Requirement : Recent or sufficiently fast computer with fast internet connection.

= Issues =
* If it appears loading slow then that's probably because either the Forum server is slow or the linked images are coming from slow servers (e.g. photobucket images load slow). Normally it loads just fine.

* If having issues than use google chrome port of Forum Preview until the issue is fixed.
* If after update Font Size becomes huge then go to Settings click '-' font size and reload page.

* Might not work well on heavily customized forums.
