This is not a bug, but I have a question. My eyes are bad and I have to zoom the text to read.
Using the old style I could zoom the font way large and it would wrap, not stretch the whole page and create a bottom scrollbar.
With the new styles, when I zoom, it zooms the whole page instead of just the font size. I've tried the larger font size in my chrome browser, but that makes hyperlinks on the board overlap, and it's hard to read and select overlapping links.

I'm not complaining, just wondering whether there are any tricks to get the font size larger without stretching the page?

Thanks for all your hard work, this site is an excellent resource. :)

What's with the error notices on the default skin ?

I'm really hoping it's this years April Fool's Day prank and not something I have to be concerned about and potentially having my account deleted. I've been on ZS since 2009 and I'd hate for all my details to get deleted because of a bug in the system.

And if this is 2014's April Fool's Day prank, forget I said anything and carry on.

The only glitch I have noticed; it says I have one unread message in my inbox.
I open the inbox and read the message... again. And again. No matter how many times I read it, there is still an unread message notice at the top of the screen.
No biggie, just FYI. :)

Here is one. I got an email about a reply to the "Migration Complete (Bug Report Thread)" . When I click on the link I got an error message saying I did not have permission to read the post. I had to use the search function to be able to post. I hope this is important enough to post here. If not please accept my apology.

It was a spam post in this thread. So you were notified that a post was made, but then I moved the post to a mods-only subforum that we use to collect spam for analysis.

Not a bug, yet, but I noticed that when I post the sub header says there is a 60,000 charachter limit!?
Subject:

That seems excessive and if one of these web bot crawlers starts maxing out the posts they could burn bandwidth and possibly use it for DOS type attack. Maybe some much smaller limit would still be reasonable.

I used to see embedded youtube videos on my Ipad, but not since the migration.

They still show up on my desktop machine at home.

I cannot reproduce your problem, unfortunately. I've tried 5 different computers at work running different versions of FF, and they all work as intended.

Yesterday I was redirected away from ZS (about noon-ish, PST). I had read a couple of threads and looking at a page of active topics (situation normal), but then each time I clicked on a link I was redirected away from ZS to something called "ImageHosting" offering web hosting services. I tried about 10 different threads and links but they all redirected me. I closed ZS and checked several other websites where everything was normal. Tried again later and it was gone, everything back to normal.

One of us had a virus for at least a few minutes, and I think it was ZS.

Today I noticed there are 12 active users online, six of them are bots...

I've hit that limit. Twice. It was infuriating.

Let's just say you burn more bandwidth loading the images (hosted by ZS) associated with any given page than you'd burn posting a 60,000 character entry.

Yeah, for a total of like 30 seconds I copied a template .htaccess to the wrong place while testing things on the new website. Sorry about that guys.
