The computer I was looking at the site on (in IE) is at 800x600 resolution. I understand why the text might be impossibly small on monitors with 1280x1024 resolution or something.

So, I'm going to buy a book on CSS today and figure it out and set everything a-right for you guys. That's why I did this over a weekend.

I'm at home looking at this on IE & the font size is fine. Granted, this is with my glasses on, but I have no problem at all with this. In fact, I think this whole forum looks brilliant. I love it.

The only thing that's kind of weird is that they switched forum set-ups over on RPGnet at exactly the same time & both fora now look exactly the same (or pretty damn similar, anyway).

I haven't experienced any real problems with font size, and I use 1600x1200 resolution on a 19" monitor. I thought the old version of the forum was fine, though I guess the new version will be great once it's all dialed in. It does have a lot of whizzie new features. This must be quite a hobby for you, Clinton.

I have nothing espescially brillant to say except that the new look is great.  I like the fonts, and I'm looking forward to playing with all the pretty options.

Ick...they have little pictures. Let's not get that feature. Nothing personal, but I'm not sure I want a visual representation of how lacking in taste you all are. It looks like a food fight.

First things I turned off were the little pictures, the smilies, and the ranking system. There's no need for all that madness.

Hey Clinton,

Despite that I have HTML turned on, some simple HTML seems to be failing out.

No <EM>emphasis</EM>.

No <FONT COLOR="RED">colored text</FONT>

You did fix the thing where single quotes were being appended with slashes. Is this related to that fix?

Thanks,

Paul

The reason some HTML isn't showing up is because I can now set what HTML is allowed and what isn't. I'll add FONT and EM.

Clinton I am sorry about the percieved tone of my post. Honestly it was not my intention to come of as anything but helpful. Sorry.

I thought that you were using CSS because I have seen it misused in setting the fonts too many times, and I haven’t even bothered to check if that was the fact with Forge forums. Mea culpa.

I use IE 5.5 and am unable to resize text size using the View > Text Size > size I want option. And I am complaining about it because I am not only using a small, old and not too good monitor, but also because I am one of the ‘blind’ people (-6,75 both eyes). So if you can help me that would be great.

On a side note do you expect to add the colour options back? I was rather fond of the blue/gray one.

Thanks, and sorry, again.

Note: Everyone who thinks they offended me - you didn't. It was taken care of with one other person and I.

And if you liked the blue/grey option, you can select it in your profile. The theme is called 'subSilver'.

Love the subZero, but I didn't notice it a few days ago.
 Thanks.

Any help / advice you can give me regarding my font size problem?

Absolutely beautiful, is all I can say. And the "New Posts Since Your Last Visit" option is working now (for some odd reason, it was't for a long while with the previous version).

I love you, Spartacus.

All the font size problems should be fixed. If you still have a problem, flush your cache, and re-load the page.

It was, err... pretty cool, but it got all, well, big!

Sorry man... Is there a new setting in the userprof that I can change?

I love the new look.  SubSilver rules!  I just wish the Forge logo was in the upper-left again.

Who knows, one of these days I might have something relevant to post.

Later,
Chris
