Once again text size is too small to read

It can not be changed using IE7. It works on other sites Just doesn't work on Chowhound anymore. This has happened from time to time.

That is fine. I don't need to sign onto Chowhound anymore. After a while the endless errors get to be too muich. I doubt Chow reads this or it will get fixed. I'm no longer in the mood to wait endless months for a simple fix.

I know this can be fixed easily almost as certain that Chow won't fix it.

  1. The text is the exact same size for me in IE7 as it is in Firefox. Is there something else that might be causing this problem for you?

      No. I assume that a bunch of changes went in last night as that is when the text size got knocked out, the search of restaurants stopped working correctly, and mark as duplicate came up with a new slew of problems, a few of which is the drop down list is now covered by the red buttons, the restaurant being marked as duplicate now shows up in the list while the original restaurant doesn't. And so it goes ... again.

        I'm afraid the text resizing is working for me in IE7, as well.

        I'll try to verify the mark as duplicate issues. Do you have any specific restaurants that need marking that I can look at?

          Thanks. I just moved on. Don't remember.

        I have a raging cold so maybe I wasn't being clear.

        I am sure the default text size has not changed. That size always has been too small for me and gives me a headache if I look at it too long.

        What has changed is the ability to change the size of the text through the browser. Changing the text size from medium to largest to smallest ... nada.

          And ... about that search problem ... restaurants are getting dropped from the list however I can't really pin exactly why so I didn't post anything until I could figure it out. I think it has something to do with using search options ... different though than needing to update the check boxes.

          For example, using the check box for 'late night' won't turn up the old records that were flagged in the tags section prior to the conversion. That is understandable.

          This is something else though. Can't figure out what though. At first I thought only one page of results were being displayed, but it is not that. It is just that there should be more restaurants displayed based on the search criteria ... often many more

        2. There are a couple ways to increase the text size in IE7.
          Holding down ctrl and hitting + is one way or under the view menu, go to zoom and then zoom in.

          By the way, the text looks fine to me in IE7 windows xp pro, sp3.
          What version of windows are you using?
