I would like to ask Qube if he could increased the default code font size by one or even two sizes, as it's smaller than the custom syntax highlighted ones.
I'll try and get that sorted today along with either a download link for code or at least an option to just copy the code ready for pasting :)
Until the next time...

After some more testing:  In MS's Edge browser it's all fine, not copying line numbers.  :o

So appears is browser related as markcwm also said it's fine in Firefox.

Tomorrow I'll try on another win10 laptop to see if is system related also.

I've had a go at editing the PHP GeSHi code which creates the syntax highlighting + integration in the forums. An addition to highlight the code also highlighted the line numbers too. Freakily, removing the line numbers removed the code box background and I don't know why. I will look into this stupid issue more over the coming days.
Until the next time...

is it possible to have part of forum dedicated for hardware programming (Arduino, PIC's and so on), tools for it and stuff like that ??

I agree. I would like to have this also. ;D

Sure. Do you want me to just add a hardware programming section or are there specific sub categories you want in there? ( providing they get used :) )

I don't know, I think it would create pressure to try and get likes.
All social media does this, so why not be different? :)

Nah, I quite like the idea of a like - it's just a quick way of agreeing, that's all.

Hey that's just what I was thinking about! Was gonna say would be nice to have, so more recognizable in the browser's Favorites Bar.

I think the below icon is nice, but the 'B' could be omitted, as the icon is a bomb already, so imho a bomb with a letter 'S' upon it(or something else) would suffice. But anything goes..

@therevills - Looks good to me, thanks :)

Converted to favicon.ico and uploaded. It shows up on Chrome fine. I hope there's nothing else fancy I have to do?

Typical... I knew there would be more to it than just the .ico file. Bloody MS always doing things their own way. Will look at this in a day or two :)
