the ads were designed with some flaws. Going to share with General Mills. I appreciate everyone's feedback and patience!

    I moved it temporary to the right...see if this improves things

    I am just frugally using the version that works.

    Actually, right now, I'm on the company computer. We aren't allowed to upgrade. Supposed to be getting new computers this fall, though!

    Oh, and moving the ad to the right seems to have fixed the glitch for me.
