Larger Buttons Needed for HOME, NEW TOPIC, etc
« on: May 27, 2011, 02:12:34 PM »
Hi all,

I am using 1.1.13

barkingdogproblem.org/forum
Core Default (I have copied this --so I can edit---but I have no idea how to edit).

I am in need of larger buttons for :

HOME, HELP, SEARCH, PROFILE, LOGOUT, etc which is located towards to the top left of the screen..

These letters are too small for some of my readers or posters.

Also--- can we make the letters larger for:
MARK READ, NOTIFY, NEW TOPIC

Is there a mod for this?

Thank you for any help!

In the style.css file of your theme you can change the fontsize for the menu on about line #329
Change this to the font size you need:
font-size: 9px;

You'll also want to make the same change on about line #387. Both of these changes will also reflect in the "MARK READ" buttons.

Oh brother!  :) I have to edit now--- never done that before, but I am going to try right now and see if it works..

There are no line numbers under the CSS.

Here is my ccs:
Code: [Select]
/* Normal, standard links. */
a:link
{
   color: #476C8E;
   text-decoration: none;
}
a:visited
{
   color: #476C8E;
   text-decoration: none;
}
a:hover
{
   text-decoration: underline;
}

/* Navigation links - for the link tree. */
.nav, .nav:link, .nav:visited

If you use Firefox, add Firebug and try editing. However it is temporary, but you will get the idea.

You need to edit it with a file editor. Use something like Notepad++. When you open the file you'll see line numbers in the editor. Change the stuff you need to, then re-upload the file back to your site.

Thank you sooooooooo much!  I got it!

I downloaded Notepad++ and followed your directions as to the line numbers!
I am getting so smart in here!  :)

Thanks again and again!
