Is there a reason why (in General)

Soxjr July 22 2008 2:04 PM EDT

The opponents name and my active char name box font is so small now? I went to manually change the font size and it changes everything to the point that the other type is huge and the drop down box type where my favorites list is and my active char list is is so small I can barely read it. Please for all us old people can we please change that back. Thanks

Yeah, it got small when the themes were put back to default (with no choice for others, the same time the big blue stripe of informative death came across the top.

CTRL-+ does make things bigger, but for whatever reason the dropdown lists in the left pane are smaller than everything else/ I don't know enough about CSS, etc. to know why that is...? If it were simply as big as the links around it, it would be fine...

Oops, my fault. Fixed, just gotta wait for Jon to upload the CSS =P

Soxjr July 22 2008 2:55 PM EDT

Thanks for the quick fix Pixel

Hey that rhymed.

Anyways, I was cleaning up hold CSS code. Apparently they took my CSS from way back when, and just added stuff to it, without deleting the large amount of code they didn't use. So I deleted those, reorganized it, and combined some similar styles. The small text was used in equip drop-down lists, so I figured if you guys could read the text there, you'd be able to read it in the sidebar drop-downs. Guess it just made things harder to read =P

Mine has been the opposite all day. It went really large...

Boasting again JW? ;)

Drop down for active character and opponents have both gone large font. Everything else is normal. But it means that the drop down for opponents now goes over the edge of the left hand frame.

QBPixel Sage July 22 2008 9:02 PM EDT

What browser? Screenie?

Soxjr July 22 2008 9:19 PM EDT

see. mine is still small. so either the changes didn't go thru yet, and i'll just keep waiting. or i really need to go to the eye doctor. I'm using IE and it's the drop down menu for friends list and my active characters in the left pane main window.

Sacredpeanut July 22 2008 9:24 PM EDT

My drop-downs have gone bigger again (FF3), but I'm not seeing the opponents drop-down going over the left hand frame.

Lord Bob July 22 2008 10:14 PM EDT

I kind of liked the new small font...

[RX3]Cotillion July 22 2008 10:14 PM EDT

Thought I'd ask it here just because it has to do with the themes I guess...

On the Equip page, is there any way that we can see our items NW's as default where it now displays 'none' in the drop down?... I know we can click the list and see it, but seems like it'd look nicer if it displayed NW.

Example of idea.

Lord Bob July 22 2008 10:28 PM EDT

Great idea. But it may be confusing to new players.

I like the idea for NW on the equip page and don't see how it would be confusing. Sure new players might ask what it means but then that is part of learning the game. Also, my font is still small and while I have no problem reading it I can see how some may.

Sorry, that's a little bigger than I thought it was going to be!

Browser is latest FF.

QBPixel Sage July 23 2008 12:14 AM EDT

WhAt?!!? I'm using the latest FF too on a Mac. And I don't have ginormous text like that. Hmmm.....

BluBBen July 23 2008 12:21 AM EDT

Don't mind GW, we all know he got large things....

Colonel Custard [The Knighthood] July 23 2008 1:07 AM EDT

It feels good to know I'm at the top of somebody's fight list.

I'm using FF, but I haven't really updated to the new version yet, because I've been too busy. My font seems a little bit smaller, still, but I may have resized it one size too small after playing around with Ctrl + and Ctrl - after seeing this thread.

JW: you could try hitting Ctrl - as long as the rest of things are still able to be read.

QBJohnnywas July 23 2008 1:09 AM EDT

Yeah, I know, but it doesn't actually affect anything. Just looks a bit ugly.

LOL @ your horrendously humongous text! :)
