    New forum size?

    Did something change with the layout of the forum?

    I open a thread in a new tab to read or respond, then close the tab when finished. I then refresh the original page to update threads I've viewed.

    I just happen to prefer doing this versus clicking the back button on my browser.

    However, at around midnight (GMT-6) today, once I went to refresh, everything was much larger. Thought I'd perhaps somehow accidentally zoomed my browser page, but when I tested that, the layout was still slightly different.

    Just curious if anybody else experienced this, if it's a forum change, or what.

    I will check, but the webmaster is making changes to make it more device friendly, so it could be that.

    It has been rolled back to the old-style fonts. The size increase was a side-effect of something Red5 was working on.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for letting us know. I was making some changes and these were unwanted side effects - sorry about that! I've reverted to the original again.

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: New forum size?

    It wasn't really a problem, just slightly confusing. Glad to hear it wasn't just me!

    For what it's worth, the layout is still slightly different. I suspect the page width was decreased to make it more device-friendly, as overall it's narrower, and still a bit larger.

    Again, not necessarily a bad thing or a complaint, just glad to know it really was something on the website end!

    Thanks for your work on improving the site.

    There is still extra white space below every forum title. That makes it more difficult to navigate the forum.

    Thanks, Red. I just checked and the extra white space is still there.

    It might have been fixed by now as I don't see it.
