Subject: Tech: Help I Can't get my old text back
From: dagenham doc

Without any help from me, my page layout for Mudcat has changed. The messages now seem to run down the centre of the page like a poem and the text is really small. I have tried changing the size of course but no good.Same thing applies if I go into "lyrics" the layout and text size has changed. My eyes are bad enough as it is .....!!!Pleeesse... any ideas.

That's a new one on me, Doc. Do other sites seem go work OK? Take a look at our Help forum (click) and let us know whether that looks normal to you.
I imagine the problem is a setting on your browser. Which browser do you use? Have you changed browsers recently?

I have a similar problem, having just upgraded to IE6.   Suddenly all the text is twice the size, not to mention all the old e-mails which lay in Outlook Express vanishing. I can live with it, though.

in ALL browsers there are setting for changing display properties, including text size....you need to go up top to the menus and find them.

Thanks for the suggestion Joe. When i look at the help page everything below the line that says Topic Name Messages Last Message is in the smallest text, yet all above is normal. No matter if i go up and change the text setting it makes no difference. In additiion as i write this out on my "reply to thread space" even this text has changed.The page layout as i mentioned, looks like a set of lyrics or a poem. i use I.E.and have never had any trouble before.As someone said ... i can live with it i suppose but i don't know if my eyes can.

i've just had a look at the preview and it comes up as normal, but when posted it's back to the small print and the strange page layout.

If you look at the Source Code the area between the HR's that make the lines before and after each message are each separate tables. The table is set to 100% so it should display just fine. Sounds like theres a problem with it the way your brower is reading the tables, but that's as far as I know anything.

What version of IE are you using? Have you allowed it to upgrade itself recently? (This can cause problems, as the software is so poorly thought-out). Mudcat uses relative, not absolute, font definitions; so as a rule any problems are likely to be at your end.

If in doubt, blame Microsoft; you will not be far wrong.

In 'most' browsers, it is possible to set font(text) size separately for headers, body..etc...IE doesn't seem to do this, but try under 'view'/'text size' and see if changing that setting to a larger size helps.

Have you tried the old MS trick, restart your machine?

The way to go if 'ol Bill G don't answer his phone, is a different browser *grin* You can get to stuff without IE, and avoid most problems.

I suggest you try another browser. Go to www.netscape.com and download Netscape 7.1 (it's free), and see what you get.
