I wouldn't mind having the poster's location show up in the poster info section on the left.

Thats been there since I started the site last year and I do not feel making it mandatory is necessary JMO. . It is voluntary and all you need to do is add the info there if you wish. 

 Right under post count.  Under forum profile  just add info to  Personal Text.  Look at mine I did it to show you.



You can also add location in location section and people will see location when they click on your name.  I see yours is Vermont, just add to personal text to make show up under post count if you like.

I agree, and was not suggesting it be mandatory.

I've had my location filled in in the "location" field on the forum profile, and wondered why it wasn't showing up. I didn't think about filling in the "Personal Text" field. Got it now.

Howdy.  Thanks for creating the site. Well laid out, lots of insight.  One comment: it is difficult to read the characters of text which is on top of the background picture of wood chips or the like.  ie: the page numbers of the forum.  Is it possible to put a contrasting background behind those small regions? Cheers, Ken  ;D

Thanks for your input.

Page numbers can be found at TOP and at BOTTOM of pages. For me they are easily seen on this end in both areas over chips.

Welcome and hope you share your knowledge with us working on saws etc.


Thanks,
Kevin

Signed on to your forum just a short time ago really like it so far. My only problem is with my ipad I cannot make out page numbers or anything in black. On the ipad it doesn't show against the leaves, also the white news and welcome lines do not show up. Hate to be a complainer but its something that doesn't show up. My desk top works fine easy to see, my iPhone also has trouble. Thanks for having this site available during what seems to be unsettled times.

Ice I'm not smart enough to figure out how to change just the color of letters and numbers in certain areas.  I have to go with what is offered as a bulk insert right now.  Sorry.



I'm not a Ipod, pad, phone,  etc fan or user of anything. If it has anything to do with apple I  run the other way.  JMO, but I know some love their stuff.

Once I get used to something I hate change. This is about the limit of my computer skills, and so far no problems. It's the information and skills here that matter.

Going to have to say that my "old eyes" are having problems with the
wood chips background on this forum.
It is like camouflage.
The small/tiny blue text is almost impossible to notice or read with the wood chip background.
Love the content of the site, would love to see the background changed to something less "busy".

I hate to get rid of the wood chips because folks like them. Plus separated this site from  the oh hum boring look of every other looking site.

I'll try some different letter colors in the chips. Trying black.

Did you check out the black letters with chips?

Now I am on a white oak wood grain with dark blue letters.  Which was easier to read black or dark blue letters on the white oak?  Did both.
