    Please enlarge the font within <pre> tags

    Currently when people post codes with [ php ] or [ code ] tags, the font is too small, please change them back to the size that was in the previous version of SPF

    I mean the posts in SPF, which are posted by wrapping around [ php ] and [ code ]

    While, I don't see the issue as the font is the same size as the rest of the content text. Just a different font (set by your browser I might add) that is smaller than the default content font.

    However, several changes will be made to the way code is displayed in the community with some advanced options available.

    $n 0;$n $count_r;$n++)
     } 
    tags and there was html font attributes showing and of course it doesnt show here but it did when I posted in the php forum.

    Small text in CODE/PHP

    Hey,

    I did a search on this forum and didn't come up with anything but I think that the text size for the CODE/PHP tags is a little too small. My IE Text Size setting is on Medium and CODE text is barely readable to my young eyes

    Just pointing it out

    I'd like to add that the CODE text is really really small. It's very hard to read. AND you cant BOLD something inside the CODE tags

    just if you wanted to know: i saw in the thread in the Announcements forum that you guys were having problems with IE 5 making text too large. i use IE 5 most of the time (i almost hate 5.5 and 6 ) and yes, the text is very big on the forums. so big that i have to set the size in IE to "Smaller." when i do this, the regular text looks about the same size as in IE 6 on my other system. however, in IE 5, the php/code blocks look perfect (just like how they used to be w/ old forum), whereas it's tiny like Sean posted in 6.
