Font Too Small On Blog

  1. Help I found a relative post to this and it states resolved, but mine is still ongoing.
    The font on Freshly theme and Mysty theme went tiny! I have checked the code, deleted and re-entered. Help is seriously appreciated.
    http://drlisab.wordpress.com ( too small to read)
    http://whentoworry.wordpress.com ( smaller than before)

    Thank you in advance for your help! :)

  2. You're first post, when I view it side-by-side with my test blog with Mistylook looks the same and looks the same as I remember it always looking. You're second post however was copied and pasted from MS Word, which is not at all a good thing to do since MS Word does not speak HTML and will bring in a whole bunch of code that will mess things up.

    I'm viewing your blogs with Safari 3.1.2 and Firefox 2.0.0.16, both on Mac and both are quite forgiving and will actually hide a lot of issues that IE6 and IE7 will not. What browser are you using?

  4. Thank you I am using firefox but my client uses IE. I thought I cleaned up the code ( I deleted entire post) cut and pasted from notepad. She is mainly concerned with the Dr.Lisab one, however in truth I think it was the way it always looked. Thanks for your answers on Mysty ....any on the other?

  5. Another thing, is that perhaps your browser was inadvertently set to reduce the font text size displayed. Since I don't know what browser you are using, I cannot tell you how to make sure it is set at the "default" magnification.

    In Safari, it is on the view menu, and in FF for Mac, it is under view > text size. I assume it would be similar for Internet Explorer.

  6. Thanks. I am using firefox, but I believe that the issue is with the crud that word puts in, however when I try to redo it....it happens again. all of the font on the drlisb is wrong...erg...I wish I knew code better. :) Thank you for your replies I do appreciate it.

  7. tsp, I have an honest question (springs to mind everytime I see complains about font size): all browsers have a zoom-in command - doesn't anybody use it?

  8. LOL...Yes I do, and I know a bit of code however explaining that to a client is almost impossible ( this one anyway)...pages look different in each browser, browser version and set up of said browser. People tell my client " I couldn't read it" she wants me to make it universal, no explaining in the world will help this one obtain a grasp of the variation on blogs. Thanks for all your help!

  9. @panaghiotisadam use it from time to time on sites that have really small text, but quite truthfully I don't think too many people even know it exists. A while ago, I had somehow set my browser down two sizes on the text and didn't realize it. I had certainly not done it on purpose, that is why I suggested checking it.

    @drlisab, it seems that sometimes some of the code remains in the post, so if you copy it all out and then paste it back in, some of the code is still there. What you can do is to delete the post and then recreate it again, not using Word, and then backdate it to the date and time of your original post.

    There is also a button (looks a little like an eraser) on the toolbar which will supposedly remove all code from a post. You might try opening the post, selecting everything in the post, and then clicking that button and see if it will fix the issue. I've had spotty luck with it, but sometimes it works.

  10. @drlisab, the only other way to permanently make the text larger would be changing it in the CSS with the paid CSS upgrade, but since formatting in a post would override the CSS settings, things could still get messed up if the type were to be set smaller in the coding in the post.
