I have been looking at the stylesheets available and most are really nice, some are just fantastic works of art...
The only problem I see is that the nicer they are the smaller the font...
I need larger fonts.
Can anyone suggest a couple of nice stylesheets with large fonts?

I have a mod over at ubbdev which allows your user to adjust the font size on a per-page basis to what they feel is best, which would allow you to only have to maintain 1 copy of a style vs several for differant font-sizes.

Generally, only one copy of a style is created as they have to be updated and maintained; and when you get to users who create numerous styles, it can be quite a handful to make all of their styles (in my case, about 25 and growing) in several differant revisions.

You can also take and update the style yourself, it's fairly easy to do, just change the "font-size" element to whatever you feel comfortable with while editing the style through the style editor in the control panel.

Hi Gizmo,

Can you provide the link directly to the mod, please? I looked around a bit but didn't see it.

What I really need is a way that users can (usually in IE) view font size as largest. Somehow that functionality doesn't work on my forums since the upgrade to threads. I noticed that it works on the UBBDev forum. Any advice?

Thanks much!
Bill

Thanks! Do you know why the browsers view sizes don't work with this version of threads?

I know changing font size in Firefox works, with Ctrl and (+/-). Not working with IE, I guess it's the way the font sizes are declared in the stylesheet perhaps.

yes and if someone must override it more permanently, they can go the greasemonkey route for any particular site.

eg: i'm doing something similar with the black/gold font type for this site

Thanks for all you do, Rick!
