    Could you put a maximum font size for forum posts?. Extra large font widens the page for everyone else and spoils many threads. At least for me. :Smile:

    I've never seen that but an oversized picture screws up the whole page.

    But some of us need the extra large font so we can see what we're writing, but I see your point. It can be particularly irritating when using a large font and you're writing a long thread, or indeed a long reply, which necessitates the reader to continually scroll up and down the screen when he (or she) would otherwise not had to have done so. But in fairness we should always consider those of us whose vision is perhaps not so good as it used to be, or is impaired........
    I’m sure most will agree.

    will almost definitely be solved in the new forum software:thumb:
    the latest versions can be tweaked to work well on small tablet screens

    Couldn't agree more, also some photos make it too big as well on ipad, it just goes that small you can't read the other posts:Doh:

    pictures in posts do it for me.

    Sometimes the accompanying text is so small it is practically invisible because the picture is far to large.

    Admittedly guilty myself from time to time if i cant resize a pic but i do try first.

    That large font does not affect the rendering whereas a too wide picture brings in scroll bars which is really annoying.

    BIG font.. isn't or shouldn't be a problem. The browser should adjust the line length to fit the width of the page.. but is it really necessary ?

    as mentioned.. it's HUGE images that screw up threads.. must be a real pain on a 10" tablet..

    Try voting UKIP .. Farage says he will fix everything :winky:
