Hello everyone. The problem seems to be caused by Chrome 31.0.1650.57, in conjunction with Windows 7!

Thanks to dovefromabove and GarethW for the Support Details submission - very helpful.

If anyone else is experiencing the problem with enlarged or reduced text, I suggest trying a different browser until either Google or our developers find a permanent fix!

I'm sorry for this - it's very strange. I can't replicate the problem on my machine, so I'm guessing it must be caused by a particular combination of browser and operating system. In order that the techies can help, we'll need to gather a few details about your system, so they can attempt to replicate the issue before finding a solution.

It would be very helpful if you could visit the following site, and just input your name and email address where prompted and also our email address (website@gardenersworld.com) in the ‘Recipient’s email’ in the fields at the top of the page:

http://supportdetails.com/

The site automatically detects your browser and operating system – you don’t need to add any technical details yourself. All very quick and easy.

If you can send us that then we’ll do our best to resolve the problem for you.

Many thanks,

Reply to jatnikapyar: I'm afraid I haven't had any private messages from you!

So, I'm not immune from the problems with the messaging tool at the moment! It seems to be working erratically - some messages get through, some don't. As posted on another thread, I'm expecting an update today on the work to correct this problem, so I'll post an update as soon as I know something.

If anybody else has private messaged me and not received a response, I'm not ignoring you, it just won't have been delivered.

Until we have a resolution, I'd suggest emailing website@gardenersworld.com if you need to get in touch with us.

Hello Pete8,

I'm sorry the notifications aren't working for you. I'll drop you a quick email, to get a few details about your system (browser, operating system etc), so our tech team can look into this for you.

Not to worry, KEF!

Reply to star gaze lily: sorry about this. The issues with the private messages are still being worked on and I hope the fix will be live on the site shortly. I'll chase this up again with the team tomorrow.

Hello KEF,

Do you mean Internet Explorer, rather than Outlook Express? The avatar upload problem was a bug with Internet Explorer version 8, for which a fix has now been implemented. You should now be able to upload an avatar. If not, please let me know, and we can have someone investigate further.

Daniel
