Thanks Ray - I've tried that with no result.

Hallmark - what is Reader View? Is that a Facebook, Rootschat or Windows option?   I'm using Windows 8 if that helps.

Thanks both of you for your help.

I posted an Image of how to check if you were in Reader View or not!

Yes, got that thanks. Your screen looked totally different from mine though, so I couldn't work it out from that. However, for whatever reason, opening Firefox sorted the problem, and even when I go back to IE, everything works as normal now. Thanks again for your help - much appreciated.

Ray.

I was viewing in Internet Explorer. Switching to Firefox sorted it out straight away.

Many thanks

Mike

And I now see that it's not just Facebook - this Rootschat page is also truncated.

For some reason, the middle column on my Facebook page no longer displays messages in full, and does not wrap the text. It looks as though the two outer columns have moved inwards, taking up the space that the middle column used to use.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance

I'm thinking that this isn't the real Santa.

Other than digging and digging to find some connection, I don't think there is a way. It depends on whether you're happy with the balance of probabilities.  I take it you've tried tracing the second man backwards, and the first man forwards to see if there are any alternative candidates.

I've got similar scenarios, and my own approach is that if I can't find a definitive link, they stay out.

What would be a definitive link? I guess we can hardly ever be 100% sure

Agreed - I realised that after I posted. However, I would need more than the same name and age, before joining two people as one - perhaps finding connections via siblings, witnesses, employer etc.

How to Use RootsChat (Please don't post requests here) / Re: My Posts

Strangely enough, before I made my previous reply, I looked at several at random. ???

And once you've looked at them, they are no longer "new".

If anyone else was to look at the list, your posts would show up as new on our screens - just not on yours.
