Admin Font TOO small

  • Author

    I have normal eyesite and have twice tried wordpress – each time for a few days – only to end up switching to another system provided by my host, because the font in the admin area is just toooooo small and toooooo faint. How can I change this? I’m not talking about when writing, I’m still just trying to setup a new website, so I’m refering to behind the scenes, throughout the system. Even here in this forum I have the screen in google chrome increased to 150%.

    Is there anyway to fix this? otherwise, i may have to use another product, but I really don’t care for the end results in the other one.

    The blog I need help with is



    I click
    Ctrl +
    and you screen will zoom at each click

    The Information about using your browser to zoom in on pages is accurate, but there may well be another underlying problems or variations with your site.

    Are you aware that there are different flavors of WordPress? Our answers here on these forums may not be accurate or conclusive answers to your question: our software platform is very different.



    No, i’m not clear on the differences, between them, but will try to figure it out.
    as for the zoom idea, that’s really not what i’m interested in. I’m interested in being able to adjust the size of the default font in “under the hood.” that would make the reading more readable, without enlarging every darned part of the screen. Again, i have decent eyesight, but am straining to read the dashboard, etc.

    Well, sorry if i’m in the wrong place, but if this message/complaint can get to someone who’ll listen, that’d be great.



    Basically, since you have a Wp.ORG blog, you can change this, but you need to be at to find out how. Since we can’t do it on our blogs, we don’t have instructions for it.
