Improvements needed

#1

Post by OldWood » 26 Dec 2010, 09:42

Good morning. I have been spending a little time here and really like it. First off having the bar at the top to navigate would be a lot easier than clicking back all the time. Also trying to read the articles my tired old eyes really strain, if the zoom worked it would be a big help. Please excuse the fact that I do not know any of the correct terminology.

Have You tried pressing the control (CTRL) button and hitting the + key to zoom in and the - key to zoom out?

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

OldWood, are you talking about the articles on the site, or about posts here on the forums? Can you give me some idea about the size of the screen you have, and whether you are running windows, or mac, and also what browser you have?

I just tested with my pc, and it does not work if the numlock button is not ON. more: the - and = buttons after the zero on top of your keyboard also will also do the trick while pressing ctrl.

OldWood you can change your post settings so you receive a notification when someone replies to your post. Go under "user control panel" and then "post settings" or something like that. I'm assuming that would send you an email.
