Increase Forum Font Size?

Is there any way to increase the font size for the forums? Not when posting, but viewing. Would be nice for Mobile Safari in portrait mode.

There should be an option to change the font size in Settings > Safari.

Hope that helps.

You can resize the font to any size you want with a Bookmarklet, a JavaScript saved as a bookmark.

Original page:



Select Bookmarklet "Change font size"



Type in the size you want, in this case I have the default set to 22pt.



Resized page.



Here is the javascript I use.

Quote:
javascript:void(f=prompt('New%20font%20size?','22p t'));for(i=0;i<document.getElementsByTagName('*'). length;i++)void(document.getElementsByTagName('*')[i].style.fontSize=f);

EDIT: For some reason when this post is saved a space is being added to the JavaScript above at "22p t" it should be "22pt" after you paste it into your bookmark address remove the space as it stops the script from working.

To install open this page in your iPhone\Touch, bookmark the page as normal, copy the above script, edit your bookmark and paste the script into where the address should go and rename your bookmark you can even add an emoji character to the bookmark name if you have them enabled.




NOTE: The changes the script makes are not permanent and only occur on the page you are viewing, if you refresh the page or go to another page you need to run the script again.

Some others can be found HERE at Safari+
