Hi everyone,

Is anyone having problems with the display of Matlab Central website? (Ratings section on frontpage repeats the same rating, comments on submitted files don't seem to word wrap and go off the page).

I've got these issues on different computers and on both Firefox 3.5 and IE 8. Is it just me?

Nope, not just you. Also some of the blogs seem affected.

So, that's two.

Are there any Matlab Central admin people around to clarify?

I have the same issues. I sent an e-mail to the FEX about this problem several days ago but have not gotten a reply.

The word-wrap issue is a specific problem in the CSS file (uses "500px" instead of "100%") that I have already reported to the support team. They're on it...

The issue has today been resolved, as I mentioned above.
Kudos to the MathWorks technical support team for a quick turnaround!

The comments in the FEX are still not entirely visible.
The rating system (Stars and whatnot) is covering the rest of the
comments making it hard to read.
One of the same problems that I believe the OP was talking about.

I noticed that, too, but when I reloaded the page it was fine. Must be
a cache issue.

I found out that if there are some characters that couldn't be displayed it wouldn't display them or any part of the file afterword. This is a math oriented program and I thought they would be better about displaying obscure characters. This is a problem because I can't post all of my code or the file others need to see in order to respond.

If you're still seeing that behavior after refreshing the page (to clear up
any cache issues, as Doug suggested) then you should email the
administrators (files@mathworks.com) and indicate which submission is (or
submissions are) still displaying incorrectly.
