Can you change the size of the text in the forum. ( Make the text bigger.)
If you are asking that on the server side here we enlarge the text for everyone, then I'm sorry, but no. The spacing and everything here is standard baseline vBulletin defaults. However, with the right browser, you can change the size of the text you see. I'm not sure IE allows text size changes here because of how it implements CSS, however, Firefox can change the size of text displayed using its: View menu > Text Size > Increase or Decrease options.
Thanks for the info.
LWM, in IE7 there is an option to change text size but it doesn't work properly in this forum. In the example below, only one line in BC's sig got larger. An alternative would be to use the Zoom feature but you have to do some horizontal scrolling to read the posts, lol.
IE6 has the same Text Size feature, as well, however, it doesn't work because of how IE implements style sheets. It will not override the text characteristics in certain blocks. Signatures, yes, main post or PM text, no. Firefox does all the text the same. Opera probably does, too, but, I haven't tested it.
IN OPERA THE TEXT RESIZE WORKS JUST FINE
FF has an additional extension where you can click a + or - to change the text size nicely in the forum.
Both IE and FF (and I think Opera also) can use the feature: CTRLT+SCROLL UP / SCROLL DOWN.
The only condition is you need a mouse with a scroll wheel but I think almost everyone has one of those, these days.
Good info for sore eyes.
Since it hasnt been mentioned, Firefox users might be interested in No Squint. Its lets you remember the text size on a per-site basis.
Won't use it but looks interesting!
I am at
120% am I am wondering if it will affect post size.
So far OK; I thought that it will force scrolling (in which case I would turn it off).
Is the bigger size only on my side or is it apparent to members?
It only for you.
Good to know that the post was A-OK: thanks for the confirmation-- cortez
