I have an idea.

Having a problem with the Forum? Or feedback about the forum? This is the place.

I second the ability to change the font size on the forums (BTW the default is a 2 in Verdana for me) just to keep everything standard. avskip likes it at a 3 while I personally like the 2 and seeing a large font after small font posts makes a visual discontinuity.

As a temporary solution, you can use the "Text Size->Increase/Decrease" feature of your browser. On Firefox, it is "Ctrl++" (control key and the plus key) to increase and the "Ctrl+-" to decrease the font size.

In IE, hold down the Ctrl key while using your mouse's scroll wheel

If you do the same key combination Tom described in IE, it's actually Zoom and not Text Size modification.

Just remember that the navigation links of lds tech (not the forums: work purpose people etc) will be misplaced so mouseover happens farther to the right then what it should be.

Also if you have the MS Wireless Laser Keyboard the Zoom button is on the lower left corner of the keyboard, up zooms in and down zooms out.

Yes, this is why we are re-working the theme. These kinds of bugs bug me.

Which theme? The forums work great when zoomed but the LDS Tech site itself has the problem. Or do you mean a general layout so both forums and site?

One request I have is to have the naviation tree also at the bottom of the messages so I don't have the scroll back to the top. The navigation tool I'm taking about is the one:

LDS Technology Forums > Projects > Church Web Sites > Technology Web Site > I have an idea.

General layout for both forums and site. Currently they are not as well connected as I would like them to be so using the newer "forum" theme, for example, you can see differences at times in font sizes, styles, etc.
