    I like a price ticker at the top, but for some reason it's making the format of menus display all wonky on my phone. Hmmmmm....

    On my Iphone the menu automatically goes into a drop down menu as header space disappears. Everyone probably figured that out but I figure it doesn't hurt to say it.

    Why does Jmb's ticker always quote higher prices than the kitco ticker? Why is there not an agreed upon spot price? I find it disturbing.

    Anyone?

    Not only phones / smart phones. My home computer- stand alone CPU with a stand alone monitor now does the same thing.
    To see the New Post section I have to go over to three dots (...) and pull it up from there.

    The Watched Forum or Watched Threads I could do without.
    I use the New Post section. Those two above I do not.

    Thanks - since the JMB ticker is "absent" from my laptop screen - blocked by one of my "filters" (tracker or spam or adblock or peerblock or ghostery)

    Yeah I hear ya,

    That is due to responsive styling, of which the shitko ticker doesn't like to participate,

    As screen size increases, then that goes away. I noticed that as I was testing it.

    So yeah, I need a workaround for it or just toss the damn thing and be done with messing with my header.

    That I am planning to fix when I work on the logo and Nameplate in the header,

    Fixed one thing, and another pops up is all it is.

    First of all, I wanted the menu proper

    The > > > disappeared when I decreased the size. These old eyes need as large a type face as possible.

    On another note you are like me, always seeing a better way, and always tinkering and fine tuning.

    Keep up the good work Scorp, I know I appreciate your efforts in making the forum look good.

    That sounds to me like a good excuse to buy a bigger monitor.

    No, a lot of guys access this place on tablets or phones. That is where the issue comes in.

    The screenshot I used only 1/2 of my monitor size, which is somewhere around a 21, and it is fine.

    Using smaller screens or hitting Ctrl + to increase size, is going to bring on those issues.

    It still needs to be rectified somehow. Just have to get my brain around it.

    Using the zoom feature changes the layout a lot. So you old guys who are zoomed in 170% are going to get a whole different experience.

    Most of old guys wouldn't have a problem if the default font size in the post boxes was larger. But that brings up the problem Scorp mentioned of folks accessing via phones and tablets. I'm on a Chromebook and the screen is a hair;s bit bigger than a large tablet so I have to zoom to 150% for a easy read. The font face matters also, if it was Ariel or Tahoma it would be easier to read at 100%. Now on my desktop w/22" monitor I can read 100% fine.

    Ole Scorp is just trying to find a middle ground, and I'm OK with whatever he decides on, I'm adjustable, says my wife.

    If I was using my phone or tablet more than a laptop/desktop I'd be asking Scorp to install TapaTalk. All the big forums I visit use it and phone folks seem to really like it.

    yeah, looked into it and downloaded it,

    so I have that too to figure out.

    but that was yesterdays project that was sidestepped............

    another issue popped up that GH found,

    on tablets, as screen size gets smaller, the header starts messing up,

    as it resizes, things start moving around and the 'add new post/thread' disappears on the forums with no subforums.

    need to find a fix for that.

    Hey GH,

    The charts were in the wrong place affecting a few things.

    took the code and moved it to the proper location, and now things are aok.

    We have the fix, thanks for the heads up

    yeah, kind of a bitch,

    I have a test template to check stuff to work,

    One particular thing been working on, works fine on the test plate, but doesn't work on the other plates

    Takes a long time to try to find the issue then put it to the rest of the color schemes or templates

    Then the guys working on small screens throw me for a loop as typically I never see the issues that crop up.

    still working on the title and logo,

    does anyone have a decent photo program that can create a transparent pic and add the gim round along with the title to it?

    Please advise as mine looks terrible

    Also decreased the size of the jmb charts as they were backgrounding on me

    Can't help you with the round pic, but the changes made a world of difference here. Only suggestion I have (when you find time) is to change the type face of the posts from Times Roman to Ariel or Tahoma like the rest of the forum.

    yeah, the type face needs work also as it isn't crisp

    not good to do this without a decent program to tighten it all up

    finished for now. Changed the header color all skins/styles to black with matching logo colors. The colors now change everything x the header as you choose viewing style to personal preference.
