Hit F11.

I don't know why Possumblog has started doing this, but some of you might be experiencing a bug where you cannot get past a certain point on the page. There's stuff on there, but you can't scroll all the way down and read the whole entry.

Again, I don't know the deal (although I suppose I could figure it out if I wanted to) but a quick way around this is to press the F11 key twice. The first time reduces the menu bar at the top down to a little sliver and makes it to where you can scroll as far as you can. The second press returns the menu bar to its normal size.

Sorry for the bother.

Must be a windows thing.

It's been going on since the beginning - usually hitting "relad" or "refresh" will clear it. We don't want to miss any of the golden droplets of Possumy goodness!

I found going by the individual posts an effective solution.

It may be the version of Movabletype that you are using. It is pretty outdated. I think the current release is 3.16. I had a similar problem with my 2.x installation, but it went away with version 3.15.

Then again, I'm not all that bright so take what I say with a whole shaker of salt.

I wondered what the problem was, but I was blaming my computer. That fixed it!

Just shake the salt and not the computer. That will give you some real bad mojo.

I think I'll go post at my site now. I've been playing with the possums long enough.

You mean it's been doing this all along!? And no one told me!? I am so ashamed.

Doing a "Find" for something at the bottom of the page stops too - I had to hit F11 twice and then do "Find" again to get to it.
