    Bigger buttons

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who is left using the non dominant hand. Larger targets would make this a much easier and less stressful experience. Just saying. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜€xx

        matthew55 Hey, I found this post Admin_MND made on 7th September 2020, when you previously asked for "bigger buttons":

        We have an outstanding ticket in with vBulletin to try and find a way of increasing the button sizes and we have explained the accessibility issue this is having for our members.

        Unfortunately so far, they haven't came up with anything we can implement but we will continue to push this and will update you all as soon as we have something to share.

        Thanks,

        Forum Admin

          This forum is so difficult to work with that I have almost given up.

            Hi all,

            Thanks for bringing this topic up again. We do constantly keep the forum under review to try and develop and bring in new and improved features when possible, however as Ellie has mentioned, we are limited to the software that vBulletin provides and despite us raising the question, they don't have an answer or update to the software yet. We have looked into other forum software too and unfortunately it's a common situation that buttons are small and don't always cater for all accessibility issues.

            We will keep it on our radar though but in the meantime, can only suggest using Ctrl + on your keyboard to zoom in to make the buttons larger that way.

            Forum Admin.

                  Well, at first i thought you were talking about shirt buttons, then i thought it was about computer buttons. I am pretty certain the computer version can be found, and for button, bigger holes need a button hook. Tiny button holes, not fouind anything yet.

                  Have i covered all the bases?
