larger layout screen please

Post  Jordankoal on Sat Mar 27, 2010 2:19 pm

Ok, I have a big monitor but when I'm on this site I only use like 1/3 of it... Let the whole screen be used for the forums. I feel like I am looking through an old TV set. It makes it very hard to read long posts and posts with multiple replies.

Have you read this thread yet?

You may be viewing the forums in the small frame instead of the larger size...

For me, even when I go to cryptozoic.finddiscussion.com, the areas the actual forum text takes up is no more than half my screen. Huge area of blank space to the right of the actual text. I know that the frame is resizing itself though, as the search button and text field in the upper right is all the way to the right, but the actual text windows, not so much.

Thats how the forums look. If its to small for you, you just have bad eyes. Go to View at the top of your browser, scroll to zoom, and hit 125% or 150%. This will remove a lot of the blank space and make it look bigger.

I've had the forum space go full screen for me once. For about 30 seconds and it was fantastic.

My screen size at work is 1680x1050 and it was awesome to have all of that filled up with actual forum 'stuff'...lol.

Sadly, once I hit refresh to check for new posts, it reverted back to the 1/3 size it normally is and has not returned since.... Crying or Very sad

I'm not too worried about it just yet. The admins are working to make these forums as user friendly as possible and I'm sure they will get to the size issue eventually.

seems like an okay place to post this - having an issue pulling up the forums on my iphone. there's no scroll bar so i can see a few topics but can't scroll down. anyone else having this problem or is it just my technical ineptitude?

ETA: oops. yeah. technical ineptitude.

if you use the http://cryptozoic.finddiscussion.com/ address you'll get a scroll bar, but not if you go to the forums by cryptozoic.com.
