You do realize there is an "Expand" function right?
Actually, no, I was not aware of that :)
I still think it should expand a little bit more by default, but maybe that's just me. If you can just fix the line-height, I can manage with the expand function

Line height has been changed. You may need to do a hard refresh or clear your cache.

You may have missed the end of what I wrote since I edited my post while you were replying
Also, it seems to be inheriting the line-height from another class (.post-body or something like that), so it's currently at 1.4em and not really a big difference from before.
I'm still getting a line-height of 1.4em

That's what I get for pulling the attribute rather than explicitly setting it. It is now set to 1.0em.

Just noticed this, for windows users..

When downloading the code (using the supplied download link) a .txt file is downloaded. The default program for opening text files on windows is notepad. Linebreaks are not registering.. so they must be \n instead of \r\n.

Mangles the code.

After careful research, I have discovered that the best solution to this issue is to use a real operating system. :twisted:

Yes, or failing that, wordpad, notepad++, etc...

The truth is it should be coded for the most common case scenario. Sadly, that is Notepad running on Windows. We need to fix this. Just need to figure out how.

What I wanna know is why the only language choice is British English? Remember, we won the Revolutionary War a long time ago!!

Could we change the name to be an RTF file? That'll open in Wordpad.
Real programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

It would be convenient to have the "View active topics" to the left or right of "View your posts".
