Login user name defaults to email address

Post by John Gray »

Rather confusing since some boards use the email address as the user name!

And the Captcha is Jolly Difficult! I had to have three goes at it.

Any alternative fonts, or have I just missed them?!

Hi John, welcome here!

Do you mean a different font for the captcha? We have a limited set of captcha choices, so I could try a different one.

(I think the default one is difficult since there are spambots that can handle the easy ones...)
Best wishes,
Hans

Hi Hans

What a surprise to find you here! :clapping:
No, the CAPTCHA probably has to be difficult to avoid the robots, but I meant alternative fonts like were useful for one's signature - Script or Monotype Corsiva.
I suspect [ code] uses Courier New...

Er, :blush:

There was no way to specify a font, but there is now. I've added a font tag:
x.png
[font=Comic Sans MS]Funny text, isn't it?[/font]

results in

Funny text, isn't it?

Unfortunately, you have to enter the name of the font yourself, there's no dropdown list (yet).

I think it uses whatever has been specified as the monospace font in your browser, which will usually be Courier New (at least on Windows).

They're simply the smilies from the old Woody's Lounge, but a few are missing in action, such as skitterbug's favorite coffeetime. And the popup window that you get if you click 'View more smilies' is a bit disorganized. Mike will work on that when he has time.

I've been tinkering with that bit, and it appears you can use any font installed on your PC. My signature name is currently set to Edwardian Script ITC - do others see that font?

Hi Wendell,

Welcome!

I do see that font, but I'm not sure what happens if you're using a Mac.
Best wishes,
Hans

I see it, but this may be because I also have that font installed.

I would imagine that a Mac would make a substitution of whatever font it thinks is closest to the "Windows original" font.

And with those script fonts, it is necessary to crank up the 'size' to maximum=huge. Like I have had to do for my name, in Monotype Corsiva, below.

This is exactly what will happen if a certain font isn't on the MAC.
It took me a few minutes, but I did find the "Font Book" app. which does show that Wendell's font choice is available on this MAC. :yep: So no substitute font was necessary for my viewing! :grin:

And there was me thinking that the major problem with Linux was that it didn't actually have any fonts, and thus had to use the "Microsoft TrueType Core Fonts for the Web" package! :brainwash:
