Site help

The site has been designed to work with all modern browsers. It has been tested for compatibility and consistency with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Internet Explorer.

The site at full-size is designed to fit into a browser window 1024 pixels wide. When viewing the site on a smaller window or device, the site is designed to scale downwards to fit. On a small mobile or tablet screen, the navigation and search features will condense into a set of menus at the top of the site to improve the readability of the page's content.

Adjusting text size

This site is designed to adjust and adapt to your preferred text size. If you are experiencing difficulty with text size on this site, you can adjust this through your browser settings.

Internet Explorer 7 and 8:

  • Open the "Page" drop-down box from the top toolbar and highlight "Text Size".
  • Select the text size you require, ranging from Smallest to Largest.

Internet Explorer 9 and 10:

  • Open the tools (cog icon) menu button on the top-right of your screen and then highlight "Zoom".
  • Select your desired zoom level.

Mozilla Firefox:

  • Go to the View menu (press and hold "Alt" if you don't see any menus) and highlight "Zoom"
  • Click either "Zoom In" or "Zoom Out" to adjust the text size accordingly.

Alternatively if you use a mouse with a scroll wheel, you can adjust browser text size by positioning the mouse over the page content, holding the "Ctrl" key and scrolling up or down.

If you need to reset the text settings to the browser defaults, you can follow through the instructions given above and select to reset to the default setting. e.g. "Reset" in Firefox; "Medium" in IE7/8; "100%" in IE9/10.

  • Switch to the "Privacy" tab.
  • Locate the "Pop-up blocker" section and click "Settings...".
  • Type the following address in the "Address of website to allow" field: *.marrickville.nsw.gov.au
  • Click "Add" (or "Allow" in older versions), and then close out of the options menus.

Mozilla Firefox:

  • Go to the Tools menu (press and hold "Alt" if you don't see any menus) and select "Options".
  • Switch to the "Content" tab, locate the "Block popup windows" option and select the "Exceptions..." button next to it.

  • Click "Allow" and then close out of the options menus.
