Hi there,

I am in the process of upgrading the server software including a brand new look & feel. There was an attempt made about 10 minutes ago, but there were some bugs, so we reverted back to the existing script. Your patience is appreciate while this is being done.

I noticed this ...
Using IE 7, and a 1920x1200 display, your site now comes up short. I can zoom in but would like site to resize based on res user is running.

That way everyone can get teh best, I hope anyway...
Rich


besides, why need for this new look?

Thanks for reporting the php error, mpilchfamily. Now fixed.

RichPLS, the width was set up this way. I will have a chat with forum admin to see if it will expand or not.

The postings are narrower for me too... and I'm using a 19" display at 1280x1024... browser is Opera 9, but I doubt that's the problem.

Me too. It's so small now that it hurts my eyes. I would be glad if this is corrected.

Edit: Misspelling.

Can only agree - even at 16 x 12, a quarter of the screen is unused each side.

Same issue here. Explorer 7 and widescreen with half of my screen left empty. A lot more scrolling; my mouse wheel needs active cooling now.

This happened to me at work (where I use both 1920x1440 and 1920x1200) it's like readng a newspaper column in a broadsheet paper. Not great for forums, I see less text per page.

On my PSP when I woke up and check PMs no problem, but the screen is 400x200. :wink:

I agree, the cosmetic changes, fine, the layout changes.... why bother?

If tweaking stuff I'd rather a button that takes me directly to the 1 unread PM that I can't find in my e-mail history.

What is the "word" regarding the above referenced width issue? I am having the same poor utilization of my screen.

I think this is the new Forumz Mobile Edition. It looks great on my Treo also. Now if only it didn't take 2 min to load every page with my phone.

Who's Kanoa? I think he did it. :p 

[code:1:5aaf749504]#fwrap #out { ... width: 980px ... }[/code:1:5aaf749504]
Actually, I had an old copy of style.css in my cache. I guess that whole section, of over 40 lines, is new to this role-out.

Good luck fixin' it. :wink:
