The one thing I do notice, or at least I think I do, is that the print appears to be a little smaller than it was before. It could be just these old weldor eyes.

Can it be made a little larger for the sake of all of us older folks?  :-D :-D :-D

Pete, on my Apple (all of 'em, for that matter) you can change the magnification of the screen to your preference by:

Press command plus the + button to step larger, and Command plus the - button to shrink.  Mine's set to 120% for these cataract surgery-limited close focus eyes.

I assume Wintel machines have a similar ability.

Trying to "Quote" a post now goes to "Quick Reply", which is not what I want. Could this be restored to prior operation?

In 'Build Diaries', "Belly Tank Build" thread, the photo links in Replies 399 & 400 give me a "not found" message. :?

My avatar now works- hurrah!

Looks like all attached photos from posts after the 17th or 18th are gone!
One example: http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php?topic=17014.msg323719#msg323719
Or is it just me?

I shuffled some files around, that fixed the ones in the above topic.  Are there others?  This WAS a one-time thing, they got mixed up in the crossover.

I see what you mean about quoting.  I'll add it to the list.

Ok, "Quick Reply" is turned off.  We need them smileys!    :dhorse:

I can make overall font larger, or just posts/pms.  I don't see the forum like most people, use a 23" display, at reduced resolution (makes everything larger), in IE with larger text.


Made everything larger, how's that?

Ok, I've installed Responsive Curve (with some modifications and cleanup).  Everything should look the same on desktop/laptop, but forum should be easier to view/use on tablets/phones.  I don't use a phone, I'm viewing it in Firefox responsive emulations, but looks like it should to me.  Still needs a few more tweaks.

Looked on my phone, pretty nice.  Had a bit of trouble navigating, but I think a lot of that is fat fingers, plus I seldom use my phone for the web so I'm learnin'.

Ok, needing feedback for t-shooting.  At the very bottom of the pages, on most pages there's a Kudos Laser Engraving ad.  Does anybody besides me see it?  Does anybody get a grey box with a red circle, where it's failed?  Some pages have neither, like this write-a-reply page, that's probably a setting.

Thanks,
