  • Suggested changes?

    Just list suggestions for changes here and will do my best.

    I have on the list increase photos per post. (raised to 10 from 5)

    What about the font? Had a suggestion it was too small? Thoughts?

    Signatures? Not sure if I miss them though, gets cluttered. Maybe a spot under your name with location/zone, that's nice to know.

      Its alittle small without my glasses. Dont l8ke to,ware them but its ok if you cant make them bigger. Love the ease of use. Took me a minite to learn that your message alert doesnt go away unless you delete them. That 5he only change i would suggest. After you open them the alert should disappear.

        Kelby,

        If you have a signature or not is up to you. Click on your own name (in blue), edit settings > account > scroll down to signature

            Yes, so far the only thing I would like to see changed is the font size. Even with reading glasses this is a bit too small, like it is Times New Roman 10 and I'd like it increased by 4 points.

            Oh, I guess one other thing, it seems a little odd (?) that we don't get taken right to the threads when clicking on Forum and need to go to Fig Home. That puzzled e for 5 seconds.

              Harvey I answered you 2 minutes before you asked How is that for service? Ok maybe it isn't fixed....working on it.

              The reason for the Fig Home is I may add a blueberry forum. If you want to go straight to figs (fig home) just save the shortcut to that board to your desktop and that is where you will land.

                Yes, I agree the print is a little too small.

                Re sig lines. I like them, but how about no images allowed? Sig line pics can really clutter up threads and make them more difficult to read. And limit their size to maybe 2-3 lines or so.

                Never allow an individual in the heat of the moment to delete entire threads that include anyone else's posts. That is just not fair.

                As you suggest, a very small number of rooms/fora are preferable. Too many and a board just gets confusing and/or redundant.

                                    Has anybody been able to successfully change the font size. I did as Wills suggested and saved it and when I returned it was still small. I've done it three times with the same results. It appears the forum default is xxsmall, the smallest font possible.

                                      A few thoughts:
                                      • I also vote for increasing the size increased and maybe change it to one that is less curvy and easier on my eyes (like < face="arial">Arial or < face="verdana">Calibri or < face="verdana">Verdana or < face="trebuchet ms">Trebuchet MS). I also think those s are larger. In general, press the CNTL and then the "+" keys will increase the screen size which indirectly increases the size.
                                      • I like the signatures, and
                                      • Yesssir, for the blueberry forum.
                                      More comments as I take a random walk through the forum. I will update this one post versus continuing to spam this thread when I find something worth sharing.
                                      1. There seems to bean issue with changing the face and color. I will continue to tinker with it and hopefully not find any more functional concerns.
                                      2. Some posts have a large amount of space between the end of the last sentence and the signature. Sometimes not. ???
                                      3. Is there a way to edit the title of a thread after the thread has been posted?
                                      Jimmie

                                        The way it is supposed to work is everyone can pick their own size and style of font . If you click on your name in blue under your avatar then themes you will see where under content you can make the changes. The problem is it does not seem to be working. I could not change it for myself or for anyone else. I have made it so the permissions are set to change it but still no.....think it is a bug and will ask them about it today, I have a list

                                      Thanks Wills.
                                      Yep. The font face and color within a post like changing these font face from black to red and from Times New Roman to Comic Sans also did not work in the Test post I made. I will post a video to test that functionality as well.

                                        Wills, I am losing it. I wanted to reply to a message in my inbox but I do not know how. It was not intuitive for me but that is not saying much. How do I reply to a PM? And is there a way to use the full editor in comments? I ask only because I wanted to include a screen capture. To do so, it would require adding another post to this thread versus just adding a comment. I think there is less spam this way.

                                      I finally found the 'text' size adjustment, but mine does not work either.

                                      There is a nice feature - on the main page that lists the threads, click on the blue thing with double downwards arrows to the immediate left of the thread title, and that will take you to the first new/unread post in that thread. No more hunting for where you left off.
