    Would it be pleasant to have the forum displayed dependent on the actual screenwidth?
    I think there will be both mobile and fixed users with very different screenwitdth.
    I have read in the vBulletin manual that it is possible
    (for the forum administrator) to set a fixed width (in pixels),
    but also can use a percentage of the actual screenwidth.

    I would like to know what the screen width from some users is.
    Mine is 1280, as it is an 19" monitor.

    I hope Dave and jrap can do something with the provided information.

    Yeah Most definitely.

    Several Vbulletin forums I see have suddenly changed resolution so I can't now see them properly.
    The vertical resolution has also got worse.

    I use the standard office resolution 1024 x 768 on my web pc.

    Its not that easy. A big part of web design is having cross platform usage with no errors. When you tell the site to go dynamic and size itself accordingly you can open up your site to many many more errors, and problems. Some browsers will automatically open it up as 1280 width on a 1074 monitor and vice versa. While it can be done it's usually not as simple as setting a check box and will usually require a fair ammount of debugging.

    Found it

    Use the zoom button in the bottom right hand corner for IE.
