It's Too Small!

Postby onlinegenie » Thu Oct 15, 2015 3:16 pm

When I load the forum it shows up in the middle of my screen and I have to adjust the size to make the text readable (27" iMac). Then, when I click on a link, it's squashed up in the middle of the screen again.

I could probably live with having to adjust it when I load the site, but it's a bit of a pain having to adjust it every time I click on a link.

could you post a screenshot - should be fine...
which browser?
could be the forum, but could be your settings on your browser...

File too large. I'll play about with it tomorrow and see if I can upload it.

I'm using Google Chrome. Other forums (e.g. ADUK) show up at a reasonable size.

This is a newer version of PHPBB - version 3.1 which is now responsive, so might be handled differently...
not made any changes that would affect that, so should be as standard...

Interestingly enough, I recently joined another newly-opened forum (not driving related) which is also too small - must be the new version of PHPBB.

I'll try it on Firefox.

That's better - still too small when I log on, but at least on Firefox I only need to increase the size once.

I'll try to make my next post about driving :).

thank you :) interesting to note - I suspect it could be something to do with the responsive nature and the changes that brought - will have a look into it anyway...

It works properly on Chrome on my MacBook - no need for even one adjustment! I have my answer - always use the MacBook when visiting Advanced Driving Hub :).

That's strange. I run both an iMac and Macbook Air and do not have this problem when using Safari on El Capitan nor the previous operating system. Do you still get the problem when Safari is in full screen i.e. after clicking on the green button top left of window?

I always wondered if those traffic lights actually did anything! :)
