To wow, and all with similar concerns:

Go to Edit Profile, click on Display Preferences, go to
Font Size and delete what it has in it, and type 1 in the little box. Don't forget to click Submit, as I did! Then go to Main Index and see what it looks like. It it's still too small, repeat these steps until it's comfortable for you to read.

Ok, this is really strange... yesterday I had the old layout for AWADtalk, this morning I log on and hey presto!, no pink logos to be seen. From what I read, some people may have had the new format already for a few days, so I wonder why it didn't happen at the same time for everybody?
I am now getting used to this design, but I think I will like it...

Wow, I have a Spanish-layout keyboard, but this is what I do to change the font of web page. To make it larger, I simultaneously press Ctrl and the key that sits just to the left of my Enter key (on the top row, you know the Enter button is two rows "tall"). On my keyboard, this key contains the +, the * and the ]. Doing this refreshes the page in a font one point bigger. To make it smaller, I press Ctrl and the key that sits just to the left of that one, which for me contains the grave and circumflex accents, and [.

I hope this works the same for you. If not, there must be a different method such as the one Jackie describes, or even a more straightforward key shortcut.

I have now got the new-look AWADtalk, and I'm afraid I don't like it either. I find it very cramped-looking. The old style had a very relaxed spacious feel to it, which the new layout just doesn't have.

Plus the purple to show where you've already been is too dark. On the page nos. it's difficult to tell which is purple and which is black to show where you are.

Okay, I logged on this morning and got the new page, and I now I see what you're all on about.

By the way, I got a PM from someone with (apparently) no subject line. Therefore there appears to be nothing to click on the read the message. Is this new? I think all other PMs I've even gotten had subject lines. Does anyone know how I might read it?

Display Preferences ... Font Size and delete what it has in it, and type 1 in the little box

Dear Jackie, did that awhile ago and I have nice "2" size type in the message sections ... it does not affect the very top area that has main index, search, edit profile etc. in an odd shade of plum. Ah, well I'll live with it .

I clicked on my post-name and it was Nov 25 I joined. Another reason to clebrate at Thanksgiving...
