I don't see a way to make the forum software increase the font size when viewing a thread, but if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can increase the font size by clicking in the lower right corner of the browser window to change the % indicated (Should be 100% by default). It will increase by 25% each time you click it, up to 150% then it reverts to 100% again. You can also click the tiny downward pointing triangle to the right of the "%" to get a menu of other magnification values.

Normally, this function increases the size of the whole page, often causing the user to need to scroll the page left and right to see everything, but on this page, it just changes the font size and keeps the text box the same size.

With Winders I use ctrl and + at the same time to enlarge, to shrink; ctrl - at same time.
No 'shift' necessary with + ...
I use Firefox as my browser, the above works with it too.

On an apple comupter with any browser, hit command (clover) and + at the same time. No shift necessary to get the + (which is also the = sign).
