Earlier in this thread are posts discussing how to put up images and videos, which are a little different than Yuku. For example, this place only allows YouTube videos I think.

Hi everyone and good luck in 2017! We're going to need it to survive the insane asylum that is the Republican Party.
Some words of wisdom about Runboard: if you want to keep your real name hidden, be careful how you post images. If you use a site like Photobucket that you registered with your real name, the information is visible in the right click info for any image from there. Since there are some very dangerous people wandering the internet, I suggest anonymity at all times. Set up a photo site membership under a fictitious name to place your images on, then link to them here.

I've ramped up the font size, but still can barely read the posts, and the Forum page itself only takes up about 2/3 for the screen.

To increase the size of everything (text and images) on a page:

Keyboard

Hold the "Ctrl" key and press the "+" key to zoom in (press "-" to zoom out) or
Mouse

Open the "View" menu, select "Zoom," and then select "Zoom In", or
If you have a mouse with a wheel, hold the "Ctrl" key on the keyboard and then scroll the wheel up to zoom in (scroll down to zoom out)

But of course one can also always decrease the whole screen resolution. That will make everything on the screen larger, but also videos will look rougher.

I don't really know, but it appears that Runboard relies heavily on Cascading Style Sheets, (CSS).
If you are unfamiliar with CSS, they are an addition to html about a decade ago, that allow formats to be defined in detail, and they referred to by name, so that it is easier to maintain a consistent set of templates.

Here is something I found in response to a question about how the font size could be increased.

{...
You change the font size in the CSS section of the control panel.

1) Click on "Control Panel" ([sign in to see URL])
2) Find: You have special access to these boards: *
* If you only have one board, then it will be the only one on the list. If you have more than one board, select the board you want to set up.
3) Click "Manage"
4) Find & Click on "Edit Layout / Colors of Your Board"
5) Find & Click on "Manage Custom Style Sheet (CSS)"
6) If you know what you're doing, then you need no further help. But, if you're like me, and don't know enough about CSS to make the changes yourself, you will need to wait on Lesa or Pastor Rick to give you further instructions.
...
Crogin, the fastest way would be to paste all of your CSS (follow the path that Jox gave you) into Notepad (Notepad++ would actually be faster, because it would replace them all at once, but regular Notepad is already installed on your computer if you use Windows), then use Ctrl+H to find and replace the following text:

Change:
font-size:10px
to:
font-size:12px
(31 occurrences)

Change:
font-size:9px
to:
font-size:11px
(1 occurrence)

Feel free to use an even bigger font size than 12px and 11px. There might be some text that's left unchanged, in which case Pastor Rick or I can look at the class names for the ones that are still too small.


Edit to add: If you'd like, I can do this for you. I'll be online for a few hours tonight, but my next opportunity to do it will be about 24 hours from now.
...}

This last part was from the top person:

{...
Lesigner Girl
Global Administrator
Global user (premium)
Head of Runboard staff
...}

Here is the link to where I read it:

So I could post a question there I think, which could be to get detailed instructions, or it is likely they would be willing to do it for you since it is so easy for them.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


I see a table is used for the list of topics:

{...
<table cellspacing="1" class="topic_list_table" width="100%" border="0" bordercolor="#ffffff"><tbody>
...}

The class, "topic_list_table" is what one would look for in the CSS file.

Just to be sure I understand correctly, the idea is to increase the number of topics you see on each page?
Right now I think it is 21, and there are 5 pages you can select from.
If it were increased to 40, then one would only need to choose between 3 pages of topics, so they would not be forgotten as quickly?

Our old board managed to have many more threads on the main page. I wonder if that is possible here. I looked for something in controls but couldn't find anything but I'am no computer whiz.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


I put in a feature request.
I added a link to our discussion, so they will see what you want, and that it is you who want it.
We will see if they just tell us how to do it, or do it for us, or tell us it can't be done?
If they just tell us how, then I may need moderator privileges again in order to do it.
Depends on how they reply.

What you are describing is part of Premium Board membership. See here for more details.

#2
{...

Control Panel :: Board Managment :: Set Misc Options/Set Misc Board Options


Scroll down to:

How many topics to display per page (premium boards only).
Min: 1, max: 50, 0 = default (20) [___]

How many posts to display per page (premium boards only).
Min: 1, max: 30, 0 = default (10) [___]

...}


But I did not see how much a premium board costs?
If it is not much, I could contribute.

Here is their response:

{...

When upgrading a community to premium, you will buy a credit of premium page views. The base unit is 100 000 page views, and this costs 25 dollars US, or 25 euros. All purchases must be multiples of 100 000 page views. An average board will only need to purchase one base unit per year or two. A busy board will of course eat through these credits much more quickly - all depends on the traffic to your board.
...
How long premium credits last is affected by your settings. You can make them last longer by having logged out viewers see advertising.
...}

Seems like less than $25/year is not a bad deal. And it does not seem onerous to make people login to avoid advertising. I always login anyway.

Both of us paid more than that to get rid of ads on our old board and they promised it was free. I don't think we should be paying for something that supposed to be free. We can manage the way things are now but I really appreciate your help Rigby. I will return you to your membership status. Thanks again.

I already used the credit card and got $25 worth of premium. But it did not appear to be instantaneous. I changed the setting to 40, but I don't see 40 yet. Try again in a day or 2 if it does not expand. Also advertising is supposed to go away I think?
I thought it was worth it because they implied it could last for several years, not just one.

Re: Learning our way around this board:


Quick question:

I've noticed that posts are stamped with what must be the time from a different time zone. Some posts seem to be 3 hours ahead.

Anyone know if I can change that? I've not found any settings.

If instead of Canada for location, you could have put in the time zone. Then it would be easy to calculate absolute posting time.
For example, I just put in Mountain Time for my location. And you could still leave in Canada, but add "EDT", (Eastern Daylight Time),
