Increase font size?
« on: August 22, 2020, 06:59:10 pm »
Would it be possible to increase the font size here (see screenshots)?
When some discussion has more than one page, clicking on that small numbers is the only way to list it.
And the title Lazarus » Forum » Miscellaneous » Suggestions is the only place where you can read in which category is the forum topic located.
Lazarus 2.1.0 r64546 FPC 3.3.1 r40507 x86_64-linux-qt Chakra, Qt 4.8.7/5.13.2, Plasma 5.17.3
Lazarus 1.8.2 r57369 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64 Wine 3.21

Try Eye-Candy Controls: https://sourceforge.net/projects/eccontrols/files/

Not sure... Others might dislike. And not sure, the server admin might have to crawl through the css on the server..... But thats for him to say if he wants to....

Btw, there is a previous / next pair of links. (below the last page on each page). But it has the same size.

If you have grease monkey:
Code: Text  [Select][+][-]
  1. // ==UserScript==
  2. // @name     lazarus_forum
  3. // @version  1
  4. // @grant    none
  5. // @include https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/*
  6. // @include http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/*
  7. // @require https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js
  8. // ==/UserScript==
  9.  
  10.  
  11. $(".pagelinks").each(function() { $(this).css("font-size", "2em"); });
  12.

Previous/Next refers to topics, not pages. If in doubt consult your optometrist. ;)

I doubt my optometrist can cure my laziness. I simply jumped to conclusions without verifying.

Don't most web browsers have an option similar to "Never use font sizes smaller than [nn]" (Safari) or "Minimum font size [nn]" (SeaMonkey) to name the two I use?

@trev

Good idea.

Firefox --> Preferences --> Font & Colors --> Advanced --> Minimum Font Size

Preserves my eyes.

Thanx.

You also have to ensure that the checkbox "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" is unchecked to enforce the minimum preference chosen.
