Nice style...but how can I...

Very nice style, but some of the bold fonts are a little scrunched together such as the poster's name, "board index" etc.
How can I adjust these?
Thanks!

If i understand you correctly you want more space between letters in a word yes ? Like that ?

If that's what you are asking you need to add

Code: Select all

    letter-spacing: 1px;
(the pixel value is up to you deiced) code into css files that are responsible for the part of the text you want to apply that too. You can use inspect element in your browser to determine the files that need to be edited. For example poster name is located in links.css

Code: Select all

.postprofile a, .postprofile dt.author a {
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: none;
}

I agree with the OP. I too like this style, but I find the fonts to be a bit blurry due for being bold and you can see it for yourself on my forum.

Yes, guests can change a style if anyone wants to do that.

Just a quick question. If I change this piece of the code.

Code: Select all

.postprofile a, .postprofile dt.author a {
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: none;
}
Can I change the font-weight: bold; to font-weight: ; or do I need remove the font-weight: bold; entirely?

You can remove it as it's doesn't doing anything since the font i bold already. It's just a leftover from the prosilver I didn't bother to remove since it doesn't conflict with anything

I see. I would like to know about how to change the font since it's bold. How do I change the font to a *non-bold* font?

First you would have to download standard Roboto font and place it in the theme/fonts/roboto/fonts folder then open roboto.css in the theme/fonts/roboto/css and add the standard one the same way the bold one is. Then you need to locate what you want to be normal weight and change

Code: Select all

font-family: Roboto-bold, Arial;
to

Code: Select all

font-family: Roboto, Arial;
in the theme css file
