What's up with that Glock banner that blocks the forums bar?

    No, I'm using a netbook. The problem is once I get to the site, I can't get to the "FORUM" button and have to open whatever thread and TRY to click the "forum" button before the Glock banner pops up. Normally they have a "close" button or an "X" in a circle, but I'm not seeing that here.

    You have some screen setting too large.I've done this before.You have some setting set too big and everything overlaps. Very annoying.
    Start playing with the 'options' and the fonts sizes.Eventually you will get a balance and be able to see everything with rose colored glasses.
    Some pages show different than others too_One page is perfect and the next is all misconstrued

    I usually just start changing thing and stop when the desired results appear.Then I have no idea how I did it.

    Hey...good luck!

    I don't see one either in fact I don't think I've every seen it. Click on the banner and find the root website, if it's not NWFA just block the website and you'll never see it again.

    That's close to what I am seeing except it covers ALL the buttons on the bar where "forum" is.





    So I hit "CTRL" and "-" and the banner moved up, I guess I was zoomed in to much, I suppose that's the problem with a 9" screen.:laugh:
