    Forum Display Suddenly Different


    A few weeks ago I noticed that the forums were displaying differently. What I mean is the fonts were suddenly larger, and I can no longer see the list of operating systems in a posters side panel. There may be more, I just haven't noticed them.

    At first I attributed this to the fact that you may be working out the bugs after the forum update. But this has persisted, and nothing that I do seems to bring it back to "normal".

    Other forums that I contribute to don't have a similar problem. I use Firefox, and I can change the default font size, but I still don't see the OS's. I also tried Konquerer, and it has the same problem.

    It's difficult to help someone when I don't know which distro they use. Especially if they went through the trouble to add it to the sidebar.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I included a screenshot, but I'm not sure if it really shows what I'm referring to.

    I also checked using a Windows box with Firefox, same thing. I have enabled everything in the user CP. If I make the fonts smaller through Firefox, then every other site has teeny tiny fonts.

    I think that maybe this site has a large font as it's default font, I don't know why that would cause the user OS's to disappear.

    Edit: screenshot removed, needed the space.

    Thanks for the feedback, waterhead.

    Core Wizard is aware of these issues and is reportedly working to get them fixed.

    The fonts have already been reduced some, but still seem bigger than they were with the old forum format. The missing distro used information is bothersome to me too, but this was reported in the moderator's forum a week or so back. Hopefully, all the bugs in the new setup will be fixed soon.

    Thanks again for the feedback.

    No. Core Wizard's a real user. He posts in this section of the forum from time to time.
