I just added a post with a youtube vid in it and the text I added beneath the video (including my sig) is showing as outside my post window..see here. http://rugerforum.net/minefield/63951-romney-obama-lunch.html#post789652 I checked it with both style templates and they share the same issue. Do other folks see the same problem?

It's an odd aberration I've noticed before, probably a tag being added by the youtube post filter that is conflicting with the style sheets or something like that. Looks odd and might be worth investigating.

I've noticed the same thing for quite awhile. I've found if I wrap the url with CENTER tags, it seems to help, but not always.

I have seen this problem previously, although it hasn't happened to me.
It's not particularly common.

I just tried that on a new post and unfortunately didn't solve it. Admins need to look at their html/CSS files to figure this one out, pretty ugly and annoying.

EDIT: I figured out a fix perhaps, the youtube links force an https URL, I changed it to http and the odd formatting went away.

Bumping this in hopes it can get fixed someday (soon). Youtube vids that get posted where the URL includes the 's' in 'https' will hose the CSS for some reason and screw up the thread. I see it more and more, probably because folks are increasingly being redirected to the secure version of youtube via an auto log-in. Then they copy the url for sharing and it's with the https. Users can fix their own post by removing the 's' manually but most have no clue it's there and really shouldn't have to deal with it to begin with.
