Support » Plugin: bbPress » So Far, So Good, BUT…

  • 05/11/2014 @10:30 pm – Good evening. This probably isn’t the place to ask a question, but… So far, BBPress is working fine, but I have 2 questions. First and foremost, HOW can I increase the font size, it’s too small for pre-geriatric ladies to read. The rest of my themes are normal size, but when it comes to the forum pages, they are way too small. Secondly, I want to do an introductory page for the forum, with the topics listed. Do I need to change themes or shouldn’t this be possible everywhere? At the moment, I’m using the JustWrite theme.

    To answer the question specifically, BBPress is actually pretty good. I’m old enough to remember the bulletin board programs that were out before the Internet went commercial; they were a lot harder than this! So, kudos to the authors. However, please answer the questions at your earliest convenience. I have one week before summer school begins… God Bless.

  • First time on this forum.
    Noticed that it has been a month since you asked this question.
    Seems like a long time to be left hanging.

    So, without any first hand knowledge, my guess would be to look at the CSS style-sheets. If the application is properly designed, the font sizes for entries should be specified in the style-sheet[s].

    BTW: I go back to pre-internet BBs as well.
    We have come a long way since those days.

    Thank you so much for responding. That was approx. 6 wks. ago; summer school just ended last week! And my fonts are still small. BTW – my site is: — New Dispensation Websites.

    I will take a look at your suggestion. In between the BBS’s and now were mom-and-pop ISPs, before the incumbent telecoms ran them all out of business… will let you know how I come out.

    God Bless,

    If you haven’t figured it out yet…

    In order to change the size of the forum description, on the forum home page, add “Code 1” to style.css in the Theme Editor.

    If you want to change the size of the forum posts, add “Code 2” to style.css in the Theme Editor.

    Code 1

    	font-size: 12pt !important;

    Code 2

    	font-size: 12pt !important;

    You can just copy and paste it at the end of the style.css file. If the font still isn’t big enough, you can change 12pt to 14pt, 16pt, etc…

    Let me know if this fixes it. Thanks.
