Rotating the phone simply causes the single column to expand to fill the screen, but no additional content becomes visible.

I just downloaded/installed chrome and the behavior is the same.

In both browsers the number of topics is visible, but it's now the last bit of info in each subforum cell, under "Moderator".

Ugh, I feel your pain and hope I didn't add to it :)
Okay, I'll check on the phpBB tech support forum and see if they've noticed this issue before.

Might see some oddities this weekend. The web developer and I will be working on trying to fix some of the last few glitches we have on the forum.

I was wondering if there is a way to increase the font size? It seems everything on the new skin is smaller than it was previously and I cannot find any settings for changing it.

JeffSod,

You can adjust your browser settings to increase the magnification (zoom) for the tab/session which is connected to the forum. As long as you keep that session/tab on this forum, your settings will hold. I'm running mine at 125%, which has solved the issue for me.


Best,

Randall

Randall thanks! I was trying to avoid adjusting the browser setting since this is the only place I am having the issue with the small font but do appreciate your input.

I get it, and I had the same concern. The browser settings only impact the one tab open, not the others.

I'll see if our web developer can increase the font size.

I am wondering if there is a way for the forum font to be increased without having to change browser settings? I am surprised that more haven't asked about this as the new skin seems quite small.

Thanks guys. There's still a few bugs that are stymying me but I haven't yet given up on. Trying to get the fly icons on the main page that signify new posts to be the same size as the ones inside the sub-forums, getting Greg's Orvis database listed on the bottom of the main page, and getting a moderator tool that remains hidden for some reason.

We're almost back to the way things were, but not quite.

Thanks for persevering, Mark! We appreciate your hard work, especially those of us who are technologically-challenged.
