  • "Save" not working in Profile>Content>FontSize

    A comment that I have seen twice is the text is too small. I agree. I found where and how to change it, but the SAVE button is not working:

    IN a post, I click on my name
    Go to Profile and click
    >Customize MY STYLE
    Look above my avatar/name
    >click on CONTENT
    > Click on TEXT
    >Click on FONT SIZE
    (For me I tried medium and large)
    GO to the Bar above the "CONTENT" bar and on the right side are the words: REVERT, Don't save? and SAVE.

    "SAVE" isn't working for me on this level. Tried it in two different browsers.

    IF it were working, I think this would be the item that helped us old folks the most.

    I apologize for overloading you. You have done a great job!

    If people don't tell me about it, I can't fix it. I'd much rather have the feedback than to have people be quietly irritated.

    I'll add it to the list

      Bad and worse news on this one. I wasn't able to get it to work, and I tested it at the VB support site. There it lets you click save, but doesn't actually save. Further, it only adjusts the font size on your profile screen, not the entire site. Once I get the development site update I'll work on a different solution for font sizes.

          Hank,

          Try the style SawdustZone+ It is identical to the Sawdustzone with the font sizes increased a bit.

            SawdustZone+ does increase the size, but only on that page. It doesn't affect normal SDZ browsing on different pages. This is in my initial side by side tests. I will check some more during the day.

            EDITED: "SAWDUSTZONE+ does work." I didn't "Save" it on the first TRY!

            CONTRL++ doesn't work on Safari, but Command+ does. However, it is global to Safari, which causes all websites' text to be large. SDZ default font size seems to be a tad smaller, OR it could be the specific Default Font. Some fonts are smaller than others on the same size. This is Verdana. It is larger than the default Arial. (CHANGED back to Arial after finding that SawdustZone+ works).

            The Default font does make some difference. It must be "saved" to apply.


            EDIT in Later: This works in most places on most posts for me. HOWEVER, The Front HOME page is still small. Older people with reading problems will have difficulty in reading the Home Page where it says "Fourms, Latest Activity, My Subscriptions", Then down below under "Discussions" The "Forums" description on the left is very small font, as is the fonts under "Topic, Post, Last Post". This seems like it might be a "system" controlled font, not a user controlled font.
            I am trying testing something, will get back

              If you are using a Mac, Firefox lets you change sizes on a site by site basis. I adjusted the easy fonts last night, the others will require more work.

                Forum User Settings change most everything but the Home Page as noted in my previous post. I went to Safari preferences and clicked on nothing smaller than 12, I noted that on the Home Page under "Last Post" the date and time SIZE are controlled by the Web Browser. Elsewhere, some font sizes are controlled by the Browser and some by the User Settings. Just not the Home Page Forum descriptions.

                I have enough understanding now to help a little if someone asks about the small sizes. Go fry some bigger fish!
