I tried that, but that's not the answer. I think the adminastrator of this site has to change some kind of code , so when I log in it will be the right size. any help would be appreciated.

What resolution are you using?

One other idea might be if your browser or your operating system might be set to use large fonts... Which browser do you use?

I guess one other thing to note is that sometimes linked pictures can blow the margins way out... but this doesn't sound quite right for what you're describing. This problem would only affect threads with extra-large pictures, not every thread on the board...

Countryboy,
My display resolution is set for 1024x768, and the site fits very neatly, with a narrow blue border on each side (except when a big photo-link blows out the margins). I use the normal size fonts both in Firefox and in Windows XP. It looks fine on my end. I do keep the browser maximized, though -- there's no room to spare. (Not quite true -- I can narrow the browser about 3/4" before the fixed-width frame has to scroll.)

"page is smaller than the screen" -- I thought that was what we wanted.

Sure would be great if I could look over your shoulder somehow... :D

I think what he means is the window (not our page but the lit-up part of the screen) does not fully use the screen - which of course is not good.
Mike, are you describing the case in which his display device does not directly handle this resolution setting, and does kinda a "letterbox" thing with black space around the portion of the tube that it's drawing on?

The thing I don't get about this idea is that it seems backwards. If this resolution (1024x768) is too great for his display device, then it either should reject the setting or virtualize it -- the virtual desktop is greater than what will fit on the glass, so when you move your mouse to one edge, the virtual desktop scrolls under the mouse instead of the other way 'round. This happens to me when I try to use 1280x1024 on the laptop's built-in TFT display; it'll do 1024x768 but has to virtualize 1280x1024.

Countryboy, is that what's going on when you switch to 1024x768? Does the desktop seem to be too big for your monitor, and slide all over the place when you mouse to one edge? (It indeed can be dizzying... I don't care for that at all, although it works for some folks...)

That's what I'm thinking but like you said not being there it's hard to say. I've seen that issue myself and it was a firmware driver issue on the display board. Once I updated it from the makers web site it worked fine.

What are you meaning by "using normal size fonts both in firebox and in Windows xp ? We have windows xp but we cant kind normal fonts . How do you get there to set fonts as normal?

Ok, I got the resolution changed and got it to fit the screen, but the print is so small that it hurts my eyes to read it. This want work. I can't read up close, I have to be about a foot and a half away to see it.
I dont understand why the other sites like crappie .com and others are just fine.

On my computer the fonts type and size are exactly the same as on Crappie.com The blue background cuts a bit more glare over there but otherwise they are identical. I'm not sure whats happening with yours CB?
