Title: Changing default font sizes when writing posts
Post by: Michael on November 24, 2015, 02:48:07 pm
Hello,


I'm a member of a forum where it seems that many or most members, myself included, have somewhat less than perfect eyesight. As a result most members change the font size in all their posts to 12px or 14px rather than the standard default of 10px.


We'd like to change the default font size in posts to 12px so that members don't have to do this manually every time.


In searching around the internet I found a proposed solution which was to add a font-size=12px in the style css file inside the .inner tag.  This did not work.


Is there a way to set the default text size to 12px for posts?


Thanks for your help,


Mike

Admin -> Manage Styles then edit the default style to change the css.
It is in the body tag css you have to change the percent values I believe.
Code: [Select]
body {
    background: #e9eef2 url("http://cdn.smfboards.com/caf/images/theme/backdrop.png") repeat-x scroll 0 0;
    font: 78%/130% Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 15px 0;
}

Thank you.


Will that change the font size of just the posts or for everthing in the body?


We don't need, for example, the user names to be any bigger.

I believe it will do everything. You might be able to target just the post area with css but I do not know how to do so as I am not a CSS expert.
