Looks like any long string of text causes this.

It's been mentioned a few times over the last 3 years.

Here's one.

Here's two.

In the second thread Neil says. "We've determined there's no easy way to fix this. It has to do with the text just being too wide in the post area."

I posted about it here at the UBB forums. I know enough about what the developer posted to understand the words smirk and the explanation. It doesn't seem too complicated but I don't know if it would conflict with anything in your layout or css.

HTH

yup, that is an issue with how the floated divs and tables ( ubbthreads ) don't always play well together

he is trying to wrap his ubbthreads ( table ) stuff in a left floated div (750px), then have another floated div ( 250px ) for some ads on the right. ( why not just have a ubbthreads side column with an ad there? )

threads isn't contrained to it's 750px width properly and you will get these collisions.

you could do 1 quick thing : edit the style and add a css class to the body_col property..

width:750px; ( fixes 2nd problem )
word-wrap:break-word; ( fixes 1st problem )

Very interesting. Not sure that will work ... but I will get a look at it and experiment.
