How to increase font size of body text in posts in desktop and mobile responsive theme?

Post by WWu777 » Sun Dec 03, 2017 12:46 am

Dear support,
How do I increase the font size in the body text of posts? Which css file in the theme folder and which codes?

I would like to do this for the body text of posts in the Prosilver theme. But not just for the desktop theme. I'd like to increase font size for mobile screens too when the forum becomes responsive and adapts to the smaller screen, because the default size on the mobile screen seems too small.

Does changing the font size in the desktop theme automatically increase the font size in the text of the mobile responsive output as well? I mean the output when the forum adjusts to the mobile screen. Or do you have to change one of the responsive files to increase the font size on mobile screens too?

Hope I explained this clearly.

Thanks in advance.

Most (all?) modern browsers allow you to change the font size anf this, in my opinion, should be something that individual users change if they need to. To my mind there is nothing worse than seeing large text on any website.
