I see this black box when i use netscape (i use linux). But when i use mozilla i don't see the black box. But mozilla is not really practical, and generally i use netscape.
This black box appears only when i open a topic, but don't appear when we access the forum without opening any topic.
For example for you, the black box correspond to 2/3 of the screen (and a line of a sentence for you is, in the case of the precedent message, "Yeah, people.. If you're using" and then it is another line), while for me it is 1/3 of the screen and hence a line is longer than you and contains more word.

Thanks for the help

First of all , I appreciate very much all your efforts, and may Allah rewards u "Dunia and Akhera".
I see the black boxes when I am using netscap in a UNIX system. Right now from home with windows and explorer, every thing is fine.
One more thing for the security. I am using a machine in the university UNIX network. Whenever I brows the site, I gor automatically loggin, which means, that anyone use that machine and brows the site will get loggin to with my name??
This is what most likely what happened, however, I have to find some one trustee in the Lab and ask him to login to see what gonaa happened?

Yes bro, the forum leaven cookies behind to leave you logged in. I believe there is an option to dissable that when u log in, a little check mard box. Other than that, you can always log off before you close the window and no one will have acess to your login

Why are Al_Radhiy's boxes bigger than anyone elses? I mean the boxes that contain each post?
Posted 31 July 2002 - 03:12 AM
thats because he has a big signiture in his posts. the big Arabic Ayah.
I will message him and have him remove it soon Inshallah. Or you can awlays increase your resolution, I bet you're still at the ond 640x800 setting.
does everything (including other sites) look very big to you?

Well um, as compared to what? Only his box looked big to me.
When you say change the resolution, does that mean the words will be smaller? If so, I'll keep it like this. I'm in denial about needing reading glasses, so this size is better for me.

You should have taken a screenshot (a picture) because PDF/HTML are just instruction languages so unless our system has the bug as well, we will not see any of the problems. (In other words, there is nothing wrong with the PDF/HTMLs.)

When I say "change the resolution" I mean.. right click on your desktop, go to properties, then settings and then see the little knob that changes the "resolution".. Play around with it, to th right and to the left,y ou'll see what I mean..
It'll just make everyhting on your screen smaller (which makes your monitor biger, holding more stuff on the same space) Lol that made no sense, but go ahead and try it
[b:post_uid0]Brother Ali786[/b:post_uid0].. Use any graphics program like Adobe photoshop. If not, just click on your desktop, press on "Print Screen" (a key found beside the home and End keys) Then load up Paint program, the one that comes with windows, and go file-paste. It'll paster a picture of your desktop. Make sure you're looking at the black box when you click "print screen". Save it and send it to me
[b:post_uid0]Al_Radhiy[/b:post_uid0] your sig. is perfect now. thanks bro
