Switched to the dark mode, seems easier to read.
I am using Google Chrome with Adblocker plus and I do not get any ads on any sides of the screen. I use the dark format and it does not bother my eyes at all. I am still using Windows 7 and I am older than 65 and have had cataractI hate to say it but I have a mixed opinion on this new format. On my PC I do not like all of the extra ads and the white space etc. I do understand that I am not paying for the site so I should not complain about the ads. On the other hand these ads are all on one side of the screen so I am not forced to stare at them all the time.
Now the good part that I like about this new set up is how it performs on my tablet. The old site did not display well on the tablet this does. It seems to automatically format the the screen.
Knowing that this is a free site if it is functional I will use it. The content is why I am here, that part has not changed, only change is the presentation.
I don't know about the board software, but windows 10 has this built in .. hold the CTRL key down, and tap the + key, that will make the font larger, the - key will make it smaller fontJohn,
Is there, or could there be, an option to view all threads in a larger font? I looked but didn't find an option.
Good point. It may help many here. I use it all the time with various app.'s, especially viewing pic.'s when I want to zero in on a specific detail.I don't know about the board software, but windows 10 has this built in .. hold the CTRL key down, and tap the + key, that will make the font larger, the - key will make it smaller font
Not just Windows 10.I don't know about the board software, but windows 10 has this built in .. hold the CTRL key down, and tap the + key, that will make the font larger, the - key will make it smaller font
Ed, it's not just a matter of a new banner and other things, it's a completely new software package. The old forum used vBulletin, this new forum uses XenForo. vBulletin called them threads and PMs. XenForo calls them discussions and conversations. I appreciate that you are trying to help others, I am also when I see something I can explain.I thought I posted this hours ago but here it is sitting waiting for me?
A snowblower site I am on they are changing too, same hosts.
I don't see why they could not have called discussions threads like they used to be?
PM's are now conversations, would have been nice just to stick with PM's?
I think that the bunch of word changes have confused some too, now they will have to learn new terms.
It would have been a little easier if they had just stuck with the old terminology?
I am learning OK, but I see others are having a hard time, I do try to help, if you know where to look a lot of things are easier.
As mentioned the picture process is easier now, I have not tried to post a video yet.
And I still see a dramatic drop in online members.
But that only allows posters to emphasize items different fonts/colors. A member with problems viewing posts i doesn't have this option to enlarge or change fonts while viewing.The problem with changing the fonts in your browser is you then have to adjust them again when you go to another site.
The fact that you don't have font size options or color options with a "modern" forum package is unimpressive to me.
I still want the ability change the fonts to something about this size! I also want the ability to change the colors!
As you can see above, it's clearly within the ability of the board software to do these things, it's a matter of adding the controls to the editor.
