font size adjustments?

Post by Chaotic Evil Funtime »

henlo, forum newbie here! :D

is there an option to change the font display size for the forums? i'm not too keen on changing the browser zoom, as it throws off all the formatting when i browse. thank you!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

There is not currently a way to do it, but it is something I am acutely aware of it needing. I took over the curatorship half a year or so ago, so most of what you see here is legacy and out of my control. I will look into the possibility of a module once more, but in the meantime the CTRL+Scroll Wheel enlarging of the entire GUI is your best best. It will only affect the tab you are in and these text-based pages shouldn't change the look much at all at bigger zoom levels.

hi bifford, thanks for taking a peek. i understand that legacy is legacy, and there's only so much you can do (i've been on that end of code myself). i appreciate it, and if it doesnt work out, then it is what it is.

Hello there!

I found a plugin which works :)

1. Go to your User Control Panel by clicking on your username top right, by your avatar.

2. Under "Board Preferences" change "Would you prefer the font to be larger?" to "Yes" and a value, for a general font size change. Change "Would you prefer a different font size for mobile devices?" to "Yes" and a value for your phone browsing. You can also set all fonts to Bold. Press "Submit" to save the changes.

This is an example of the fonts being changed to 150%. You will notice that all text on the site is larger but the logo is not.
