Change Font Style + Size Of Posting

Post by Lownoise » Thu Mar 15, 2018 10:51 am

Hi folks!

Does anybody know how I change the font style + size for posting? I find it a bit too small now and I also don't like the font type. I would like to change it for everybody so the font size extention won't help because this way the member has to change it themselfs.

And yes I know there are several hits topics and hits on Google with the same question, but they all say something else! :oops: I only want to change the font style and size for posting.

Thanks in advance! :D

That would be a question for styles support.

The annoying thing of the style support is that they never answer. :|

My "Large Font" extension does (as you rightly say) allow the user to choose the font size they prefer. However, if you would like to set a larger size for all users, who can then 'de select' that size should they so wish, let me know. Its a simple change.

The font size extension changes all fonts of the forums, i rather only want the posting/topic font to change.

Incidentally, most (all?) modern browsers have font size + and -, you could educate your members to use the browser controls.

The style that I use is "Rock 'n Roll". But as I said, the author doesn't answer.

The author of that style is a very active member of this board and if he has not answered then just maybe he has a life outside of this site and has not noticed your post yet. Remember that members of this board not only live in different time zones but also have jobs where they cannot, or are unable to, access this board at all times.

Oh yes, don't get me wrong, i have muchos respect for the author, without him I did not manage to setup the style that I want, but I thought maybe there was a standard procedure to change the font of a phpBB forum. Sorry did not want to harm anyone here ;)

if not, please be more specific

Yes indeed when you are typing the post and when it's typed.. so when the post is done..

@ forms.css line: 260 works indeed. It's changed. Now I would like this same font type + size when the post is done. So when you view a post. I hope you understand what I mean. So the text where you are looking at now, can I be more specific? :lol:

content.css line 271
that will change the font size of the post when viewed like you are doing right now. to change the font family would change it for all of the content so changing it will affect a lot more than just the post content.
you would have to create a whole new css rule for just the post content.
why is it so small for you and not for the other thousands of people that use the default size etc.?

Thank you very much Lumpy! It works.. Pff dunno, I just found it a bit too small. When I checked out other forums (not all phpBB related) but different software probably, they had a much better readable and cleaner font + size. It's personaly I guess..
