The Large Font extension may work for you. :)

You could, of course, use the zoom controls of the browser.

If you want to edit the file then it would be:
styles/prosilver/theme/common.css

FIND:

Code: Select all

body {
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
	font-size: 10px;
	line-height: normal;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 12px 0;
	word-wrap: break-word;
	-webkit-print-color-adjust: exact;
}
Change font-size: 10px; to what ever you would like.

Thanks

Would doing this also change the font size on a mobile screen when the forum adjusts to it using its responsive feature? If not how do I increase the font size on a mobile screen?

I’d say, best way is to try it out.
It is 1 little edit, worst comes to worst, you put it back to the value it use to be or re upload the backup file you saved before editing the file.

Thanks

Ok I did it. I changed the font size as instructed above from 10px to 11px. It increased the text size a little but it also made the category and topic titles bigger as well. Why? How? See here:

As you can see the topic titles are unusually large. How did that happen? I thought changing the font size above only applied to the body text?

You asked to increase ALL the font size.

Check this, should still work for 3.1:
viewtopic.php?f=591&t=2426201#p14755731

Well the OP did. I only wanted to changed the font size of the body text in posts. lol

I didn't know changing that one thing would apply to all font sizes. It looked like it would only apply to the body text since it was in a section marked as "body".

Maybe I'll just use the large font extension instead.

Btw those instructions in your link are way too complicated. When I right click and select Inspect, I get these boxes that come up that look way too technical for a layperson to figure out. From there, I don't know what is what. It looks like a jumble of numbers and boxes with no coherent sense. Not user friendly at all. That's one of the worst ways to try to figure out which css code does what. I studied it a number of times and nothing is clear there.

And that's exactly why we always ask people to start their own topics for their own questions so there's no confusion.
