Sorry Dean, maybe I should have prefaced that with the warning that some older machines really slow down and freeze when attempting that. It's a very CPU (and/or GPU) intensive operation. In most cases these settings are preserved automatically in IE and Firefox on a site by site or global manner. If you finally have things back to the way you're comfortable then simply closing the browser and re-opening it should be sufficient. If the browser crashes without a successful close the new settings will not be stored. If you're still having problems let me know and I'll try my best to help.

Any ideas on making hyperlinks visible?
Traditionally these are coloured blue. I noticed that links are now
very similar to ordinary text.
Like this one.
I've tried using the font colours found to the right of the edit page --->>>
But this is the result of mixing colour with hyperlinks.
I've tried using bold.Like this one.
If I use bold and colour together I get this.

Regarding the box with the red X see my post on page one about a bad img link. You're not missing anything, the link/img is useless.

When a forum has a new post this image is used Image when there are no new posts this image is used Image The difference is a slight change in color.

Hmm. I wonder, what does the US English pack have that the Brit pack didn't?
What happens if I spell "tyres" or, uh, COLOUR! ?? Centre? Fibreglass? Aluminium!
Darn, nothing. :smile:

While you were making your point did you happen to
notice there is a font colour table to the right of the
forum edit window?

When you use the new BBCode for colour is now

Code: Select all

[color=#0000FF][/color]

Are the quote and edit buttons invisible for anyone else or just me?

yup. If you switch back to the British Language, they will come back. We will add them for the US English pack later next week.. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The link for those options are still active. Just no icons yet.

Also going to be adding a mod that will let you print out a single post, rather than the entire thread!

Well as long as you are talking upcoming changes Michael, will you be reinstalling the 'Add Image" button in the near future?
