Sizing issue after clicking on user name

Tante Apr 20, 2012 05:27 AM

I'm seeing something weird: when I click on a user name to see that user's posts, the page that comes up is about three sizes larger than the page I was on (font, etc, as if I had expanded it). This happens with different user names, on different boards. I'm using Chrome on a MacBook, v 10.6.8.

Just thought I should let someone know!

    Did you (or anyone else that uses your computer) expand any pages on CHOW? Since the Profile page is on the same domain as the editorial half of the site (www.chow.com instead of chowhound.chow.com), many modern browsers will remember your zoom-in settings and bring them back when you visit any page on that half of the site. You can reset the zoom settings on a page with the keyboard shortcut CTRL + 0 (or CMD + 0 on Apple systems).

      Well, CMD+0 reset the zoom settings, which as you said, must have been saved from a previous visit in which I expanded the page. And now I feel quite foolish. :) Thanks for the insight, and sorry to have wasted your time!

        Super excellent answer, Engineering!

        Chrome also has the wrench symbol(Far upper right in address bar) that shows the zoom value and adjustments.
