Font size

Recommended Posts

I don't really know when this happened but up until recently we could resize the font in our posts. I noticed the change when I was pasting the text of an article and the font was about 1/2 inch tall and the resize option was no longer there.

Short Version:  I removed it but added it back.  I hadn't considered that it would cause a problem if pasting formatted text was allowed but there was no way for you to shrink larger fonts.


Long Version:  A long time ago, I registered TGO with Google for their analytics abilities.  It helps me make sure that we are at or near the top of search results for things related to firearms and 2A laws in Tennessee.  They send out weekly reports to show me how we're doing and also to make me aware of any problems that might be present in TGO's website that would cause usability or searchability to suffer.

Lately they've been dinging us on large fonts and problems caused by "broken HTML".


The latter of the two is a problem sometimes when people copy and paste text from other sites and their browsers bring over the underlying HTML code rather than just pasting the formatted text itself and allowing TGO's software to decide how best to display it.  This doesn't happen very often and honestly doesn't affect our scores too much.

The former of two, the use of large fonts, happens more often and dings us on our readability and usability scores for people on mobile devices.  Unfortunately it tracks back to a few members who commonly use large, bold fonts every time they post.  I'm not calling anyone out, but Google is.  🙂  If that shoe fits you, please consider enlarging the font in your browser's built in zoom / magnification settings rather than setting your font to "20" and Bold within the editor.


Neither of these are significant enough of problems for me to implement an imperfect solution.  So, I put the font size button back in the editor.

Also, this article might be of help to any of you who routinely make your text larger inside the editor on TGO.   When you do that, the only text you're making easier for you to see is your own.  If you want to make everyone's text easier to see, try this:

How do I make the text bigger in Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Opera? (digitalcitizen.life)


The older I get the harder it is for me to read small text too.  🙂
