Forum update

Seems the forum had an update a few days ago. Took me a couple days to find the "new posts" link, but that's ok now. My issue is with the font. Anyone else find it too small? i.e not as defined as previous . . . . . . . . on the bright white background I'm finding it much harder to read. Any thing I can do? apart from better glasses  :005:

It would be nice to have a global "unread posts" link at the top right like we used to have, where the posts were presented in a nice list of the subject line only.

look in the little box top right with your avatar in it - you should see outbox-unread pm-UNREAD-replies

The UNREAD takes you to unread posts

(I am on the sister SingleR forum which was updated months ago, so got used to the changes)

Yup, found it after couple of visits. Just need to be able to read the fekin sh*t now. New font is awful. Too "thin" against the white background. Or is it just me?

Not an issue for me, but again maybe I am used to it already for the SingleR forum

I guess it’ll be a get-used-to-it thing, but I agree it’s harder to see. Looks less defined and more cluttered from my phone display.

Possible that some Accessibility settings on your device might improve font/contrast but it’ll likely be a global setting that messes up other things too.

You can also see "unread posts" by forum section   :002:

(Font is exactly the same as the old one btw. I'm wondering if it's appearing smaller on mobile :084: I'll need to check   :038: )

To me, the size of the font appears the same, but the letters appear thinner, (if that's even possible)!

Well you can sometimes get variants of the same font which will appear slightly different, but this one is identical. The colour of the font is the same as well.

I'm wondering if it's the background shade that's a bit different ? In the past if we've made it brighter to increase the contrast then people moan it's too bright! Can't win lol  :001:

Anyway you could try clearing your browser cache (not cookies) just in case you have some of the old stylesheets affecting it.
