At the start of the page, post text is 15px in size, which slowly shrinks down to 9px in size.

Found the problem anyway, it is this guys signature that messes the page up & all others with posts on it.

I would say it is down to the test being done on signature lengths, and has been truncated.

Confirm seeing this with Chrome.

I do not know for sure but it seems to happen after (but not all) posts of fuh,
there is a broken image in his / her signature and that could be related to the cause,

<Thinking out loud>
If there is a dangling font scaling of 95% then after e.g 2 steps fontsize has decreased enough to effectively decrease from 15 to 14 points. (no html/css expert).

So, does this only happen in the signature?



Apparently so.

Have a look at "blink without delay".

Its not a bb tag causing the problem. His signature has been truncated leaving a half finished piece of HTML, also robtillaart is right, everything below inherits the styles of the unclosed element, the link I posted is so dramatic because he posts like 6 times on the one page.

This is what will happen to many other signatures including mine if they truncate them all to 150 chars.

146 chars for this sig:

width:0" src="ht</div>


As my browser shows, the sigs are normally smaller in font size, and the highlight above shows the closing div for the signature in a string, so it is skipped. Each time the dude posts, the text is lowered that little bit more.

As a website owner myself I can see that this is a terrible position to be in. For example one could exploit the shortened signature to inject a Javascript causing everyone to give false karma to the attacker, not to mention wreak absoulte havoc on the site using reputable logins

Fixed, thanks for the hint.

Fixed, thanks for the hint.


So if you are able to manage things at that level, can you at least explain to us the considerably more troubling problem of the spurious "redirects" and the URL mangling to add the useless "token" parameter which render the whole system useless from time to time?
