Fonts small and bold are unreadable

Hi Mannix,
I like your Hexagon template but something is almost impossible to read because of the too small and bold font. :?

Is it possible to change it?

Thank you in advance for your help.

You can try this extension for the font size https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... arge_font/
To change the font style from bold to normal you would have add normal version of Roboto font and then adjust the font style in the css files with the usage of the inspect element of your browser to see what you wanna change and where to change it.

To add a font you need to place the font file in the theme/fonts/roboto/FONTNAME.ttf (example:Roboto-Regular.ttf) and then add the code found belowe to the roboto.css file in theme/fonts/roboto/css/ folder

Code: Select all

@font-face {
    font-family: 'FONTNAME';
    src: url('../fonts/FONTNAME.ttf');

    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
}

Hello Mannix, thank you for your help. :)

The right directory where to put a file.ttf is theme/fonts/roboto/FONTNAME.ttf (example:Roboto-Regular.ttf)
or
theme/fonts/roboto/fonts/FONTNAME.ttf (example:Roboto-Regular.ttf)?

I have tried two alternatives fonts: Roboto.Regular and Roboto.Medium, now is much better then Bold, but I can't see the difference between the last two.

Later I will check the extension.

Regards

this one, there is already file for a bold version of that font (Roboto-Bold.ttf)
For the font size you need to do the same as with the font style
adjust the font style in the css files with the usage of the inspect element of your browser to see what you wanna change and where to change it.
You can also ask the author of that extensions if it's possible to do the way you want it.

What exactly I have to change in this file roboto.css?

Code: Select all

@font-face {
    font-family: 'Roboto.medium';
    src: url('../fonts/Roboto.medium.ttf');

    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
}

Nothing just add your font below the same way the bold one is.

Done!

I'm asking for setting the dimension of 110% for everybody and without the extension Large font.
Is it possible to do it? If yes, how exactly?

You need to be more specific which part of the you want the font to be bigger for example if you want make the font larger for Category tittles you need to open content.css and find li.header dt, li.header dd block and change the font-size to whatever size you want. I don't know exactly which parts you want to make bigger so I can't help you without that information. If you don't want to wait for my response use Inspect element feature of your browser if you don't know what it is and how to use it read this viewtopic.php?f=591&t=2426201 it may help you.

If you use that extension you should ask the author of that extension to help you I can't.
