Discussion in 'Welcome To Websleuths' started by Tricia, May 23, 2018.
Another difference - my history shows my last 50 threads.
Is anyone else finding it confusing seeing the profile picture of the member who started the thread, rather than the subject of the thread, like I used to see? At the moment every list looks like a list of missing pets to me!
I believe you have to post FIRST, and then the Alerts pop up. At least that's what happens to me this morning. I come in here, and there are no Alerts, but then after I posted, the Alerts pop up.
Yes, but then you have to click on everybody's name that has posted on that thread. Kind of cumbersome.... I liked when you could just "see" the names on the bottom of the thread!
I have my settings adjusted so I do not see signatures.
I cannot figure out how to get to "settings"!
At the top of the page - right side it will have your user name "dixiegirl1035" then "inbox" and your "Alerts". Hover over your "name" and you will see stuff you can go to in your personal settings. At least that's how I found it.
If I can figure out how to do it
Control + print screen
What it amounts to is that font size everywhere has been reduced - Websleuths looks better, but many other sites I frequent are a little too compact. I already have size set at 125%, but adjusting to 150% was ridiculous - everything looked like a second grade textbook. I'll get used to it, I'm sure.
While you hold down the control button, scroll with the center part of your mouse and you should be able to zoom in/out in other increments. If you are on a laptop and don't have a mouse, hold down control and use two fingers to "pinch" or "spread" the part of your laptop that you use to scroll. hth
I have a desktop with 21" monitor. Difficult for me to use DH's laptop (13") and next to impossible on phone.
I hear ya. I love my phone, loathe tablets, and am not crazy about laptops either. Unfortunately I work on a laptop all day lol.
Try scrolling with your mouse while holding "control" and that should help you with zooming.
This depends on the device.
Mine is set to 175% and I love it. First it pushes the side bar down to the bottom, so I don't have to see that, while I'm reading the threads. The text does get a bit big and it fills my entire laptop screen. But that is OK. It's easy to read and even the hard to read small orange on orange text becomes readable.
Since there are only 20 posts per page, it doesn't take much scrolling to get to the bottom, even with extremely large font size.
Oh, oops! Mine does show the last 50. My bad.
At 150%, my font seems HUGE I can't imagine having it set at 175% I guess we do what we gotta do. I actually like the smaller font here, but it might be a problem on other sites I frequent (mostly news).
On the positive side, the recent Microsoft updates included a photo slideshow that changes every 24-36 hours. Of course, users can add their own photos, but I actually like the changing scenery - it's like a travel-log that takes me to awesome places
Is it just me or are there more/larger ads today?
is anyone else having connection problems right now? for about the past hour, not being able to go to next page of threads or add likes etc. without being timed out.
I had a problem just now with not being able to quote a post. I am also having a few site errors...it says something about either maintenance or high load on the server. It's making me fear there might be a dDos attack going on?
I'm also really intrigued by all this chat about the smileys, and I'm feeling very old... I can't stand webpages that look like 12 yr-olds have been playing... my brain can't cope with all the jerky motions all over the place. But I'm very curious as to Bears10's comments and what would be a reasonable compromise to make things have a more modern feel without alienating anyone over 40.
