Font size?

The font size on the site has become enormous this morning. Is this deliberate?

Was just about to start a thread on this. I thought maybe it was just my laptop playing up! Is it a glitch in the Orgtrix?

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who saw this. I usually keep it at 110% magnification, but then it was like 200% all of a sudden.

You can decrease or increase the font on any site by using Ctrl and the + or - key. On a Mac, it's Command + / -. You can go back to 100% by Ctrl/Command then the number 0.

On an Android tablet, you can click the Settings button, and adjust the size of the font. It's not unchangeable. It's a computer and the basic options are the same across the board.

Sorry, all.

Ben had to make a few changes last night and this was an unintended side-effect! It will get sorted soon.

Thanks for your advice! My tablet is an Ipad, not sure how to fix it in IOS.

So, I dusted off the good ol' computer and adjusted the fontsize, easy peasy biggrin

On iPad, you can use two fingers and enlarge or shrink the page in general. The site depends on how it reacts to that gesture. (It's the same gesture you'd use to enlarge a photo and zoom in.)

You can also go to a Reader version of a page, if available. On your iPad, in Safari, in the URL area to the left, there is an icon with 4 short horizontal lines (to the left of where you'd type www....). Tap that, and it'll take you into Reader mode. It'll bring up a text-only simpler version of the page, and often it'll have a small A and big A to the right to adjust font size.

Thanks for clearing this up.

Since you are, in my opinion, one of the most helpful computer experts on the org (seriously, I really appreciate all the kind help and advice you always give), I´d like to know if the advice above will change just the way we see the org, or my laptop´s settings in general.

Maybe I should just give it a try and see but I don´t want to ruin the font size on other pages.

(I´m talking about the advice given above...to push the control key while using the mouse wheel).

Won´t this affect my other tabs as well?

It´s just the org that´s gigantic right now.

Oh, I see! Thank you so much for your help Trivial.
Tried the Reader version and voilà, works perfectly.

Working and reading on an Ipad works so much better for me.

The founder was tinkering with the org last. He will get it back into shape. The font is HUGE. Just reduce your font size for now till it is fixed.


Chat room is wonky and is limping.

Yeah, sorry about that - it looks normal on my phone, but not elsewhere. False alarm!

Good way to describe it in general.
