Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

How are you seeing the "non-integer" values? When you print out the value, do you convert to coulombs? Do you convert to electron charges (divide by eplus)? You may also want to print out the particle name, which will tell you what the actual thing is.
