What is BBCode?
Also, with my screen size set to 100% I get big bland margins on the sides and very small font size. If I set the screen size at 120 %, I have to scroll left and right to read meassages and the font size is still pretty small.  Is this something to do with my laptop or is there a way you can make an adjustment to make the font larger.

BBcode is a way to format posts on messageboards. Hit reply and take a look at the B, i, u, Quote, etc buttons just underneath the subject. You use those to format text, URLs, images, etc. For example, if you want to bold something then click the B button, type, and then click the B button again. It will add a bracketed 'b' and a bracketed '/b' to indicate the start and end of bolded text. You can also type, hightlight text, and click the B button and it will automatically add the tags at the beginning and end of what you highlighted. Feel free to play around with them.

I will take a look and get back to you on the other issue.

What kind of computer are you using and what browser? I have a Mac laptop and use Chrome as my browser. My margins are not very big and the font size is normal. I have a Windows desktop and Internet Explorer 11 at work and have no issues there either.

Like Gate Raider I have problems having the text going too far to the right, so I have to scroll with the bar back and forth to read every post. I have a PC desktop using Firefox if that helps.

I have a Toshiba laptop with a 15 inch screen, Windows 7 and IE 9.  When the main page opens there are large margins on the sides and the font size is quite small.  Using "tools" and zooming out to 150% pretty much fills the screen.  Zooming out to 125% makes the font size much better but the margins return.  Gotcha on the BBCode.  I didn't realize that is was it referred to .  I suspect the font size and margins are more to do with my laptop than something else.  The board is usable as is.

For what it's worth, I just opened the old board with zoom at 125% and it fills the screen.  Opened and closed this one with the zoom set at 125% and the margins are wide.   The board works, so don't [b]spend a lot of time working on this[/b].

Guess that should be [b]more like this[/b].  I'll get it sooner or later.

You must have BBCode disabled either in your profile settings or in the 'Options' section just above the 'Submit' button.

The tags are correct  Very Happy
