surprised me too... do you like the new theme?

 

Personally, I like changes from time to time as long as they don't slow me down. I would like to see some 'personalization' allowed but maybe if I read around more, I'll found out how that works. I'm interested in knowing exactly what all changed.

I think it's pretty much the same Paul. But it sure has been narrowed down quite a bit. I guess it will just take a little time getting used to, huh ?

Yes it's certainly narrower but it looks more integrated as part of Roxio site with the orange theme. ;)

Try #master_wrap {width: 90% !important ;} in Stylish (Firefox addon) to widen the page display. Not a big fan of orange. Will be doing some serious color tweaking in Stylish including blocking the orange icons and using the alt text navigation instead.

Never used that add-on before and have to give it a try. Thanks for the tip. ;)

Font a little small for these old eyes. Not too keen on the format either. Oh well, the world moves ahead and one must adapt I guess. Although I have to admit I have less enthusiasm for signing in now. This view gives me a headache.

Good tip on Stylish.It definately makes it a bit more palpatable.

I don't mind the colors, but the display font size is giving me a headache.

 

Anyone have a magnifying glass? :lol:

No but I was already starting to wear my glasses more during the day than not. This will make it worse.

In FF if you do a ctrl ++ (ctrl with the + or -) you can increase or decrease the screen size. It's not the same as if they'd widen the margins.

 

sisterscape, I'm having trouble finding the style you mentioned....care to point me with a link for that one? That site is very slow too.

I just did this by clicking view>text size>increase on Firefox. Good tip.

 

On a non-display related note, I like the fact that I don't accidentally hit customer service when trying to search ( :lol: ), but I don't like the way the search feature is now working. Unless I'm doing something wrong (always a possibility :rolleyes:) search results now bring you to the first "hit" in your search, rather than a list of hits from which to choose.

I've gotten that far but when I open up the add ons, then click on Stylish, it tells me to go visit the stylish site (which doesn't seem to work so well at the moment). There's no place to add anything. I must be doing something wrong or need stronger glasses.

Hit Write and it will open the box then paste that line in.Make sure you get all the way from the # to the last }.

Click the Write icon. then copy the following line onto clipboard and paste on the lower box of the Add Style window that popped up when you clicked the Write icon.

 

#master_wrap {width: 90% !important ;}

 

Press Preview to see how it looks like. Terry changed his to 100 (instead of 90).

Ah, the '}' makes all the difference in the world. Man I'm dense!

I also looked all over the page for the Stylish icon and found it at the bottom right.

Thanks for the tip and the help.

Yeah,the 90% only partially fills my screen.

Now if I can figure out lines of code for other things maybe I can customize it some more.

sisterscape, I'm having trouble finding the style you mentioned....care to point me with a link for that one? That site is very slow too.

I'm just doing it on my desktop. Here's what I've got so far - no header or footer to boot! I'll post the final version here once I get it tweaked. It'll be my afternoon project.

 

EDIT: Slightly different colors and other tweaks. Sorry the presentation is messy . . . it's a work in progress. Check back regularly for 'improvements'.

I set it at 90% because I like margins. Download the DOM Inspector or Aardvark addons to decipher the structure of the site without slogging through source code.

 

I don't mind the colors, but the display font size is giving me a headache.

 

Anyone have a magnifying glass? :lol:

Try the NoSquint addon. I couldn't surf without it.

So you can simply add code one after the other on the same page with Stylish and not have add them one at a time separately?

Styles for the same URL go in one file.
