    Forum Suggestion

    First of all I think its GREAT that you decided to add a forum. This site has been one of my favorites for a long time, its nice to be able to "meet" you and other "Phoronix Phans" .

    Now, one thing I'd like to see changed would be the minimum resolution the forum scales to. My laptop is 1024x768 and I have to scroll horizontally to see everything.

    Thanks.

    1. There is a field in the profile where they can add their Linux Distribution of use.

    2. FAQ isn't currently implemented. Is there a link still showing up somewhere in the forum for the FAQ page?

    3. Due to no avatars at this point, the username and other relevant information is moved to the top.

    4. Signatures should be enabled.

    Hey guys,

    Grats on the phorums, they look great. Now for a couple ideas I have had.

    1) How about adding a field underneath the username, where people can list what Distro they use?

    2) Broken FAQ?

    3) Is there a way to adjust the forums to appear in the more common threaded mode? With the user information to the left instead of on top?

    4) I haven't seen any signatures yet.. are they ruled out? Would you consider small non-HTML sigs?

    That's all I can think of. Keep up the good work

    The correct WYSIWYG editor font is appearing for me, even if logging out of the account, etc...

    Changing the monospace font to arial 'fixed' it, but I actually like it with courier. Have you tried creating a non-admin user and testing it out Michael?

    That CSS style is an admin option, and should be applied to all users. So far I haven't received any other reports of WYSIWYG editor text problems.

    If it helps you out, the CSS style for the WYSIWYG editor text is "arial, sans-serif, verdana".
    Not sure where you set that. I just looked int the user CP, and at the bottom of the user options, there a dropdown that allows setting the editor to "full WYSIWYG". This allows previewing posts in real-time (size, etc.). I'm not sure if this overrides the Monospace font, though.

    What browser do you use?I just set it to Bitstream Vera Sans in my Firefox setup. In the Fonts config dialog, changing the font for "Monospace" did the trick.
