    New posts screen

    When I click on the "new posts" button and the screen appears I cannot read the title of the posts. I only see the very tops of the letters in the name of the posts.
    Thanx for your assistance in this matter.

    What browser are you using? I've had no problems with it running Firefox 3.6 on both Linux and Windows. Sounds like a browser rendering issue. I would maybe try clearing your browser cache and cookies and restarting the browser.

    I am also running Firefox 3.6 with Windows. All the other screens on the site are fine its just when I click "new posts". Browser cache and cookies deleted and restarted. Still have the problem.

    Go under the "View" menu and select "Zoom" then "Zoom Out".

    Happy to be of service, it gives me something to do while we wait for 30 threads per screen on the new threads search.

    I still do not understand why I have to keep zooming in and out when I go from one page to another page. If everything is set up in the same size type what caused this? It is the only site I have to do this on. Use the KISS in your reply cause I am not very computer savvy. KISS = Keep It Simple Stupid. Thanks

    You could always increase your screen resolution on your monitor. That should stop the having to change.

    I'm not sure about where this problem lies but I am pretty sure it is either in your monitor, or browser, settings. Either that or my settings are set so I do not experience the problem. When I open "new posts", I see everything very clearly, with no cut off letters. It very well could be, as NC Bullseye suggests, your monitor resolution, which will skew some fonts and graphics on some resolutions. I suggest that you experiment with some of the settings. I run my monitor at 1600x1024, but if you run at below 1280x1024, you are really not getting anywhere near the resolution that most monitors are capable of delivering. I would stay away from some of the "oddball" resolutions that show up in Windows.....

    Actually, I didn't do anything. Resolution is something you adjust on your monitor. Maybe someone has been playing a game on your PC that changed the resolution and they finally got around to changing back....
