For the 800px wide issue, the layout is setup to require at least 900-950px wide and is not easily changeable, sorry.
I normally use an Eizo at 1200 * 1600 in portrait orientation, and the main "luminous Landscape discussion Forum" title box is too wide, and goes over the search box and the PM info, since last visit etc. ( I get "Dick Roadnight" without the "Hey"). I will send you a screen shot if you need it. This is OK in portrait orientation.

When there is only one post on a page, the LuLa window shrinks to a small proportion of the browser window... this may be correct,,, but when it happened I thought that I had stumbled on a major bug and took a screen shot to report it to you.

Thank you for all your good work.

CSS compatibility strikes again?

Here at work on a crappy 1280*1024 everything is fine, and I must shrink the window to about 900px large to get  the first "S" of "Show unread posts since last visit" getting hidden by the banner.
FireFox 3.6.8, WinXP SP2.

Thta still could be an issue on mobile devices though ; but on SMF forums, there is a (very crude but phone-frinedly I'd say) "WAP" mode if you add a ";wap" to the topic url. Voyez plutôt. Late edit : less crude with ;wap2.
Don't know whether there is some automation to this...

Some more tweaks have been made.  There are next page/prev page arrows for the topics pages (there was a mod for this that works).  Link names have changed and I made the Previous/Next post links go away.  If people complain enough for it it can come back with better wording.  Also some small stylesheet tweaks -- quotes, code blocks, links in posts and lines separating the posts.

I will at some point figure out how to kill that marquee text too Marquee is officially dead :P

Wow, all these changes and fast...thanks monsieur Guertin...

too bad the marquee is dead, but i can see it getting on peoples nerves...

I can get the "S" of "show", portrait, 1200* 1600, Snow leopard, Firefox or Safari, latest versions, if I zoom out a bit... I can still easily read the text here in the edit box, but it is a bit of a strain in the "topic summary" below, using 61 year old eyes @ arm's length, with less strong glasses than I normally use for reading.

I'm using standard font size, but even when zooming out to the max (view/zoom/"zoom text only" checked, that may well be the point), it's messy but not too narrow at 1280px wide.

and lines separating the posts.

Thanks for the lines, Mark. They could even be darker for my eyes, but the current lines are a big improvement.

Yep....

okokok, good you nipped it in the bud...

question : Is it possible to 'bookmark' a thread? often, I'd like to keep track of a thread but don't necessarily want an email for each reply to it (and may not have anything to add of interest either) but until now I might add a comment to kinda faux bookmark it...I wonder if your new fab forum software has this capability, and then of course a place where i can go to look at my bookmarks...is it here, did i miss it?...

thanks...

Please read the New Forum Tips post (or the info previously in this thread), it tells you how to find that.

Mark, regardless of how I login, or what "remember me" or time settings I use, I am still being prompted to login every time I open LuLa.

Have you checked off the "Always stay logged in" box on the Login Page ?  (if you try that right now make sure you log out first or it won't work)

If you have and that still doesn't work it sounds like it might be a cookie problem, try clearing any local cookies that you have for this domain in your browser and login again, making sure to check that box.

Viewing pictures

When I critique a picture, I like to put the text browser on the Mac book pro, and the picture on the Eizo...(using "open in separate window")

It seems to me that this is now only easy if it is an image uploaded into LuLa, and not if it is a linked in image.

...how can I quickly and easily get a zoom-able linked picture in a separate window?

You can:
Click on the image,
click on view image info
click on save
click on the file
view it in preview (mac/snow leopard)
I have done this with Keith Laban's "bed" an it looks OK.

¿any other options?

You could click and drag the image to your desktop (or other folder) and then double click it to open in preview .. there's probably not a faster way than that (or right click and 'save as' then open it in preview)

Click-and-drag-to-folder works, drag to desktop hides it under other stuff on the desktop - I found them later. (Firefox/snow leopard)
