Small forum problem....
« on: November 08, 2011, 11:22:40 AM »
When I go to the forum and try to read one of the posts I can't see the white text part or body  of the post unless I go to my screen and push the menu and raise the brightness to 100(auto on my screen sets brightness to 0)...probably just me and my lack of computer knowledge but was wondering if there is another way to set my screen up....thanks   Dave

Sounds like your screen brightness is set too dark. Most of the time the screen defaults to 50% brightness and not 0%. I am also working on changing the text to white instead of grey. Sometimes also your video setting could be adjusted too on your screen through the operating system and not on your monitor itself.

Yes, it helped on my laptop. Thank you. New look is great Brett.

I did notice one little thing though. I tried searching for something and the search engine said that each search word HAD to be at least two characters. So I could not effectively search for "8 track".

I looked through the settings and there is no configuration in there for number of characters to search by..... so I will have to look into that deeper.
