Advertisements now bigger than content on front page

I read ENworld on a portrait-oriented monitor instead of the common landscape-orientation. Looking at the front page, the news articles are narrow columns, getting 4-5 words per line - narrower then they were. Instead the left side and right side columns, mostly advertisements are both bigger than a column of news - the two of them significantly bigger than the two news column when taken together.

Is there any way to get advertisements all in the right hand column so it doesn't actually crowd out the "Tabletop RPG News"? I'm not asking for a reduction in number of advertisements, just rearranging them so that not more than half the screen is lost to side bars.

A portrait oriented monitor? Yikes. That isn't a configuration that has ever occurred to me.

The software but detects mobile devices and drops columns accordingly (on a phone, it's just one column), but I don't think it's capable of detect a portrait oriented monitor.

I'll ask the developer if there's anything I'm missing.

If I'm too far in the minority don't worry. But I have one landscape and one portrait. Portrait works a lot better for code and other things like that. The landscape one is usually dominated by software because is rather unconfigurable and they go with the more common orientation.

Thanks for looking, regardless.

Reading on my phone, the worst part of the ads are when they refresh and change what I was reading or typing. I should probably just get a Community Sponsorship. Haha

You shouldn’t see them on your phone. Unless your phone is like the size of a tablet or something. The mobile skin automatically drops the side columns when it detects a mobile.

Sorry, with seven monitors on my L-shaped desk, split across three systems, only one of them has enough space for three monitors.

Really what I'd want would be Portrait : big Landscape : Portrait. Alas, the fact that they do not give them away for free is my downfall. The fiends. swoon

Really though, if I have to actually turn my head to see, what's the point? (Disclosure: I wear glasses, so I don't count all they way out to the edge of my peripheral vision, just to the edge of my glasses.)

Though I have a friend who was like OCD-level bothered by the gap between monitors and ended up getting a good deal on a curved 55" 4K TV. Dot pitch was the same or better I think he said.

It's a Pixel XL so only slightly larger than a regular cellphone. The ads appear at the bottom, between the last post and whatever I'm writing. So when the ads update, I have to go back if I'm writing a post and re-center the page. Not a huge deal.

Yeah, happens to me too.

Ah, I thought we were talking about the front page!
