    can't login from main screen

    I can't enter my username on the main screen because the "Search" box crowds into the username box. (Once I go to other screens, like after clicking on a thread or after searching, then I can log in).

    Re: can't login from main screen

    When I tried that, my username/password were not accepted. Then I could find no way to exit from that screen, so I had to hit the power button on my computer and start up again.

    However, I'm trying a different workaround: clicking the box for "remember me" next to the login boxes.

    In any case, my main intent with this posting is just to point out a minor error in layout of the webpage. (I find the problem on both of my computers.)
