I'm not blind or anything but I don't sit hunched over the monitor and this font size is really annoying. Can somebody enable the users to change their own font size on the board?

I found this fix at the Vbulletin forum but an Admin needs to do it: Font Fix (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=118679)

I'm sure I'm not the only one having issues with this.

The font doesn't bother me that much. I didn't even notice it was smaller until other people mentioned it. It must just bug the old people.:D

I'm sure it does but it also bugs those of us with multiple monitors who work at a distance.

Its a pain, but I just highlight the text and click sizes and use #2.

There's got to be a way to let users set their own preference for a session without going through all that.

Didn't we go through this about two years ago when CU updated? Everybody just got used to it.

I will talk to Krusty the Klown and see what I can do to get font size bumped higher up on the "to do" list.

Thanks! My link goes to a vBulletin fix that seems to let each of us configure the fonts as needed. That way people who aren't bothered by the current font size won't see any changes. :)

This is what I am seeing.. I have to scroll over to even read entire threads. And the font size is way way too small. The black area on the left takes up too much space on my screen.

Hold down the "Ctrl" key and scroll your mouse wheel.

It will adjust the size of the webpage you are looking at.

Could someone please make the fonts SMALLER?

I use a scanning electron microscopes to read with and this new giant font is perfectly legible. Even better is that I don't have to squint.

Thank You, Thank You! What a difference - no more squinting! :cool: :D

It's frustrating being 'puter illiterate. :confused: ;)

Has the font size problem been fixed...or have I just gotten used to it?

Oh wow.. it looks better to me too. But now the ads keep me from clicking on "new posts".
