Quote from: Paulsa on May 04, 2022, 04:23:22 PMThe default post font size is too small for some people with poor vision or older ones. It would be a courtesy to those who cannot see tiny font to increase it. The ability to change this in the Admin panel would make this a quick and useful option.
Quote from: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on May 05, 2022, 11:22:20 AMWell, most browsers also have a built in setting for font size alone. Brave, Chrome and Edge for example all have 5 different text sizes built in.
Quote from: gevv on May 06, 2022, 05:46:58 AMThis is a big problem in my opinion, font size is small for everyone young and old.
Quote from: Steve on May 06, 2022, 07:57:52 AMNor I ...Why bloat the software with features that very few will utilize when the above options are available?
Quote from: Arantor on May 06, 2022, 08:15:16 AMIn any case how do you know very few would use it? Did you ask a statistically relevant sample including people with visual impairments?
Quote from: FrizzleFried on May 06, 2022, 10:54:56 AMThat said... I admit that I subscribe more to Arantors way of thinking. The way I see things is that I would rather have a feature available to me that I do not use than one not available to me that I really want. While I do understand the attraction to not offer everything in the world + the kitchen sink, sometimes a bit of a compromise CAN be a good thing...

QuoteI only learned that browsers even had multiple font sizes from this topic - and I've been doing this stuff for literal decades at this point.

Quote from: Antechinus on May 06, 2022, 04:47:34 PMIf the break points are set in em rather than in px, making the theme equally responsive for varying base font sizes becomes automatic. The layout will change at appropriate places depending on the base font size selected by the user.In fact, I consider this such a no-brainer that I did it in Elk alpha immediately after that project split from SMF. It has worked right from the start. It would have done in it SMF 2.1 too, if there hadn't been a split.
QuoteAccessibility concernsTo best accommodate people who adjust a site's text size, use ems when you need a <length> for your media queries.Both em and px are valid units, but em works better if the user changes the browser text size.
