    I appreciate all the hard work you fellows are doing but at the risk of being shouted down I must bring your attention to another forum of which I am a member:


    so clear and easy to read. I realise it is beyond your scope at the moment but maybe in the future?

      AskWoody is based on the original blog, with a forum added on 2 years ago. The site you link is only a forum, and looking at the platform it’s based on, it’s not able to fit our growing components and needs.

      We’re benefitting from WordPress’s ability to have functional plugins, which their competitors aren’t seamlessly offering at this stage.

      The page you mention uses vBulletin, which is also the software used at WindowsSecrets.com, Tenforums, My Digital Life, and many other places on the web that are primarily bulletin boards.

      AskWoody, for better or worse, is different. It started as a blog in WordPress, and added a bulletin board feature called bbPress. The design (theme) you see now is horrible by modern standards – it’s ten years old, mobile unfriendly, and hard to follow. I’ll change it. But we’re sticking with WordPress and bbPress. They’re stable, and it would be disruptive and cost a fortune to move.

      A little thought experiment: What would a blog look like buried in a vBulletin skin? I’ve never seen it done successfully.

      Hold down your control key and scroll your mouse wheel up or down. Problem solved. 🙂

        Zoom on which site?

          You can enlarge the entire contents of almost any screen on your display by holding down one of the control keys and while holding that down scroll your mouse wheel. Hopefully that can appease the OP for the time being.

      The site’s software is Xenforo.
      It sure looks like vBulletin

      Xenforo is developed by Kier Darby and Mike Sullivan, who developed vBulletin originally before it was bought by Jelsoft / Internet Brands.
