What's Going On??

Post by Lenp » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:07 pm

BIG TYPE STYLES!
Is this a problem or am I impaired?
There is a pop up after login, too fast to be seen, normal fonts in the board index then vision impaired fonts again on the message screens.
Several browsers were tried, same result!

Say it's not me!
Say the sysop's have been fiddling!

Going on here too. This was at the top of the page:

Code: Select all

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /posting.php on line 20: include() [function.include]: Unable to allocate memory for pool.
Something is funky here. Everything is huge except the graphics (smilies, color squares and borders). Preview puts it back to normal size.

Win7 Home Premium, IE8.

As far as the log-in goes, it depends on which computer I use. If I use the
"family" computer, I get logged out pretty regularly, and not of my own
volition. Now "my" laptop has done a pretty good job of keeping me on here.
Depends on what the other(s) are doing to get rid of the cookies, I guess.

Wow, this is really wierd. I went to another post I had made to edit it
and when it opened it up in the EDIT window, it was all huge. Preview
did not change the size. Now I am here replying and all is normal.

Strange...

***Just went back the the aforementioned post and it was all normal
sized again. What the????

I haven't seen the big fonts lately. Did they just 'go away' ?
Looks like we are on autopilot since the lack of a sysop response is obvious!

This is for all of you to see, including ADMIN.

I used my standard shortcut to get here, and login worked as expected. I was greeted with this:

Image

The error notices at the top:

Code: Select all

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /index.php on line 21: include() [function.include]: Unable to allocate memory for pool.
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions_content.php on line 429: include() [function.include]: Unable to allocate memory for pool.
Note the regular size of the non-web browser text and the "gigantor" size of the in-web browser text.
Laptop is only a few months old, 4 GB RAM, Win7, IE8 v-8.0.7600.16385.

Had stuff to go do, came back, went to post this message and was greeted with a normal sized page.
Are any of you others who are experiencing "gigantor syndrome" seeing similar messages and/or experiencing
similar erratic behavior? Any ideas ADMIN? Michael K.?

Yeah,

This has been going on for a while now. :sad:

I have upgraded my Firefox to Version 10.01.00.
So far, all the other sites I go to are normal.

Logging in now....
The font size is how I normally have it.
Though, I've logged in a few time before,
and have gotten that error message at the very top of the screen.
Plus, my fonts were extra large and in bold.

And So, where are the sysops!!!!!

All browsers tested, several systems tested, all the same problem...
Many people seeing the same issues.
Also it seems to take longer to load different pages.
Upgrade are often downgrades.

If it looks like a pig, smells like a pig......Well, you know the rest!

PM sent to M.K. Awaiting response.

EDIT: When I posted this, I got the message that I could not post so soon after
my previous post. All I did was a PM. My last actual post was several days ago.
Another glitch? Hmmm....

It's getting looked at ASAP. Sorry guys... I noticed IE seems to work better with the bugs.
