  • [Forum] The font used in Quick Reply and Edit Post is too small

    I see this has been addressed as a bug. Was confirmed to be a bug, and then deemed not a bug lol.

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/proje...?issueid=32422

    Probably right, not a bug, just prefrence. I looked all through the stylevars and found no place to increase this font size.

    I tried using Lynn's method of using firebug, but only came up with "wysiwyg" but no stylevar to match.


    Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks.

    Do a search on ".wysiwyg" in your templates and you'll see what stylevars are used for that class.

        Look in vbulletin.css:
        HTML Code:
        .wysiwyg {
            font: {vb:stylevar font};
        }
        And look at the stylevar font and you'll see it right there.

          Lynne, Thanks so much, I am sure Ill figure it out eventually. I can find that, but cant find where to change the value.....you have me in the right direction.......... I will let you move on to help the smarter people LOL.

          On a side note, all those bashing VB4, it might just be lack of understanding on your part lol.

            Style Manager > Stylevars > font (under the Common area). But, that will change everywhere the font is used. If you just want to change it for the wysiwig, then you should just add your own line with the new font size soemwhere *after* vbulletin defines it:
            Code:
            .wysiwyg {
                font-size: xxx;
            }

              Since there's no logical reason I can think of explaining why one would want smaller fonts when typing something than when reading something, my guess is that the default will be changed.

              Does anyone really want a smaller font when writing something than when reading something?

                That did the trick. Thanks Lynne. For what its worth, I think you guys at VB.COM and VB.ORG are doing a great job in a somewhat hostile environment. Some of us think so anyways

                  I dunno, as evidenced, im not real well versed in style sheets, but I do know that in in other aspects of coding, one little thing can have a cascade effect on others. Maybe it will be changed down the line, but if this is the worst thing I have had to deal with in 6 upgrades, Ill call it a good day

                    Could you please provide the steps needed to find this in the style manager? Some of us find it a little hard to find things in the new set up. Thank you.

                      Your actually manually adding the line, not changing the value in the stylevars. The highlighted text was what I added. Click image for larger version

                        Well, I changed that and hit save and reload, but it didn't change the font size. I'll try hitting just save this time.

                          Ok, I tried it on 24 and it is bigger. Font sizes of 15 and 18 didn't seem to change it that much. Thank you for the help. :-)

                          I wonder what vbulletin has their size set on??

                            You are putting some units after the number, right?

                              I put 24px I think. I created a vbulletin ticket on the issue as my site has some older people on it with eyesight problems and they are complaining about the textbox font size. This is the response I got back:

                              This is what I currently have in the vbulletin.css file:

                              font-size: 24px;
