What has happened to this site????

Why are the posted pics so large? We cannot view them

Why does the menu on the right cover most of the post?

Can these issues be fixed?

    Also why does the pop up window come up every time I change posts?

    I notice if I post pics directly from my PC they are large and covered like you say. If I post them from a hosting site they are normal size and not covered. I get the pop up from home using IE and FF but not at work...

    I have two computers on my desk.  One microsoft based- does that.  Other is chrome based and doesn't do that.  Why? I don't have a clue.

    Y'all have seen all the spam on this site?

    admin fail, or just don't give a crap..
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Might want to check your setting and also install some sort of adblocker as I get none of what is being complained about. Site works good with unobtrusive adds and nothing autoplays.

    https://adblockplus.org/ works and it still lets basic adds through so the site still gets advertising dollars.....which it must have so we can continue to use it for FREE.............

    Your computer should have a setting that disables autoplay.

    I don't have any issues either.  I've got NoScript, uBlock and HTTPS everywhere installed as add ons to firefox.  All free.

    It's good to have these, not just to avoid the mentioned problems, but they protect your computer from security vulnerabilities.

    Be warned, some web sites will look vastly different than you are used to and some flat out won't work.  If I HAVE to go to one of these websites, I open chrome and then close it when I'm done.  Just know when you have to do that, there are known security vulnerabilities associated with the platforms those websites are using.

    And uh yeah, this forum is loaded with known security vulnerabilities.  The login isn't even secure.....
