    Default page too big for screen

    can anyone tell me how to resize the page on this forum so it's not a page and a half wide? i can use my "tools" option on my pc and set to 85% and it will fit but then the font is too small. on top of that when i leave and go to another site i have to reset to 100%. there must be a way to resize the page without doing it on the computer. any of you guys know how to do this?
    thanks

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    Try hitting at the same time the "CONTROL" & "-" (just right of the zero) to make the page content smaller. To do the opposite, at the same time hit "CONTROL" & "SHIFT" & "+". This works for Firefox & Internet Explorer.

    The other option I have found to get the page to fit is to close your favorites or history section (or any other side collums) on the page while viewing Kahr Talk.

    i am using internet explorer. i have done the ctrl +- thing but font gets too small to read and i have to go back to 100% afterwards to view other sites that actually fit the screen. of all the trillions of pages i have ever visited this site is the only one with this problem.

    I agree, this forum is the only one that does not re-size itself to fit the screen and I often wondered why.

    thanks for all the replies guys. i've looked around a bit and found i'm not the only one trying to figure this out. i have attempted to contact the web master but as of yet do not have an answer. i am assuming that they (owner/webmasters) are aware of this and are leaving it "as is". it's their forum and they can set it up any way they chose. with that being said there are tons of forums and we can (subscribe/unsubscribe) to those that (meet/don't meet) our individual needs. it's a shame though because there are a bunch of really great, really smart, guys on here.

    The boss is busy tending to some family issues currently. There are some upgrades he's currently sorting out and I'm not sure if they will address this issue or not.

    I don't experience it myself or if I do I don't notice it.

    Giving up a quality friendly forum for technical inconvenience don't make sense to me but one does what one has to do I suppose.

    I'm about as technology challenged as they come but I stumble my way thru.

    I had this happen to me on this site almost a year ago. Did it for a few days and then back to normal. I didn't do anything to fix it. Just a strange bug on this site that only attacks one member and then doesn't appear again for months.
    Very interesting...
